Song 50: Advent song (live) 52 song project

    • Music

Last week, Steve sang about Christmas. This week, Chris sings about advent. Sorry folks, there's no escape. Also, in a 52 song project first, this week's recording is taken from a live performance. We hope you enjoy it.

CHRIS: If you ever wonder how long we spend per song (or even if you don't) I want to tell you that simply to open this file, edit the start and end points, save it and convert it into an mp3 took 30 minutes. This song project would have been a lot easier if I'd invested in a new computer.

Anyway, I can't think of a worse way to mark the death of Christopher Hitchens than to share with you this song that I wrote at the request of my minister and performed in church last week. It's based around Mark 1, which was the reading last week, and it was sandwiched between two short sermons. (You can listen to that full segment--the two sermons and the song--here.)

And, being late for work, that's all I have to say about that.
Lyrics
Listen closely now
To all the wrong sounds
Trying to hear

Listen closely now
The lost will be found
The far will be near

She’s been calling in the wild
She’s been calling in the wild

Listen closely now
Straighten the path
Make way prepare

Listen closely now
The one you would search
soon will be here

She’s been calling in the wild
She’s been calling in the wild
To prepare for meek and mild
She’s been calling in the wild

Listen closely now
