Still I Believe

Still meditating on Hebrews 11, specifically where it says of Moses:

He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a short time. He regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasures of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward.

This is another quick laptop recording in our dining room during nap time. We played it yesterday as an offertory during worship.

Still I Beleive  (listen)  (chord chart)

All I wanted, left me wanting,
Nothing was enough.
Then you saved me, clothed, forgave me,
Proved to me your love.

Still I believe, I hope and I seek,
The Kingdom of Christ the risen Son.
O may I receive, the faith that I need,
To hold on until the day he comes.

Dreams and riches, my ambitions,
All have turned to dust.
But your favor lasts forever,
This is all I want.

Still I believe, I hope and I seek,
The Kingdom of Christ the risen Son.
O may I receive, the faith that I need,
To hold on until the day he comes.

Let your Spirit endure,
Through the tempting and thirst,
Still it’s you I adore, So much more.

You have heard my prayer and groaning,
Still my answer waits.
Hope in your unfailing love,
Is all that now remains.

Still I believe, I hope and I seek,
The Kingdom of Christ the risen Son.
O may I receive, the faith that I need,
To hold on until the day he comes.
Until the day he comes.
O may your kingdom come,
O may your kingdom come.

  1. Nathan–

    I would be interested in knowing your recording setup — you seem to be able to get really good results recording from your laptop; I have been doing that for years, and my recordings never sound as professional.

    You have a talent for writing interesting songs that are also singable for a congregation!

    1. Hey Karl,

      I use my basic macbook with the built in mic in the laptop screen and hit record. I do a little eq to make space for everything and sometimes add a touch of reverb to give things an environment but mostly (due to time constraints) I keep it as simple as possible to communicate what I think is the basic elements of the song. Thanks so much for your kind words. Let me know if you have any other questions.

      Nathan
