The Reason We Live

MP3 Powerpoint Leadsheet

For anyone interested, I wrote the melody first, and thought it might make a reasonable pop song. But when it came to writing words, the Lord's Prayer is what entered my mind, and eventually the rest came. Verse 2 was less heartfelt until about Feb 2010, when a moment of honesty (yes I have one occasionally!) made me want to write about my failures as a Christian.

Once this was written, I thought that the song was strong enough to record properly, so I asked Adrian Hannan to do this in a Hillsong style. He found a great vocalist in Jay McNeil, and I was blessed to have the song come up so well.
