Time to brag about the music team I am honored to play bass with on Sundays. Each one is an amazing musician. We have Amy on keys, Patti on organ, Terry on rhythm guitar, Mike on electric guitar, our drummers rotate and they are Josh, Nathan & Josh, then there’s the bass. Most of the time I play, but Phillip also plays at times. For percussion, we have Jackson, Cody and Cas. Our choir director is amazing and very anointed of God, Valinda Chargois.
We played an awesome song called, Ocean Deep. This song was originally written as a poem by Savannah McKee at the age of 12 years old. She then took the song to the piano and began putting it to music. The bridge was added and the song developed. Needless to say, she is a very talented young lady. The words as much as the music touch my heart. Our congregation loved the song performed by our music team and choir. Once you read the words, I’m sure you’ll feel the same way. Some songs just pull at your heart. This is one of them. It talks about the greatness of our God. He is worthy of all praise.
Here are the lyrics to Ocean Deep...
If I wrote about Your love,
I’d run out of paper.
If I sang about Your mercy,
I’d run out of breath.
There’s not enough paint in the world,
To paint a picture of Your splendor.
There’s not enough words to describe,
The awesome wonder of Your power.
Of Your power
Your mercy’s ocean deep
Your love is where I want to be.
Your grace is more than I can ever believe.
Pour out Your spirit
Pour out Your love
Let it overwhelm me
Let it overflow
Is ocean deep
Let it overwhelm me
There’s not enough paint in the world
To paint a picture of Your splendor
There’s not enough word to describe
The awesome wonder of Your power
Of Your power.
These words were certainly inspired by God.
Many young people have been affected by this song. Music is so powerful. Add the anointing of God to a song and you have a means to change lives.
The project that includes Ocean Deep can be purchased at Amazon.com. I would recommend this project to any and everyone. The McKees pastor in Katy, Texas. Their choir is second to none. Do yourself a favor and order this cd. You won’t be sorry.
Until next time, this is Cheryl Johnson saying, B# and God Bless you all!
