Here’s a short clip of my newest gospel/worship tune “I Want To Know Christ”. The lyrics are taken from Philippians 3:10, 11 where the apostle Paul says:

I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to resurrection from the dead. (NIV)

My Pastor has said that this is one of his favorite passages of the Bible. He’s also said that black gospel (choir included) is one of his favorite styles of worship music. So I did what any kiss-up would do and wrote a song using those two elements.

Some of my demos sound good enough to pass for the finished product, this is not one of them. There are still many elements (horns, organ, piano) to be added but I thought I’d just go ahead and post what I’ve got so far. Promise you won’t laugh.
