Day Two In the Studio!


Today we slowed down the pace and worked on two songs. We worked from 9 to 3 on the form and groove of The Ten Commandments song.  One interesting decision arose in how to sum up the Second Commandment. Here’s what the ESV says:

“You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

Eventually, I decided on, “Do not worship man made things.” I know it’s incomplete, but we’ve got about 3 seconds, and that seemed to sum things up in a way kids could understand and parents could appreciate.

After figuring that out, I sang a scratch vocal. We decided to add an octave-up vocal double, and it was fun singing up high where the kiddos will be. This song will definitely have kids on it, as well as a special guest or two. After the Ten Commandments song, around 3:00, we moved to the Romans 8:28-39 song. Here’s the lyrics to that chorus:

And we know that in all things
God works for the good of those who love him
God works for the good of those who love him
for the good
for the good
for the good
for the good of those who love him

The rest of the song will be spoken word. Spoken by whom? We’ll get back to you on that.

Other side notes established today, Ben Shive does not drink caffeine. I, however, drink two cups of coffee every morning. We both reluctantly avoid cheese, making exceptions for pizza and homemade meals.

See you tomorrow!
