Great News! My new song LOCKDOWN PRAISE has been recorded with my vocals & guitars from here in the UK, but with instruments & production by Sounds of the Nations producer Tim Feder in Cape Town, South Africa! He’s such a great friend, musician & producer and I’m so grateful for his version of this song! (Find out more about Tim here https://www.soundsofthenations.com/tim-feder )
LOCKDOWN PRAISE is a real “song of the moment” – all about the fact that wherever you put us, whatever we face, we are not going to stop praising our God!
Maybe like me, you get tired of the ever-changing lockdown rules, the isolation and the endless guidelines for Places of Worship! While much of it is understandable, it’s also exhausting, confusing, debilitating! BUT WE ARE NOT GOING TO STOP PRAISING GOD!!
The lyrics of the upbeat chorus state:
They can lock me down, try and shut me up, calm me down and cut me off,
I’m never gonna stop praising, I’m never gonna stop praising.
They can ridicule, call me a fool, they can keep changing all the rules,
I’m never gonna stop praising, I’m never gonna stop praising!
The bridge goes on to state: There’s a voice of mercy in the Gospel, the whole world needs to hear. And there’s a sound the Church makes, when she’s singing, that changes atmospheres. That is why, I will sing!
The song is telling us that we, the Church, MUST NOT be muzzled, silent, quiet or shrink back! We were made for REVIVAL not mere survival. We have prophetic things to say, praises to release, gratefulness to wash our souls in each day and Gospel truths to share with the world. Don’t let 2020 make you silent – let it stir you to DECLARE like never before!
