This is an MP3 recording that was finished in 1995. It came from an album that was never released. I teamed up with vocalist Laura Smith and you will hear the two of us singing our hearts out in this song, proclaiming what the King has done for us. Here are the lyrics with some commentary.

You have made me sound of mind – We discussed this in last weeks bun. We have not been given a spirit of fear but of power, love and s sound mind!
Your grace has touched my spirit – His grace, the unmerited favor that He bestows upon us, as a result of being born from above, quickens our spirit and we see the world through a different set of eyes.
You have calmed my troubled soul – This is a personal testimony on my part. When we believe in Him and put our faith in Him, he will give us peace that passed understanding.
And filled my heart with love for you – We love Him whom we have never seen. Talk about supernatural!
And when you hung on Calvary you hung tough for me. – This is the essence of salvation. WHen the Messiah shed His blood on Calvary, he did so once, for the remission of all the sins – the nasty stuff that all of us do – that would be committed by you and me throughout all time. By believing in Him who was sent – Yashua/Jesus, and understanding that His blood sacrificed for us leads us to right standing with God so that we are now called the sons and daughters of God.
Your love has made me come alive – We are all dead in our sins and will die in them unless we come to Him who is able to save us from our sins. When we are born from above – all we need to do to become born from above, is admit our sin and ask to be redeemed by His blood – he connects our spirit to Him. This is the basis of our joy, of what can grow into ineffable peace and joy.
I feel your presence in me – How does this work? I have no idea but it is life changing when it does! It has nothing to do with religion! It is a personal experience.
Someday I’ll see you face to face – This is the blessed hope of all believers!
Risen saviour sovereign Lord – The resurrection is the most pivotal point in all of history! It is the ultimate game changer and it spelled checkmate for The Fallen One!
And when you hung on Calvary you hung tough for me. –
I will praise your name – We sing our praise to Him who set us free from the bondage of sin and death.
Your unchanging the same – He is the same today, yesterday and forever!
For you are holy – Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord, God Most High!
You bought me with your blood and I rejoice – The Blood of Jesus!
You have made me sound of mind
You grace has touched my spirit
You have calmed my troubled soul
And filled my heart with love for you
And when you hung on Calvary you hung tough for me. – Repeat
