Description
This is a song I wrote for the Advent season. I sang it for church last Sunday, and recorded it that afternoon with my new Snowball mic. The voices and guitars are me playing 'live'. The bassline is a software orchestral bass from jampack 4. Time limitations meant that I chose to leave in some less than perfect moments, and I also discovered that the click track was faintly discernable under the guitars. Oh well. My new Snowball mic has a much warmer sound than anything I've used up until now.

Lyrics
Lord, prepare us for your advent, give us open hearts, we pray,

So your love will flow among us as we celebrate these days.

Word made flesh you came to earth, just a babe of lowly birth.

Lived your life as a man among men,

Gave your promise to come again.


Lord, Prepare us for your advent, give us holy hearts, we pray,

So your truth will shine out from us as we celebrate these days.

Light of the world, you came that day,

to save us from sin and to show us God's way.

We've seen your example, accepted your grace,

now make us the light for this time and this place.


Lord, prepare us for your advent, give us loving hearts, we pray,

So your Spirit lives among us as we celebrate these days.

Love incarnate, you came to be the bearer of God's true charity.

Let each believers own life now express

a bit of your love and holiness.


Lord, Prepare us for your advent, give us open hearts, we pray,

So your love will flow among us as we celebrate these days.

Leaving in imperfections..
...is what makes it art. Taking them out is only craft. But darned if I could find the imperfections here! Really nice! The guitars seemed clearer than the vocals. The vocals sound nice, just not as loud as the guitars, more distant. I would prefer that they were a little closer. It's a great melody. Not really a churchgoing type myself, as I am more of a Buddhist these days, still I enjoyed the lilting quality of this song.

Rare sound
Such sweet and pure voices. Gave me a bit of bad vibes about me picturing a TV-commersial for God being shown. But i certanly dont want to picture that, so elsewhat i find this tune quite odd and interesting. Your quality if real fine, the tones was pure positive and kept upper. As an old programmer i do find this to be something like an audio programmed mood. I still feel its directed ease and thats interesting.

Put some more stuff up, will listen with great joy and attention.

Absolutely beautiful.
You have a lovely voice and sing wonderful harmony with yourself. The guitar tone is sweet. This is a well-written song and all things considered is well arranged and produced. A very moving song.
