We Lost The G performed by Brannon Hancock and Xenia Nazarene Church

Many thanks to Music Pastor Brannon Hancock and the music team at Xenia Church of the Nazarene for including one of my sillier songs (We Lost The G) in their Sunday service this past week. They even made a funny little music video to go with it. I never thought one of my songs would be featured in a video with the Rock, but here it is. Thanks my friends. For those of you interested, you can buy my version of the song buy clicking on this CDBaby link.cdbaby-music-store-logo

Love Drawn Near Music Video

I wrote this song for my son, Alexander Grayson, and decided to make a little music video out of it. It can be downloaded at Bandcamp.com in case anyone wants to use it for Father’s Day this year.

Blessings,

Lyrics:

Love Drawn Near (Song for My Son)
Rick Lee James

Verse 1
There’s so much to learn as I’m watching you grow my son.
You’re still a baby and there is much work to be done.
Don’t wait around for your life begin, your life has already begun

(So)Follow me boy, I’ll help you learn all that you can.
There’s so many steps on the road to becoming a man.
There will be days when I can’t be around, so listen as close as you can.
These are the things I am praying for you, that I hope you’ll understand

Chorus
I want you to know more than just how to walk, I want you to walk in the light.
To Love the Lord God with your Heart and your Soul, with every last ounce of your might.
There will be doubts and there will be fears but don’t let them ruin your way.
Love is greater than fear, and God is love drawn near.

Verse 2
(There’s) no greater love than to lay down your life for a friend.
But there will be days when you doubt you have any of them.
Some people never learned how to love well, but they prob’ly need it the most
Remember God’s love is not just for your friends, it’s even for your greatest foes.
Chorus
I want you to know more than just how to walk, I want you to walk in the light.
To Love the Lord God with your Heart and your Soul, with every last ounce of your might.
There will be doubts and there will be fears but don’t let them ruin your way.
Love is greater than fear, and God is love drawn near.

Bridge:
Your heart will dance, your heart will sing, your heart will cry, but as long as it beats
Let it belong to the Lord of all things for the pure in heart will see God

Verse 3
There is a lie that says life is about getting more.
But Christ will be found when you walk with the weak and the poor.
I’m here to pray that your heart will be full with a love that is faithful and kind
Blessed is the man who will seek nothing less than the Kingdom of God in this life.

Chorus
I want you to know more than just how to walk, I want you to walk in the light.
To Love the Lord God with your Heart and your Soul, with every last ounce of your might.
There will be doubts and there will be fears but don’t let them ruin your way.
Love is greater than fear, and God is love drawn near.

New Rick Lee James YouTube Channel

Greetings Internet,

In an attempt to have a more memorable YouTube address I recently started a new YouTube Channel at a super catchy web address. Ready for it? Are you sure? It’s really hard to remember. Okay, here it is:

 YouTube.com/RickLeeJames 

Because it is a new page there are hardly any views yet, so if you have some time and want to hear some Rick Lee James official music, including some Christmas stuff, go to

YouTube.com/RickLeeJames

Below is a sample of what you will find there.  Let me know what you think.

Blessings,

Rick Lee James
