Special thanks to Jessica Valle for taking these pictures of our music video shoot at the Dayton Arcade on July 15th, 2017. More Than The Watchman (Psalm 130).

I’m grateful to CCLI for featuring two more of my songs, published by Lifeway Worship. Two more of my music videos were just added to CCLI TV today. Special thanks to the directors of the two videos, Rick Stull (Christ Is Lord) and Jason Elam (The Invitation). This makes the third song from ‘Hymns, Prayers, and Invitations’ to be featured by CCLI.

CCLI is the easiest way to discover and legally use affordable media, content and resources while reducing the administrative headaches of copyright licensing search and compliance. … The best place to find licensed audio samples and lyrics along with vocal, chord and lead sheets from more than 300,000 songs of worship.

It was such an honor to discover that the music video and sheet music for “Advent Hymn (Watching, Waiting, Longing)” are being featured right now on CCLItv.com.

In the same way that purchasing a song from iTunes ensures that an artist is properly compensated for their work, CCLI guarantees a paycheck for worship song writers enabling churches to have real-time access to licensed Christian music and media while easing the burden of administration in the many complex issues related to copyright.

Thank you CCLI for featuring my music as we head into the Advent season.

Blessings,
Rick Lee James

“I love Advent Hymn (Watching, Waiting, Longing), which gives newness to the phrases of Isaiah. Watching, waiting, and longing is what we do now, and these songs help us do that in confidence. I anticipate that this album will be received as a great gift by many who will find their faith nourished and awakened by it.”
