Take Cover #2
Due to lack of time because of so many rehearsals and church services to play in these days, I’m not quite content with this week’s installment of my Take Cover series, but anyway, this is what you get with one-take recordings.
Music and Lyrics by Rich Mullins & Beaker
originally recorded by Rich Mullins
Rich Mullins was one of the great Christian musicians in the 80’s and 90’s, but sadly died in 1997. He was a great musician, and also a wonderful lyricist. So many things he wrote and said have touched me deeply, and reading his biography An Arrow Pointing To Heaven had a huge influence on my life. I never would have thought it would be possible to get to know yourself so much better by reading another man’s biography …
As you may know, I’m currently working on a first songbook of Rich’s songs, and I think Brother’s Keeper was his first song I ever transcribed – though it won’t be in the first book.
Here’s another list for you – my favourite Rich Mullins songs at the moment:
- Peace (A Communion Blessing From St. Joseph’s Square)
- Sing Your Praise To The Lord
- Bound To Come Some Trouble
- The Color Green
- The River
- My Deliverer
- Screen Door
- … And I Love You
