White As Snow (second posting)Posted: March 27, 2017
“Come now, let’s settle this,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool.” – Isaiah 1:18
I posted a live recording of us singing the song way back in 2009 when it was pretty new (and we were meeting in a movie theater, as you’ll see). There is more about the song “White As Snow” on that post. But I wanted to share an updated recording from my latest album, “The Other Side.”
As I was putting this album together I thought I would make studio versions of some of the congregational songs that are in the IPI songbook, “Songs of the Kingdom,” and this is one of them. I really enjoyed recording this one. I had a lot of fun playing the electric guitar parts. Had fun with the groove of the bass and drums as well, inspired in this arrangement by an 80’s song from my childhood. (Any guesses what song? Female artist, crazy outfits… “I hear the clock tick and think of you…” C’mon you know what it is…gosh I love that song!)
Anyway, with “White As Snow” it was cool returning to a song I had written a while back but we hadn’t really sung for a long time. The lyrics were new to me again and the prayerful sentiment of the song was so good for my soul.
Happy Monday! Enjoy…
