Thanks everyone for your input. Yes I write my own stuff. This song though really moved me to write it as “backsliding” is a concept I struggle to grasp. The original tune “I Told You So” was just the opposite of God’s Love so these lyrics came to mind. Thank you all for responding, I have to go to church now..:). and yes, I too think some music cannot be easily redeemed if at all.
I thought it was very good.I enjoyed it a lot.
I tried to send this in a private message but for some reason the site wouldn’t let me.
My brother is a songwriter and cowrote a song on Randys 25th anniversary album called “Road To Surrender”I’ve been hoping Randy would think about the words that he sang and get his life straightened out.
The first verse goes:
Dear Lord, I’ve heard you know when somebody hits the bottom of their soul.
Oh Lord I hope you see, something that’s worth saving when you look at me.
I have no fight left in me now. I take my pride and lay it down.
And on my knees here at your feet, I’ll give you all that’s left of me.
Oh Lord this weary broken sinner is on the road to surrender
Some other people have recorded it too. One of my favorite songs he’s ever done.
