More Than Gold
10 antwoorden

Hi :)

So I've been asked to write a song for the background of a video my school Christian Union is doing as a promo for an event called More Than Gold. The event is taking place on 28th July 2012 in Chesham, Buckinghamshire. It's basically a mini festival, minus the camping, for 2 days. But I've never really written for anything other than my own personal worship sessions in my bedroom. So I thought I'd come here for some help.
Here are my lyrics so far. The pace of the song has to be fast. And the song is called 'more than gold' like the event, and therefore needs to be included somewhere in the song.

verse 1:
We're gonna live our lives
We're gonna stand and fight
For you're the one, the one,
that death could not hold

verse 2:
Through the darkest night
We'll come out the other side
For your love, your love,
is worth more than gold

I need a chorus and a tag section. Any lyrics or help would be very much appreciated :)
Thanks!

hi there,

good start on this song, i really hope the event goes well.

can i have a bit more info about what the event is trying to do? it will help in getting lyrical ideas.
is it an event aimed at christians or non-christians or both?

i think the 'your love is worth more than gold' is the strongest line in the song and probably worth
building the chorus around rather than the verse.

im happy to give you some ideas if you want to email me personally at

God bless,

hi Gav,

I've just emailed you.

As for anyone else who stumbles on this post- the event is like an outreach event. All the local churches are getting together.

There is loads of stuff going on in the day, for all ages, and it's a total free event. In a way, it reminds me of a smaller version of the Big Church Day Out that happened in West Sussex a few weeks ago. It's for the whole church, and a way to reach out to the local community by glorifying Jesus' name :)

hi there,

are you sure you have emailed me at the correct address?

i havent got anything yet sorry.

cheers,
gav.

hey Gav,

I re-emailed you.

Sorry for the late reply to your post by the way, school was a bit crazy this week!

Cheers,
Katie

hi katie,

ive still got no email? maybe theres a problem.

i'll communicate over this site instead.

has the song come on at all? do you have a tune or any more words?

Cheers,
gav.

here's some thoughts on some lyrics whilst i have a sec:
what do you think?

CHORUS:
For your love, your love,
is worth more than gold
Your love, your love
is offered to all.

verse 1:
We're gonna live our lives
For a treasure that lasts
you're the one, the one,
for you will satisfy, our every need
with your truth and grace.

cheers,
gav.

Really like both chorus and verse, but particularly verse.

Thanks so much, it's really helpful :)

Cheers,
Katie

no probs katie,

heres a 2nd verse idea.

verse 2:
We're gonna tell the world,
Of your saving love,
you're the one, the one,
For you will help us run to win the prize,
Everlasting life.

God bless,
gav.

I like this one a lot. I showed the lyrics to my school CU and we started to put them to music and stuff. I think we're getting there now.
Thanks for all your help.
God Bless,
katie

cheers,
