With All My Heart by Ben Chilcote

This song was written for week #8 of the WCS Songwriting Club. I’ve been so busy I haven’t been able to participate in the songwriting club that I started! I felt compelled to really pump this out so I forced myself to keep it simple – which is NOT easy!  It’s in a hymn format and the idea behind the song was to come up with ideas that one might sing first thing in the morning.  I suggested in the club it’s the opposite of a lullaby so they suggested maybe it’s a wake-aby 🙂

With All My Heart (Morning Song) by Ben Chilcote

With my first breath I come to see
You’ve been watching over me
For this day that your mercy
Has allowed to be
With all my heart I will sing to you
With all my heart I will sing to you

All you plans I do not see
You have good in mind for me
Whether sun on my face
Or clouds that cover me
With all my heart I will sing to you
With all my heart I will sing to you

May I remember everyday
My first breath is a gift of grace…
Until death do we meet
In eternal embrace
With all my heart I will sing to you
With all my heart I will sing to you
With all my strength I will cling to you
With all my heart I will sing to you
