Song Opportunity – “Nothing Without You”…try it on May 10th at your church!

Once again,  http://www.greatworshipsongs.com/ has another free song offering if you are a registered member at their site.  If you are, check out the latest freebie “Nothing Without You” by Bebo Norman and Mitch Dane.  If you’re not registered; consider joining today.

 

From the site, you can download a free MP3, leadsheet, chord sheet, and a cut capo chart for this song in the “free download area.”  If you listen to the MP3, you will notice that the acoustic guitar sounds real full.  This is the cut capo.  The cut capo arrangement of this song is real sweet, but you can play it without one as well.

 

I hope to use this song at our church on May 10, because it goes well with the Gospel lesson which is John 15:1 -8.  In fact, try singing this song with your praise band during the Offering and step right up to the mic and before singing, recite this verse:

 

In this morning’s Gospel lesson, Jesus said…“I am the vine; you are the branches.  If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”  – John 15:5

 

The lyrics in this song go particularly well as an Offering.  It is however a band song unless you transpose it to a lower key.  Most people in your congregation will not be able to reach the high E notes.

 

Here’s the song lyrics from http://www.greatworshipsongs.com/:

 

Nothing Without You

 

Verse 1

Take these hands and lift them up

For I have not the strength to praise you near enough

See, I have nothing

I have nothing without you

 

Verse 2

And take my voice and pour it out

Let it sing the songs of mercy I have found

For I have nothing

I have nothing without you

 

Chorus

And all my soul needs is all your love

To cover me, so all the world will see

That I have nothing without you

 

Verse 3

Take my body and build it up

May it be broken as an offering of love

For I have nothing

I have nothing without you

 

Chorus

And all my soul needs is all your love

To cover me so all the world will see

That I have nothing

That I love you, yeah

With all my heart

With all my soul

With all my mind

And all the strength I can find

 

Verse 4

Take my time here on this earth

And let it glorify all that you are worth

For I am nothing

I am nothing without you
