about

(CLICK ON 'STRATHALBYN CHRISTIAN COLLEGE MUSIC' BELOW THE SONG NAME TO BUY THE SONG ON ITUNES)

As a part of the the 1AB and 1CD music courses at Strathalbyn Christian College, students are required to learn about the art of composition. This year the students of 1CMUS were required to compose a song that they would record and put on iTunes and bandcamp. In addition to this task, we decided to put all the money raised from this song towards a man named Asau who is a part of the international mission organization YWAM (Youth With A Mission). He is and working at the YWAM base in East Timor and the money raised will help cover the costs of his time there as a missionary.

The theme of this song is based on the words of Psalm 139. They talk of how God knows us because he made us. He understands us better than we do ourselves and this knowledge causes us to praise him for being 'fearfully and wonderfully made'. Asau said this was his favourite passage in the bible and so we are glad that it became the theme and focus of this song.

We hope that you enjoy this piece and, that through the selling of this song, Asau is blessed during his time serving God in the mission field.

Blessings - Mr Graieg (Head of Music, Strathalbyn Christian College)

lyrics

Oh lord, you searched me and know me
You perceive my thoughts from afar
You drew my paths
You showed me the way
Even there you hold me fast

God be praised!
We’re fearfully and wonderfully made
How precious are your thoughts my Lord
Outnumbering the stars

Where can I go,
To hide from your spirit?
Where can I flee,
From you presence?
If I take the wings of the morning
Still you’re there,
Calling me home

God be praised!
We’re fearfully and wonderfully made
How precious are your thoughts my Lord
Outnumbering the stars

Your mind my God is too wonderful
Too high above me

God be praised!
We’re fearfully and wonderfully made
How precious are your thoughts my Lord
Outnumbering the stars
