Today at the Maryville & Springbrook venues, we’re introducing a new song called “The Real Thing.” It’s another homegrown tune that Scott Flinchum brought to our songwriting retreat, and several folks collaborated to finish it with him.
We’ve been singing it at house worship and youth for a while now, and we’ve found that each section of the tune is simple, easy to learn & repeatable. You might find yourself singing along the first time through. And it’s perfectly suited for our desire to give a little space to our worship.
This desperate cry borrows themes from Ecclesiastes:
All my life is vapor. Your Word stands forever…
I’ve been chasing after wind. Your wind is chasing me.
And as the song progresses, we move from longing to declaring:
You are the real thing! The gospel breathing!
Men will lead this one in G or A, and women will be in D or E. Visit the song page on Planning Center for charts.
