YOUR GRACE STILL AMAZES ME COVER Phillips Craig and Dean Sung by Elgin Bolling AKA El Prophet the Scribe

This is a practice run of Phillips Craig and Dean's Classic, YOUR GRACE STILL AMASES ME, that I am singing today in morning worship. I've since worked out the kinks in the song, especially on the "E" Vowels which sound very whiney and lack power. I am as prepared as I can be and must remember to focus on leading people to worship, and not so much a vocal performace, which is always a challenge. Perhaps in a later post i will have some musical backup .

When God Ran (worship video w/ lyrics)

Working on this song also... LOVE it... Imagine God Running...

"Your Grace Still Amazes Me" Phillips, Craig & Dean

Just learned this song after MANY MONTHS of consistent practice. I had so much difficulty singing it, and then one day I was led to discover that the song is NOT so much SUNG, as it is PRAYED. THAT'S when everything comes together. When Im in that place of worship that I call "the cocoon" where everything seems to drop away and it's just you and God, it's a transcendent place that is indescribable and where these lyrics take on a power that is incredible.

Amazed, by Phillips Craig and Dean, from the CD "Top Of My Lungs", 2006

I cannot wait to lead morning worship with this beautiful song of adoration. I'm currently practicing it with my pastor/vocal coach. I am so fortunate that my voice fits into the key of these gifted singers.
