Brand New Content Songs From 'The Nashville Nine'

You've probably already fallen in love with these first six songs recorded for Young Life by the Nashville Nine. It's an anonymous group of Young Life musicians who are committed to writing and recording content songs for us to use in club. As a gift to the mission, here are two brand new ones!

Rescue

The first is called "Rescue." I love it! It can fit well in club all semester long. I think the best time to introduce it might be on the night of the need talk. When you first play the song, leave out the 'alternate chorus.' Just delete that section from the slides below and replace it with the original chorus. Later on in the semester, maybe after the cross talk is given, sing the song with the alternate chorus. "You are the rescue" instead of "I need a rescue." 

Look at all the broken
Pieces all around me
Pieces deep inside my soul
I don’t know what’s real can’t
Help the way I’m feeling
All I know is I’m alone
       
I need a rescue. I need a reckoning
From all the things I’ve done and have been done to me
I need revival. I need recovery
I need to know if you’re the answer for what’s missing
Cause something’s missing

Turn up all the music
Something to amuse me
Cause silence is a lonely friend
If you really knew me could you really love me
And save me from this loneliness

It’s like I fell into a hole too deep to climb out
Then I looked up to the light and saw you reaching down
Reaching Down

Alternate Chorus (for later in the semester)
You are the rescue. You are the reckoning
From all the things I’ve done and have been done to me
You are revival. You’re my recovery
I know that you’re the answer for what’s missing
Because you love me

Coming Home

This song works great with a response talk and could fit well later in the semester. It also would fit perfectly if the talk is on the Prodigal Son.

I look around and all I see
There is a desert under my feet
I ran so far, ran out of road
I’m tired of running I’m coming home

I’m coming home / I’m coming home
I’m coming back where I belong
I want to be where I’m not alone
I’m coming back I’m coming home
Coming Home….

I turn around and what I see
There’s so much beauty why did I leave
Where I am loved where I am known
I’m tired of running I’m coming home
