about

Kevin Ray Nichols' sophomore album is appropriately titled, “God Is My Song.” This album is full of songs Kevin's heart needed to hear right now. His heart poured out songs he didn’t think were there. The original title idea was going to be “A Joyful Noise,” but it came to pass that many of these songs are more worshipful in the Christian Contemporary vein and express some hurt, struggles, and imperfectness; which point to God who is the Healer, Comforter, and Perfect in all His ways. So the joyfulness comes in knowing God is holding Kevin Ray Nichols - AND YOU - close everyday in every time. That’s when Kevin Ray realized that “God is my strength and my song” (Psalm 118:14). Features 10 original songs including the piano-triumphant "Triumph & Tragedy" and also including a fresh, rugged acoustic cover of "Old Rugged Cross."

Track Name: Here I Am
VERSE 1
You’re Lying awake at night
Looking for answers, here in the dark
You’re angry and overrun
and tomorrow’s problems bring you to your knees
and you’re struggling to find peace

CHORUS
Here I Am
Come to me
all who are weary
And I will give you rest
Here I Am
seek and find
The door will open
to the Lion and the Lamb
Here I Am

VERSE 2
You’ve got no place to go
Where hope and happiness come to meet
You’re living on borrowed time
with fear and bitterness, but you're all alone
And you’re struggling to find a home

CHORUS
Here I Am
Come to me
all who are weary
And I will give you rest
Here I Am
seek and find
The door will open
Hold out your hand
Here I Am

BRIDGE
Trust in the Lord, turn around, and run toward the light
If you believe, you'll receive Eternal Life

CHORUS 2
Here I Am
welcome home
all who are weary
now you can rest
Here I Am
You are free
you sought and found me
Here I’ll always be
Track Name: 6 Strings in Heaven
What will I play in Heaven Lord?
If I can't take my 6-strings with me?
What will I strum in Heaven Lord?
If I can't take my 6-strings with me?

I want to play a song for my Jesus
Standing at the gates of glory
What will I play in Heaven Lord?
If I can't take my 6-strings with me?

What will I play in Heaven Lord?
Will it sound like a harp or lyre?
What will I strum in Heaven Lord?
If I must keep my 6-strings here?

I want to play a song for my Jesus
Standing at the gates of glory
What will I play in Heaven Lord?
If I can't take my 6-strings with me?

What will I play in Heaven Lord?
If I can't take my 6-strings with me?
What will I strum in Heaven Lord?
If I can't take my 6-strings with me?
Track Name: All Came Clear
I once was dizzy with sin
I don’t know where to begin
My mind was like a blackout
Dusty and dark and facedown

My destiny was due south
Into the devil’s mouth
You found me shackled in chains
My life was nothin’ but pain

PC:
I begged for things to change
So tired of livin’ this way

Chorus:
Then it all came clear
Suddenly I hear
Your voice sang in my ear
I feel you—I’ve come to

Like a violin
You sing to me again
So sweet as You begin
Then it all came clear

V2:
I looked up in the starlight
I looked for some kind of sign
If You were really there
Come down and calm my fear

CHORUS

Bridge:
One step at a time,
By faith and not sight
With God on my side,
I know I’ll be fine…

It all came clear
Suddenly I hear

Lyrics:
V1:
I got that feelin’
Like it’s been there all along
It’s the Truth
So I know it can’t be wrong
Life’s got problems (pshuh)
but I don’t really care
just inhale that good clean air
‘Cause I can see my way
through the forest of the day
no fences in my way
I’m not goin’ backward
Always movin’ forward
An’ all I got to say is

Chorus:
OOOhhhh OOhhhhh
I got that feelin’

OOOhhhh OOhhhhh
Like I was dreaming…(

OOOhhhh OOhhhhh
You take me by Your side
and the feelin’ comes alive

V2:
I can feel Him
like a perfect summer breeze
God’s never changin’
like the opposite of me
Write it down
Take a selfie if you need
To see who lives in me
‘Cause He gave His life so we can be free
Anytime I need Him I drop down on my knees
Heaven and Earth will all pass away
But God’s Love is here to stay
I’m singing…

Chorus

Bridge:
I’m singing a joyful noise
‘cause You gave me life!
You’re the Only One
whose Name I lift on high
and I’m singing -

Track Name: Baptize Me (Acoustic)
Let me be washed, in eternal life
Let me be cleansed from the inside out
You showed the Way to eternal life
Your Spirit flows from the inside out

Fulfill Your righteousness in me
The blood of Christ has set me free

Baptize me
Your Spirit washes over me
Was blind in sin but now I see
Baptize me
A sinner in the need of rescue
I rise again alive in You

Let me be washed, in eternal life
Let me be Yours from the inside out
You are the Way to eternal life
My sins are cleansed from the inside out

Baptize me
Your Spirit washes over me
Was blind in sin but now I see
Baptize me
A sinner in the need of rescue
I rise again alive in You

United in Your death
United in Your resurrection
We come alive, walking in the newness of life
United in Your resurrection
We come alive, walking in the newness of life

Baptize me
Your Spirit washes over me
Was blind in sin but now I see
Baptize me
A sinner in the need of rescue
I rise again alive in You

Rise again alive in You
United we’re alive in You
Track Name: Old Rugged Cross
On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross
The emblem of suffering and shame
And I love that old cross where the dearest and best
For a world of lost sinners was slain

So I'll cherish the old rugged cross
'Till my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged cross
And exchange it some day for a crown

In that old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine,
A wondrous beauty I see,
For it was on that old cross Jesus suffered and died,
To pardon and sanctify me.

So I'll cherish the old rugged cross
'Till my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged cross
And exchange it some day for a crown

To the old rugged cross I will ever be true;
Its shame and reproach gladly bear;
Then He’ll call me someday to my home far away,
Where His glory forever I’ll share.

So I'll cherish the old rugged cross
'Till my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged cross
And exchange it some day for a crown

I will cling to the old rugged cross
And exchange it some day for a crown

for a crown
for a crown
Track Name: This Is My Song (He Makes Me Strong)
Lyrics:
V1:
I don't stand too good anymore
My throwing arm's hurt since '04
The pain in my back won't simply relax
I feel broken most of my days

Chorus:
But this is my song
The weak are made strong
I can stand with Him all day long
The Lord intercedes
when I'm facing defeat
When I'm broken, I sing this song
He makes me strong

V2:
I don't see too good anymore
My hearing has gone out the door
The pain in my joints,
what’s even the point?
I feel broken most of my days

Chorus:
But this is my song
The weak are made strong
I see the Unseen all day long
My Lord intercedes
when I'm facing defeat
When I’m broken, this is my song
He makes me strong

Bridge: (child reads Bible verses throughout)
Are you broken?
(He is strong)
Are you hurting?
(He is strong)
Are you defeated?
(He is strong)
Are you in need of Him?
(He is Strong!)

Chorus 2:
This is my song
The weak are made strong
I can stand with Him all day long
The Lord intercedes
when you're facing defeat
When you're broken, this is His song

Chorus3:
This is our song
The weak are made strong
We see the Unseen all day long
The Lord Intercedes
when we're facing defeat
When we're broken, He makes us strong

Ending:
This is my song
Sing out His song
He makes us strong
All day long
(hmmmmmmmm)
Track Name: Bring Me Back
Bring Me Back”
V1:
Once again, I’ve looked away
My hands are rising above the waves
I’m underwater...in this overwhelming flood
My feet are anchored in the moss & mud
‘Cause the things of this world have pulled me away
and I’m begging you to reach out and save me today

CH:
So bring me back; this I️ sing
Turn my eyes from useless things
Help me see; the King of Kings
Turn my thoughts from Satan’s schemes
Bring me back, (oh) bring me back,
bring me back, (bring me back)

V2:
Disoriented I fall to my knees
The silence is deafening
My heart lies open, and Life trickles in
It's time to let the healing begin
'Cause things of this world have pulled me down
But I’ve decided to lay down my crown

CHORUS

BRIDGE
You're my every breath
You're life and death
Preserve my life; by your Word
You're my every breath
You're life and death
Preserve my life; by your Word
Bring me back, bring me back,
oh bring me back, bring me back

Ending: (hymn form):
Turn Your eyes upon Jesus
Look full in His wonderful face
and the things of Earth will grow strangely dim
in the light of His glory and grace
