Covered

A collaboration between Richard Schletty and Jack Miller. The lyrics are Jack's poem "Covered" (inspired by a terrible nightmare). The guitar track was recorded by Jack in a separate "moment" with his Zoom H2 digital recorder (with no intention of marrying his poem to his guitar track). I took it upon myself to crisp up Jack's guitar track and overlay my baritone register, singing his words in a free-form manner.

COVERED
[inspired by Romans 3:21-31]

The blood of Christ 
It covers me 

The blood of Christ 
He died for me 

My sin taken 
His life given 

No condemnation 
He has risen 

Declared now just 
No merit mine 

By grace now blessed 
Free gift I find 

A new heart given 
Faith to obey 

His yoke easy 
Christ led each day 

God of heaven 
Yet Savior He 

This soul, blood-sealed 
Eternally. 

- Jack Miller, March 4, 2010
