During the fall of 2002 there were a lot of remembrance themed events for the first anniversary of 9/11. I wrote this for our praise band to play the weekend of that anniversary. A few years later a friend asked if I’d record it for him. So I went to the basement and played around with some different tracks.
Feel free to download a copy of the lead sheet and offer any feedback. I’m always open to suggestions! It’s a pretty simple tune and a fairly easy chord progression.
We Remember – Ray Martin ©2002
We remember how you lived
We remember how they pierced your side
We remember how you freed us
We remember how you died
And we remember all the love that you showed us on the cross
And all our sin that you did forgive
And we remember as the Shepherd, that without you we are lost
We remember how you died that we may live
