New Waiting For Daybreak Single, “God of Heaven”

It’s time to share the lyrics to “God of Heaven!” Writing the song was special, as I had almost the whole song down, but I struggled with the second verse. During a week in Palm Springs on family vacation, my wife Karo helped me with some awesome lines, and it turned out to be the first song we wrote together. I will be bugging her for more, she is really talented and awesome!

Give the song a spin on the web site at while you have the lyrics up, worship along and see what God does. If you’d like, you can go to iTunes to rate, review and download it for your collection, just click here:

God of Heaven

God of heaven, God above, God of mercy, God of love
God of everything we see, God of all that is unseen
God of all the Universe, God of every living thing
God in all our suffering, God of all the joy You bring

We bow down, we lift up Your glorious name
May our hearts go along as we sing Your praise
There is no-one like You in the whole universe
God of heaven, reign, God of heaven, reign

God of all that’s beautiful, God of everything that’s true
God of all eternity, God behind the mystery
God of future, God of past, You are the first, You are the last
God of justice, God of truth, God of grace, we welcome you


Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, Jesus, reign (repeat)

More coming soon, blessings!


Beautiful background vocals to “You’re My Everything” by the beautiful wife! It’s exciting to hear the new songs coming along incredibly well. The first single by Waiting For Daybreak, “God of Heaven”, is being mixed by Brian Scheuble right now, and more tracks are on their way there. We will start releasing songs on iTunes and other digital outlets soon!

Riffing it up

It’s just an absolute joy to keep working on a new worship CD. The awesome thing is that God is pouring more and more songs each day, there are now about a dozen songs in different stages of writing and arranging for the next CD! I can’t wait to share these songs, many of them are being used at our church and have brought people closer to Jesus, I’m so pumped!

We are moving forward in batches of three songs, the first batch has the songs “Let Freedom Reign”, “God of Heaven” and “You’re My Everything.” They each have a very distinct and different personality, which makes it a lot of fun to record them. I wanted to share my excitement through some photos, so here goes. After getting awesome live drum tracks from Kirke tracked at his studio and tracking bass at home, I brought the gear to church to record electric guitars. The two first songs were tracked there, thanks for the support, guys!

Electric setup at CVCC

After doing this a few times on my own – carrying gear, engineering, playing and recording, I was ready to pray for some HELP! Two days after praying, I met Mike & Linda Claxton at the local St. Arbucks, and lo and behold, they opened the doors of their studio 3 minutes from my door! God is true, my friends!

With Mike Claxton at the studio

Aside of being so kind and a blessing, Mike and Linda are two hilarious Brits with an incredible and quirky sense of humor. Mike has already hooked me up watching Fawlty Towers (with John Cleese) and eating a British dessert, whose name shall be left on a need to know basis. Ask me for it if you dare! Here’s something sad but true from the studio:

Sign of the Times

It has been fun to play rhythm parts, leads, eBow (Thanks, Kevin!) and slide on these songs, they are musically really cool with lots of detail and finesse…

Tracking Electrics at Mike's Studio

Up next, preparing all the guitar recordings, then jumping to Kirke’s studio to track acoustic guitars, vocals and background vocals. Then it’s time for mixing and preparing a release! We will put out the first three songs, then keep recording and releasing more until a whole CD’s worth is done. Stay tuned!
