We've had a few people contacting us saying they have inspiration for songs, but need some help.

If you find you can write some lyrics but struggle to come up with original music, or alternatively maybe you're good at writing music but not words, then drop a post in here and hopefully someone can help you out.

Get collaborating!

1: Start the bands, Shout out loud Proclaim it and be proud
Sing of love, life and faith, Christ calls us, come and join the crowd
Share His feast, break the bread, take the overflowing cup
Spread the Word, share the faith, turn it up

Chorus:
So turn it up, make it strong, and let our heartbeats spread the word
Come, sisters, join in the chorus, brothers let your voice be heard
All the nations will sing, and all the bells shall ring
Share the Word, spread the faith, turn it up

2: In the Shadows, in the Light, in the depths of blackest Night
God is there, still, beside us although hidden from our sight
Love conquers all, and hope lives on,
Share the Word, spread the faith, turn it up

Two points. Firstly, can someone give this a tune which ISN'T already owned by someone else.

Second, could someone help me finish the third line of verse two? Any more verses are welcome as well, if they pop up.

Thanks.

Olivia

Hey Olivia. I know that it is too late now but just knocked this up using your lyrics. Only changed a couple of lyrics and didn't really help you out with the third line of verse 2. Let me know what you think.

I Love it!

And congratulations, mate. I'[ve been struggling to get a new tune for it. That might be able to be submitted. Let's check.

Hi Olivia & Robert,

Nice to see some collaboration on the forum! Have you got any further ideas for the missing lyrics in the 2nd verse?

The NCYC music team would love you to submit this song so that we can display it along with all of the submitted songs. Olivia it is probably best if you do this. I have emailed you directly with details on how to do this.

Cam.
