Biography

We declare that You are a Lord who is love
And we’re secure for You are hope - we know that
we are loved…
Majestic in Darkness

Chosen Sound is a band of five members in their forties of different backgrounds and experiences who have one overwhelming thing in common-their lives were transformed by Jesus Christ. Their songs have been composed out of experiencing His living reality over the years. These years have not been without hardships, but even in the midst of these difficulties the Lord has proven that He is enough.

Even in the darkness I can follow by His light…
He’s still here, He never leaves, or goes away, He keeps you in His sight…
He’s Still Here

He has become to us hope and joy. He has proven again and again that He loves us with an unconditional and everlasting love. We have a passion to share this message of hope, joy and love with as many people as we can.

With one common goal we live together
To exalt our Father and his Son…
We Are One Body

The Intention

Written By: Eric Rapp

THE INTENTION

THE LIFE THAT WE’RE NOW LIVING
IS NOT OUR OWN THAT WOULD NOT DO
THE LIFE WE LIVE IS HIGHER, THAT LIFE IS YOU
WE LIVE HERE ON THIS PLANET
BUT THIS PLACE IS NOT OUR HOME
BY YOUR SPIRIT, IN THE HEAVENLIES WE ROAM

YOU GAVE US EYES TO SEE IN REALMS UNSEEN
AND FAITH TO BELIEVE YOUR STORY
THAT WE WOULD LIVE THE FELLOWSHIP WITH YOU
THAT’S THE WAY YOU MEANT IT TO BE
THAT’S THE WAY YOU INTENDED IT TO BE

NOW I SEE CLEARLY, CRUCIFIED WE WERE IN YOU
INSIDE YOU WE DIED, AND WERE RAISED TOO
IT’S GRACE, AMAZING GRACE, AND GRACE FULLFILLED THE LAW
I KNOW BEYOND KNOWLEDGE - YOU’VE DONE IT ALL

I’M LOOKING AT MY BROTHERS AND MY SISTERS GATHERED HERE
WE’RE WALKING IN THIS HOLY PLACE WITHOUT FEAR
WE SEE HOW MUCH YOU LOVE HER
SHE’S THE APPLE OF YOUR EYE
FOR HER YOU CAME TO EARTH AND THERE YOU DIED

No Matter

Written By: Eric Rapp

NO MATTER WHAT THE DAY MAY BRING,
BE IT GOOD OR BE BAD,
YOU CAN NOT BE MOVED AWAY FROM HIM.
NO MATTER WHAT YOUR LIFE HAS BEEN,
THE TRIALS AND THE WOES,
THERE'S AN ANSWER THAT ALONE
CAN MAKE YOU WHOLE.

IT TAKES NOTHING MORE AND NOTHING LESS
THAN TO KNOW THAT YOUR SAVIOR
THAN TO KNOW FOR SURE,
THAN TO KNOW THAT JESUS LOVES YOU.

YOU CAN LOOK INTO THE MIRROR
AND SEE HOW SHORT YOU FALL
FROM THE IMAGE THAT YOU IMAGINE
OF THOSE HE CALLS
BUT, GOD SEES YOUR TRUE REFLECTION
THE IMAGE OF HIS SON
BEFORE CREATION
HE CHOSE YOU IN CHRIST
A HOLY ONE

Majestic in Darkness

Written By: Eric Rapp

Don’t be surprised - by the darkness that you see
The darker the darkness is, - the brighter light will be
Stand and when you cannot stand, stand ever still
The purpose for the contrast is so glory is revealed
As the brightness of this world’s light is dimming ever still
God’s majesty is seen as our destiny’s fulfilled.

Our God has a master plan, and on earth declares His will
That this light will not be hidden, but set out on a hill
God is love and those he loves - are what He will expose
It is joy that will be witnessed and hope that will be shown
As the brightness of this world’s light is dimming ever still
God’s majesty is seen as our destiny’s fulfilled.

And what this world really needs - is to know joy and hope
And how will they know this is possible, how will they know it’s in scope
By seeing those who live in the One who Hope and Joy and more
This background we see as darkness grows darker
So this truth cannot be ignored.

We declare that you are our Lord - A Lord who is love
And we’re secure for you are Hope - we know we are loved
You are an anchor - that will never fail
The darkness, that’s all around - is a pawn that won’t prevail
As the brightness of this world’s light is dimming ever still
God’s majesty is seen as our destiny’s fulfilled.
