Line in the Sand is made up of 14 and 15 year old classmates who enjoy performing contemporary Christian music. Three of our band members sing and harmonize on a variety of songs. We have a number of original songs that excite and encourage our listeners.

Biography

In the spring of 2011, Bryce (guitar/vocals) and Alex (drums) performed an acoustic set at a local Indianapolis area talent show winning first place. During an after party at a local Starbucks, the two discussed a desire to pursue music with a purpose.

Their dream came a little closer when Alex's twin sister, Samantha (bass), agreed to groove on the bass. Before long, they were joined by two classmates. Courtney (guitar/vocals) added her skillful guitar playing and soulful sounds, while Madison (keyboard/vocals) proved to be heaven sent by adding a completely new dimension.
Now drawn together, these 8th and 9th graders are making their stand.

Line in the Sand performs Contemporary Christian Music, sure to touch your heart. At their age, you wouldn't expect to hear such beautiful harmonizing, especially since they have only been together for 1 year!

The past year has proven exciting. Besides playing multiple youth events, they have had an opportunity to open for Building 429, and they were one of seven bands selected out of 100 bands to play at Holiday World's Rock the World festival featuring Jeremy Camp, Barlow Girl, Hearts of Saints and Tenth Avenue North.

Their music is uplifting and pleasing to both young and old, male and female. Their mission is to bring God glory through their music.

Musical influences include: Barlow Girls, Skillet, Newsboys, Francesca Battistelli, Jeremy Camp, Anthem Lights, and others!

Lyrics

Shine

Written By: Line in the Sand

Verse 1
You’re feeling lost and confused
Your soul is battered and bruised
Somewhere your innocence got tangled up with fear and scars
Take a good look inside
You have no reason to hide
God doesn’t make mistakes
You’re perfect just the way that you are, just the way that you are

Chorus
He wants you to shine, so bright
That even the stars in the heavens have to close their eyes
He wants to let the whole world see you shine
He wants you to give your light
To people lost in the darkness, as they stumble through life
He wants to let the whole world see you shine.....shine away!

Verse 2
There’s another way out, if you release all the doubt
And put your faith in something other than the world that we know.
Prepare a place in your heart, never will you be apart
From a love that takes hold of you and never lets go...it never lets go

Chorus

Outro Chorus
Remember to shine, so bright
That even the stars in the heavens have to close their eyes
Go out and let the whole world see you shine
Remember to give your light
To people lost in the darkness, as they stumble through life
Go out and let the whole world see you shine....shine away!

Where I Stand

Written By: Line in the Sand

VERSE 1
I’m lost and I’m alone, all I can do is sit at home
And watch this world fly by
I lived my life for me, no one else to please
But it was never enough, never enough for me
Can someone set me free?

Chorus
Now I’m running, running, running to the cross
Where I find hope, where I find love
And I’m reaching, reaching, reaching for His hand
It’s reaching out to pull me up again
On His Word I stand. It’s where I stand.

Verse 2
In my desperation, I remember You are there
Calling out to me
Cutting through my storm, I think I heard your voice
Are you here for me? Just for me?

Chorus

Bridge
I’ll always press on, never to go back
The past is the past, but I can’t change that
Although the storm is overtaking and my path is so unclear
You are the One whispering “I am here, I am here”

Outro Chorus

Thank You Thank You

Written By: Line in the Sand

Verse 1
Another day slowly passes by
Another day I’ve taken for granted
Because I keep both hands locked on the wheel
You are my Rock, you are my Salvation
You are the reason for every creation
I hope You hear me when I say how I feel

Chorus
I want to thank You, thank You
For how much You love me, love me
And I want to give You, give You all that I am
Just to say thank You thank You
For how much You love me, love me
And I want to praise you the best that I can

Verse 2
I blindly walk, step by step
Through a world full of miracles
Dripping wet from the grace You rain from above
I should be happy every second of every day
Because Your sacrifice has clearly shown me the way
To a life of everlasting love

Chorus
