Missing Piece

Missing Piece

BandChristianRock

Missing Piece shares the Gospel message ( and MORE) through music. It is an exclamation. Their sound is a blend of old & new; the message itself is unchanging. The stage is transformed into an altar where the band leaves a sacrifice of praise, and draws in the listener to worship the Lord with them.

Biography

The members of Missing Piece have many years, virtually their entire lives invested in what they do. Each member has at least 20 years of experience as a professional musician; & roughly the same amt of time as praise & worship musicians & other areas of ministry. The musical influences are many and varied; but their passion is just in being a vehicle, a collection of vessels that would be used to point people to Christ Jesus. They believe that it's up to the worshipers/listeners to determine just what 'sets them apart' from other bands. They're just busy being themselves- and pursuing the call of God on their lives.

From 1993-1997, three of the 4 members were in the Contemporary Christan group 'Ralph Graham & Day III'- after that, they took a 10 year hiatus. Following the break: Ralph, Keith and (newcomer) Andy Cooper got the ball rolling again, with fellow Day III alumnus Randy Benson re-joining soon thereafter.

Currently, Missing Piece ministers monthly at Living Grace Fellowship in Fairfield, Ca; and SonRise Community Church in Vacaville, CA ... as well as walking through other doors & ministry opportunities when God opens/presents them.

Lyrics

Our Father

Written By: Ralph Graham III

Our Father, in Heaven
Hallowed be thy name
Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done
On earth as it is in heaven

Father, lead us not into temptation
Father, lead us to the Revelation
We serve such a Holy God

Give us this day our daily bread,
Forgive us our debts for we are debtors
Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done
On earth, as it is in heaven

Father, lead us not into temptation,
Father, lead us to the Revelation
We serve such a Holy God
(x2)

You are the Rock of my Salvation
You are the shelter from the storm.
You are the reason for existing
You are my Father, and I am your Son

My Father in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name
The Kingdom come, Thy will be done On earth as it is in heaven

Forgive us, and deliver us
so we can forgive...

Father lead us not into temptation,
Father, lead us to the Revelation
We serve such a Holy God

You are my Father, I am your Son
You are the Lord of Earth and Sky
You really love me, you really care
You put your Son upon the tree...

Father...

The Rain

Written By: Ralph Graham III

It's over but why are
the clouds still lingering?
Doctor's orders- have to learn that in
the rain

It's falling. Suddenly the streams
are rage
I'm drowning, tears are falling on the page

And the Rain is falling
somehow I hear You calling out my name
To this place of Higher Ground
(x2)
It's over, it's over
something I have never seen
Now You call me
To a place I've never been
It's so crazy-
I saw you standing in the rain
I noticed you were smiling back at me...

and The Rain is falling
somehow I hear you calling out my name
to a place of Higher Ground
And The Rain, keeps falling
somehow I hear you calling out my name
To this place of Higher Ground

Dancing in the darkness,
laughing at my fears
From the eyes of angels
a rainbow full of tears

And the rain is falling
Somehow, I hear You calling out my name
To a place of Higher Ground....
