Growing in frustration with the lack of success pursuing his musical dreams, he got on his knees, before God, and asked "What do You want me to do?". God, speaking to his soul, told him," you need to sing for My glory, not for yours. In 1993 Richard FINALLY listened. He began singing in churches, starting in San Diego, California, making his way up the West coast, arriving in Seattle, Wa. in 1996.

Lyrics

The Lord's Prayer

Written By: Richard Allen McGee

Our Father/ who art in heaven/ hallowed be thy name/ thy name/ Thy kingdom come Thy will be done on earth/ as it is in heaven/ Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes/ Give us this day our daily bread/ and forgive us our tresspasses/ As we forgive those who tresspass/ who tresspass/ who tresspass against us/ And lead us not into temptation/ but deliever us from evil/ from the evil/ For thine is the kingdon/ and thine is the power/ and thine is the glory forever/ and forever amen.

(Background Harmony)
On earth as it is heaven/
On earth as it is heaven/
On earth as it is heaven/
On earth as it is heaven/

Yes/yes/Amen/yes/amen

Longs to See Your Face

Written By: Richard Allen McGee

(Chours)
Oh Lord this is the people that longs to see Your face/
Oh Lord this is the people that longs to see Your face/

(Verse 1)
The Lord are the earth and His people/ The world and all who dwell in it/ For He founded it upon the seas/ and established it upon the rivers

(Chours)

(Verse 2)
Who can assend the mountains of the Lord/ and who may stand in His holy place/ One whos hands are sinless, whos heart is clean/ who desires not what is vain/

(Chours)

(Verse 3)
He shall recieve a blessing from the Lord/ a reward from God his saviour/ such is the race that seeks Him/ that seeks face of the God of Jacob/

(Chours)
