Rooted Deep is the culmination of the promise of God spoken over Jeff and Leah Rybak as they have been called to be ministers of music and the Word. Their musical stylings have evolved into an eclectic mix of rock, pop, and country with a flavor of urban gospel that bridges generations and cultures. Their vision is to sing of God's love to His people to bring them to a new level of worship and praise for their Creator.

Biography

Rooted Deep was established in 2011 by Jeff and Leah Rybak in response to Gods calling.

Jeffs hard rock roots began in upstate New York as a lead vocalist and guitarist in many local rock bands. At the age of 25, Jeff had an encounter with the Lord that moved him into the ministry of a praise & worship leader. His vocals and instrumentation have progressed to become a fusion of rock and pop that truly express his love for what God has done in his life.

Leah grew up in southeast Virginia in a Christian home and was heavily involved in her church from an early age. It was there she was filled with the Holy Spirit and began performing in church plays and musicals. In her early 20s, Leah became a praise & worship leader and began lending her musical talent to many church choirs and special groups. Her voice has evolved into an eclectic styling that crosses traditional, ethnic, and generational boundaries.

In 2000, Jeff and Leah met through the praise & worship team at church. As their love grew, they came together in marriage in 2005. Together, Jeff and Leah are praise & worship leaders at New Life Providence Church in Virginia Beach, VA. They know they have been called to lead every generation to Christ through music and give thanks to God for the opportunity to be a witness of His love.

Jeffs musical influences bring an edge to complement the sweet soulful quality of Leahs voice. Its that formula of music that has touched lives and encouraged people to turn to their true kingdom purpose.

Jeff and Leah began working with David Chance in July of 2011 on the production of Rooted Deep's debut album entitled "Give Him Praise" and signed with Chance Music Group, LLC in April of 2012.

Lyrics

Give Him Praise

Written By: Rooted Deep

The moon and stars exalt Your Name (oh Lord I see your face every time I look up in the sky)
Your breath gave life to our being (and every time I read Your Word it makes me come alive, yeah)
The stormy winds obey your Voice (everybody lets gather round so we can make a joyful noise)
And everything breathing it must rejoice (let everything that has breath praise the Lord)

No matter where you are, from near or very far
His majesty is around from the mountains down to the ground
And everywhere you go He makes His presence ever known
He is God and God all alone

Is there a worship in the house tonight? Is there a praise in the house tonight?
Give Him praise, give Him praise, shout His Name, Shout His Name
Because he’s worthy of the praise

You spoke Your Word and there was light (oh Lord You Word is light and the light opened up my eyes)
And that same Light must be our Guide (Your Light is leading me and I gotta let the light shine)
Our hearts they beat because of You, we give You our will, so do what you choose
And now receive our praise oh God

Lord of creation, Lion of Judah, Lord we bow down tonight – (Just Leah)
Father and Keeper, our only Refuge, Shelter and Place to hide, help me sing – (Just Jeff and Leah)
Lord of creation, Lion of Judah, Lord we bow down tonight
Father and Keeper, our only Refuge, Shelter and Place to hide

Is there a worship in the house tonight? Is there a praise in the house tonight?
Give Him praise, give Him praise, shout His Name, Shout His Name
It’s time to sing aloud in one accord, unleash a praise like never before
Clap your hands, clap your hands, do your dance, do your dance
Because he’s worthy of the praise
(He’s worthy, He’s worthy) – give Him praise, give Him praise – (You know He’s worthy yeah) – give Him praise, give Him praise

Power

Written By: Rooted Deep

Violence on the TV, the wife she wants to leave me
Fast food makes you sick, doesn’t matter what you pick
Can’t get a bank loan, they’re turnin’ off the telephone
Children growin’ up too fast, families don’t seem to last
Try with all my might, never seem to get it right
Make demands, take a stand, everybody wants to fight
but not You, it’s what You do, that makes me wanna follow You

Jesus is the Name that breaks through, the Power’s in Your Name
Power, to make, Power, to break
Power, to take, the power’s in Your Name
Power, to go, Power, to know
Power, to overthrow, the power’s in Your Name
Every knee must bow, every tongue confess
Every nation cries out, cries out Your Name
The Power’s in Your Name

Living on the welfare doesn’t really seem fair
Mom’s on her death bed making sure that mouth’s are fed
The car’s always breakin’ down, the dog is six feet underground
Lightning strike, voltage spike, sitting in the dark tonight
Can’t understand what, makes somebody wanna shut down and chase the shiny things
No matter what tomorrow brings
I’m on my face seeking grace, praying for this human race

Jesus is the Name that breaks through, the Power’s in Your Name
Power, to make, Power, to break
Power, to take, the power’s in Your Name
Power, to go, Power, to know
Power, to overthrow, the power’s in Your Name
Every knee must bow, every tongue confess
Every nation cries out, cries out Your Name
The Power’s in Your Name

Rescue Me

Written By: Rooted Deep

Through all the years of my life Never knew I could find perfect love
Until the day you came in my life All the wrong now became so right
You being here is proof that God Wrote this love down in the book of time
Now it’s all so clear to me That this is how it’s all supposed to be

When I look into your eyes, I see An angel staring back at me Oh I
When I look into your eyes, I see A reflection of myself to be Oh I
When I look into your eyes, I see God has sent you here to me Oh I
When I look into your eyes, I see Your love is here to rescue me (2nd time to bridge) To rescue me, to rescue me – (harmonies last time only!)

I felt like 69 chevy Broken down on the side of the road
The burden on my heart’s been heavy So confused where I should go
You rescued me when I was stranded Because of you my world’s expanded
Now I can see clearly, no longer in slavery My heart is now running free
This love is my destiny, when I

I was on a hospital bed before I met you
Fighting for every moment of my life before I met you
Caught up in the eye of a storm before I met you
Lost out at sea drowning before I met you
I was in a building burning down before I met you
Hoping and prayin every night before I met you
And then I met you
What an answer to prayer
Now I know that God is there

I see, I see, I see A reflection of you in me
I see, I see, I see That God has sent you to me
I see, I see, I see Someone who truly loves me
I see, I see, I see Your love is here to rescue me
I see, I see, I see

Far Enough

Written By: Rooted Deep

Feels like a ball and chain is binding me, if I could only get these shackles off my feet
Tried many times to break free, but now I realize there’s only, One that can deliver me
It’s like I’m in a hurricane in the dark, drowning in the rain with a broken heart,
tossed back and forth like a raging sea Though I’ve fallen,
I’m reaching out for You to save me

You Fell far enough to find, that His arms have been open, you’ve been broken
But leave it all behind, and let love just embrace and in case you
Fall far enough to find

So you live to fight another day, and struggle with the games that people play,
you used to think that all you needed was someone to hold onto throughout the night
you climbed that ladder like they told you to, now all your friends are far below you
you used to think that all you needed was that fancy car and your house in Malibu

You Fell far enough to find, that His arms have been open, you’ve been broken
But leave it all behind, and let love just embrace and in case you
Fall far enough to find
That your world has been shattered, it doesn’t matter
Cuz you’re what’s on His mind, yes it’s true, love surrounds you
oh His arm’s around you
Fell far enough to find that His arms have been open, you’ve been broken
But leave it all behind, and let love just embrace you and in case you
Fall far enough to find

Survive

Written By: Rooted Deep

Love it keeps eluding me
Seen my share of misery
I can honestly say I’ve seen better days than this
Lately there’s been so much pain
Got me down and feeling shame
But when I look up, see His smiling face, He reminds me I can say ….

I will not give in, I will not give up
When I get knocked down I will get back up
When I lose control I know where to turn
I can find myself in His loving arms
I will not lose hope, not admit defeat
I can find the strength, I will not be weak
I will stand, I will thrive, I’m a woman of God
With His word on my side
I will survive

Life it tries to bring me down
Turn my smile into a frown
I can honestly say I’ve seen better days than this
No one ever seems to care
My family’s scattered everywhere
But when I look up, see His smiling face, He reminds me I can say ….

I will not give in, I will not give up
When I get knocked down I will get back up
When I lose control I know where to turn
I can find myself in His loving arms
I will not lose hope, not admit defeat
I can find the strength, I will not be weak
I will stand, I will thrive, I’m a woman of God
With His word on my side
I will survive

Pain, Pain – I’m no longer feelin’ it
Shame, Shame – His love is always breakin’ it
Stain, Stain – no longer is it holding me
He’s broken off the chains of bondage now I’m walkin ‘ free
Jesus – He’s the One who took my pain
Precious – no longer will I be ashamed
Righteous – that is how He looks at me
He set me free, now I’m walkin’ tall in my victory

I will not give in, I will not give up
When I get knocked down I will get back up
When I lose control I know where to turn
I can find myself in His loving arms
I will not lose hope, not admit defeat
I can find the strength, I will not be weak
I will stand, I will thrive, I’m a woman of God
With His word on my side
I will survive

When Jesus Says Yes

Written By: Rooted Deep

Nobody Can Say No
Everything you are, every little scar, Echoes I’m not worthy of this
But when your Father’s King, death will have no sting
Thanks to a Son betrayed with a kiss
So you try to find what you left behind, what you need is lying here before you
It’s a perfect plan for a righteous man, My God won’t ignore you

They say it’s impossible, but He makes it possible
You may not feel beautiful, but He makes you beautiful
Though they rise against you, He’s always for you
Nothing can separate you from the love He has for you
They want to devour you, but He will empower you
Though they surround you, He’ll come to your rescue
You feel like you’re ruined, but He brings perfection
Inside you will see His perfect reflection

Nobody can say no, when Jesus says yes Nobody can say no, when Jesus says yes
Nobody can so no, when Jesus says yes Nobody can say no, when Jesus says yes
Nobody can say no

I know Who You are, You’ve loved me from afar
Creator of all we see and more
So take me as I am and glorify the Lamb, prepare my heart as an open door
There’s a raging sea that threatens you and me, my back’s against the wall
Nowhere to turn, It’s your commanding voice will never forsake me, yeah

Nobody can say no, when Jesus says yes Nobody can say no, when Jesus says yes
Nobody can say no, when Jesus says yes Nobody can say no, when Jesus says yes
Nobody can say no

Nobody can say no Nobody can say no
Nobody can say no Nobody can say no
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me
Nobody can say no
The gates of Hell will not prevail against me
Nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody

Just As In Love

Written By: Rooted Deep

You made the sun like a smile on a cloudy day
You make my gray skies blue
I listen to the whispering wind it tells me of your love so true
Beneath the stars I’ll never be lonely you’re always by my side
When I picture your face it’s shining bright, you’re what my heart’s made of
Just as in love with you, just as in love with you
Just as in love with you, just as in love
I remember feeling so trapped that I felt like screaming
It was you that pulled me through
Thought I would never get up thought I’d never lift my head up
You gave me second chance
When I think of your love and how I can never get enough
You’re the apple of my eye
When I look at all the ups and downs of my life
It was all your design
Just as in love with you, just as in love with you
Just as in love with you, just as in love
Like the rays of the sun that make the flowers bloom
Like the waves and the ocean pulled by the moon
Like trees of the forest that need the rain
Like the roaring fire that can’t be tamed …. Oh oh oh oh
Just as in love Oh oh oh oh
Just as in love Oh oh oh oh
Just as in love Oh oh oh oh
Just as in love with you, just as in love with you
Just as in love with you, just as in love

Jesus Loves You

Written By: Rooted Deep

This song goes out to the little girl. This song goes out to the little boy
Whose face has never seen a smile. Just to survive they walk a thousand miles
Sadness outweighs any happiness, abandonment and loneliness
Like a withering flower fighting for life
They just need some sunlight gonna let ‘em know

Yes, Jesus loves you Yes, Jesus loves you Yes, Jesus loves you
For the Bible tells you so
He loves you…

She watched as the buildings tumbled down on TV that day.
Her daddy was gone, she didn’t know why, nobody would say
So frightened she was, confused all at once, then time slipped away
Through all of her tears and all of your fears my God is near

Yes, Jesus loves you Yes, Jesus loves you Yes, Jesus loves you
For the Bible tells you so

Jesus loves the little children all the children of the world
Red, yellow, black and white, you are precious in his sight
You are why He gave His life
He loves you He loves you

Jesus loves you this I know for the Bible tells me so
Little ones to Him belong, when you’re weak, He makes you strong

Yes, Jesus loves you Yes, Jesus loves you Yes, Jesus loves you
For the Bible tells you so

I'll Follow You

Written By: Rooted Deep

I’ll Follow You – Rooted Deep
(Intro)
Ooooooo, yeah, yeah, yeah
Lord I will follow You, and wherever You send me, I’ll follow You

I was walking around like nobody cared, With every turn my life You had spared
Confusion and chaos I found on my own, With just a touch of Your love I know I belong
Each day that I live is brighter now, You took my life in Your hands and showed me how
There is no other love that’s greater than Yours, I need You more
(PreChorus)
Was lost and confused until You came, because of what You did, my life is changed
Gave up my search when I found You, to the ends of the earth I’ll follow You, I’ll follow You
(Chorus)
When you call my Name I’ll come runnin’, I will be ready for Your comin’
There’s no other one that came and died, became a living sacrifice
Opened up my eyes when I was blind, You gave me fruit from Your True Vine
Your love is my rescue, so I have decided, I’ll follow You
Lord You light up my life and help me to see,
I could never repay what You’ve done for me
When I couldn’t see past my hurt and mistakes,
like and eagle Your wings opened up now I’m safe
There is no greater gift than a new life with You, I’ve forever in debt to the Lover in You
Committed to stand on Your word as the truth, I’m holdin’ on to You
(PreChorus)
(Chorus)
(Vamp)
Lord I will Follow You, and wherever you send me, I’ll follow You
Lord I will Follow You, and wherever you send me, I’ll follow You (I’ll follow You) yeah, yeah
I’ll follow, I’ll follow, I’ll follow You
I’ll follow, I’ll follow, I’ll follow You (You gave me fruit from Your true vine)
I’ll follow, I’ll follow, I’ll follow You
I’ll follow, I’ll follow, I’ll follow You (You gave me fruit from Your true vine)
Lord I will Follow You, and wherever you send me, I’ll follow You
Lord I will Follow You, and wherever you send me, I’ll follow You

Because of You

Written By: Rooted Deep

Once I was lost and wandering in the dark
There was no hope for the loneliness inside of me
Then I heard about how You gave of Yourself so I could be set free
Now my life is changed
Because of You, I am no longer blind
Because of You, I leave all the past behind
My sins are no longer counted against me, I am purified
Because of You, My Lord and My King, because of You
Now I’m set apart and chosen by Your love
You’ve given me purpose and washed my clean in your blood
Now I will go and tell of Your love how You have set me free
And how my life is changed
(CHORUS) (Music break)
I was so lost without You, and now I’ll never doubt
Lord You are the reason I live
Because of You, I am no longer blind
Because of You, I leave all the past behind
My sins are no longer counted against me, I am purified
Because of You, My Lord and My King, because of You
