Biography

Solid Ground is a contemporary Christian Rock Band in South Carolina. Our intent (of course) is to spread God's word through our music with hopes that it will reach at least one person and change their life. Our music is a mixture of acoustic and hard rock styles with strong vocal harmony, along with excellent bass guitar riffs and driving percussion. Our lyrics either tell of a learned experience, or give a certain message pertaining to how we personally feel about our faith, and hopefully gives answers as to where to look if you are someone in need but not quite sure what you are looking for. Our main concern is to reach today's youth and offer guidance, friendship, and/or a shoulder to lean on, but our music is for anyone who will listen with an open mind. Our mission goes way beyond our music, as we are prepared to share whatever necessary to find a lost soul and provide hope. Solid Ground is more than just a band, it is a MINISTRY, beginning with a firm foundation, combined with the versatility to grow and change as our hearts strive to learn more about our Saving Grace.

Lyrics

Why He Gave His Life

Written By: Solid Ground

Have you heard the news today, they say He's coming back! He died on Calvary, that's a matter of fact. Why He gave His life, something I can't see. Why He gave His life, for a wicked wretch like me (repeat)
How can I turn my back, on a man who died for me? Scarred hands and a pierced side, holy blood for me.Why He gave His life, something I can't see. Why He gave His life, for a wicked wretch like me (repeat)
Now I think I understand, how He set us free. Led us to the promised land, for all eternity.
Why He gave His life, I think I finally see. Why He gave His life, for a wicked wretch like me (repeat)

Written By: Solid Ground

HERE I AM, I STEP INTO YOUR GRACE
LORD I ASK, FOR YOU TO SHOW YOUR FACE
SOMETIMES WHEN I’M DOWN ON BENDED KNEE
ALL I NEED IS FOR YOU TO SPEAK TO ME

HERE I AM, LORD TAKE ME TO SOLID GROUND (REPEAT)

LORD YOUR WORD, SUSTAINS ME,
LIFT ME UP LORD, SET ME FREE
HOLY SPIRIT, CONSUME ME WITH YOUR LOVE

LORD YOUR WORKS, ARE AMAZING,
THEY KEEP ME IN HEAVEN SENT MYSTERY
TELL ME WHY, YOU DIED FOR MAN,
TELL ME WHY, YOU KEEP US IN YOUR HAND

HERE I AM, LORD TAKE ME TO SOLID GROUND (REPEAT)
