I love the simple pop song as much as I love dissonance and quirkiness; I don't think I should have to choose between them. So the music turns out to be a mixture of both, at times more of one than the other but always both. I am sure there are some out there who appreciate that strange mixture too.

Biography

Besides being complicated, reality, in my experience, is usually odd. It is not neat, not obvious, not what you expect....The problem is not simple and the answer is not going to be simple either. ~C.S. Lewis "Mere Christianity"

Influences:
Matt Redman, Delirious, David Crowder Band, The Beatles, minor chords and crazy people

Lyrics

You Never Change

Written By: Jordache Jaricha

King of kings; the Great I AM
This God we call our own
Majestic wonder; the awesome glory
No words can fully express

How great You are
How great You are

Your faithfulness is what we hold on to
Knowing that You never change
You never change

You’ve done so much; You gave it all
That You may call us Your own
We were lost, without hope in this world
Then You came down; You came down

Merry Christmas

Written By: Jordache Jaricha

It’s dark but still we can see
That our world is falling to pieces
We long to soar to heaven
But our feet are stuck in the clay
The star shines so bright
And the wise follow its light
While shepherds listen
As angels introduce the King

This is Jesus
Come to save the world
Come to save the world

Sing out the good news
Salvation is in a manger
The dawn is breaking
Creation starts to see
Before the world began
You were prepared
Immanuel
God with us

Glory to God in the highest
And peace to all, peace to all
Glory to God in the highest
And peace to all, peace for

Pilgrim's Progress

Written By: Jordache Jaricha

Seemed such an easy thing to do
Give our lives away
Learned all the right words to sing
If we wanted to play
Growing in knowing, living and loving
Once a week, if you please

We know the Son will rise
At the parting of the sky
Grace says there’s more than us

Not yet what we’re ought to be
Hallelujah we’re not what we were
This Way we’re on seems much too long
Lord, we know hope won’t go wrong

Stumbled over ourselves, lost our place
Plenty of feet in our mouths
Built our house on quicksand
More than once in fact
Vain, vain to think we know what we’re doing
We’ve been chasing the wind

Keep on walking

All This Is You

Written By: Jordache Jaricha

Who are these here, claiming Your name
Singing out strong the song of Your praise?
Who are these here, claiming Your name
Singing out strong the song of all songs?

Here we are saved
Here we are loved
Here we are new
All this is You

Who are these here, loving Your name
Singing out strong the song of Your praise?
Who are these here, loving Your name
Singing out strong the song of all songs?

Here we are saved
Here we are loved
Here we are new
Jesus, this is You

In Your Grace

Written By: Jordache Jaricha

And mercy brings hope to us here
Where grace meets surrender

Let us be found in Your grace
For in Your grace we are safe
Now to stand in Your grace
For in Your grace we are safe

'Twas grace that taught our hearts to fear
And grace our fears relieves

...on solid ground
