Last Friday I saw the David Crowder band for the last time. DCB after 12 years have decided to stop making music. I can not tell you how sad this makes me. DCB has changed my life through their music and lyrics. They are one of my all time favorite bands. Our 6 year boy feels the same way. You have no idea how much he loves DCB too.
I accidentally ran into DCB while at a local Christian bookstore. If my memory serves me correctly, I don’t think they actually went by the name The David Crowder Band, because the CD I bought said “University Baptist Church”. I bought it popped it into the CD player in my truck and I was floored by the first track “All I can say”
At the time I wasn’t in the greatest place in my Christian walk and there was something about the song that hit me to the core. From then on that song became my life’s anthem. It was the very first taste of DCB that I ever had and as a proper way to see the band for the last time on Friday, they played “All I can say” as the very last song. As tears streamed down my eyes while listening to the song played live, I thought back to what the chorus meant to be back then and what they mean to me now…and nothing has changed on how I feel.
“And this is all that I can say right now
I know it’s not much
And this is all that I can give
yeah that’s my everything”
I’m in a way different place in my life now, but these words have stayed true. All I have to give God is me…not my stuff, not my family, not my money. It’s me, and at times I feel that I am worth nothing, that I have failed my family and my God, I know I have nothing else but to give but myself…so with that…I will give my everything.
Here is the video with the song and lyircs…
