  • New Song: Passover Me

    This has never happened. This song was written, recorded (demo version) and posted all within two hours. This morning I got up, watched a WWII documentary, went running (while rocking Kelly Clarkson), took a shower, sat down to read my Bible and out came this song while I was reading Psalm 5. It was one of those honest times of prayer with God. He convicted me of a specific sin in my life and I began to feel guilty. I prayed for forgiveness and the that the Holy Spirit would to continue to give the strength I need to repent. Then I realized that the guilt was not from God but the Devil. Then the phrases “passover me” and “you judge me by the blood” came into my head and heart and I felt at peace again. I grabbed my guitar and journal and starting writing stuff down and within 15 minutes the song was done.

    I do not know if it is done, but I felt led to share it with you guys. I know my experience was not a special occurrence. We all sin, God convicts us of that sin, and so often the Devil tries to make us feel guilt that is not righteous guilt from the LORD. I pray that if you are in that spot, trust that the LORD’s wrath and guilt has passed over you onto his son Jesu. You are now free, we are now free, I am now free from guilt because of the work and person of Jesus Christ. To God be the glory.

    Passover Me
    Words and music by Anthony Celia

    Your blood is on my doorpost
    And you know what’s inside
    But you judge me by the blood
    Yes, you judge me by the blood

    My sin is still before me
    I’m sinful from my birth
    But you judge me by the blood
    Yes, you judge me by the blood

    Passover me
    Yes, you passover me
    “Cause now you see
    The blood of my king
    Covering me 

    Your wrath is just and good
    For I have done you wrong
    But you judge me by the blood
    Yes, you judge me by the blood

    My debt requires payment
    But I’m poorer than the poor
    But you judge me by the blood
    Yes, you judge me by the blood 

    P.S. For those of you who care I recorded this song in in my home studio in one take with 2 mics and minimal EQ and compression. I used my "new” 1970 Alvarez.
