about

It has long been a dream of Christian singer/songwriter/worshipper Jeff Arrandale to record his original music in Nashville. He got that chance and his debut solo release titled Not Here for Me is the result.

“I couldn’t be happier with this project both spiritually and musically,” says Jeff. “Though I shouldn’t have been, I was surprised by the presence of God in the studio. The musicians and production team, which included Producer/Bassist Art Ward and Grammy Award winning engineer Tom Harding, for the session, were amazing – truly gifted in their talent.”

It is Jeff’s hope that you will be encouraged by this recording - that you will be lifted up and joyful in your worship of Him. And that you will be pointed to Christ in a deeper way.

Track Name: Certainty
CERTAINTY

VERSE
Invade my heart, invade my soul forever
All I know is I want to be in Your will
You are for me and no one is greater
Trial after trial You’re with me still


CHORUS
And I know I am justified
Because my Lord was crucified
My body will be be glorified
And it’ll be for eternity
It’s God’s great certainty


VERSE
You are my provider, my defender
Interceding for me that my faith won’t fail
For good You cause all things to work together
Mine is a hope resting in Your will

Track Name: Our Praise
OUR PRAISE

VERSE
Our praise, is not for us
Our praise, is only meant for You
Our days, are not for us
They are numbered to be used by You


CHORUS
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
As we gather in your name
Void of any shame to show our love
Hallelujah
We lift our voice in praise
We proclaim You are our God
You are the ancient of days


VERSE 2
Your ways, are not our ways
Your ways, are only known by You
All days, run only after You
We crave and hunger, thirst only after You

Track Name: Not Here For Me
NOT HERE FOR ME

VERSE
Today I’m not here for me
Even though I’m broken, hurting, and pained
It’s all about Your Kingdom come
It’s all about Your Holy Name


VERSE 2
Some people they think I’m strong
But I can only barely stand
I’m standing here, but not for long
And only by the strength of Your hand


CHORUS
With open arms, lifted hands, and down on bended knee
I don’t have much, but it’s all Yours, I’m not here for me
I am Yours
Not here for me


VERSE 3
I’m grateful that I know Your Son
I know that He died for me
Because of Him the war’s been won
And I have a Hope to be free


VERSE 4
Despite this awful state I’m in
I know there’s something I must do
I’m letting go of all that’s been
I give it up to worship You

CHORUS
With open arms, lifted hands, and down on bended knee
I sing for You, and lift You high, ‘cause I’m not here for me
I am Yours
Not here for me

Track Name: His Place
HIS PLACE

VERSE
He invited us here and we gather in His name
In unity under His banner of love
We are called to praise His name over and over again
Every tribe, every culture and generation


CHORUS
And we rejoice in His place
Because we are in the House of God


VERSE 2
Lord, You’ve been our dwelling place since the time of man’s birth
Before the mountains were born You brought forth the earth
Your hand created the world, the heavens, stars and the skies
From everlasting to everlasting You are God


BRIDGE
You are God
We’re in Your house
We sing of You
To glorify Your name


His Place

Track Name: Strange Place
STRANGE PLACE

VERSE
Strange place, don’t know who these people are
They have faces I don’t know
Strange ways, don’t understand all that they do
Still I come (in Your name) for You


PRE-CHORUS
You call me out for You, So without a doubt it’s what I do


CHORUS
So they know
So they know


VERSE 2
Strange road, don’t know where it leads
It’s a busy and dusty street
Strange bridge over an unnamed stream
Through the fields from the north it bleeds


VERSE 3
Your Grace, it’s all that is needed here
Open eyes, soften hearts, let ‘em hear
Just a trace of your Holy Presence here
It redeems, it heals, please come near


PRE-CHORUS
I will be the salt and light in this dance
As you shine in the dark so bright it has no chance


CHORUS
So I go
So I go

Track Name: Race
RACE

VERSE
Since we are surrounded, by great cloud of witnesses
We will throw off everything that hinders
Sin so easily entangles, let us run with perseverance
The race marked out we follow, with our eyes fixed on Him


PRE-CHORUS
And the cloud of witnesses watches and cheers us on
We will fight the good fight, we will be strong


CHORUS
We will run, with perseverance
We will run, the race laid out before us
We will run, with our eyes upon Jesus
Seeking Jesus’ face, we will finish the race


VERSE 2
We know that He suffered, despite the joy set before Him
He endured the cross for us, scorning all its shame
Then, we know, He sat down, at the right hand of the Father
Can we really fathom, that He took all of our blame?


PRE-CHORUS
And the cloud of witnesses watches and cheers us on
We will fight the good fight, we will be strong


CHORUS
We will run, with perseverance
We will run, the race laid out before us
We will run, with our eyes upon Jesus
Seeking Jesus’ face, we will finish the race
Running with our eyes upon Jesus

CHORUS
We will run, with perseverance
We will run, the race laid out before us
We will run, with our eyes upon Jesus
Seeking Jesus’ face, we will finish the race
Running with our eyes upon Jesus
