Steven Curtis Chapman Sings With His Dad ‘I’d Rather Have Jesus’

Steven Curtis Chapman is one of the greatest Christian song writers we have in our generation.

While recording his Deeper Roots album at the studio along with his dad Herb Chapman Sr. and his brother, he had his dad sing lead vocal to “I’d Rather Have Jesus.”

The song has a special meaning and emotion for their family, especially for their dad, since recently they sang it together at the funeral of their Grandmother (dad’s mom).

They had to do 8 “takes” in the studio, because his dad was getting emotional and was crying.

But finally when they were able to record the song completely, it was unbelievable, listen to the song here.

Philippians 3:8 – “Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ.”

Verse of the Day

He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. — Isaiah 53:3-4 (NIV)
