'He's My Guide' is the second of two new singles by contemporary Salvation Army worship group Meraki
"We wrote this song whilst grappling with what God's plan was for us and asking for understanding of the direction our music-making was heading. However, since playing the song out for the first time, it has taken on more and more meaning and God has used the song in ways we could never have imagined. I believe that God had a plan for this song from the beginning without us fully knowing what we had in front of us. The foundation of the song has a strong contemporary folk influence. The song has a lively and energetic feel to it and should be sang as a proclamation of faith. The line 'When I'm wandering in the darkness he's my guide' HAS to be sung as loudly as possible!"
Brothers Alvin and Karl Allison grew up in The Salvation Army and wrote their first song together 30 years ago. This album occupies a very broad musical landscape that features a great many Salvationist musicians.
