Christian music pioneer Dana Key passed away Sunday night June 6th. In the late 1970’s Key and childhood friend Eddie DeGarmo formed the band DeGarmo and Key. Together they recorded 17 albums. In the 1990’s he moved from preforming music to producing and mentoring young musicians. Currently, he was pastor of the The Love of Christ Church in Cordova, TN.
It’s more than a wish, more than a daydream
More than just a passing whim
Yes, I’ve said this all before
A thousand times or more
I don’t wanna waste my life in chains of sin
I don’t wanna be, I don’t wanna be a casual Christian
I don’t wanna live, I don’t wanna live a lukewarm life
But I wanna light up the night
With an everlasting light
I don’t wanna live the casual Christian life
This life is filled with strong distractions
With pulls from the left one from the right
I’ve already made up my mind
Gonna leave this world behind
Gonna live my life a living sacrifice.
