You, O Lord: A Song February 24, 2010Posted by Phil Groom in Songwriting.
A song that’s been going around in my head this morning, growing as it goes along. It doesn’t rhyme and probably doesn’t scan: I know nothing of such things; but for some reason or other, it won’t let me go. It’s also far too happy-clappy for my theology, but hey, what’s the point of theology if you can’t be flexible?
I have my own tune for it: I’ll let you make up yours.
You, O Lord, are the light of life that’s shining;
You, O Lord, are the everlasting way.
You, O Lord, bringing hope to those who seek you;
You, O Lord, bringing joy to those you find.
You, O Lord, bringing down the high and mighty;
You, O Lord, lifting up the poor and weak.
You, O Lord,
You, O Lord
(repeat to fade)
