Two songs that are very meaningful for me at the moment:
Oh Love That Will Not Let Me Go
O Love that will not let me go,
I rest my weary soul in thee;
I give thee back the life I owe,
That in thine ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller be.
O Joy that seekest me through pain,
I cannot close my heart to thee;
I trace the rainbow through the rain,
And feel the promise is not vain,
That morn shall tearless be.
O Cross that liftest up my head,
I dare not ask to fly from thee;
I lay in dust life’s glory dead,
And from the ground there blossoms red
Life that shall endless be.
Brilliant. I kind of think, why bother to write songs after that one has been written. It’s so perfect.
The other song is by a band called Bon Iver.
It’s a good song but the line that gets me is this:
Come on skinny love, just last the year.
I am so into that lyric. I completely feel like my love has been worn thin, my love for God, my love for life, my love for myself…and I find myself saying,
Come on skinny love! Just last the year!
That’s where I’m at.
