We all have favorite songs that we tend to enjoy more than others. Sometimes, it makes sense based on the artist or style or lyrics or melody or whatever. I will ask my wife from time to time why a certain song by a certain artist tends to be so meaningful. I suppose it is actually a rhetorical question but since I respect her musical opinion, I continue to ask. Invariably, her answer is something like, there is no answer. Having wandered around that topic for a while, I will say that the song referenced in my title is one of those “magical” songs for me.
I was introduced to the song at a wonderful pentecostal church in Salisbury,NC, named Rowan Christian Assembly. Since that time some eight or nine years ago, it has been a song with few equals. I have rejoiced to hear it sung and to join in with others as they have sung it. During those times, I have laughed, I have cried, I have been so overcome with joy that I could hardly describe it.
It was composed by Australian singer, songwriter Darlene Zschech about 11 years ago. The song was birthed at a discouraging time her life and has since come to be a song sung by literally millions every week. All this is great although I doubt she wrote it with those results in mind.It is based largely on Psalm 92-96 which are worth a read in themselves.
But somehow, when I hear it it’s mine. I hope someday to be able to express my thanks to the artist for her inspired work. If you have never heard the song, visit ITunes or buy it. I trust it can become meaningful for you as well.
My Jesus,My Saviour
Lord, There is none like you
All of my days, I want to praise
The wonders of your mighty love
Just a sample of some wonderful praise lyrics.
Shalom and Amen
