the father’s song.

I’m going to start a new discussion each week based on a song that speaks to the heart of one broken by the world.  I believe that music is an agent that can heal the heart and soul of a person – especially Christian music (worship music to be exact).

The first song is by Matt Redman, entitled: The Father’s Song.  This song can be traced to Zephaniah 3:17, where the prophet writes to encourage the Israelites about their future.  He reminds them that not only will GOD take away their punishment, but that GOD is with them daily.  Even more so, the ever-present, victorious GOD, is a Father who passionately sings over HIS children – a different song for each person.  And each song is sung eternally, meaning that each day, as GOD is pouring out new mercies upon you for the day, HE is also singing over you a victorious song – a melody of truth and grace.

No wonder Zephaniah challenges us to not fear and to not let our hands hang limp.  HIS song is part of our identity; it’s part of our journey is attaining true wholeness within HIM.  Let us not forget that O children of the Most High GOD.  Lift up your hands and hearts, and receive what’s coming down from the Father.

The Father’s Song

I have heard so many songs
Listened to a thousand tongues
But there is one that sounds above them all
The Father’s song, the Father’s love
You sung it over me and for eternity it’s written on my heart

Heaven’s perfect melody
The Creator’s symphony
You are singing over me
The Father’s song

Heaven’s perfect mystery
The king of Love has sent for me
And now you’re singing over me
The Father’s son.
