My friend sent me “A Love Song to God”. He paraphrased and modified Josh Groban’s song: “You Raise Me Up”. My friend had a variety of different people read the lyrics of “A Love Song to God” to serve as an unscientific “focus group” before I would publish it in my February website, as a blog post. Their responses were universally appreciative, sometimes, tearfully so.
I found my friend’s paraphrasing of a popular love song an appropriate expression of a person’s love of God, during the month of Valentine’s Day:
A Love Song to God
“When I am down, and my soul is so weary,
When troubles come, and my heart burdens me,
I am still, and wait here in the silence.
Until you come, and spend a while with me.
You’re the Majestic Creator, of power & wisdom
You’re the Loving Redeemer, of mercy & forgiveness,
You’re the Holy Spirit, of peace & comfort.
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains.
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas.
I am strong, when I am on Your shoulders.
You raise me up, to all that I can be –
Made in Your image & likeness,
To love You, and others, as You love me,
now and forever. Amen.
“A Love Song to God” captures the rich, fullness of the beautiful & true essence of love. It’s a refreshing, sweet way to wish God…
Happy Valentine’s Day.”
