The Above YouTube Music Video Expresses the Blog Post Message Below
My friend paraphrased Josh Groban’s song: “You Raise Me Up” into “A Love Song To God”.
My friend had a variety of people read the lyrics of “A Love Song to God” to serve a “Focus Group” to determine their reactions. Their responses were universally “Transformative”, sometimes, tearfully so. They found my friend’s paraphrasing of a popular love song an equivalent modern day Psalm’s expression of a person’s love of God.
(Consider “God” as the “Antecedent” to the word “You” in the following Lyrics.)
“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, to all hat I can be –
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 God’s Love.
Perhaps, we can transform the “Love Song to God” into a Daily Occurrence of “Loving one another as Christ loves us.” Then, we can sing a version of Josh Groban’s song “What I Did For Love”. in the YouTube Music Video Below:
