Something a Little More Edifying
That last post was quite a whine, eh? I thought I'd better counteract it with something a little more edifying. Again, sorry I can't post the tune. I do have some of this stuff on tape and keep meaning to look into how to transfer that to a computer-friendly format, but it hasn't happened yet.

His Unfailing Love (Psalm 107) -- June/July, 1997

Some of us wandered in deserts and wastelands,
Finding no way to a city of rest.
Our lives ebbed away as we hungered and thirsted,
Then we cried out to God in distress.

And from out of our troubles our God has delivered us.
By a straight way to a city Hes led us.
From deep, living springs He has quenched all our thirsting.
With the bread of His flesh He has fed us.

Chorus:
So let us give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing love,
We whom He has redeemed from the hand of the foe.
Let us sing songs of the wonderful deeds of our God.
Let us give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing love.

Some of us languished in chains of our forging,
In prisons that we ourselves had devised.
We sat in deep darkness, the blackest of midnights,
Til we prayed just to see the sun rise.

And from out of our troubles our God has delivered us.
And cut through the fetters of iron that bound us.
Hes broken the gates of our sin-sustained prisons.
Now the bright light of His grace surrounds us. (Repeat Chorus)

Some of us sailed out in pride on the ocean,
Thinking that in our own wisdom wed stand,
But the storm winds arose and the tempest blew round us,
And we prayed once again for dry land.

And from out of our troubles our God has delivered us.
Out on the sea of our self-will Hes sought us.
Hes hushed the wild waves and Hes made the winds whisper,
And to a safe haven Hes brought us. (Repeat chorus)
