Song of the Week - Your Words Are Life

We live in a world where we are constantly bombarded with incredible amounts of information. Rolling news programmes are mainly filled with stories of disaster, death and catastrophe. Good news rarely sells! 

When this current pandemic began, it seemed to me that it was 'manna from heaven' for the news outlets. Brexit, famine, wars, climate change and everything else was pushed aside for this 'new kid on the block' that has caused global panic. 

As the year has progressed, I have grown tired of the news; fatigued by the daily round of depressing facts and figures, criticism of governments and politicians and the forecasts of doom and gloom. 

During 2007, I spent some time writing with Tim Sherrington, a songwriter based in Aldershot, UK. This particular song came about when we were writing in November of that year.  

I want to share this as my “Song of the Week” to remind myself and encourage others to continually focus on God's words and perspectives.  

In a world of fake news and misinformation, God's word can be trusted.

Psalm 119 v 105: Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. 

Matt 4 v 4: Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’ “ 

John 6 v 68: Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life.    

YOUR WORDS ARE LIFE   
FEEDING MY SOUL   
WORTH MORE TO ME   
THAN SILVER OR GOLD   
GUARDING ME     
FROM GOING ASTRAY   
GUIDING ME     
LIGHTING MY WAY   

LEAD ME ON   
IN THE PATH THAT'S EVERLASTING   
LEAD ME ON   
I WILL DO WHAT YOU ARE ASKING   
LEAD ME ON   
THROUGH THE JOYS AND THROUGH THE SORROWS   
LEAD ME ON   
IN YOUR FOOTSTEPS I WILL FOLLOW   

HELP ME HEAR THE WORDS THAT YOU SPEAK   
BE TO ME THE WISDOM I SEEK
