The Way I See It #267

A lot of the starbucks cups have been lame lately but when there is one that I like I feel compelled to share it.  Today i received one such cup

“Music can lift us out of depression or move us to tears – it is a remedy, a tonic, orange juice for the ear.  But for many of my neurological patients, music is even more – it can provide access, even when no medication can, to movement, to speech, to life.  For them, music is not a luxury, but a necessity.”

-Oliver Sacks, Neurologist, Author.

David Crowder Band – O For A Thousand Tongues to Sing

So I have been listening to DCB- Remedy a lot since I got it, and I am really diggin’ “O For A Thousand Tongues to Sing”. This is one of the hymns that I really love. But I love that the chorus that they added to the song.

I love hymns, and I love when groups like DCB cover hymns and make them more modern, and expand on them. I think it just really gives depth to the worship service. And I hope that worship bands continue to revitalize the hymns because they really are spectacular pieces of theology and worship.

The Almost – Dirty and Left Out.

I’m just chillin’ in the Lynnwood Library, working on this weeks Sermon and shufflin’ through my iTunes when I came across this Gem of a Song, and thought I would post the lyrics.  Maybe someone out there could use the encouragement.

The Almost – Dirty And Left Out
Hello, I swear I won’t be too long
Hello, I promise I’ll be real strong
Wait up, I just wanna tell you
Hold up, why are you still here?

I’ve been dirtier than you wanna know
I’ve left earlier than you’ll ever know

Why do, you wanna be all listenin’ to me
Why do, you spread your arms and tell me I’m free
Why do, you wanna be in my life
In my life

I’ve been dirtier than you wanna know
I’ve left earlier than you’ll ever know

Jesus, Jesus,
There’s something about your name
Master, saviour, Jesus

I’ve been dirtier than you wanna know
I’ve left earlier than you’ll ever know
Jesus
Jesus

What a great song, I love how Jesus uses my iTunes to remind me of his love for me and the world.  Pretty incredible.
