Messianic Jewish Music - Lamb - Psalm 23

Music Only Video Embedded Below

-------------------------------------------------------------


Hi!

During the 1970's, when Christian Rock was in it's early stages, a band called Lamb emerged onto the scene.

According to their website:

"Joel Chernoff (lead singer/songwriter) and Rick “Levi” Coghill (producer/guitarist) formed Lamb in 1972, and is considered by many to be the music group responsible for pioneering and popularizing Messianic Jewish music."

Messianic music is created by Christian Jews who have come to believe that Jesus is the Messiah.

------------------

In the past this blog featured a wonderful song of theirs called The Sacrifice Lamb (7-28-12).

------------------ 

In 2014, Lamb release an album called "The Sacrifice"—that included their modern Hymn — Psalm 23—which is embedded below.

Using the words from the Psalm found in the Bible (posted under the video)—this song is gentle and worshipful and speaks of our Father's great love for us—His protection and guidance—and our Eternal Home with Him!

May God Bless you—comfort you—and speak to your heart as you listen! 
   





Psalm 23 - Lyrics

The Lord is my Shepherd I shall not want
He makes me lie down in green pastures
He leads me beside still waters
He restoreth my soul

And yeah, though I walk through
The valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil
For Thou art with me, Thy rod and Thy staff
They comfort me

Thou preparest a table before me
In the presence of mine enemies
Thou anointest my head with oil
My cup runneth over

And surely goodness and mercy will follow me
All of the days of my life
And I will dwell in the house
Of the Lord forever
Forever!

And yeah, though I walk through
The valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil
For Thou art with me, Thy rod and Thy staff
They comfort me

And surely goodness and mercy will follow me
All the days of my life
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever
Forever!

I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever
Forever and ever and ever! 

For the Lord is my Shepherd
The Lord is my Shepherd
I shall not want, no more

Forever!
Forever!

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want
Only He restoreth my soul

Bethel Music - Come To Me



Matthew 11:28-29Ilya Repin - Volga Barge Haulers - 1870-1873
 ------------------------------------

Hello!

Below you'll find a music-only video from Bethel Music.

"Come To Me" is a worshipful track and vocals would sit nicely next to anything you might hear in popular music today—but its message—truly sets it apart.

The first verses of the song represents God speaking to us—about His Love and Protection for those who love Him—and that He is all sufficient to meet our needs.

The second part of the song switches to a personal recognition and acceptance of all the Blessing that God bestows upon us—and our need of His Love, Protection and Grace.

Let this song speak to your heart about our amazing Father in Heaven—who loves you!

Lyrics are found under the video—





Come To Me - Lyrics

I am the Lord your God, I go before you now,
I stand beside you, I'm all around you,
Though you feel I'm far away, I'm closer than your breath,
I am with you, wherever you go,

I am the Lord your peace, no evil will conquer you,
Steady now your heart and mind, come into My rest,
Oh, let your faith arise, lift up your weary head,
I am with you, wherever you go,

So—Come to Me, "Cause I'm all you need—
Can you hear Him saying?
Come to Me, I'm everything,
Shepherd of my soul says—
Come to Me, I'm all you need,
Her Him saying—
Come to Me, I'm your everything,

I am your anchor, in the wind and the waves,
And I am your steadfast, so don't be afraid!
If your heart and flesh may fail you, I'm your faithful strength!
I am with you—wherever you go!

Oh! So come to Me, 'Cause I'm all you need,
He says—Come to Me, I'm everything,
Come to Me, "Cause I'm all you need,
Come to Me, I'm everything—

When the storm rages—I won't be afraid!
'Cause I've locked eyes—on You face to face,
Your Voice I will follow, Your Eyes I will see,
I'll come a little closer, Come close to me,

Oh! 'Cause you are my anchor, in the wind and the waves,
I will stand steadfast, Oh!—and you are my-Whew!
And I won't be afraid,
'Cause even in the darkest night, Oh! I know you are there,
So I press into you Jesus,
Oh! Release all my care! 
  
'Cause you are my anchor, in the wind and the waves, Oh! And You are my steadfast, and I won't be afraid!
If my heart and flesh may fail me, You're my faithful strength!
Oh! You are with us—wherever we go,

Jesus we come to You—'Cause You're all we need,
Oh! We come to You,
You're everything!
Oh! We come to You,
'Cause You're all we need!

Oh! We come to You,
You're everything!

Hello!~

I keep checking in on Leander Williams' "Gospel Quartet Paradise Show" uploads to his YouTube Channel—and love his program and the music he plays.

Today's post features a song that was just the second one he played on the show he uploaded on June 6, 2018.

The band and backing vocals on this track are stellar—and lead vocals are provided by Sam Butler and the late Clarence Fountain, both of The Blind Boys of Alabama fame.

The song is called Do What The Lord Say Do—and it's GUARANTEED to get yer toes a'tappin, and yer hands a'clappin'!

: )

The lyrics are pretty easy to understand but you'll find them under the music-only video below.

Hope this awesome track lifts your spirit—and reminds you about the love of our beautiful savior and Lord Jesus—the Messiah!!





Do What The Lord Say Do — Lyrics

Lord, I'm gonna do, (Do what the Lord say do)
What the Lord say do! Yeah, (Do what the Lord say do)
I'm gonna do, (Do what the Lord say do)
What the Lord say do, (Do what the Lord say do)

I tired lyin', (Didn't work)
I tried gamblin', (Didn't work)
I tried everything under the sun,

I'm gonna do, (Do what the Lord say do)
What the Lord say do, (Do what the Lord say do)

To Top

(Hey! Hey!)

I came to Jesus!
Just as I was,
I was worried,
I was wounded—inside

Oh Yeah!
(Oh! yes!)

But I found in Him,
Oh! A sweet little resting place!

That's why I'm gonna do what the Lord say do,
What the Lord say do!

To Top 

Oh! Amazing Grace,
How sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me,
Oh, yeah!

I once was lost,
Oh! But now I'm found,
I'm gonna do (Do what the Lord say do)
What the Lord say do! (Do what the Lord say do)

Continues with variations

Welcome!

Today—you'll find the complete documentary video "God of Wonders" embedded below.

It really is a beautifully made production using amazing, awe inspiring images of natural wonders and all kinds of footage of God's wonderful creatures and creations—and it has clearly touched the hearts of many people.

A Comment Found Under The Documentary On YouTube

The 1 hour 25 minute documentary includes incredible footage and photos—some in close-up and/or extreme slow-motion—of hummingbirds and butterflies and many other amazing animals and creations—from odd and beautiful inhabitants from deep in the sea—to the insects and birds of the air—from DNA and molecules—to tiny seeds to towering Sequoias—from lightning and storms—to distant galaxies and stars!

A section filled with photos of the geometric beauty of individual snowflakes and how they are formed is fascinating—as is a segment on thunderstorms.

Best of all—it is more than just a "nature program" and is filled with scripture proclaiming God's love for all of us expressed throughout all of His marvelous creation.

Heritage Singers - "What a Day That Will Be" - Live From Prague




Hi!

Wow!  God is so good!

I was about to post another version of this song—and it was nice but not wonderful.

While doing a search for the lyrics to "What A Day That Will Be" (found below)—this video of the Heritage Singers performing the song in Prague came up as a suggestion.

Sometimes you have a sense from the first notes that there is something special about a particular song—and that rang through from the first notes on this wonderful version.

------------------------------------------

So—please give it a spin—and let it speak to you of our wonderful Savior Jesus—and the GLORIOUS eternal life that awaits all who believe on him!

-------------------------------------------


9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.






What A Day That Will Be - Lyrics

There is coming a day, when no heartaches shall come,
No more clouds in the sky, no more tears to dim the eye,
All is peace forevermore, on that happy golden shore,
What a day, glorious day that will be

    Chorus:
    What a day that will be, when my Jesus I shall see,
    And I look upon His face,
    The One who saved me by His grace;
    When He takes me by the hand,
    And leads me to the Promised Land,
    What a day, glorious day that will be!


There'll be no sorrows there, and no more burdens to bear,
There'll be no more sickness, and no more pain, no more parting over there;
And forever I'm gonna be, with my God—who died for you and me,
Oh! What a day, glorious day that will be!

    Chorus
   
  What a day, glorious day that will be!!!

Hi!

I written a few times in the past about Miss D's Gospel Show on the radio here in Phoenix, Arizona.

Through her program I found Leander Williams—and his Gospel Quartet Paradise Show on PGGM radio.

You know, God told Noah,

Come along—
(Come along—my friends come along)
It could be any time,
(I don't know when—but He's comin' back real soon)
Come along—
(Come along—my friends come along)
I don't know when—
(I don't know when—But He's comin' back—Comin' back real soon!)

Listen here—

He's comin' like a thief and a robber by night,
(You can't go back with him if your heart ain't right)
My eyes can move—and I can see a new day—I said—
(Lord you've promised from a mighty long way)

(If I were you I wouldn't wait no more!)
(God's getting ready)—To close the door—

(Come aboard)
Get in a hurry—
(Come aboard)
Don't wait no more—

Because God getting ready—

With the doors closed—
(Come aboard)
And I can't get in—
(Come aboard)

Don't be late no more—
(Come aboard)
 Because God's gettin' ready—
(Come aboard)
To close the door—
(Come aboard)

Trust me when I say...
(Come aboard)

(Come aboard)
In my song—
(Come aboard)

TobyMac - I Just Need YOU!


Music Video Below

Carl Bloch - Christ Heals the Paralytic at the Bethesda Pool (1883) - John 3:16-17


 -------------------------------------------------------

Hi!

Last night—while driving around—I was doing some radio channel surfing through several different Christian stations I have set on my deck.

Suddenly—I hit on a song that had my attention in a moment.

I loved the feel of the track and vocals—and fortunately it was playing on a station that shows the artist and song name on the radio's read-out.

I loved it so much—and didn't want to forget it—so I actually called my own phone and left a voice message about to to remind myself:

TobyMac - I Just Need YOU!

--------------------------

When I got home I found the music video for it—which is very cool too—and have shared it below.

--------------------------

TobyMac has been making Christian music for years and was a member of the popular group DC Talk from 1987 to 2001—and has been a successful solo artist since then.

He's had 20 songs on "Billboard's Christian Songs List—and between his solo career and DC Talk has sold more than 10 million albums and won 7 Grammy Awards."

 Hope you feel Blessed by this song!

(lyrics are found under the video)





I Just Need YOU! - LYRICS:

Last night put the heavy on me
Woke up, and I’m feeling lonely
This world gotta a way of showin’ me

Some days it’ll lift you up
Some days it’ll call your bluff
Man, most of my days I ain’t got enough

And all I know—Is You’re my only hope

When I’m up, when I’m down 
When the wolves come around 
When my feet hit the ground 
I just need, I just need U 

On my darkest days, 
when I’m losing faith 
No, it ain’t gonna change 
I just need, I just need U 

Lord, I need U 
Yeah, I just need U

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil—for thou art with me
Thy rod and thy staff …

They comfort me when I’m beat down broken
Hold my heart when it’s split wide-open
Turn these eyes to my sole protector
And break the will of this born defector

Chorus

When You pull me closer I come to life  (4X)

Chorus

Ain’t no way this thing gon’ change,
It’s U I need on my darkest days,
When I’m losing faith
I need U every single day,
Every breath I take

I need U
