The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
I love the music of Downhere. They’re latest CD, ‘On The Altar of Love’ contains some fantastic songs with lyrics that are inspired by scripture. Which I think is why listening to the songs, my heart responds with praise and worship. One of these songs is a song of thankful prayer.
‘For memories on a starlit night North of the Denbigh line, oh Lord / For frosted pines shining like diamonds in the morning sun / For a pretty girl and for falling in love, oh love / For spring ice churning the driftwood shore / For birdsong air and windswept hair / For fiddle head strings, and flower bows // For thunder clouds rolling in a purple evening, / While Aspen leaves play tambourine, / For a soul, a song, and a voice to sing, / Just what I’m thinking // Thank You, God, for the open sky / Mysterious depths of her ocean eyes / Thank You for my dreams, my dreams / A poetry both tragic and beautiful / Thank You for life // For everything revealed to see / For what’s kept in mystery, oh Lord / From the finer things to the shirt on my back / The less I have the less I lack / For passion and all that’s within me / All that’s within me // Behind every wonder I find a clue / Beginning to believe that it’s coming true / I look onto a new rose dawn debut / Because with every breath You make me new / Before I turn it in tonight / Thank You for life //’
