Jaime Geideman – Worship Leader
We are in an interesting era of text talk, hashtag language and shortened words like “totes” and “adorbs” (totally and adorable). I must confess that I’ve had a hard time understanding some of the phrases and acronyms. I have googled some texting acronyms to figure out what they are and have googled word for word the following question… “why are people putting a pound symbol in front of words?” And discovered the world of Twitter hashtags.
I have found myself in plenty of situations wondering… what are they saying? I’ve asked that, not just in regards to the latest social media language but also in regards to songs. Singing along to the radio I’ve mumbled my way through plenty of lyrics I don’t understand. Or misheard lyrics thinking it said one thing when it didn’t, I’m sure I’m not the only one.
Every so often we introduce a new song to the Church, the process we use to pick a song is a big deal because we want to say something of value. We want all of the songs to be focused on God and what He has done for us; we want them to be understandable and inspiring. We sit down together as a team and comb through songs asking ourselves the question…what are they saying?
I’m excited about the new song that we are introducing this weekend because I love what this song has to say! The song is “Love came down.” I’d encourage you to read through these powerful lyrics below, take a listen to the song and then sing it out with us this coming weekend!
If my heart is overwhelmed and I cannot hear Your voice
I hold on to what is true, though I cannot see
If the storms of life they come, and the road ahead gets steep
I will lift these hands in faith, I will believe
I’ll remind myself, of all that You’ve done
And the life I have, because of Your son
Love came down and rescued me, love came down and set me free
I am Yours, Lord I’m forever Yours
Mountains high or valley low, I sing out and remind my soul
I am Yours, I am forever Yours
