This is the first song on my Lent playlist. If there was ever a song made for Lent this seems to be it. Could just be the song Jesus' Abba sang over him during the 40 days in the desert. It's almost as though God had to put Jesus through the test to see what he was made of. Take a look at the full lyrics and you'll see how it fits with the Biblical account. Perhaps God was even 'scared' about the outcome as presumably the temptations were as real as anything any human faces, Jesus' divinity counted for nothing...
Here are some comments from YouTube on this song:
'Fantastic, life affirming song. Who hasn't ever closed their eyes and prayed for a better tomorrow? Real lyrics for real people.'
'omg i love this song it got my parents through som hard times when work went well crap and its got me through some times when i've felt like dying i love it :D:D:D'
'You know what is the best about them. The fact that almost all their songs speak straight right into every one of our souls. Their songs helped me to see myself, to realize who i am, to pursue happiness and meaning of my life.'
As a Christian who was brought up singing hymns and 'worship songs' in church I wish I could say the same thing about those songs, but honestly I can't. 1 or 2, sure, but mostly, no.
a time for quiet...
