Behind the lyrics:
I heard this instrumental for the first time several months ago. Each time I heard it, I would keep hearing “As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death” at the beginning of it.
Last week a brother of mine encouraged me by sharing Isaiah 41. It is a chapter on God encouraging Israel. In the same way, I pray that God be glorified in all that we do as we point to Christ to all those around us.
When we receive the life of Christ through the Holy Spirit, He unites us with God so that His love is demonstrated in us. The goal of the indwelling Holy Spirit is not just to unite us with God, but to do it in such a way that we will be one with the Father in exactly the same way Jesus was. – Oswald Chambers
As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death (Psalm 23)
All my flesh is burning off (Romans 6:11)
No need to take a breath
Hide me Lord
Draw me toward
By Your grace (Ephesians 2:8-9)
In this place
In my heart
In my home
Dwell in me
So that we
You love me
I wanna see
He’s my only Thesis
Turned water to wine (John 2:1-11)
He eclipsed Dionysus
He’s freed us
From death to life
From grace to grace
John’s bitter book (Revelation 10:9-10)
Honey bee’d us
Here take a bite
He kneads us
The Bread of life (John 6:35)
He feeds us
No myth no riddle
He is my acquittal
Truth sweet like a skittle
Lord please bring Your chisel
Once a worm (Isaiah 41:14)
Now Your sickle (Isaiah 41:15)
Harvest plentiful… such a shame the workers fickle (Matthew 9:37)
In Your arms
Saw me falling
Took the charge
He died daily
Now living large
God in heaven
Glory and honor
No lethargic bone in Your body (The true church, the body of Christ)
Let’s all repent
He’ll host our party
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside quiet waters.
He restores my soul;
He guides me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You have anointed my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life,
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
