true story

"Far off hymns and funeral marches sound the same again
My ears are worn and weary strangers in a strange land
And I need a new song
I need a new song

And all I am is breath and vapour and shadows
And all I have is what I need, this I know
That I need a new song
Yeah I need a new song

Waiting in the night for you Lord
Waiting in the sky for you, you ohh

Prayers and aching in my body, in my lungs
Swear the bones around my heart are coming undone
As I, I need a new song
I need a new song

So I’m waiting in the night for you Lord
Waiting in the sky for you, you
Waiting in the night for you, you
I’m waiting in the sky for you

Words are failing
My melodies falter
My voice is breaking
My heart is burning
‘Cause blessing and honour
Glory and power
Praise and worship
They belong to you

I need a new song..."



*audrey assad-- new song.
at the end of an insane (ok so 50 hrs isn't that insane but it is to me) work week, at the end of my strength and desperate for God to restore the joy & faith and gloriousness of sunday-thursday...
amen audrey. i need a new song.
but the good news is, I KNOW WHOM I HAVE BELIEVED and He is in the business of writing me new melodies, of pulling me out of myself and restoring. makes being alive beautiful.
