a new song.

I was meditating in the Word today and listening to this song by David and Rie of the blog, Home + Harmony.  The song is called A New Song, and it’s based on Psalms 40:1-4, word for word.

Inspired after they had their first child, they decided to put scripture to song so they could sing scripture to their children — what a lovely idea.  Even though this compilation is intended for little ones, I even love the simplicity of their folksy acoustic style, as well as the power of simple scripture set to song.  I played it for Dhara, and she loved it.  We both love it.  Plus, it’s great for slow dancing with your little baby.  Try it sometime.  Dhara was all smiles.

1I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

2He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.

3And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.

4Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.

Psalms 40:1-4 (KJV)
