I’m rather busy these days. Apologies to all those who visit regularly. Feel free to say something though.

1. Grab the nearest CD

2. Put it in your CD player (or start your mp3 player)

3. Skip to the third track (or load the third track in your playlist)

4. Post the first verse in your journal along with these instructions.

    Don’t name the band, nor the album title

Together in this place of worship

Your greatness we proclaim

We stand as one in giving You

All glory and acclaim

To You our hearts are open

To You our hands we raise

Come take the place of honour in our lives

A pat on the back for the first person who can tell me the artist, album and title. Of course, a song:

Every New Day

Five Iron Frenzy

When I was young, the smallest trick of light

Could catch my eye

Then life was new and every new day

I thought that I could fly

I believed in what I hoped for

And I hoped in things unseen

I had wings and dreams could soar

I just don’t feel like flying anymore

When the stars threw down their spears

Watered Heaven with their tears

Before words were spoken

Before eternity

Dear Father, I need You

Your strength my heart to mend

I want to fly higher

Every new day again

When I was small, the furthest I could reach

Was not so high

Then I thought the world was so much smaller

Feeling I could fly

Through distant deeps and skies

Behind infinity

Below the face of Heaven

He stoops to create me

Dear Father, I need You

Your strength my heart to mend

I want to fly higher

Every new day again

Man versus himself

Man versus machine

Man versus the world

Mankind versus me

The struggles go on

The wisdom I lack

The burdens keep piling

Up on my back

So hard to breathe

To take the next step

The mountain is high

I wade in the depths

Yearning for grace

And hoping for peace

Dear God increase

Healing hands of God have mercy

On our unclean souls once again

Jesus Christ, light of the world

Burning bright within our hearts forever

Freedom means love without condition

Without a beginning or an end

Here’s my heart, let it be forever Yours

Only You can make every new day seem so new
