What are you listening to?

This week, let's encourage each others' hearts with what we're listening to.

You do listen to music, right?

We're encouraged in both the Old Testament and the New to make music and praise our Lord. Sometimes the song in your heart may be just what someone else needs to hear!

This week I've been humming this hymn:

I need Thee every hour, most gracious Lord;
No tender voice like Thine can peace afford.

I need Thee, oh, I need Thee;
Every hour I need Thee;
Oh, bless me now, my Savior,
I come to Thee.
I need Thee every hour, stay Thou nearby;
Temptations lose their pow’r when Thou art nigh.

I need Thee every hour, in joy or pain;
Come quickly and abide, or life is vain.

I need Thee every hour; teach me Thy will;
And Thy rich promises in me fulfill.

I need Thee every hour, most Holy One;
Oh, make me Thine indeed, Thou blessed Son.

This has to be one of my all time favourite songs. It's by Fernando Ortega, and is perfect for singing and humming and contemplating at the end of this day.
I especially like the line that talks about anxious thoughts "binding", because that is very often exactly what they do, especially at night.


Jesus, King Of Angels Lyrics

Jesus King of angels heaven's light
Shine Your face upon this house tonight
Let no evil come into my dreams
Light of heaven keep me in Your peace
Remind me how You made dark spirits flee
And spoke Your power to the raging sea
And spoke Your mercy to a sinful man
Remind me Jesus this is what I am

The universe is vast beyond the stars
But You are mindful when the sparrow falls
And mindful of the anxious thoughts
That find me, surround me and bind me

With all my heart I love You Sovereign Lord
Tomorrow let me love You even more
And rise to speak the goodness of Your name
Until I close my eyes and sleep again


Jesus King of angels heaven's light
Hold my hand and keep me through this night
