I recently released a new album (acoustic chronicles) and wanted to give everyone a breakdown of what these songs mean. They are all very deep and biblical so I wanted to make sure and explain them so I have a place for anyone who wants to know all the meaning behind them. Most of the lyrics are old hymns that I revamped to fit my melodies. But this is one of the songs I had the pleasure of writing the lyrics to with some friends of mine. Here they are in full.
The Comfort Song
Blest be to God, Father of Jesus Christ, Prophet, Priest and King
Lord of mercies, God of all comfort, in all our sufferings
Oh Lord, may it be to Me, as You would have it be
Knowing this pain and tasting this bitterness, from the hand of God
He has made us, a comfort to those in need, as He has been to us
He delivered us from such a peril, and He will again
On Him we’ve set a hope for deliverance, in Him, our hope rests
For Your praise!
Most of this song was written from 2 Corinthians 1:3-7 and Luke 1:38. It is a song proclaiming the comfort that God gives us in times of need. Not only that, but, as we have experienced that comfort, we to give that comfort to others. What are we talking about when we say comfort? Comfort in this context is not defined as we usually hear this word. It is the kind of comfort that gives us peace and confidence in Christ alone. The kind of comfort that enables us to feel hopeful, victorious and even joyful in the midst of suffering. How? Because we know that even hard times are in the will of God for our ultimate good and His glory. God will make all things beautiful in its time, Ecc 3:11. And as we give this kind of comfort to Gods children then this allows them to cling to Christ that much more. This is one of the blessings of grace that God has given to His children. It was never meant to be just you and God. We are to take part in each others lives as to encourage one another in Christ. That’s called “the Church”. The song goes on to explain how God has already saved those who believe in Him in an eternal sense with His work on the cross (Justification). But He continues to help us and refine us with each waking day (Sanctification). And one day He has promised to come back for us and that is what we set our hope on. I pray this song helps these truths reach down into your heart and soul to worship God more.
