It’s Friday: Bono and Eugene Peterson talk Psalms

Bono, the lead singer of U2, sits down with Eugene Peterson, the author of the popular Bible translation The Message, to talk about the Psalms.

“As a songwriter it’s very clear to me that Eugene Peterson is a poet as well as a scholar. He brings the musicality to God’s Word that I’m sure was always there.”
Bono, Grammy award-winning artist and lead singer of U2.

“Bono is singing to the very people I did this work for. I feel that we are allies in this. He is helping get me and the Message to the very people Jesus spent much of his time with.”
Eugene Peterson, beloved author, pastor, and writer of The Message.

The film is produced by Fuller Theological Seminary’s Fuller Studio.

A new video from Martin Smith, the title might be familiar but this is a new song:

Great, Your faithfulness
O God my father
O God my father
Your love it never fades
And so I’ll love You, until the end

 

When shadows fall
You never change
From age to age
You never change

 

Great is Your faithfulness, Your faithfulness
Through the years You’ve always been there
Great is Your love for us, Your love for us
Through the years You’ll always be there

 

Great is Your kindness God
You are our shelter, our dwelling place
Your presence like a fire
Hope for tomorrow, strength for today

 

We will stand, we will stand
Upon Your promises
We are strong, we are strong
Because our hope is in You
We will run, we will run, we will run
We belong, we belong, we belong to You, to You

Of grace in our lives
Oh Father, how You brought us through
When deep were the wounds
And dark was the night
The promise of Your love You proved

 
Now every battle still to come
Let this be our song

 
It is well (It is well)
With my soul (With my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul

Another song from the album if King of My Soul:

King of my heart, king of my soul
You are the one that I live for
No other name, no other throne
It’s you alone

It’s Friday: “Song of Solomon” by Martin Smith

Martin Smith has just released his brand new music video for ‘Song of Solomon’:

Over The Mountains
Over the Sea
Here You come running my Lover to me

 

When I feel the cold of winter
And this cloak of sadness, I need You
All the evil things that shake me
All the words that break me, I need You

 

Over The Mountains
Over the Sea
Here You come running my Lover to me

 

Do not hide me from Your presence
Pull me from Your shadows, I need You
Beauty wrap Your arms around me
Sing Your song of kindness I need You
