How beautiful

Hi

A long time between drinks.  I’m still around!  Been reflecting on a passage from Romans 10. In it, Paul references Isaiah 52:7:

How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion,” Your God reigns!”

And then – as the Focus was crawling along Brisbane’s Western Freeway yesterday morning on my way to a meeting, most of a song based on those great words, they came to me.

So – here I have what is comparatively rare for me – a more-traditional “worship” song.  I used the term “worship song” loosely, for too often people think of “worship song” as solely a song of praise, forgetting that lament, intercession and confession are also part of worship.

Enough, here is is.  These are busy days but I hope to complete the backing and vocal track in the next week or so.  How beautiful has the option of an echo thing happening (men/women OR cantor/congregation OR all/women) in the “How beautiful” lines.  See what you think.

Shalom,

David

How beautiful    music score

How beautiful
How beautiful
How beautiful the feet of those
Who bring good news
How beautiful
How beautiful
How beautiful the feet of those
who sing “God reigns.”

Jesus, gift your heart
that lives compassion
Give to us your hands
that welcome wide
O, gift to us your voice proclaiming
God has come to save
Gift to us your feet
to bring your praise

How beautiful
How beautiful
How beautiful the feet of those
who bring good news
How beautiful
How beautiful
How beautiful the feet of those
who sing “God reigns.”
