A Single Song Can Do That.
There is a song that has become the most influential praise and worship song in my life.
“How Deep the Father’s Love for Us” by Stuart Townend has all the elements that I love in a worship song. To begin with, I generally enjoy praise and worship songs written in 6-8 timing. There’s a slight Celtic feel to them that resounds in me for some reason.
Secondly and in reference to this particular song, I enjoy the depth of the lyrics theologically. They always bring me to that place where I am reminded of the great sacrifice Christ embraced for me. This feeling is always followed by a sense of conviction and purifying repentance. For some reason, this song renews me time and time again.
Check out the video-interview below, with Stuart Townend on his popular worship song, How Deep the Father’s Love for Us.
Obviously, this song is quite popular and has been performed and recorded by numerous artists. Yesterday afternoon I spent some time listening to some various versions, interviews and video compilations.
As I searched through video compilations, one in particular hit me in a such a way that I was brought to tears and repentance. The music was arranged by Phillips, Craig & Dean, video footage taken from The Passion of The Christ and arranged by The Aristophrenium.
I have attached the video to this post. However, before you view it, please be warned that the footage is very graphic. Perhaps, this clip should not be viewed in the presence of minors.
