Bible Marginalia- Adding Song Lyrics

Bible Marginalia Series- #63

Sometimes the study of a series
 of Bible passages
causes a song to erupt in our hearts.
Here daughter, Jessica, 
was looking at the story of Samuel
 and the defeat of the Philistines.
He sets aside a space 
to be called "Ebenezer"-
 "Till now the Lord has helped us."

Yes, Lord, 
"Come thou
 fount of every blessing.
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace.
Streams of mercy never ceasing,
call for songs of loudest praise.
Here's my heart, Lord, take and seal it.
Seal it for thy courts above."

This song was written by pastor
 and hymnist Robert Robinson
at the age of 22 in 1757.

Chris Rice sings with Lyrics

Here is a look at Psalm 18.
   The rocking earth beneath 
and rolling waves rescue.
The story here is brought together by
the song Oceans- by Hillsong.

Listen here---Oceans by Hillsong

So I will call upon your name-
and keep my eyes above the waves.
When oceans rise,
 my soul will rest in your embrace.
 For I am yours and you are mine.
Spirit lead me where 
my trust is without borders.
Let me walk upon the waters
 wherever you would call me-
in the presence of my Savior.

Music adds so much to 
worship for many of us.
It is often the glue 
that holds it all together.
Two songs-
 written hundreds of years apart.
Still speaks to our hearts-
 in the margins of our Bible.
As we worship Him- 
with heart, mind, and soul.

Thank you Jessica, 
for sharing your heart.
