Music Monday

Welcome to a new feature on the blog – Music Monday! I hope to post videos of music that has stuck out to me or moved me in some way – sometimes with commentary, sometimes not. I hope you enjoy the feature and if there is any music that you like in particular, I’d love to hear about it!

This week I’ve been listening to Sing Over Me, a wonderful album that is marketed as lullabies. While the songs certainly have a softer feel to them, the words and style of the music is absolutely amazing. Nichole Nordeman’s “You Are Good” is the one song from this album that sticks out to me more than the rest. It is simple, yet offers up such profound truth and comfort in extolling the goodness of God. In the mundane things of life, God is good. When life brings unexpected change, God is good. When it seems like there is no hope for tomorrow, God is good. During the final choruses, the song “It Is Well” is intertwined beautifully, encouraging us that because God is indeed good, it is well with our souls.

When the sun starts to rise and I open my eyes
You are good, so good
In the heat of the day, with each stone that I lay
You are so good
With every breath I take in, I’ll tell you I’m grateful again
When the moon climbs high before each kiss goodnight
You are good.

When the road starts to turn, around each bend I’ve learned
You are good, so good
And when somebody’s hand holds me up, helps me stand
You are so good
With every breath I take in, I’ll tell you I’m grateful again
Cause it’s more than enough just to know I am loved
And you ARE good

So, how can I thank you? What can I bring?
What can these poor hands lay at the feet of a King?
So I’ll sing you a love song, It’s all that I have
To tell you I’m grateful for holding my life in Your hands.

When it’s dark and it’s cold, and I can’t feel my soul
You are so good
When the world has gone gray, and the rain’s here to stay
You are still good
So with every breath I take in, I’ll tell you I’m grateful again
And the storm may swell, even then ‘It is Well’
And YOU ARE GOOD!

So, how can I thank you? What can I bring?
What can these poor hands lay at the feet of a King?
So I’ll sing you this love song, It’s all that I have
To tell you I’m grateful for holding my life in Your hands

I’ll sing you a love song! It’s all that I have!
To tell you I’m grateful for holding my life in Your hands!!
YOU ARE HOLDING MY LIFE IN YOUR HANDS!!!
