Music that reaches your heart or takes you beyond it
« on: January 08, 2013, 08:48:22 AM »


This thread is for any music which has touched something in your heart.  You know when it has when you then feel your heart reaching out with it.

It doesn't necessarily have to be a 'christian' song per se, music is a fantastic gift we have all been given freely.  It is as much a form of communication as words, listening, thinking and speaking.  Music is good for when words are not enough.
 

Psalm 57                                                                      Ephesians 5

7 My heart, O God, is steadfast,                                 19 speaking to one another with psalms,
    my heart is steadfast;                                             hymns, and songs from the Spirit.
    I will sing and make music.                                   Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord,
8 Awake, my soul!                                                     20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything,
    Awake, harp and lyre!                                            in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
    I will awaken the dawn.

This song really set me off examining myself and my actions and words, how I treated people, how I respected people.   Be the change you want to see type thing.

I'm a real old sentimentalist when it comes to being moved by music.
But being old the ones that move me are more slow and C&W style than the reggae stuff that I think you like.
But, if you don't mind I'll use this thread to 'fill your boots' with some of mine.
Is that OK?

we had this one in Church on Sunday - not sung it for ages so it came back fresh.  I just love the words.

lol @ reggae stuff...This thread is for anyone on the forums who wants to post as it introduces in the opening post, so you are most welcome to post what you like.  You will be surprised maybe at the broad genre of music I like.  From classical to reggae!   

I dont want to 'own' this thread, just wanted to kickstart it.  Be interesting to see the forums 'soul collection'.

In my local church the yougsters went on an international youth pilgrim and took the entire communion service when they returned.
For the service they played to following track continuously (it was what they used during the Pilgrimage)

Which doesn't respond to Terry's tip so lets try

Now we'll try one of my C&W style favourites (never mind the 'sinner/singer'....it's the song that counts.)

((((group hug)))) thank you all for embracing this thread.   Once we have a few posts going, i intend to put together an 'online meditation' which will include a selection of the songs and will be progressive, along with some other things.  Will be something we can do as a online community, but doesn't need to be 'live'.  We will be doing it both in our own times and as a group. 

Now to test out this new posting links thingymybob
