Lyrical Friday- Albertine

Hi Friends.
Last night God gave me awesome insight on songs as our midweek service was not preached through a well written sermon but was delivered through song by our amazing worship team. And so the idea for Lyrical Fridays came to be. Every Friday I will post a song that is not only sweet to listen to but that will challenge us to be lilies among thorns. Be blessed with today's selection, Albertine by Brooke Fraser (you may be seeing a lot of Brooke :-] on Lyrics Fridays ).

Brooke Fraser

I am sitting still
I think of Angelique
Her mother’s voice over me
And the bullets in the wall where it fell silent

And on a thousandth hill
I think of Albertine
There in her eyes what I don’t see
With my own

Now that I have seen
I am responsible
Faith without deeds is dead
Now that I have held you
In my own arms
I cannot let go ‘til you are

I am on a plane
Across a distant sea
But I carry you in me
And in the dust on, the dust on my feet


And I’ll tell the world
I will tell them where I’ve been
I will keep my word
I will tell them, Albertine


I am on a stage
A thousand eyes on me
I will tell them, Albertine
I will tell them, Albertine

If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless. Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world. James 1:26-27
