Lyrical Friday - Morning Star

[photo credit]
 Yes today is Saturday but I began this post yesterday so Lyrical Friday (Saturday) it is!

This week I experienced one of the coolest flashbacks of the Jesus Movement: Malcolm Wild and Alwyn Wall reunited for a concert at Calvary Chapel Merrit Isalnd and then rocked it at my home church Wednesday night. Morning Star was one of the songs that I could not stop singing and playing in my head. I found them on iTunes (HERE) and have been listening to them since.

Though this song is relevant to us today considering it was written back in the 70s. Both you and I were born into a world of sin and darkness, and naturally we will experience dark seasons in our earthly life. So to have a song that reminds us that Jesus is light and will get us through our darkest hour is completely relevant.

If you are caught in a dark season, feel lost or abandon, I pray you find shelter in the truth of these lyrics. Stop searching avenues for help and start seeking Jesus who is your bright and Morning star who will guide you step by step. He will give you a song that will last you through the day, through the weeks and years and into eternity.

You light a lamp for me. The Lord, my God, lights up my darkness. Psalm 18:28
He led them from the darkness and deepest gloom; He snapped their chains Psalm 107:14
but even in darkness I cannot hide from you. To you the night shines as bright as day. Darkness and light are the same to you. Psalm 139:12

Morning Star, Maclolm and Alwyn 

Morning Star
Now I know who You are
Why did I look so far
When You are who You say You are
And I'm loving You

Morning Star-shine
I'm so glad that You're mine
You're so easy to find
Even for the very blind
Oh, I'm loving You, loving You
Morning Star

When things go wrong
And I'm not strong enough to carry on
You give me a song in my morning
A song to last me through the day
A song to light my way
Up to the Morning Start
You're lovely, You're the Morning Star

And sometimes I'm lonely, I'm really down and out
But I didn't have to call Your name out loud
I just whispered and to my side You came
And that's love - woo - that's love
I know that it's love
And I'm loving You, loving You lovely

Loving You, loving You lovely
Loving You, loving You lovely
Ooo -- I'm loving You Morning Star
