Renewal Music

I was talking with a new friend tonight. Our daughters are in dance together and she and I and one other mother have really been enjoying getting to know each other. It's been lots of fun and I've learned lots from them already. Anyway we were talking about our vow renewal (you can read about our renewal here )and the music we used. I thought I would share it here. Sadly I was not able to find Rita Springer's version of these songs on playlist, so I had to use someone else's. I don't like them near as much as her versions. She's amazing. The songs are playing on my player and here are the lyrics.

You Are Still Holy

Holy, You are still holy
Even when the darkness surrounds my life
Sovereign, You are still sovereign
Even when confusion has blinded my eyes
Lord, I don't deserve Your kind affection
When my unbelief has kept me from Your touch
I want my life to be a pure reflection
Of Your love
And so I come into Your chamber
And I dance at Your feet, Lord
You are my SaviourAnd I'm at Your mercy
All that has been in my lifeUp 'til now
It belongs to You
You are still holy
Holy, You are still holy
Even though I don't understand Your ways
Sovereign, You will be sovereign
Even when my circumstances don't change
Lord, I don't deserve your tender patience
When my unbelief has kept me from Your truth
I want my life to be a sweet devotionTo You
And so I come into Your chamber
And I dance at Your feet, Lord
You are my Saviour
And I'm at Your mercy
All that has been in my lifeUp 'til now
It belongs to You
I belong to You
And You are still holy
When I Think About the Lord
When I Think about the Lord,
How He saved me,
how He raised me,
how He filled me,
with the Holy Ghost.
How He healed me,
to the uttermost.
When I Think about the Lord,
how He picked me up and turned me around,
how He placed my feet on solid ground
It makes me wanna shout,
Halleilujiah,
Thank you JESUS,
LORD, your worthy,
of all the glory,
and all the honor,
and all the praise...
I just love these songs. I feel like they totally capture where we've come from and all the Lord has done for us. If you want to hear the Rita Springer version you can try youtube or select her as a station on http://www.pandora.com/ (internet radio). If you haven't tried pandora yet, I highly recommend it. You put in all your favorite artists and it will play them and artists that it believes are similar. It's really neat.

Thanks for stopping by my blog (http://www.homeschoolblogger.com/flybaby).

I read some of your entries, but still haven't figured out what anniversary you are celebrating by renewing your vows. (I assumed it was in conjunction with an anniversary.) In May hubby and I celebrate our 30th.
