    His Faithfulness - Music set to poetry of Amy Carmichael

    Hello,
    To say I don't post here much is an understatement but I do enjoy reading the wealth of information here on a daily basis. The reason for this post is to alert you to a new CD by our Pastor of Worship (Jim Spencer, Faith Community Church in Kansas City) "His Faithfulness - The Poetry of Amy Carmichael set to music by Jim Spencer". We have been praying for Jim and this project for some time and its release is, with much anticipation, almost here (July 31).

    For those of you familiar with Amy Carmichael, you know the depth of her poetry and of her love for the Lord. The music Jim has written is equally prayerful and worshipful and we believe does much honor to Miss Carmichael. We pray that the Lord might use this cd to His glory.

    Below are a few excerpts of lyrics from my personal favs:

    On Calvary's Cross
    (Lyric Excerpt)

    I have a Savior; though I sought
    Through earth and air and sea
    I could not find a word, a thought
    To show Him worthily

    -Chorus-
    But planted here in rock and moss
    I see the Sign of utmost loss
    I hear a word "“ "œOn Calvary´s cross
    Love gave Himself for Thee
    Love gave Himself for Thee""¦

    Thou Didst Die for Me - Communion Worship Song
    (Lyric Excerpt)

    O my beloved Lord
    Thou Bread of Life adored
    Thou who didst die for me
    O, I worship Thee

    O my beloved Lord
    Thou Wine of Life outpoured
    Thou who didst die for me
    O, I worship Thee
    Lord, I worship Thee"¦

    By Thy Cross and Passion
    (Lyric Excerpt)

    O God of burning altar fire
    O God of love´s consuming flame
    Make pure the flame of our desire
    To win the lost, to seek Thy name

    -Chorus-
    Now by Thy cross and passion, Lord
    Grant us this plea, this sovereign plea
    Save us from choosing peace for sword
    And give us souls to give to Thee

    There is no coldness, Lord, in Thee
    O keep us kindled, lest we bring
    To our dear Lord of Calvary
    Dead ashes for our offering"¦

    Psalms 103:13-14 As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him. 14 For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust.
