Song-lyrics Sunday 1/15/12


After I read my current book I’m going to start working on my Middle Earth reading goal. I’m also starting reasearch and planning on my very first novel, which is both exciting and scary. Both of these projects will be detailed and time-consuming, and I will need a lot of guidance from God for the outcomes I hope to get. With that in mind, I’ve chosen a song this week that I find fitting – that I can apply to where I am heading. The video that I found on YouTube has the audio from a live performance, and only a picture to hold the screen. Since there is really nothing to look at on the video I’m going to post it first, with the lyrics after. So hit play, then read along.

“When God Dips His Pen Of Love In My Heart”
as performed by Alison Krauss and the Cox Family

When God dips His love in my heart

When God dips His pen of love in my heart
And He writes my soul a message He wants me to know
His spirit all divine fills a sinful soul of mine
When God dips His love in my heart

Well I said I wouldn’t tell it to a livin’ soul
How He brought salvation and He made me whole
But I found I couldn’t hide such a love as Jesus did impart
Well He made me laugh and He made me cry, set my sinful soul on fire
When God dips His love in my heart

Well sometimes though the way is dreary, dark and cold
And some unburdened sorrow keeps me from the goal
I go to God in prayer, I can always find Him there
To whisper sweet peace to my soul

Well I said I wouldn’t tell it to a livin’ soul
How He brought salvation and He made me whole
But I found I couldn’t hide such a love as Jesus did impart
Well He made me laugh and He made me cry, set my sinful soul on fire
When God dips His love in my heart

He walked up every step of Calvary’s rugged way
And gave His life completely to bring a better day
My life was steeped in sin but in love He took me in
His blood washed away every stain

Well I said I wouldn’t tell it to a livin’ soul
How He brought salvation and He made me whole
But I found I couldn’t hide such a love as Jesus did impart
Well He made me laugh and He made me cry, set my sinful soul on fire
When God dips His love in my heart
