“I Will Listen” – words & music by Gordon Light
A new song with words and music by Gordon Light has been added to the site. Gordon’s comments about the song:
“The song is based on Psalm 85, especially verses 8-13. In earlier verses of the psalm, there is lament… a cry for God to bring restoration and steadfast love to the people, and to the earth itself. But having cried out, the psalmist realizes that one has to be still, trusting and open: “Let me hear what God the Lord will speak, for he will speak peace…”
My world and my own soul are often so noisy – the song calls one to quieten oneself and allow God to speak and act.”
The Audio Sample features the song sung in its entirety by Common Cup Company.
