LYRIC FOR THE DAY 25.9.11 from Covenant Woman by Bob Dylan


“I've been broken, shattered like an
empty cup
I'm just waiting on the Lord to rebuild and fill me up
And I know He will do it 'cause He's faithful and He's true
He must have loved me so much to send me someone as fine as you.

Yes and I just got to tell you
I do intend
To stay closer than any friend
Yes and I just to thank you
Once again
For making your prayers known
Unto heaven for me
And to you, always, so grateful
I will forever be.”

- From Covenant Woman by Bob Dylan

John Trinder and Scott Jamison performed this song as part of our worship this morning and it was a treat; John’s neat sharp
guitar work and Scott’s voice making it his very own. Their reasoning was that our passage was Hosea 2 where God’s covenant is brought before an unfaithful people. The whole relationship parable actually lived out in Hosea’s marriage to Gomer also made this a suitable choice. For Dylan it was a song about his Precious Angel that he had introduced us to on the previous album Slow Train Coming. Saved, from which this album is taken, is an album testifying to the personal effects of Dylan’s late 1978 conversion to Christianity and is simpler and more direct in lyric as a result. Even those who don’t love the album as much as me must surely see this as one of the album’s highlights, emotionally moving and spiritually thankful.



You are very kind. Funny, that coincidence... "Saved" (given advance heckling at JAB)... - it seems a lot of ground was covered this morning.
