Girl On The Edge Of The Photograph (For Lindsay Anderson-Emerson)

Lyric For The Day 21.4.12 from Blessed To Be A Witness by Ben Harper

Ben Harper

“So much sorrow and pain
Still I will not live in vain
Like good questions never asked
Is wisdom wasted on the past
Only by the grace of God go I
Go I

I am blessed
I am blessed
I am blessed
I am blessed
I am blessed
I am blessed
I am blessed to be a witness”

-      From Blessed To Be A Witness by Ben Harper

I got tipped off to this one by my former colleague Rev Whitney Wilkinson who Facebooked that she was going to preach this song in conversation with Luke 24 where Jesus sneaks up on two disciples on the Emmaus road after his resurrection.

Spirituality is all over Harper’s work and this is as blatant as he gets. There is sense of committing to that which is bigger, a life that knowing that it is blessed is going to sacrifice itself to something of meaning.
