‘And you can bring it on world,
‘Cos in the end love wins big,
And there are some of us who will not be lying down“.
- From Let Yourself by Martyn Joseph
From Songs For The Coming Home, my album of the week and one of the records of the year, this song seemed to be appropriate as a Lyric For The Day as Superstorm Sandy hits the north east coast of America. It is of course about the storms of life. The song sings “if you’re drifting away/if it’s falling apart...” and asks people to find something within their souls to deal with the onslaught. These last lines send a nod to Rob Bell’s controversial book Love Wins and gives the soul the hint to where strength can be summoned; the love of God giving indignant courage and faith in the disconcerting chaos that inner storms or weather storms throw at us. Prayers for the north east coast of America.
