I love the Weareworship sites in the US and the UK which feature several free MP3 downloads each week. At the UK site this week they’re offering a wonderful new Stuart Townend/ Keith Getty adaptation of a classic William Cowper hymn. What a great prayer for a Saturday evening and preparation for Sunday worship. [Note you don’t have to live in the UK to join the UK version of the site or benefit from the free downloads]
O for a closer walk with God
A calm and heavenly frame,
A light to shine upon the road
That leads me to the Lamb.
Where is the blessèdness I knew
When I first saw the Lord?
Where is that soul-refreshing view
Of Jesus and His word?
O Fire of God, come burn in me;
Renew a holy passion,
Till Christ my deepest longing be,
My never-failing fountain,
My never-failing fountain.
William Cowper (1731-1800)
Adapt. & new music: Stuart Townend & Keith Getty
