Intercede – Romans 8:26March 17, 2008 at 9:54 am | Posted in church music, lyrics only, song ideas | Leave a comment
here’s a very short lyric based on Romans 8:26.
I am weary
I am weak
Dont know what to pray
Or how to speak
Come Holy Spirit
Groan for me
a couple random thoughts on this:
perhaps it could be in the genre of that I call the “campfire songs” (like “As the Deer” and such), or perhaps something like John Michael Talbot would do (I really like a bunch of his scripture songs and aspire to that kind of Bible-based songwriting). perhaps I can expand it by including 8:27 as well.
I feel like a lot of the times I write stuff it’s too wordy. clearly this one isnt. I like that it’s pretty close to the actual Bible verse. hopefully I can write a little tune for it that is appropriate and yet “catchy” enough to stick in my head, because I often need to pray this. Michelle has recently learned about contemplative prayer and this seems to fit with a lot of what that’s about.
