I’ve recently discovered some new music (actually old, old lyrics put to new tunes) being churned out by a local church in Louisville, KY. This CD, “Over the Grave” is made up of several revamped lyrics written by Isaac Watts (1674-1748).
I’ve had this one playing for the past week and have truly enjoyed the arrangements. We just introduced one of their songs, “Refuge” two Sundays ago. Here is the lyrics from the chorus:
“I know my days are in Your hands/though I draw near to dust/You are the God in whom I trust/you are my refuge./So lift up your voice and sing aloud,/and praise Him all you saints/How wondrous is his grace/He is our refuge.”
