Farther Along

Besides setting a wonderful running pace, the music and lyrics of Josh Garrels are rich with the eschatological hope that believers share in Christ.

Take a look at the last verse of “Farther Along” off his album Love & War & The Sea In Between:

Still I get hard pressed on every side
Between the rock and a compromise
Like the truth and pack of lies fightin’ for my soul
And I’ve got no place left go
Cause I got changed by what I’ve been shown
More glory than the world has known
Keeps me ramblin’ on

Skipping like a calf loosed from its stall
I’m free to love once and for all
And even when I fall I’ll get back up
For the joy that overflows my cup
Heaven filled me with more than enough
Broke down my levee and my bluff
Let the flood wash me

And one day when the sky rolls back on us
Some rejoice and the others fuss
Cause every knee must bow and tongue confess
That the son of god is forever blessed
His is the kingdom, we’re the guests
So put your voice up to the test
Sing Lord, come soon

As I was linking to Josh’s website this morning, I noticed this trailer for a documentary that made me like him even more:

(Thanks to Scott T. for turning me on to such a great musician/theologian)
