A Living Prayer – Alison Krauss

Back from a long, restful, wonderful weekend. Someone sent me this clip from Jay Leno’s show with a song by Allison Krauss that has invited them into a wonderful space of grace. The song is A Living Prayer, I love that this was on a show like Leno’s. How cool is that:

Enjoy:

A Living Prayer
Songwriter: Ronald Franklin Block
Publisher: MOONLIGHT CANYON PUBLISHING

In this world I walk alone
With no place to call my home
But there’s one who holds my hand
The rugged road through barren lands
The way is dark, the road is steep
But He’s become my eyes to see
The strength to climb, my griefs to bear
The Savior lives inside me there

In Your love I find release
A haven from my unbelief
Take my life and let me be
A living prayer, my God to Thee

In these trials of life I find
Another voice inside my mind
He comforts me and bids me live
Inside the love the Father gives

In Your love I find release
A haven from my unbelief
Take my life and let me be
A living prayer, my God to Thee

Take my life and let me be
A living prayer, my God to Thee

    Aaaaaah. I can’t think of a more angelic voice to sing this touching song. You made my day today posting this. It is a balm to my weary soul.

    Wayne,

    Just an FYI (from one who’s loved this song for awhile now), the songwriter, Ron Block, plays with her band, and writes his thoughts on following Christ on his website, http://www.ronblock.com. Here is my Ron Block favorite that is worth checking out: http://www.ronblock.com/site.php?em2645=144446_-1__0_~0_-1_8_2009_0_0&em2644=144444_-1__0_~0_-1_8_2009_0_0&content=recordings

    I’m so glad this song was on Leno! We’ve had the CD for a while and love Alison Krauss and this song – how hauntingly beautiful in a heaven kind of way. Every time I hear it I get goose bumps – I think it’s Sarayu-inspired!

    She’s become quite popular in the last year or two through that album with Robert Plant.

    This song is beautiful and the words are great!
