You want me to narrow it down to three? O my, that is next to impossible! I always seem to have a new “favorite” song about every two weeks. I love worship music. It’s about all I listen too. The Vineyard label is great. I love Vineyard music because of the intimacy often expressed in the lyrics. I also love Dennis Jernigan’s music. Even though he is an “ex-gay”, he sings and writes from his own struggle with his sexuality. Again he has a lot of intimacy in his lyrics. I love the Passion worship group as well. I think their name describes them well. As far as picking my three favorite songs of all time I would have to say:
1. Until Your Love Broke Through by Keith Green.
“Like a foolish dreamer trying to build a high way to the sky all my hopes would come tumbling down and I never knew just why. Until today when You pulled away the clouds that hung like curtains on my eyes.”
For years I tried to fight my way into heaven by suppressing my sexual orientation. It was failure after failure. Then on day the cloud of unknowing was lifted and God’s love broke through to me. I just really relate to the song.
2. Great is Thy Faithfulness
I weep every time I hear that song. It’s so true.
3. Reels by Iona
It’s a LONG story.
