Yahweh & 40 – moving worship from U2

Nicole and I watched this video recently and were moved by U2’s worship here. Love the lyrics to Yahweh (included below). Very interesting for us as we seek to try and see how God may be leading us here in Aurora. This song echoes our heart’s desire to be clean, to be used by God’s mercy, to love, our city, our community. We just feel lost in how to do this and at least for me, scared to step out in faith. Would you be willing to pray for us as we seek’s God’s will and direction in ministry here in Aurora?

Take these shoes
Click clacking down some dead end street
Take these shoes
And make them fit
Take this shirt
Polyester white trash made in nowhere
Take this shirt
And make it clean, clean
Take this soul
Stranded in some skin and bones
Take this soul
And make it sing

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, Yahweh
Still I’m waiting for the dawn

Take these hands
Teach them what to carry
Take these hands
Don’t make a fist no
Take this mouth
So quick to critisize
Take this mouth
Give it a kiss

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, Yahweh
Still I’m waiting for the dawn

Still waiting for the dawn, the sun is coming up
The sun is coming up on the ocean
His love is like a drop in the ocean
His love is like a drop in the ocean

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, tell me now
Why the dark before the dawn?

Take this city
A city should be shining on a hill
Take this city
If it be your will
What no man can own, no man can take
Take this heart
Take this heart
Take this heart
And make it brave
