Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Psalm 119:105
This was the first non-traditional worship song I ever fell in love with: Thy Word, by Amy Grant. Usually I opt for classic hymns; but I’m sure this one’s on its way to becoming a classic.
This is the first “modern” hymn I ever fell in love with–Thy Word Is a Lamp unto My Feet, sung by Amy Grant. Used to be, if I see a guitar or a microphone, I’m out of there. But posting daily hymns by request has broadened my horizons.
So if you want to make a hymn request today, please go right ahead.
Requested by Erlene, El Shaddai–and I chose this version by Amy Grant because those images of Christ as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah never fail to move me. We need that lion in our lives. We need that lion in our world. We need Him on the throne ruling heaven and earth–come, Lord Jesus, come!
I loved this worship song from the first I ever heard it, years ago. It was with me last night as I was washing dishes, so I loaded it up for this morning–Thy Word is a Lamp unto My Feet, sung by Amy Grant. See Psalm 119, Verse 105.
I just love this worship song, loved it ever since the first time I heard it, years ago on the radio–Thy Word is a Lamp unto My Feet, by Amy Grant. Caught myself whistling it again last night, just before bedtime.
I’m sure a lot of you have treasuries of favorite hymns inside your heads. Take one out and pass it around! You know we love to take hymn requests.
This rates a Wow, don’t you think? Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, performed by Amy Grant: requested by SlimJim. You don’t want to skip this one! Turn up the volume–Christ is born in Bethlehem!
Sometime last century I heard this song, once, on a little Christian radio station that has since passed into history: heard it only once, but couldn’t forget it, longed to hear it again. Now it’s one of my favorites, and sort of demanded to be heard again this morning: Thy Word is a Lamp unto My Feet (from Psalm 119), sung by Amy Grant.
This hymn came to me just now, just before supper, and I’m going with it: Thy Word Is a Lamp Unto My Feet, by Amy Grant, inspired by Psalm 119.
Thank you all for your prayers for my sister.
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. –Psalm 119:105
Speaking for myself, today I need that lamp, today I need that light. God grant it to all of us who call upon His name!
This is Amy Grant with Thy Word Is a Lamp Unto My Feet, and I hope you don’t mind my posting it again.
I happened to listen to Amy Grant’s introduction to this worship song, and it struck me that being a Christian performing artist–a Christian artist, mind you, using one’s art to deliver God’s message–carries with it a burden that cannot be shouldered lightly. People are going to tell you their troubles. And you’re going to wind up praying silently, “O Lord, what can I say? What can I tell this person? And what if I say the wrong thing?”
Thy Word Is a Lamp Unto My Feet, taken from Psalm 119, is one of my very favorite worship songs, here performed by Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith. Now it’ll be with me all day–and I don’t mind at all.
See you when I get back from the nursing home.
