un-reroute the river
let the dam water be
there are some people down the way who are thirsty
so let the liquid spirit free
the people are thirsty ‘cause of man’s unnatural hand
watch what happens when the people catch wind of water hitting the banks, that hard dry land’
anyone remember the series of worship tricks on this blog? i haven't posted one for ages. it's not that i have stopped being interested in things that are soulful and evoke worship creatively. it's just been a busy few years so i have had less time!
anyway i have heard this tune liquid spirit by gregory porter on the craig charles funk and soul show a few times now over the last couple of months and his album was finally released this week. (i also loved his tune earlier this year - 1960 what). i sometimes think that alt worship and indeed me personally find it easier to create worship out of the melancholic stuff of life - a lot of the best art comes from that place. but it's wonderful to come across something occasionally that is simply infused with joy and hope. so bang this tune on and be uplifted! i have no idea what porter has in mind in writing this lyric. i expect it to get added to grace's playlist at least! here he is in action...
