Songs For Holy Week

Songs for Holy Week4:06 AM.   Since I can’t sleep anyway, I thought I’d put up a few songs you may want to ponder during Holy Week.

1. “Keeping Vigil” connects our own passion with that of Christ.

2. “Stay Awake” takes you through the dismal disorientation the apostle Peter felt while failing to keep watch with Christ in Gethsemane.

3. “This is Love” is taken from the prayer Jesus prays for his friends as he wrestles in the brutal isolation of his passion (John’s Gospel).

4. “Gone is the Light” keens Good Friday’s desolation.

5. “Was it a Morning Like This” sings the joyful astonishment of Christ’s resurrection.

  4. Steve, I just had the same problem and then my techie son came and installed Google Chrome for me instead of just Google. How he did it all, I don’t know but that was the problem.

  5. I am having the same issue. I have five different spots that just say “sound cloud” and what appears to be sound waves. Any suggestions?

  6. Unfortunately, I am having the same problem as Cheryl – this one and your last post. Any ideas?

  18. You, Steve Bell, I have been amazed by God’s wonderworks through and through. I pray that I will harmonize with you Psalm 40. This is my dream that perhaps one day will be fulfilled. Your new songs and website thrill my heart, soul, spirit and God’s Temple. I thank God almighty for His almighty heavenly essence in his beloved Steve Bell. Many thanks indeed for bringing us into God’s presence through your lyrics and music always. One day when The School of Sweethearts is live we will sing your songs Steve. God’s Cheers & Chuckles & Blessings, Hélène xo
