Rhonda Gunn ~ Your Word

One of my all time favorite albums is I Wonder If by Rhonda Gunn.  This is up there with Steve Bell ~ Beyond a Shadow, Sara Groves ~ Conversations, Peter Penrose (self-titled), Jennifer Knapp ~ Kansas, or any album by Fernando Ortega.  One of the songs on there is entitled Your Word.  It has a haunting melody and such meaningful lyrics that I want to share them here on my blog.

Your Word, by Rhonda Gunn

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God

In a velvet black space, where no moon had ever hung, You spoke everything in place, painted this world’s face, with your Spirit tongue

And as light pierced the dark, racing to its mark, creation’s beating heart emerged…  from Your Word…  Your Word

More powerful than anything, O Sovereign Judge, You are so grand, Ruler of the heavens and the earth, with Your Word

In a lowly dark place, where no curtain ever hung, this world gave birth to grace, into the human race, Spirit Father and Son

All wrapped up in a flesh cocoon, that would bleed break and wound, the unthinkable and the absurd, was Your Word… Jesus – Your Word

More powerful than anything, infallible, truth you bring, faith has come now that we have heard… Your Word

And with each command You give, we die and we live, as we’re confident that we are purged

Heaven and earth may pass away but you will never change, forever will remain… Your Word…  I love… Your Word

Here is another song from the album on youtube.

Have fun and stay busy – Luke 19:13

-The Orange Mailman

    Good to see this post about Rhonda. Rhonda is my cousin. Growing up and spending time with her and her kids, I had little appreciation of the talent behind her writing. Now, I understand her passion for Christ when she penned those words and others.
