This weeks song is "Enthralled". As usual, it's available for free download by clicking the player below. Based on Psalm 45.
I love Psalm 45. I've heard it sung so many times, by so many different people, but it never gets old! It starts with a statement by the writer, and then moves on to talk about the excellency of the King. The excellency of Jesus:
My heart is stirred by a noble theme as I recite my verses for the king;my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer. You are the most excellent of men, and your lips have been anointed with grace, since God has blessed you forever (Psalm 45: 1-2)
It then goes on to entreat the bride to listen and hear the important message - that the King desires her beauty. That she needs to leave everything behind, and throw herself on the love of the King.
Listen, O daughter, consider and give ear: Forget your people and your father's house. The king is enthralled by your beauty... (Psalm 45:10-11)
"Give it all up!! Jesus finds you irresistible!"
