Psalm 139 - Chloe and Sally

This weeks song is very special to me. Not just becausee it's based on one of my favourite Psalms (I've used Psalm 139 as inspiration on this plog before - here). But because in a spontaneous sessions first, it's a duet with one of my favourite people - my niece Chloe Turner.

A few years ago, when Chloe was only 10 and on a visit with me over the summer holidays, we decided we would do some worship together.  I asked her to write out a few verses of her favourite Psalm and we sat at the piano and made up a spontaneous song based on those verses.  I couldn't believe my ears!  Here was a 10 year old girl making up a song off the top of her head, making up harmonies and melodies and singing beautiful and creative praise to our God.  I'm not ashamed to admit I had a bit of a tear in my eye because it touched me so much.

Fast forward a few years and Chloe is now a beautiful young woman of God.  She serves on her church worship team, her youth team, and is a dedicated lover of God.  I'm so proud of the person she has become and is becoming! So the last time she came down, we recorded a track based on her choice of Psalm 139:23-24:

23 Search me, God, and know my heart;
    test me and know my anxious thoughts.
24 See if there is any offensive way in me,
    and lead me in the way everlasting.

So here we are (on a track recorded and then remixed by my Lion & I bandmate James Bough, and of course it's all spontaneous!).  Free to download!  Share it with your friends :)
