Having a Life Song and Life Playlist

I’m a firm believer in having both a Life Song and Life Playlist.

A Life Song is the song that captures your soul and always touches you when you hear it.

My Life Song is “How Firm a Foundation.”

The final verse is my favorite and I’ve leaned on it (and the Jesus it speaks of) for all of my adult life.  I’ve found that He is faithful.

“The soul that on Jesus doth lean for repose,
I will not, I will not, desert to his foes;
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I’ll never, no never, no never forsake.”

A Life Playlist is the list of songs that mean the most to your life.  Songs you’ve turned to in both the best and worst times of life.  A true Life Playlist must fit on one 80 minute CD.  Here are the current top songs in my Life Playlist:

Like me, my Life Playlist is ecletic.

I’d love to hear about your Life Song and see a screenshot of your Life Playlist.

Complete lyrics of “How Firm a Foundation.”

  1. How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
    Is laid for your faith in His excellent word!
    What more can He say than to you He hath said—
    To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?
  2. “Fear not, I am with thee, oh, be not dismayed,
    For I am thy God, and will still give thee aid;
    I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,
    Upheld by My gracious, omnipotent hand.
  3. “When through the deep waters I call thee to go,
    The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow;
    For I will be with thee thy trouble to bless,
    And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress.
  4. “When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
    My grace, all-sufficient, shall be thy supply;
    The flame shall not harm thee; I only design
    Thy dross to consume and thy gold to refine.
  5. “The soul that on Jesus doth lean for repose,
    I will not, I will not, desert to his foes;
    That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
    I’ll never, no never, no never forsake.”
