Last week I was listening to Aaron Shust’s Anything Worth Saying CD in my car to and from work as well as to and from my church’s second visit to Shepherd’s Door to cook and serve dinner. I love this CD, but my favorite song by far is My Savior My God. It brings tears of gratitude and joy to my eyes whenever I hear it.
The opening guitar is beautiful and the chorus is awesome to sing along to. It makes a slow commute, like my one on the way to Shepherd’s Door, not only more tolerable but downright enjoyable. I sometimes wonder what people in the other cars think of me singing and praising at the top of my lungs, but I don’t really care. I’m just happy that God is blessed by my praising.
My favorite part of this song is the second verse that says:
Yes, living, dying, let me bring
My strength, my solace from this spring
That He who lives to be my King
Once died to be my Savior
The thought that the King of the universe would die to save me so that I could spend eternity with me just astounds me. Before I knew Him, I was nothing worth dying for. But He knew what I could be with Him in my heart and in my life. Knowing what was possible, though not certain, He took the risk and gave everything He had to be my God now and forever.
He died for you, too, and wants to hear you sing:
My Savior loves, my Savior lives
My Savior’s always there for me
My God He was, my God He is
My God He’s always gonna be
Won’t you sing along with me and Aaron today in praise of our Savior?
