Captured by Rita Springer

I tend to post lyrics from songs that touch me. Tonight... as I was waiting on at a cold and empty train station captured by Rita Springer came on my iPhone... and I was just blown away.

I was cold and kind of scared... feeling the vibe of not knowing what I was doing. I'm not a big "Christian" music fan - I know some people who only listen to Christian music and I think that is such a waste!

Everyone has some form of God-given creativity within them... and to limit this creativity to only "Christian" music is nonsense... and anyway there is no such thing as the sacred/secular divide.

Here's the lyrics:
I’m captured, I’m constrained
I’m in love with Your name
I’m undone and I’m insane
Only You can satisfy

Oh, amazing love, oh, amazing love
I’ve found
Oh, amazing God, oh, amazing God
Come down

I’m surrounded, and I am safe
I’m bound by cords of grace
I’m broken but I am strong
Only You can satisfy


Oh, amazing love
Oh, amazing love
I’ve found
Oh, amazing God
Oh, amazing God
Come down

I’m convinced and I am sure
I’m abandoned solely for

Oh, this amazing love
Oh, this amazing love
Oh, amazing love
That I’ve found

Oh, amazing God
Oh, amazing God
Oh, amazing God
Come down, come down

Oh, amazing love
Oh, amazing love
Oh, amazing love
Come down
Not my usual lyric but yet... it works for me. The second verse especially (in bold above).

So yeah... that's me... broken but strong. Its been an awesome weekend. I am knackered and off to bed.
