Weekly music

Something that is a huge part of my life is music. Ever since I remember I have always had music in my life in some form. I used to have a pretty extensive collection of LP’s and singles but nowadays I tend to stick to downloads and streaming.

Each week I want to post one piece of music that has been a part of me during that week. It might be something I heard this week for the first time or it might be an old favourite that I have had going around in my head this week.

As an introduction to this series and as a bonus post I’d like to kick off with this song from Elevation worship:

This is a powerful song that seems to have become an important song during the stressful times globally that Covid-19 has caused.

The songs writers, Kari Jobe, Cody Carnes and Steven Furtick say they wrote it in a writing session on 27th February 2020. The video above was the song’s first public performance at Elevation church’s Sunday service on 1st March 2020

To date there are at least 24 cover versions that have been released: here is a small selection of them:

Here are the song’s lyrics:
