(Lyrics) Psalm 107 Lord’s Unfailing Love Song Versions 1to 5
Words and Music by Leslie aka Jesse Hughes ©
(Adapted from Psalm 107)

Give thanks to the Lord , for he is good; his love endures forever.
Let the redeemed of the Lord say this — those he redeemed from the hand of the foe
Those he gathered from the lands, from east and west, from north and south

Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love
and his wonderful deeds for men
For he satisfies the thirsty
And fills the hungry with good things
For he breaks down gates of bronze
And cuts through bars of iron
Let them sacrifice thank offerings
And tell of his works with songs of joy
Let them exalt him in the assembly of the people
And praise him in the council of the elders

Some wandered in desert wastelands
Finding no way to a city where they could settle
They were hungry and thirsty
And their lives ebbed away
Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble
And he delivered them from their distress
He led them by a straight way
To a city where they could settle

Some sat in darkness and the deepest gloom
Prisoners suffering in iron chains
For they had rebelled against the words of God
And despised the counsel of the Most High
So he subjected them to bitter labor
They stumbled, and there was no one to help.
Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble
And he saved them from their distress
He brought them out of darkness and the deepest gloom
And broke away their chains

Some became fools through their rebellious ways
And suffered affliction because of their iniquities
They loathed all food
And drew near the gates of death
Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble
And he saved them from their distress
He sent forth his word and healed them
He rescued them from the grave
Others went out on the sea in ships;
They were merchants on the mighty waters
They saw the works of the Lord
His wonderful deeds in the deep
For he spoke and stirred up a tempest
That lifted high the waves
They mounted up to the heavens and went down to the depths
In their peril their courage melted away
They reeled and staggered like drunken men
They were at their wits' end
Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble
And he brought them out of their distress
He stilled the storm to a whisper
The waves of the sea were hushed
They were glad when it grew calm
And he guided them to their desired haven

He turned rivers into a desert
Flowing springs into thirsty ground
And fruitful land into a salt waste
Because of the wickedness of those who lived there
He turned the desert into pools of water
And the parched ground into flowing springs
There he brought the hungry to live
And they founded a city where they could settle
They sowed fields and planted vineyards
That yielded a fruitful harvest
He blessed them, and their numbers greatly increased
And he did not let their herds diminish
Then their numbers decreased, and they were humbled
By oppression, calamity and sorrow
He who pours contempt on nobles
Made them wander in a trackless waste
But he lifted the needy out of their affliction
And increased their families like flocks
The upright see and rejoice
But all the wicked shut their mouths
Whoever is wise, let him heed these things
And consider the great love of the Lord

I am a New Order, New Age and New Covenant Gospel Rock and Roller preaching the Gospel to the world in the tradition of Dylan and Springsteen. My songs metaphorically interpret the Bible and book of Revelation, helping to shine a light upon Bob Dylan’s lyrical clues. I serve the Spirit of the Lord, and dedicate my eternal Star to serving my King the Holy Spirit of Truth (Isaiah chapter 11 and 2 Corinthians 3:17) and proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, the day of God’s Salvation and the New Covenant (Luke 4:18-19, Isaiah chapter 61, 2 Corinthians 6:1-2, Jeremiah 31:31-34, Hebrews 8:7-13) by measuring the temple, unsealing the scroll in the book of Revelation and preaching the true metaphoric interpretation of the Gospel to the world inspired by Mt 13:35 and Ps 78:2 that states “I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world." Visit my home pages to view my complete lyrics, Gospel references, notes and sketches. Thank-you to all my friends who visit my pages, listen to my songs, and read my notes.

Gospel references for these songs and spoken words are the same as my recent song and spoken word posts:
(Please note also that a Jew and Israelite in a metaphoric interpretation of the Gospel is not a person of Jewish heritage, it is a metaphor for a part of all of us that is a Jew within and another part of us that is a Gentile within -see Romans 2:28-29- and how these two parts become one in Ephesians 2:14-22, Ezekiel 37:15-17 and Romans 3:27-31, also how there are those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars- see Revelations 3:9)
