Ok, enough all know that I'm a huge fan of Derek Webb and his deep, thoughtful musical lyrics (which currently have in in trouble with his record label). The song, Beloved, is by far my favorite song written and sung by him (Wedding Dress runs a close second).

I think that there's a video clip of any Derek Webb song on YouTube EXCEPT for Beloved. Ugh. However, this guy does a pretty good job of singing it.

Think as you listen and read. Be reminded of God's love for His people.


Beloved these are dangerous times
because you are weightless like a leaf from the vine
and the wind has blown you all over town
because there is nothing holding you to the ground

so now you would rather be
a slave again than free from the law

beloved listen to me
don’t believe all that you see
and don’t you ever let anyone tell you
that there’s anything that you need
but me

beloved these are perilous days
when your culture is so set in it’s ways
that you will listen to salesmen and thieves
preaching other than the truth you’ve received

because they are telling lies
for they cannot circumcise your hearts

beloved there is nothing more
no more blessings and no more rewards
than the treasure of my body and blood
given freely to all daughters and sons
