Song of the Day: Jason Gray

I spoke with Jason on the phone today and when I told him that he was next in line for the song of the day, he pleaded that I not post his song after Goodgame’s Peanuts goodness. But I have no choice, I told him. I’m posting the songs of the day in alphabetical order according to artist, and Gray comes after Goodgame. Besides, though his great humility may tell him otherwise, Jason has nothing to worry about. His songs are honest and well-crafted, not to mention excellently produced. Check this one out, for example, sung with his musical compadre Sara Groves:

THE CUT Words: JG Music: JG & Matt Patrick Psalm 119:67-77

My heart is laid Under Your blade As you carve out Your image in me You cut to the core But still you want more As you carefully, tenderly ravage me

And You peel back the bark And tear me apart To get to the heart Of what matters most I’m cold and I’m scared As your love lays me bare But in the shaping of my soul They say the cut makes me whole

Mingling here Your blood and my tears As You whittle my kingdom away But I see that you suffer, too In making me new For the blade of Love, it cuts both ways

And You peel back the bark And tear me apart To get to the heart Of what matters most I’m cold and I’m scared As your love lays me bare But in the shaping of my soul They say the cut makes me whole

Hidden inside the grain Beneath the pride and pain Is the shape of the man You meant me to be Who with every cut now you try to set free

CHORUS… …With everyday You strip more away And You peel back the bark And tear me apart To get to the heart Of what matters most I’m cold and I’m scared As your love lays me bare But in the shaping of my soul The blade must take it’s toll So God give me strength to know That the cut makes me whole
