Truly Golden

A late Friday treat for you all, Wovenhand’s “Truly Golden” live in Norway (2007).

Truly Golden by Wovenhand

Another tune that sets such beautiful melodies behind a haze or hum, much like “Chest of Drawers.”  Written by Peter van Laerhoven, this song dwells on the broad brush strokes of God’s love and how me relate to it.  A love that encourages and chastises its benefactors.  A reminder that love is more than sentimentality; it is purposeful, intentional, reconciling, and redemptive.  Though sometimes by water and sometimes by fire, God will bring his own to Himself.
