Open up the doors...

Here is a flashback to the past.... we haven't done this song in church for quite a while, but I've been thinking lately about the lyrics to the song, "Did You Feel The Mountains Tremble".  This song was written and performed in 1995 by a band called The Cutting Edge which later became known as Delirious?. Over the years this song has been performed by many artists from Sonicflood to Chris Tomlin to Upper Room to Dave Redmon, just to name a few.

The words of this song are just as relevant today as they were 25 years ago. As I watch the news reports about protesters assembling to make there voices heard, I can't help but think that we as Christians have the same opportunity. The timing is appropriate as we once again open the doors to our churches and all work together to make the world a better place. Maybe its time to throw open the doors and let the music play.
Do you feel the darkness tremble
When all the saints join in one song
And all the streams flow as one river
To wash away our brokenness 
Open up the doors and let the music play
Let the streets resound with singing
Songs that bring Your hope
Songs that bring Your joy
Dancers who dance upon injustice 
And here we see that, God, You're moving
A time of jubilee is coming
When young and old return to Jesus
Fling wide, you heavenly gates
Prepare the way of the risen Lord
And here is a flashback video of Delirious?...
