Singing All The Way Home
What is a “song of ascents”? It’s a joyful song ancient Hebrews sang when they were going up to the mountain of the Lord – the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Here’s an example:
A Song of Ascents, of David.
I was glad when they said to me,
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
Lord our God,
Psalm 122 NASB) (
Songs of ascent are not just an ancient Israeli thing. Hebrews still make songs of ascent today, expressing in music their love for their Creator and desire to be in His presence in Israel, the Covenant Land He promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and where He placed His Name.
Want an example? Listen to the latest song by Will Spires, which he calls by the simple name, “Home.”
Will returns to The Remnant Road to share the story of “Home,” and to tell us about All That Remains, Vol. 1, the album he just released on CDBaby.com. What goes into his music? And what else is he doing in ministry for the Kingdom of our Messiah? Quite a lot! Join us and hear from the heart of a brother gifted not only with amazing talents, but with a desire to use them all for the glory of our God.
The Remnant Road, with co-hosts Al McCarn, Mike Clayton, Barry Phillips, and Hanoch Young is the Monday edition of the Hebrew Nation Morning Show. You can listen live at 11:00–1:00 EST, 8:00-10:00 PST at http://hebrewnationonline.com/, and on podcast at any time.
