Deep calls to deep. For those who have ears to hear; this is God’s heart: forgiveness, salvation, remembering the forgotten, faithful living by the Word. Each returning “listen” and refrain encourages us to be alert to that persistent “still, small voice” of the Spirit.
This song emphasizes our need to listen well, and includes a call to ourselves and others to receive it as God’s truth. Such prayers and exhortations implement the convictions of Belgic Confession, Article 24 and Our World Belongs to God, paragraph 32: “The Bible is the Word of God, the record and tool of his redeeming work. It is the Word of truth, breath of God, fully reliable in leading us to know God and to walk with Jesus Christ in new life.”
