The Cost

Day 6

Recently I have fallen in love with music from the group Rend Collective Experiment. I love their sound, their lyrics and they are Irish.

This is a YouTube video of a song that I found myself putting on repeat. Well last week it was on repeat… this week I’ve reconsidered how much I sing it because obviously it should be true but maybe I don’t really hold quite so much conviction when faced with difficulties. But you have to love the stump fiddle. I think I should learn to play one!

Since it is a live video and the sound is a bit distorted, here are the lyrics:

The Cost by Rend Collective Experiment
Album: Homemade Worship by Handmade People

I’m saying yes to You
And no to my desires
I’ll leave myself behind
And follow You

I’ll walk the narrow road
’cause it leads me to You
I’ll fall but grace
Will pick me up again

I’ve counted up the cost
Oh I’ve counted up the cost
Yes I’ve counted up the cost
And You are worth it

I do not need safety
As much as I need You
You’re dangerous
But Lord You’re beautiful

I’ll chase You through the pain
I’ll carry my cross
’cause real love
Is not afraid to bleed

Take my all
Take my everything

I’ve counted up the cost
And You’re worth everything
