Our Newest Single - Wait Upon the Lord
Story Behind the Song:
We were asked to do special music for the service at our home church. Brad said, “Joanie, we need to write a song that will go with the pastor’s message.” We prayed on it and “Wait Upon the Lord” was the answer to our prayer.
The song, “Wait Upon the Lord”, is based on the famous scripture of Isaiah 40 which emphasizes the importance of putting our hope and trust in the Savior and waiting on Him to give us strength for each day.
This song is a little different than some of our earlier songs. “Wait Upon the Lord” has an Americana vibe to it with a ballad style and a catchy chorus that stays with the listener.
Primary Scripture Reference:
Have you not known? Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He does not faint or grow weary;
his understanding is unsearchable.
He gives power to the faint,
and to him who has no might he increases strength.
Even youths shall faint and be weary,
and young men shall fall exhausted;
but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint.
(Isaiah 40:28-31 ESV)
