you came like a winter snow

6 04 2009

snow2

this post is completely unrelated to the fact that that it is snowing once again here in nashville, on april 6… one day after we had a beautiful 74 degree spring day… but i want to introduce you to audrey assad,  a writer and artist who i recently discovered.  her song “winter snow” has quickly become one of my favorite songs and i want to share it with you.

what a strikingly beautiful and intimate depiction of Christ coming to earth, our Emmanuel… God with us…

winter snow by audrey assad

could’ve come like a mighty storm / with all the strength of a hurricane

you could’ve come like a forrest fire / with the power of heaven in your flame

but you came like a winter snow / quiet and soft and slow

falling from the sky in the night / to the earth below

could’ve swept in like a tidal wave / or an ocean to ravish our hearts

you could have come through like a roaring flood / to wipe away the things we’ve scarred

but you came like a winter snow / quiet and soft and slow

falling from the sky in the night / to the earth below

no, your voice wasn’t in a bush burning

no, your voice wasn’t in a rushing wind

it was still, it was small, it was hidden

wow.

audrey is a client of my good friend kat at the brown book agency, and you can hear more of her beautiful music on her myspace.





u2’s boots just got sexier

u2_justice_210x

u2 has become widely synonymous with ‘justice’ (as in: just behavior or treatment), largely through the extensive work of frontman bono for the world’s impoverished, downtrodden and forgotten through vehicles such as the red campaign.

however, never have u2 and justice (as in: the uber-cool french electronic music duo) collided in this manner… and it’s deliciously ridiculous… or perhaps it’s ridiculously delicious.

this should be played at high volumes, preferably in an area where you are free to flail and cavort about or otherwise get your groove on extemporaneously.  i don’t know where you can buy this yes, but hopefully it will be commercially available somewhere very very soon.

u2 – get on your boots (justice remix)

mad, mad props to stereogum!
