Do you ever sing songs to yourself when things get really tough? Way back in 1971 a guy called Gavin Bryars came across a homeless man in London singing these lyrics:
‘Jesus’ blood never failed me yet / Never failed me yet / Jesus’ blood never failed me yet / There’s one thing I know / For he loves me so’
He was repeating them over and over to himself. Bryars recorded and looped it into a powerful 74-minute track.
So simple but it’s the heart of our faith! Jesus’ blood is the unfailing sign of God’s unfailing love for us.
Are things or people failing you? How about singing that homeless guy’s song a few times over to yourself this week?
