a morning stroll
to dwell as You dwelt

much needed medicine

DSC01710I love listening to music-lots of different kinds-and in my musical wanderings I recently came across a guy named John Mark McMillan.  Wow.  (Yeah, I know, he's been around awhile . . .)  I like his music, his lyrics and his style.  McMillan's song, Skeleton Bones, is a cool one (see video below).  In the song he speaks about our hearts, he refers to Ezekiel 37 where God breathes life into a valley of dry bones (skeletons) and throughout the song he points us to God-the true source of hope, joy, love and life.

Skeleton Bones comes from the album, The Medicine.

I needed this song.  Maybe you do too.  I have included the song/video and the lyrics below.  Enjoy.


Peel back our ribs again
And stand inside of our chest
We just want to love you
We just want to love you yeah

Peel back the veil a time
Let us see you with our naked eyes
We just want to love you
We just want to love you yeah

Skeleton bones stand at the sound
Of eternity on
The lips of the found
Grave stones roll
to the rhythm of the sound of you

Skeleton bones stand at the sound
Of eternity on
The lips of the found
Yeah so separate those doors
Let the sun of resurrection in

Oh let us
Adore the son of glory
Dressed in love
Open up your gates
Before him
Crown him
Stand him up

We want your blood to flow inside our body and
We want your wind inside our lungs
We just want to love you
We just want to love you yeah

Skeleton bones stand at the sound
Of eternity on
The lips of the found
Grave stones roll
to the rhythm of the sound of you
Skeleton bones stand at the sound
Of eternity on
The lips of the found
Yeah so separate those doors
Let the sun of resurrection in

Oh let us
Adore the son of glory
Dressed in love
Open up your gates
Before him
Crown him
Stand him up

Everything that Breaths
Yeah
