A Modern-day Song of Lament

Rend Collective has been writing really great songs lately. Right after Easter I linked one of their songs into a blog post and yesterday I heard another new song that I had to pass along- especially since we are currently in our summer sermon series in the Psalms.

The song, “Weep With Me,” is a song written in the form of the Psalms of Lament and puts lament into the language of today. It reminds us, as do the Psalms of Lament, that we can come to God in worship while bringing to God our questions, doubts, anger and sadness. As we poor out those things to God, to the God who cares and loves us, we are reminded of God’s unchanging character and we are reminded (in the words of the song) that “what was true in the light is still true in the dark.”
