New Book



After lunch on a Sunday afternoon, while waiting for practice time, we went to G-sounds, I was reluctant to G-sounds since I don't earn a lot and Christian stuff are mostly overpriced in Malaysia and they don't update regularly.

This time round, they were having fun reading the bible/book called the word on the street, I though Hey that's a cool book, it was like Eugene Peterson's The Message when I first read it. and the price weren't that high it cost like RM30. So me Aaron and Chin Hoe bought the book. Well. later I found out that it wasn't a full bible, just bits and pieces from different famous stories and paragraphs like it. It is written for the youth of today (how can we lose to the gossip girls?).

Anyway this is not a bible (as the author puts it) It is an introduction to the bible, bringing people back to read the bible (after being polluted by sweet veli high). Here's Psalms 23... enjoy

Psalms 23

You're my guide and my guard, my minder, my mentor
What more do I need? What's better at the centre?
You sit me down, put my best CD on,
And my soul remembers who I am again

You're with me; you comfort me
And you hold my swaying heart - so soft so strong
You're with me; You comfort me
You stop them tearing apart - I fear no wrong
You show me where to go, without telling me;
You set a value on my life, without selling me;
You're with me; You comfort me

You call me to the streets; You show me such good things,
Right things with no hidden strings
Just your name on, and its game on
Your great repute, like a distant flute it comforts me

I crawl through the alley of the shadow of cancer;
I know you know the answer, and the battle won't rattle me,
You're around, and I've found there's something about your empathy,
Your symphony of sympathy, that comforts me.

You lay a table; You site me down,
My rivals arrive from the greatest to the least,
But my cup's kept full, and my head's held high,
as You boast about me, Your least priest,
And make them toast me right through the feast.
Boy does it comfort me!

I know that your good, your best your love and passion
will stalk me, steer me stand alongside me,
outlast every fad and fashion, through eternity,
For I am going to live with you
see heaven's great views from my own cosmic mews
No lease to renew, no terms to review, no one else to view,
Just me and you... me and you... me and you
right through, to the end of time.
