You Who Flung Stars…

An oldie, and yes, the ellipsis is part of the title. Pretentious? Quite possibly.

This was the first song I wrote for my band at Northwest Church; I wrote it in 2008 and we recorded it as a band in the November of that year. I wanted to encapsulate the Bible and the Gospel in a song, “from Genesis to Revelation” (as Junior Murvin famously sang); I can’t remember where the inspiration came from for the music.

We have used this song in both the recorded arrangement below and also a quieter down tempo version we did for Christmas 2010. It seemed to work quite well either way.
