O Jesus Friend Unfailing

Postby Yvonne » Tue Sep 08, 2009 1:03 pm

Hello everyone :) !

I couldn't find a topic about the song O Jesus Friend Unfailing, so I though I 'd start one. If there is one already that I overlooked I apologize.

I discovered this wonderful song this weekend thanks to the Northern Skyline Newsletter (thank you so much, people of NS :D ). They gave a link to Purashop where you can download this song and I did. I haven't been so impressed with a song for a long time. This song is beautiful beyond words. It gives me goosebumps and tears in my eyes.

It is a live recording of Moya with a choir and it is really breathtaking. It makes me hope for another Christian Moya album even more! I love just about all of Moya's works, but her Christian works always touch me on a deeper level. This song has become one of my all time favourite songs within just a few days.

Anyway, the song is available as an MP3 only (as far as I know). It is on Focusfest 2001, the Sound of Grace. I don't know if Moya is on any of the other songs too, may be someone else knows, but this one is really worth buying!

I just wanted to share it with you all :D !

Lots of Love,

Yvonne

The song is gorgeous!! It uses the tune from 'Raglan Road', an Irish song by Patrick Kavanagh. The tune is called 'Fáinne Geal an Lae', which means 'The Dawning Of The Day' (literally, the Bright Circle of the Day). I'd love to hear this live :)
