David Wesley presents a virtual choir singing ‘You Are My Anchor’ (The Father’s Embrace) by Stuart Townend.
‘You Are My Anchor’ is based on Psalm 27, which is a cry and declaration of belief in the greatness of God and trust in the protection He provides.
The song is brought alive by a virtual choir consisting of 150 singers and ASL interpreters from 37 countries.
On his official Youtube channel, he writes that they had only 7 days to learn, record, and upload their performance and he had less than 2 weeks to edit everything together.
You are my anchor,
My light and my salvation.
You are my refuge,
My heart will not fear.
Though my foes surround me on every hand,
They will stumble and fall
While in grace I stand.
In my day of trouble,
You hide me and set me above
To sing this song of love:
“This is the first of three smaller (“pop-up”) projects to finish off 2020. Instrumental accompaniment provided by me – just a simple arrangement representing how I might lead this song with a congregation.”
One thing I will ask of You, this will I pray:
To dwell in Your house, O Lord, every day;
To gaze upon Your lovely face,
And rest in the Father’s embrace.
This is a beautiful presentation of Stuart Townend’s ‘You Are My Anchor’ and is especially relevant to these days when we need the Father’s embrace more than ever.
