O The Deep Love of God

The Lord led several of us this year to begin getting more involved with a local church here in Chicago, and it has been precious getting to know the families at Marquette Manor Baptist Church. They invited Jonathan and I to sing in the choir, and Esther has joined the orchestra.

Esther was asked to play for the offertory on October 12, and she had the brilliant idea (she is always full of brilliant ideas) to put together a violin/piano duet of “O the Deep, Deep, Love of Jesus.” One day as we were singing “The Love of God” in church, she was struck with the thought, “I wonder if we could arrange these two songs together!”

Whether in a home fellowship, or a small country church back home in West Virginia, or a gathering of believers in the Chicago suburbs, it is marvelous to see the deep love of God that binds His body together. (1 Cor. 12:12-27)

    What a great arrangement o for Piano and Violin. I really liked listening to it. What a blessing that you’re able to create such beautiful music together, for Christ’s glory!

    The love of God is incredible and I felt this song portrayed that well. Thank you, Daniel, for the beautiful arranging you did to make His praise glorious.
    It is such a blessing to worship with this group of Bible-believing Christians!

    Wow, so awesome! You are so talented, and I LOVE when one is able to combine songs so well! I recently did one too; this new song by Rend Collective called My Lighthouse, and I skipped the bridge part and put in the chorus of Jesus is the Lighthouse; same theme, with songs of different generations. It’s a great tool to bring generations together, and there are several other combo-songs being done. So glad you’re enjoying new fellowship and learning new ways to encourage each other. Praise God!

    This does make His praise glorious. It is another wonderful illustration of how music is it’s own language apart from words. What an opportunity to testify to God’s wonder and glory. I am so glad that the love of God is “greater far”! In West Virginia it is the season for homecomings and revivals now. Mom and David had a good time at our revival last week, and we’re looking forward to singing in a town called Sardis this week. The day rapidly approaches when those from many many churches will sing in one accord!
