God in Music

We heard from three musicians, from three disciplines how music has effected them and their understanding of God.

Philip Bergstrom - Indie Rock Songwriter

Psalm 49

1 Hear this, all you peoples;
listen, all who inhabit the world,
2 both low and high,[a]
rich and poor together.
3 My mouth speaks wisdom;
my heart’s meditation brings understanding.
4 I turn my ear to a proverb;
I explain my riddle with a lyre.

5 Why should I fear in times of trouble?
The iniquity of my foes surrounds me.
6 They trust in their wealth
and boast of their abundant riches.
7 Yet these cannot redeem a person[b]
or pay his ransom to God—
8 since the price of redeeming him is too costly,
one should forever stop trying[c]
9 so that he may live forever
and not see the Pit.

10 For one can see that wise men die;
foolish and stupid men also pass away.
