With yesterday’s post still fresh on my mind, I was listening to The Best of Van Morrison last night as I was putting a serious dent in a painting project at home.  I hadn’t listened to that particular cd in quite a while, and the song “Full Force Gale” really jumped out at me.  I have always liked the song, but it took on additional meaning as I considered God’s work in my life.  With both lyrics and music composed by Morrison, the song first appeared on his 1979 album Into the Music. 

It’s a joyful song, filled with gladness and gratitude, and I just felt like sharing it.  You can click on the title below for the audio.  

 Full Force Gale

Like a full force gale, I was lifted up again
I was lifted up again by the Lord

No matter where I roam
I will find my way back home
I will always return to the Lord

In the gentle evening breeze
By the whispering shady trees
I will find my sanctuary in the Lord

I was headed for a fall
Then I saw the writing on the wall

Like a full force gale, I was lifted up again
I was lifted up again by the Lord
