As a father shows compassion to his children, his children
So the Lord shows compassion, to those who fear him, fear him
For he knows, knows our frame He remembers we are dust

As for man, his days are like grass
He flourishes like a flower of the field
For the wind passes over it and it is gone
And its place knows it no more

But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting
On those who fear him
And his righteousness to children's children
To those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments
The Lord has established his throne in the heavens and his kingdom rules over all

Psalm 103v13-19 (ESV)

We had a weekend away with friends in February 2020 and thought a little about God's compassion. Psalm 103 is a key passage that talks about that. What beautiful, reassuring verses.

I came home and wanted to capture some of those thoughts in music. It was one of my favourite writing/recording experiences, about 20 minutes from initial idea to this take of guitar + vocals. By no means my usual experience, but great when it comes together like that. I sent the recording to John. The backing vocals (writing and recording) are his. Thanks John :-)

I'm pleased with the guitar part - the bassline with the thumb is a technique I haven't played with much or recorded before.
