A video of For My Ashes by Duke Divinity students from 2008.

Through its minor chords and rising melody this song captures the wonderful state of being a Christian. The verbs are present tense, reminding us that this transformation can be a daily occurrence. As with all great worship songs, For My Ashes functions as a sermon on the moment by moment transference of our brokenness for the forgiveness and mercy of Christ.

The song also provides opportunities of adoration and thanksgiving to our Lord, the Messiah that comes for us each and every instance when we need him, for each and every day of our lives. Truly, he is so good.

 

For my ashes You give me beauty
For my mourning You give me joy
For my tears, Lord, You give me kisses
Oh, yeah, that`s how good You are
Oh, yeah, that`s how good You are
Gracious and Compassionate
You are so good, You are so good
Slow to anger, rich in love
You are so good, You are so good
