Wednesday Selah: Lord Remind Me by Jon and Valerie Guerra

 Lord, remind me.That the shepherds heard the angels break the silence in th

I first heard Jon Guerra’s amazing music at the beginning of November when I heard him at Matt Maher’s Saints and Sinners tour. I loved his music and his sense of humor when I saw him in concert so I was thrilled to see he released a Christmas album with his wife, Valerie. The whole album is well worth a listen, but Lord Remind Me stopped me in my tracks, hearing it as I did just days after the terrorist attack in San Bernardino.

I couldn’t find the lyrics online so I listened to the song a few times. There’s a line or two that I’m not sure about so I put them in bold. Enjoy reading them while you listen to the beautiful song below.

When children play on Christmas day and snow is flung
When I feel I haven’t had a friend since I was young
When I’m feeling tired of myself and everyone
Lord, remind me.
Lord, remind me.

That the shepherds heard the angels break the silence in the field.
That the wise men found the baby and they could not help but kneel.
That the one who heard our weeping came a child in a manger sleeping.
Lord remind me
Cause it’s Christmas and I want to remember

When I hear the news and hear another war’s begun
And I wonder if God’s on the side of either one.
I hear bullet, nail or handcuff you bore all of them.
And in the light my heart’s as dark as anyone’s
Lord, remind me.
Lord, remind me.

That the shepherds heard the angels break the silence in the field.
That the wise men found the baby and they could not help but kneel.
That the one who heard our weeping came a child in a manger sleeping.
Lord, remind me.
Cause it’s Christmas and I want to remember

Tell me who loves me
Tell me who wants me
Tell me the story like I’ve never heard before
And I’ll sing like the angels sing
With my whole heart singing
To him who’s worth a thousand songs of love.

Glory in the highest.
Glory in the lowest.
Glory, that shines when nothing seems to shine at all.

Glory in the highest.
Glory in the lowest.
Glory, Immanuel.

Glory in the highest.
Glory in the lowest.
Glory, Immanuel.
Immanuel.

Lord, remind me.
Lord, remind me.

That the paralytic rose and stood up proud on his own feet.
That the thief who hung beside you is with you now and waits for me.
That the cry of faith so simple is the greatest song in heaven’s temple.
Lord, remind me.
Cause it’s Christmas
And I want to remember

This is post in the ongoing Wednesday Selah series. After diving back into the work week on Monday and racing through all the tasks that Tuesday brings, let’s take a pause on Wednesday and lift up the name of the only One who matters – Jesus. Find out more about the word, selah, and its use in the Psalms here.
