Bible 7 & Bible 8: 22nd Journal Post

Watch this video and react to the words, the harmonies, and the meaning.  This is Noah Gunderson and his family.  They are a “I knew about them before they got big” band.  The family is often in Nashville.  Also, this song combines three songs that I enjoy.

Lyrics

Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

Stone cold broke in the middle of the winter, oh like a poor man’s son.
Stone cold broke in the middle of the winter, oh like a poor man’s son.

My father is a hard earned worker; my mother has a heart of gold.
I was never much younger but I feel twice as old.

Stone cold broke in the middle of the winter, oh like a poor man’s son.
Stone cold broke in the middle of the winter, oh like a poor man’s son.

But I’ve got money for food and a little bit of gasoline.
I’ve got plenty of time but I want everything now.
I don’t need no gold or silver,
Oh I only need a few new things.
Oh I would buy pearls for my lover,
Oh and a brand new set of guitar strings.

Stone cold broke in the middle of the winter, oh like a poor man’s son.
Stone cold broke in the middle of the winter, oh like a poor man’s son.

I feel a cold wind blowing;
Dark clouds form on the western sky.
I’ve got a feeling like knowing that everyone here will someday die.

Stone cold broke in the middle of the winter, oh like a poor man’s son.
Stone cold broke in the middle of the winter, oh like a poor man’s son.

But I see the bright stars shining high above Bethlehem town;
And I hear the chorus of angels singing out loud the sweetest sound.

Oh brothers, let’s go down.
Let’s go down, come on down.
Oh brothers, let’s go down,
Down in the river to pray.

Oh sisters, let’s go down.
Let’s go down, come on down.
Oh sisters, let’s go down,
Down in the river to pray.

Oh family, let’s go down.
Let’s go down, come on down.
Oh family, let’s go down,
Down in the river to pray.

I don’t need no gold or silver.
Oh I only need a few new things.
Oh I would buy pearls for my lover,
Or just a brand new set of guitar strings.
