New Song Spotlight: In Feast or Fallow

During this time of crisis I keep coming back to “In Feast or Fallow” (Click for full band version) by Sandra McCracken, so I figured it’s time to share! Even though it’s tough to introduce a new song without all of us gathered to learn it together, I think it’s worth it. It has a realistic view of real life in a fallen world, the centrality of the gospel in trials, and exemplifies trust in God’s provision. I love the refrain, “Whatever we comes we shall endure!”. Here’s the lyrics…

Verse 1
When the fields are dry, and the winter is long
Blessed are the meek, the hungry, the poor
When my soul is downcast, and my voice has no song
For mercy, for comfort, I wait on the Lord

Chorus
In the harvest feast or the fallow ground,
My certain hope is in Jesus found
My lot, my cup, my portion sure
Whatever comes, we shall endure
Whatever comes, we shall endure

Verse 2
On a cross of wood, His blood was outpoured
He Rose from the ground, like a bird to the sky
Bringing peace to our violence, and crushing death’s door
Our Maker incarnate, our God who provides.

Chorus

Bridge
O come, Emmanuel
Come, o come, Emmanuel

Verse 3
When the earth beneath me crumbles and quakes
Not a sparrow falls, nor a hair from my head
Without His hand to guide me, my shield and my strength
In joy or in sorrow, in life or in death

Chorus
