Misty Edwards – Light Of Your Face lyrics

O Lord bless me and keep me cause Your face to shine on me
Lord be gracious lift the light of Your countenance give me peace

I live only to see your face so shine on me

Let the light of Your face shine down on my heart and let me feel it

    The song is based on Numbers 6:24 the Levitical blessing given to Moses from God. It is a beautiful song. The wording, depending on bible version is, "The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace." It is a beautiful song. Note the complex drumming on some versions where even Chris helps out with percussion. Also note how Jeffrey has headphones at the start to keep time as the guitar part is so slow with little reference for time keeping from other instruments for the first few bars. We play mostly our own material but this song is special to me and I love to get lost in the music and praise when I play this. The chords for the start are F(or F2), C, G, Gsus4, Am - for Gsus4 just use your spare finger to fret the C note above the finger you already have on the A string - it just adds a little mood to the chord progression. The rest of the melody is easy, but the skill is in the timing and the tone. Love Jay - guitarist Superfluity.

    In my opinion and how I see this song, light of your face means for god to just smile upon us and let us know he did because we live for his glory only and to pray and magnify him to his people. We show the way of christ for he is the way the truth and the life. And this song really just explains how we feel towards him because we want to feel his presence and feel his love and embrace. You can get a whole lot of meaning just through these couple of lyrics, this song is very meaningful.
