Understanding Ephphatha


This is a choral piece my daughter Angela and her friend Kathleen graciously recorded.  As part of the Alphabe-Thursday’s Letter U  Challenge. ♫♪ 
Ephphatha:  Be Opened
Based on Mark 7:34
1. Ephphatha, be opened
Thus says the Lord.
Deaf are commanded to hear with their soul.
Spirit, dwell within us.
Hearts closed and minds closed
We long to be filled
Only the spirit can open our will.
Spirit, dwell within us
Ephphatha, be opened.
Fill us O Lord
Ephphatha, be opened.
Open us Lord
2. Ephphatha, be opened.
Spirit’s reward.
Don’t vex the spirit.
Let Him have control.
Spirit, dwell within us.
Heart, mind, and soul
For the Lord we’re designed.
Only the spirit lets us see the divine.
Spirit, dwell within us
Ephphatha, be opened.
Fill us O Lord
Ephphatha, be opened.
We hear you Lord.

  2. Wonderful song! To answer your question - yes, I would go up again in a hot air balloon, but would bring my husband along for the ride and maybe some wine too :-)
