There are a number of versions online of a later Maranatha! Music recording of this song, but I have always felt nothing is as raw and heartfelt as this particular version.
Give ear to my words, O Lord
Consider my mediation
Hearken onto the voice of my cry
My King and my God
For unto Thee will I pray
My voice shalt Thou hear in the morning
O Lord, in the morning
Will I direct my prayer
Onto Thee and will look up.
Here are some other notes about the song from the description and comments in a different YouTube video of it:
The way I heard it Big Bill was asleep and woke with a melody to King David’s words in Psalm 5. A week or two later Bill went to heaven after a massive heart attack. He never got to hear this final recording. Thank you Big Bill and David and God that we have been given this beautiful melody from a dream.
A week later, the rest of the band (The Road Home) and various backing singers from the Calvary Chapel/Maranatha music community, gathered in the studio and completed the recording, which was first released on the Album “Maranatha 5″ .
