Dishwalla – Give

By Roger ~ January 7th, 2008. Filed under: Music, Religion.

Since I’ve written the Jeremy Camp review comparing his latest CD to my memories of Dishwalla, I’ve gotten a Dishwalla song stuck in my head. I like the soothing melody of this song, and apparently so do many of their fans. Also, the lyrics fit my beliefs. Let me show you.

Dishwalla: “I want to remain/A child with you forever…”

Matthew 18:1 – 4 “At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, ‘Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?’ He called a little child and had him stand among them. And he said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”

Dishwalla: “What would you give?/Oh what would you give?”

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son…”

Mark 15:39 “And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God.”

Romans 5:7 – 8 (NIV) “Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

What would you give?
