Song Squawk – All Over Me

In the mid nineties, I had a little red Buick and a big ol’ bass box in the trunk, and would listen to “Christian Rock”, cranked to 11.

(What did you say?  Huh?  Can  you say that again, I didn’t hear you….)

I have gotten away from that genre for many reasons, the least of which may be a loss of hearing, but some songs have stuck with me over the decades.

The artist’s I listened to sought to reflect Scriptural teaching for the most part. They ranged from “preaching” pop culture religion to significant theological teaching. As I listened to the lyrics, I found some to be quite challenging.

To be honest, I listened because I could justify the rock beat with “sanctified lyrics”.

Occassionaly I will post a song, supply the lyrics and make a comment or two. If you decide to listen to the tune, turn the speaker down unless you are already deaf. Some of the songs tend to have a certain “volume” about them!


This post will consider the song

All over Me – by The Benjamin Gate

This group was from South Africa and had a lady front woman (Adrienne “Adie” Camp), with a great voice. It was a fun group, but like I mentioned with X-Sinner, these guys were having fun with thier music. There seemed to be a generality about this song, but nevertheless, it was catchy and I tended to find I came back to it occasionally.

Wave come, wave fall
Cast me on your broken shore
Sun come, sun fall
Cast me on your love so warm

Take a listen!

All over Me – by The Benjamin Gate

All over Me – by The Benjamin Gate

Wave come, wave fall
Cast me on your broken shore
Sun come, sun fall
Cast me on your love so warm

Jesus’ love is
Jesus’ love is

All over me, all over me
Your love is all over me
All over me, all over me
Your love is . . .Christ come, Christ crawl
Nailed to a cross so tall
All come, all fall
All walk with hearts so torn

Jesus’ love is
Jesus’ love is

All over me, all over me
Your love is all over me
All over me, all over me
Your love is . . .

Let me know what you think of the lyrics, and of the tunes!
