Ya Allah, We Are Bonded Together!

Hebrews13_5

Dear Muslim Friends,

I know that music is not part of worship for you as Muslims, but for us as Christians, it is more than just permissible, it is commanded. Why? Because it glorifies God and it changes us.

This morning I was praying and listening to songs of worship to Almighty God. I heard again an old song that made my cry – not in sadness, but in joy. It is a song that expresses my love for God – because of His overwhelming, incomprehensible, never ending, unconditional love for me! I cry out, “O God, we are bonded together!” (“Ya Allah” – in Arabic يا ألله – literally meaning “O God”)

This song – “Bonded Together” – speaks of incredible closeness to God. It speaks of incredible relationship with Him.

Oh, how I love God! How I praise Him today! You see, my earthly father left my mother, my sister, and. . .me. But God? He has promised to never leave me. Never!

Psalm-27.10-590x589

I serve Him because I love Him. There is no one like Him!

We are truly. . .bonded together.

This. . .is His unbreakable promise.

My dear Muslim friends, do you know the overwhelming, incomprehensible, never ending, unconditional love of God for you? If not, please ask Him to show you more clearly who He is and what He has done to prove His love . . .for you! (Personally, I see the love of God for me – and for all humanity – in Isa al Masih. Jesus. I wrote about God’s sacrificial love through Jesus here: http://www.ilovemuslims.net/2015/04/jesus-you-didnt-have-to-but-you-did-2/).

I hope you will listen to this song of love and truly be able to say:

“Ya Allah, we are bonded together!”

“Bonded Together” – by Twila Paris

Like tightly woven garment, like a metal alloy,
We are put together in the strongest way.
With a common bond to join us that they cannot destroy
We are held together in the longest way.

Chorus:
And we could not be pulled apart
Without it tearing out a heart.
Bonded together,
You are my Father forever.
You will never leave me. Never! Never!
We are bonded together.

There is never space between us for a separation.
We are put together in the tightest way.
And a holy fusion causes this amalgamation.
We are held together in the brightest way.

Chorus:
We could not be pulled apart
Without it tearing out a heart.
Bonded together,
I am your servant forever. Forever!
I will never leave you, I will never leave you. Never!
We are bonded together.

You cling to me. I cling to you.
You cling to me. I am clinging too.
I am clinging too.

Chorus:
Bonded together,
You are my Father forever. Forever!
You will never leave me. You will never, ever leave me. Never!
We are bonded together.
I am your servant forever. Forever!
I will never leave you. I will never leave you. Never!
We are bonded together.

Bonded together.
Bonded together.
Bonded together.

  1. Eyes are at rest,
    The stars are setting
    Hushed are the stirrings of birds in their nests
    Of monsters in the sea

    You are the Just who knows no change
    The balance that can never swerve
    The eternal that never passes away

    The doors of the kings are bolted now and guarded by soldiers
    Your door is open to all who call upon you

    My Lord, each love is now alone with their beloved
    and I am alone with you

    —-Rabia al Basri
