Saturday Music: Joe Purdy, Wash Away

I've liked this song for awhile now, there's something lovely and dreamy about it. When I thought about the lyrics, it seemed so appropriate to post it today, the day between Good Friday and Easter. How do we even begin to fathom the washing away of sins that happens with this great miracle? How do we fathom Anyone giving up everything he has for us? That's a whole lot of love to take in and soak up.

Wash Away, by Joe Purdy

I got troubles oh, but not today
Cause they're gonna wash away
They're gonna wash away

And I have sins Lord, but not today
Cause they're gonna wash away
They're gonna wash away

And I had friends oh, but not today
Cause they're done washed away
They're done washed away

And oh, I've been cryin'
And oh, I've been cryin'
And oh, no more cryin'
No, no more cryin' here

We get along Lord, but not today
Cause we gonna wash away
We gonna wash away

And I got troubles oh, but not today
Cause they gonna wash away
This old heart gonna take them away
