When I first heard the song, I was on my own, and miserable. The narcissist I was in a “relationship” with put me through hell. I remember finding comfort in the words to Psalm 40. It was like a promise. Back then, I was living in a street called Pitt Street. It was there that the Lord turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me up out of the pit and got me onto solid ground. He brought me safe people and taught me how to have healthy relationships. I can’t sing His praises enough.
U2 think the same thing. The song ’40’ by U2 is taken from Psalm 40. Have you heard it?
Here’s a clip of them sing ‘Yahweh’ and ’40’. 40 comes on around the 4 minute mark. Enjoy.
U2 are not a Christian band, but here they are giving the King the glory and recognition He deserves.
