Unusual Music 2 – Misty Edwards – The Harlot

YOU MUST LISTEN TO THIS VERY UPLIFTING SONG TO THE END.

This song is based on  John 7:53-8:11- the story of Jesus forgiving the  Harlot (the woman caught in adultery). You can read a commentary on it here at Bible Gateway. And you can listen to a John Piper sermon here.It is a very poetic song of redemption of the bride of Christ. It has an unusual subject, and is an unusual title for a song. The other thing that is very unusual is the length of the song – 27 minutes (Believe me the time goes pretty fast if you identify with and meditate on the fact that we were all the harlot until the Lamb of God took away the sins of the world-mine and yours. Misty Edwards sings at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City, Missouri. Most of her songs are spontaneous songs. This means she just sings them and plays the piano without composing them beforehand. Here’s a little bit about IHOP-

One Thing 2011 Conference

You can watch the prayer room live, 24/7 on God TV.  God TV Schedule on Locate TV For those who don’t get the Christian channel, watching online may be the only way to tune in, but even those who get the channel can still watch IHOP prayer room live online.  Just click here to access the site.  IHOP Prayer Room on God TV. What Is the Prayer Room?

Central to the work of the missions base is our 24/7 prayer room, inspired by David’s tabernacle (1 Chr. 23:525:7), where 288 singers and 4,000 musicians were employed as their full-time occupation to minister to the Lord and serve the community. The 24/7 schedule is divided into twelve two-hour worship-based prayer meetings a day.

Scripture teaches that night-and-day prayer is crucial for the fullness of God’s power and purpose to be released (Lk. 18:7–8Isa. 62:6–7). We are offering Jesus unceasing adoration, while contending for justice and the power of the Holy Spirit to be manifest and bring transformation in every sphere of society.

Lyrics here- THE HARLOT

I’m broken,I’m wounded, I’m wretched and ashamed
and the harlot is like a chain around my neck, it’s my name

she sings the song of humanity , the song of you, the song of me
(they drag her through the city square, dragging her by her hair
she’s kicking screaming and fighting ) X 2

I’m broken, I’m wounded, I’m angry and afraid
and the harlot is like a chain around my neck, it’s my name X2

she’s faced down, this tangled hair every where, as she’s crying in the dust,
as the dust turns to mudd on her face
this tangled hair every where as she’s crying in the dust
face down. Open up, o open up, o ground beneath me
how long does it take to stone one harlot down
i know the laws well as they do and i’m guilty, guilty
an adulterer, and i know, i know O will this day never end
how long does it take to stone one harlot

I’m broken, I’m wounded, I’m wretched and ashamed
and the harlot is like a chain around my neck, it’s my name
(as a congregation of the righteous gather round
they are ready to stone her down ) X2

and someone from that frenzy marches shouts out
let’s take her to the teacher,
let’s test him and see what he will say
in an eruption of aggreementas they are taking her by her hair
they drag her through the city square
they are dragging her by her hair
she gave up the fight like a *****
they drag her through the city square
dragging her by her hair, she’s faced down

I’m broken, I’m wounded, I’m angry and afraid
and the harlot, is like a chain around my neck, it’s my name
it’s who i am,open up, o open up, o ground beneath me,
it wasn’t supposed to end this way but i am guilty
and i know it, i’ve got so many plans so much to dobut
now it’s too late, guilty and i know it
face down
-what’s he doing-
as a congregation of the righteous gather round
they are ready to stone her down,they throw her at the feet of a teacher
dare i look up ?surely they have brought me here to mock me
this tangled hair every where as she’s crying in the dust
as the dust turns to mudd on her face
this tangled hair everywhere she’s faced down in the dust
in the muddand there is a hush, and a congregation
-what’s he doing-time stands still-

as the court of heaven was seated
there is a great throne of judgement
and there is the harlot and she is me face down
looking through the tangled hair and the mudd in my eyes
i raise my gaze only to realize
i am surrounded by beauty that will never be mine
as regret like a wave came crushing over me
if i had only known that such beauty was available
if i had only known but now it’s too late

and the accuser of the brethren was pacing back and forth
and back and forth and to and through
has he spilt out his words, he was going back and forth and back and forth
he was listing off my sins one by one
and the thing was he was telling the truth
guilty guilty guilty guilty
and the great count of witnesses
and the angels o the angels looked on the scene
as the accuser of the brethren was going back and forth
glee in his eye guilty guilty guilty guilty
and resound to the corridor of eternity in time like a thunder in my soul
he was right i was guilty guilty to eternal damnation
for my soula nd there was nothing i could, nothing i could do,
face down, face down, couldn’t even open my eyes,
the regret was so strong there’s a hand on my shoulder,
a hand on my shoulder and i hear a voice, like music in my ear
dare i look up ? , i couldn’t lift my eyes
but all i saw that beautiful feet, and i hered that voice like music,
music to my soul, he said , Father I desire that she will be with me where i am,
show her my glory Father I desire this one,
this one she is mine, she is mine , she is mine
He was praying for my soul , he was pleading for my behalf
he was praying for me, i couldn’t comprehend it,
i couldn’t understand what was going on
Father I desire that everything that’s mine would be hers
and everything that’s hers would be mine
Father Father I desire this one, this one,
she’s mine she’s mine she’s mine
and all the heaven gasp in belief and i opened up my eyes
and i watched in wonder, this beautiful one stood to his feet
I looked up and there was a great trone and there was the father
and he had a cup of wrath with my name on it
it had my name on it and i was just about to rise to drink
guilty guilty guilty, but i watched in unbelief this beautiful one,
he walked on to his fatherand drank of the cup
and before i knew what was going on he drank of the cup
he drank of the cup, he drank of the cup of the father’s wrath
he drank of the cup of the marriage wine
he drank of the cup with my name on it
he drank of the cup and all the blood..
i jumped to my feet and i ran over to him and it was too late
i tried to stop him but i didn’t know it was too late
and all the blood all the blood , and all the blood
it should have been me, and i was weeping and weeping
and i ran over forgetting where i wasand i fell down face,
down down and o pleased Father crush him, but it was too late ,
i began to plead it should have been me ,
it should have been me but it was too late,
why did he do it but it was too late and all the blood X4i
was weeping, weeping and crying it should have been me,
it should have been me face down, why did he do it ? X2
it should have been mewas weeping and weeping,
why did he gave his life, all the bloodwas weeping and weeping
and i heard a whisper like music”what’s yours is mine and what’s mine is yours”
i looked to the left, i looked to the right,
and i was on a sea of glace like crystal
there was a great great congregation dressed in white
from every tounge, from every tribe, from every people
and the music began and a celebration erupted
and i opened up my eyes, and there was the lamb,
although he was slain and i was at a wedding and i couldn’t believe my eyes
and i was dressed in garments, garments of beauty
and the music erupted and the angels sing
halleluja halleluja the choir has broke out
and i looked out and saw the lamb with eyes like fire
radiating, radiating with desire and he said what’s yours is mine
and what’s mine is yours
arise and sit on the throne, prepare for your beauty,
rise beauty rise, beauty rise and we say with one heart and one voice,
worthy is the lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world
oh worthy is the lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world
worthy is the lamb of God yeah, who takes away the sins of the world X2
we will marry the lamb, halleluja, we will marry the lamb forever amen
and worthy is the lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world
worthy is the lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world
halleluja halleluja ,
there’s going to be a wedding, there’s going to be a wedding ,
there’s going to be a wedding yeah
people get ready
what’s yours is mine and what’s mine is yours
who can comprehend where this is going
he said beauty arise, arise, arise
