“I Waited for the Lord”

I recently listened to an archived recording of Alistair Begg’s two-part teaching titled Submitting to God.  Toward to end of the second part he talked about developing intimacy with God.  “Intimacy with God does not happen by chance, but it must be deliberately cultivated,” he said, and stated that we do that through reading scripture and prayer.

Begg gave an example from his childhood in Scotland, the church singing metrical Psalm 40, and proceeded to sing the first meter, “I…. waited…. for… the… Lord,” almost droning in a solemn, expectant tone.  It seemed, to me, like the perfect marriage of tune, tone and lyrics.  I was unable to find a good example to share, but you can hear it if you go to the 16 minute mark here .  The teaching is good too.
