Carolyn Arends' "Psalm 5" Expresses Our Hearts' Cries in This Current Russian-Ukraine Crisis

Carolyn Arends

Two times Dove Award winner Carolyn Arends returns with a brand new single "Psalm 5." The song is the first release from Arends' acoustic worship EP In the Morning. "Psalm 5," which features Steve Bell duetting with Arends and plaintive violin solo from Spencer Capier, is a cry to God to listen our hearts' cry. 

In a time when Russia is ruthlessly and violently innvading Ukraine,"Psalm 5" expresses our intercession for the innocent victims of this current war. "With the start of Lent - not to mention the situation in the Ukraine and global unrest," Arends observes, "it seems like a prayer that might be helpful for many." 

Give ear to my words, O Lord/Consider my meditation/Harken unto the voice of my cry/My King and my God
