Listen to the Music!

This week we are featuring Words Upon the Wall, from Peter Link’s newest album Remnants. Additionally, this song’s sheet music was released last year in Peter’s songbook Solos for Sunday Morning. The following are Peter’s thoughts on this tune:

“Here’s a song that experiences a moment we’ve all shared many times before, during, or after church, sitting in the quiet of God’s presence, applying what we’ve learned, struggling with life, seeking a solution … and then, there it is, written on the wall before us.

“When truth is so true, so well said, so clear that it warrants being written upon a wall for all to see, to study, and to remember, it achieves a permanency. It lives on through the ages.

“I always thought it interesting that graffiti is so hard to read. It’s usually someone’s name – someone desperate to be remembered. Or sometimes it’s a slander. Or sometimes a complaint. But the very nature of the artwork, though sometimes truly artful, is that it does not communicate well because its point is hidden in its unreadability.

“But the words upon the wall that this song speaks of are usually written clearly in gold lettering – and are truths to be treasured.”

  1. So proud and inspired by this profound and beautiful body of work by Peter Link. (With quotes from MARY BAKER EDDY and the BIBLE)
    “Divine Love Always Has Met And Always Will Meet Every Human Need”.
    I am most comforted by the word ALWAYS!
    I don’t think any words have rung so dear or more deeply into my ears and to the depths of my soul! When things are challenging, and I’ve remembered or spoken these words to myself or others, they pull all of life into line and guides my course. With all that is going on around us, this is a reminder of God’s gentle caring for us all! This song is a stand out!

    1. Thank you Jenny! Your words are often such a comfort to me. Thanks for writing in.

  2. Peter, I sang this as a solo in church a few weeks ago and I can say there was hardly a dry eye in the congregation. Your lyrics and music speak right to the heart–what a wonderful gift you have been given. Thank you.

    1. Thank you, Nancy. And thank you also for being such a loyal and supportive customer all these many years!
