Listen to the Music!
As many around the world continue to physically distance themselves from each other in a noble effort to protect us all, our thoughts this week turn toward God, the greatest protector of all, extolled in Mindy Jostyn’s I Will Lift Up My Eyes, with words adapted from Psalm 121. This minimalist-pop paean—with a simple piano chord motif and one sparse cymbal underlying Mindy’s pure, heartfelt voice—highlights the message of the lyrics, with further emphasis added through the use of subtle yet intriguing vocal harmonies. So cozy up with your loved ones, pets, or a nice warm mug of tea, and let Mindy envelop you in love and safety. This song is from Mindy’s beloved album In His Eyes, a wonderful collection of 16 non-denominational folk hymns. Produced by Mindy and Matt Balitsaris, it’s flavored with musical influences from around the world and features Mindy’s expressive vocals and her command of violin, accordion, keyboard, guitar and harmonica.
