Bethel Music releases a new worship song titled “Tend,” the songwriter shares that it is inspired by a powerful message of God.
On September 10, Bethel Music released a new worship song written by Emmy Rose. It is a song that is about God being the Gardener of our lives. A Gardener that helps us grow into who He wants us to be by guiding us and pruning what should not be in our lives.
“A careful hand, a gentle guide. You take what’s dead away and You prune what’s running wild,” written in the song lyrics.
It is also about our total surrender to God, letting God tend our souls. By letting God be our Gardener, expect that there will be pruning, a painful process that yields to greater things. Pruning is not rejecting, it is an act of love of God towards His creations.
“So be the gardener of my heart, tend the soil of my soul, break up the fallow ground, cut back the overgrown. And I won’t shy away I will let the branches fall so what You want can stay and what You love can grow.”
In a separate post, Emmy shares what inspired her to write the song. The worship leader highlights that being corrected by the Lord is a privilege.
“I was reading John 15 and I just felt really inspired hearing Jesus talk about His Father is the gardener and that He is the vine and we’re the branches. I love the idea that He prunes not to reject or to hurt us, but actually unto fruitfulness. If we’re actually walking with the Lord, it’s a privilege to be corrected and it’s a sign of maturity,” Emmy said.
