YAHWEH (single)

24-bit, 48 kHz .WAV

This song was written by singer-songwriter friends Stephan Cloete and Helmut Meijer during a songwriting retreat in 2019. Additional lyrics were contributed by Rick Moser.

In Ancient Hebrew, Yahweh was understood to be the fixed point by which the desert dwellers navigated their nomadic lives, pretty much like the north star was the point of reference in the night skies.

"Yahweh" embroiders on this metaphor, wrapped in a modern Synth-pop sleeve.

lyrics

There's a star, a star to see
But the clouds are hanging right in front of me
It seems so far, so far ahead
Doesn't look like a single thing you said

You shine, brighter than the Heavens
You are clearer than the skies

YAHWEH, YAHWEH
YAHWEH, YAHWEH

You are brighter than the other...
Stars, stars, ooh

Like the sun, You're the One
Luminescent, cosmis center of it all
Higher far, than every star
You're sustaining everything by Who You are

YAHWEH, YAHWEH
YAHWEH, YAHWEH

You are brighter than the other...
Stars, stars, ooh

Bright and clear, You shine in the dark
Radiant, You light up my heart
Making sense of all the broken parts

YAHWEH, YAHWEH, YAHWEH

You are brighter than the stars
