Song Story:  THE  MUSIC:   
The music came first: The melody “just sort of happened”, in That Way that God's Holy Spirit leads: As I was exercising fingers on my guitar, just playing whatever chords came to mind... I fell in love with the first set of chords that became this song.

Song Story:  THE  LYRICS:   
Next I prayed, “which psalm, LORD?” I'd recently finished Psalm 91 which filled in the set up to 103, had done Psalm 88 Crying Out in 2012; Psalm 90 is the Song of Moses (done) and 87, 89 were long. It seemed God guided me to the lovely prayer of David in Psalm 86. Since the Psalm's first words were translated as asking God to BOW His ears to us, I decided to use the synonym that does not give the false first impression implying that our LORD ever would have reason to “bow” to us.

Dedicated to our LORD Listener, 22 January 2015

Bend Your ear down, LORD, oh hear me! For I'm needy-- Poor without You!
You are my God! LORD, preserve my life, for I'm holy, wholly set aside for You!
Save me, LORD: I serve and worship You!
Save me, LORD: I fully trust in You!                    > CHORUS
Give me mercy! Lord, all day I cry --- to You, LORD, I lift my soul!
You are holy, ready to forgive us, full of mercy to all those who call on You!
Give ear, LORD: There is no God like You!
All nations exist only by You!                               > CHORUS
You alone are GOD. I will walk in Your Truth and give You glory!
You deliver all who worship You. turn to me, and give strength: Let them all see You!
Have mercy, though I don't deserve it!
Thank You, LORD, for all Your Compassion!       > CHORUS

Let us bow our hearts and pray; bend our ears to all God says,
With Psalm 86, let us PRAISE the LORD Who bends His ear to hear
all who bow their ears to Him, who seek His Wisdom and protection:
With Psalm 86, let's REJOICE!
God answers all who Bend their ears to His Words.

Psalm 86: 11 ​​Teach me Your way, O LORD; ​​I will walk in Your truth;
​​Unite my heart to fear Your name. 12 ​​I will praise You, O Lord my God, with all my heart,
​​And I will glorify Your name forevermore. 13 ​​For great is Your mercy toward me,
​​And You have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.”

Exodus 15: 2. The LORD is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation;
is my God, and I will praise Him; My father's God, and I will exalt Him.
