I heard @jeremycasella tell a story about how a fan would listen to Guide Me O Thou Great Jehovah on repeat as he drove a tank around war-torn Iraq patrolling at night. Having been a long time @indeliblegracefan, it gave new life and perspective to its commentary on anxiety, the promises of God, and the story of the exilic people of God in Exodus. I had the chance to lead this song for congregation during celebration of the Eucharist and the words, "Bread of Heaven, feed me now and forever more." were a gift.
Interesting, yet singable melodies caught my attention, but theological depth is what got me excited about this album as a whole. Only a few minutes away from Hillsong's Australian campus, @cityalight fits in with contemporary styles, but brings a fresh perspective from the Anglican tradition. Favorite track: I Want To Know You
All Things New comes from the retuned hymn movement @clintwells and uses lyrics from Horatius Bonar from 1779 based on Revelation 25 and Romans 8. It fills a need in worship for a pleading cry to God to come soon and complete his work on earth.
@iamsonmusic is one of my new favorite artists. This whole album helps me get into a worshipful attitude, but Passover Song brings it home. And if you keep listening, the next track, One Time, brings you from Americana sentiments right into groovy #church #celebration. Follow him on Spotify and swipe for a snapshot overview.
