Song of the Month


It is time for another song! I have recently discovered a duo called All Sons & Daughters, and I love their work. They have a very mellow-acoustic sound that is fantastic. Their first full length album, called Season One, flows in more like movement to movement than song to song.

There is one particular cut that has stood out to me during these first few days of Lent. It’s called Brokenness Aside. The body of the lyrics says,

Cause I am a sinner
If its not one thing its another
Caught up in words
Tangled in lies
You are the Savior
And you take brokenness aside
And make it beautiful

For me, this is part of the reflection of the Lenten season. To realize that I am a sinner, unable to put things together on my own, but that Jesus is an amazing Savior, who does make something beautiful.


Song of the Month


One of the groups that I very quickly became locked into is Gungor. Actually, I’m puzzled as to how I have not posted anything about them yet! Their music is very creative and unique. They are one of those groups who has the magical ability to make each song unique. I really don’t get tired of listening to their album Beautiful ThingsTheir latest album, Ghosts Upon the Earth, has an almost entirely different feel than Beautiful Things- which just solidifies how creative Gungor really is.

So to show case their creativity (and one of my favorite tracks), here is one of their music videos. Enjoy…


Song of the Month


I realize it’s been a very long time since I’ve posted a song, but I wanted to get back at it! This summer I discovered (thanks to my really awesome friends) a band that has become one of my favorites. Rend Collective Experiment is a group out of the North of Ireland. Their creativity in lyric and melody is refreshing and awesome. Give them a listen, check out their website, then buy an album! It’s not often I say to buy the album- but this one is totally worth it.


Song of the Month


It’s Monday after Easter! Woo hoo! In honor of Easter and all that it represents, I thought this song would be a good choice for the Song of the Month. Enjoy….

Newsboys: Savior of the World

God so loved, that He gave His son
To lay down His life for the sake of us
He bore the weight of our sin and shame
With a cry He said, It is finished

Christ the Lord overcame the darkness
He’s alive: death has been defeated

For He made us a way
by which we have been saved
He’s the Savior of the world
So we lift up a shout for his fame and renown
Praise the Lord
Praise the Lord
Jesus, Savior of the world

We must spread the word of His soon return
To reclaim the world for His glory
Let the church now sing of this coming King
Crowned with majesty, our Redeemer

And He reigns, Ruler of the heavens
And His name is Jesus, the Messiah

For He made us a way
by which we have been saved
He’s the Savior of the world
So we lift up a shout for his fame and renown
Praise the Lord
Praise the Lord
Jesus, Savior of the world

Christ the Lord overcame the darkness
He’s alive: death has been defeated
And He reigns, ruler of the heavens
And His name is Jesus, the Messiah

For He made us a way
by which we have been saved
He’s the Savior of the world
So we lift up a shout for his fame and renown
Praise the Lord
Praise the Lord
Jesus, Savior of the world


Song of the Month


One of my favorites right now is Mumford & Sons. But I don’t think I should say much about this song… I think you should just listen.

 


OK Go Does It Again


Remember way back in 2006 when these guys came out with the treadmill music video? Well, they just keep getting better!  Here is OK Go‘s latest. Still incredibly creative and seriously impressive.


Song of the Month


I thought I would go fairly old school with this month’s song. But in a different kind of way. I thought about some really good songs from The Eagles or something from Ol’ Blue Eyes, Frank Sinatra, that could be fun and old school. But that is not the direction I’m taking this time.

I actually thought I would share with you one of my favorite church hymns. The words were written in 1901 by Maltbie D. Babcock and put to a traditional English melody. The title is This Is My Father’s World. The lyrics and melody fit so well together in my mind. I love listening to and singing this song!

One of my favorite things to do is to be outside and for me this song expresses why I love to be outside. Being out doors reminds me that this is my Father’s world. This song helps me remember that when I am not outside!

This is my Father’s world
And to my listening ears
All nature sings and round me rings
The music of the spheres

This is my Father’s world
I rest me in the thought
Of rocks, of trees, of skies and seas
His hand the wonders wrought

This is my Father’s world
Oh, and let me never forget
That though the wrong seems often so strong
God is the ruler yet

This is my Father’s world

Oh, the battle is not done
It’s Jesus who died will be satisfied
And the earth, heaven will be one
It’s Jesus who died will be satisfied
And the earth and heaven
Oh, earth and heaven
Oh, earth and heaven will be one
