Teenagers by Andy Gullahorn

Andy Gullahorn has just had a successful kickstarter campaign for his next album Everything As It Should Be.
Which is great news because it means that he’ll be able to release a new batch of wonderful, insightful songs.
Like this one.
Teenagers.
If you’ve got them, or you’ve had them it’ll ring pretty true.
(Maybe don’t be drinking your cup of tea while listening)

She Waits by The Gray Havens

She Waits is the title track from The Gray Havens’ recently released album.
(Their third full length studio album, I think)
Listen with Romans 8:19 in mind.

“She’s seen empires come and go
Watched the kingdom’s children grow
Sparks and embers far from home
Born to shine, and to behold

‘Cause on her chain is a lock and the key
Is the radiance she will see
From the light that’s gonna be
Cast from the sons and the daughters free”

Magnificent, Marvelous, Matchless Love – Sunday Songs

New songs from Getty Music feature on an EP called The Northcoast Sessions.
Magnificent, Marvellous, Matchless Love is a singable song of praise.

The lyrics:
1.
Magnificent, marvelous, matchless love; too vast and astounding to tell
Forever existing in worlds above, now offered and given to all.
Oh, fountain of beauty eternal; the Father, the Spirit, the Son.
Sufficient and endlessly generous, magnificent, marvelous, matchless love.
2.
Creation is brimming with thankfulness, the mountains, exultant they stand;
The seasons rejoice in Your faithfulness, all life is sustained by Your hand.
You crown every meadow with color; You paint every shade in the sky;
Each day the dawn wakes as an encore of magnificent, marvelous, matchless love.
Chorus
How great, how sure; His love endures forevermore.
Magnificent, marvelous, matchless love.
3.
What grace, that You entered our brokenness; You came in the fullness of time
How far we had fallen from righteousness, but not from the mercies of Christ.
Your cross is our door to redemption; Your death is our fullness of life.
That day, how forgiveness flowed as a flood: magnificent, marvelous, matchless love.
Chorus
How great, how sure; His love endures forevermore.
Magnificent, marvelous, matchless love.
4.
United in Your resurrection, You lift us to infinite heights
Could anything sever or take us from magnificent, marvelous, matchless love
Chorus
How great, how sure; His love endures forevermore.
Magnificent, marvelous, matchless love.

Words and Music: Matt Papa, Aaron Keyes, Luke Brown, and Keith and Kristyn Getty

King Of The Road – All Star Tribute

Well, we sort of feel like King Of The Road could be our soundtrack now that we’re back home.
This all-star version is from an upcoming Roger Miller tribute album.
I’m not sure if it’ll stay on youtube for long, so enjoy while it lasts, and play spot the star.

Top Of The Stairs by Scott Mulvahill

Scott Mulvahill’s album Himalayas is soon to be (or already is) released.
Top Of The Stairs is a track that represents the eclectic range that Mulvahill embraces.

“I may never make it and I don’t care
Gotta keep climbing til I run out of air
I may never make it and I don’t care
It’s all about steps not the top of the stairs”
