Jesus, See The Traveler (via Sara Groves)

A lovely simple prayer of a song.

Take Heart by Citizens

Take Heart is a track from Citizens’ album Fear.
It seems to be a reflection on Jesus’ words in John 16:33 – I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

Only A Holy God – Sunday Songs

A quick search indicates I’ve never posted CityAlight’s Only A Holy God, the title track from their album of the same name.

Who else commands all the hosts of heaven
Who else could make every king bow down
Who else can whisper and darkness trembles
Only a Holy God
What other beauty demands such praises
What other splendour outshines the sun
What other majesty rules with justice
Only a Holy God Chorus
Come and behold Him
The One and the Only
Cry out, sing holy
Forever a Holy God
Come and worship the Holy God
What other glory consumes like fire
What other power can raise the dead
What other name remains undefeated
Only a Holy God
Who else could rescue me from my failing
Who else would offer His only Son
Who else invites me to call Him Father
Only a Holy God
Only my Holy God

Looking Up by Citizens

Citizens have a new album entitled Fear releasing later this week.
Kickstarter backers have been listening to it a week early.
Looking Up is the first official video released.
This is not so much ‘sing in church’ material, and I don’t know why they’re busting all their best dad dance moves for the video, but the music is strong.

Losing Battles by Josh Ritter

Losing Battles is a track from Josh Ritter’s just released (tenth!, I think) album Fever Breaks.
Adding to the experience this time around is production from Jason Isbell who provides music along with his band The 400 Unit.
Ritter’s lyrics interact with themes of good and evil, love and loss, failure and hope. Yearning.
I’ve liked the more story-telling songs in the past, but these seem personal.
