Sovereign Grace Music
- The songs have excellent words - really strong theologically.
- The tunes are generally strong too.
- And I don't know what more we would want, in all honesty!!
Top 3 CD Recommendations
OK, so I only list 1 or 2 tracks from each CD - but bear in mind they're 3 of my top 10 Christian CDs, and if I told you everything I liked, we'd be here all day!
1) Songs for the Cross-Centred Life is the first one I came across, with my top song of the last few years, namely I Come by the Blood which has verses setting up the problem of God's perfection and our sin, with choruses that show us the solution: "I come by the blood, I come by the cross...". Other crackers include two brilliant solos The Look and I Will Glory in my Redeemer. I also love the congregational Jesus my Only Hope which has the great section:
when Satan's accusations2) Valley of Vision is a bunch of songs taken from the great great book of Puritan prayers by the same name - which I use each day in my prayer times, and love... The highlights of that CD are the brilliantly trinitarian Heavenly Father, Beautiful Son, Spirit of Light and Truth and outstanding Let your Kingdom Come with O Great God a stunning solo piece...
make my poor heart afraid
I hear my King declaring
Father, that debt is paid
3) Worship God Live is much more on the rock side of things - and is stunning from first to last if you like things a) live and b) rocked up. I love the first and last songs particularly, but the whole thing's cracking.
Anyway - Sov Grace comes highly recommended!
