Hillsong United “Empires” Review & Giveaway


If you know anything about me, you will know that worship is my thing. It is what makes me feel close to Jesus when I’m struggling through a hard place.  It’s been such a God thing for me to be above to receive and review some amazing worship albums, music and lyrics which have touched my heart and reminded me of who I am.

I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to review the latest album by Hillsong United, “Empires“.

When on tour, they are accompanied by the whole Hillsong team’s support and prayers that their ministry would arrest hearts and point people to Jesus, impacting individuals, local youth groups and local churches.

My Thoughts

I’ve been listening to this album in my car on repeat for a couple of week snow. At first, I thought the music was a little busy in the background, but the more I listened to it, I have grown to appreciate the excellent musicianship of the Hillsong United worship band. Oh and the lyrics, they take my breath away. One of my favorite songs on this album is “Touch the Sky”.

Find me here at Your feet again
Everything I am, reaching out, I surrender
Come sweep me up in Your love again
And my soul will dance
On the wings of forever.My heart beating, my soul breathing
I found my life when I laid it down
Upward falling, spirit soaring
I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground(Touch the Sky, Hillsong United)

You can get a glimpse of Hillsong United performing “Touch the Sky” live on the Today Show here.

    I love Hillsong United. Along with countless others I am liking Oceans but worship to many of the older songs like Lead me to the Cross. The lyrics you posted are amazing. Can’t wait to hear some of the newer songs!
