Jeremy Camp “The Answer” CD Review & Giveaway

I’m wrapping up a spectacular month of new music and giveaways with Jeremy Camp’s The Answer CD. My husband and I have been Jeremy Camp fans for a long time, beginning with Carried Me, The Worship Project. I actually think my husband was rocking out to him before that. This new album did not disappoint!

Here is what Jeremy says about this new album:

“What’s been amazing about The Answer is that all of the songs were inspired by just being present,” Camp shares. “There was no song where I was sitting there and had this epiphany when I was writing. In every writing session, any idea literally just came in the moment. I was praying the whole time, ‘Lord, give me opportunities to combine these things that You are doing in our hearts.”

I was most familiar with the song, Word of Life as it’s been playing on my local Christian radio station. This song is catchy and really helps you to remember that God’s Word is life and that when all else fails, it is there to bring hope and comfort.

Word of life
Speak to my weary heart
Strengthen my broken parts
Lead me to Your open arms
Word of truth
Illuminate all these lies
The enemy speaks inside
In freedom I will rise

‘Cause You called me out from the grave
So I can live like I’ve been changed
There is a new song in my soul
And it begins when I breathe in
Your word of life
(Your word of life)

Here is the the story behind the song, Word of Life:

 

Another song I love on this album is Never Stopped Loving.  This song talks about God’s love for us, how it will never end. No matter what we do, how we turn away, God continues to chase after us. He will never stop loving us.

You kept on calling my name
through all my darkness and haze
even when I had fell apart
You held me close to Your heart

when I had gone astray
how You would chase me
how You would chase me
when I was so afraid
You would embrace me
You would embrace me

You never stop loving
never stop loving me
You never stop loving
never stop loving me

Here is the song video for Never Stopped Loving:

My husband’s favorite song on this album is Awake O Sleeper. Not only are the lyrics powerful in this song, but the music tone is very Blue Grass, which my husband loves!

do you hear the Lion roar
wake o sleeper
stand with me we’ll fight the war
wake o sleeper

your suffering will come again
and never fall away
unless we trade our many comforts
like the ones who bled for grace

and there will be a day
my God will come and put me in my place
my God I know You’ll call my name
You will not turn away

Overall, I, along with my husband, really enjoyed this album. There are a lot of songs that cause my faith to rise up and say, “No, I will not believe the lies. I will stand on the promises of God.”! We are actually hoping to catch Jeremy’s The Answer tour in Stockton next weekend! So excited!

    Barbie – thanks so much for this review. I love his music and appreciate the chance to win. Would love to see him in concert. I think the last person I saw was Kari Jobe – she was lovely and a beautiful worship leader.
