I have been so blessed over the last month to have received some amazing new worship CDs for review. The newest one is by Matt Redman entitled Glory Song. I am a huge Matt Redman fan so I was super excited to review this one.
About The Album
Matt Redman teamed up with several of his worship-artist friends for this album, first releasing the track “Gracefully Broken (feat. Tasha Cobbs Leonard).” Tasha Cobbs Leonard also released her own version of this song on the same day! The album also features Kierra Sheard, Guvna B, Madison Cunningham, and Kim Walker-Smith.
When Matt released his single Gracefully Broken, I was instantly a fan and I knew I was going to love this album. The lyrics in this song speak of one that longs to be set on fire, used by God. There is something about the term “gracefully broken” that causes my heart to cry out. I am so thankful that He’s covered my brokenness with His grace.
My heart stands in awe of Your Name
Your Mighty love stands strong to the end
You will fulfill your purpose for me
You won’t forsake me, You will be with me
Here I am, God
Arms wide open
Pouring out my life
Pouring out my life again
Here is a video of a live performance of Gracefully Broken.
Another song that really gripped my heart was Questions (You Are Faithful). This song brings so much comfort, especially with all that is happening in the world today. It speaks of a God who can be trusted, despite the chaos that surrounds us. He really is faithful.
In all of our chaos, You will be constant
You can be trusted above it all
All of our fears and doubts, all of our anxious thoughts
You are not absent within the storm
Another one of my favorite songs on this album is Still I Will Sing. Worship is something that I go to when life gets hard and I can’t seem to do anything else. Singing songs of praise to the Lord, songs about His character and faithfulness always bring me closer to Him. No matter what is going on in my life, still I will sing.
I’ll sing out Your praise in the morning light
And I’ll call out Your name on the edge of night
Sometimes it’s a song of joy
Sometimes a sacrifice
Still I sing, still I will
Sing in the battle, sing in the blessing
Sing through the shadows, shout with the heavens
I won’t be silent, no, I won’t be silent
Still I sing, still I will sing
This album came at a time in my life when I needed to be reminded that God is faithful and that His glory still shines. No matter what is happening in my life, God is worthy to be praised.
