This post is old… It's probably been exported and imported from at least three different blogging platforms over the year. That probably means that there are broken images and links. If the post is technical in nature, any adivce is out of date and irrelevant. Or more likely, it was the wafflings of bored-past me with too much time on his hands. If it is the latter I would probably cringe if I re-read it. But it's here because it's part of my past, not my present.
"I am stained with dirt, prone to depravity,The song Wholly Yours looks at us next to God, we are sinful fallen creatures, next to God's holiness. Then track 7; the title track A Beautiful Collision, is all about the collision between us and God; everything thrown bare before God:
You are everything that is bright and clean...
You are holy, holy, holy
I wanna be holy like You are"
"So afraid You 'll find me out,Christ's redemption and grace are seen here and on into tracks like You Are My Joy, which shows the authors joy as a result:
Alone here with my doubt,
Here it comes, a beautiful collision...
There seems no end to where You begin and,
there I am now: You and I collide"
"Love's taken over meFinally the album goes on to the end of times looking at our ultimate reward and rescue from this world in tracks like Our Happy Home:
And so I propose the letting myself go,
I am letting myself go,
You are my joy."
Our better home where we our rest shall gainHighly recommend it, well worth a listen! The stand out tracks: Here Is Our King, Do Not Move and You Are My Joy.
There sin and sorrow cease and every conflict's o'er
There we shall dwell in endless peace and never hunger more...
Jerusalem, our happy home
