Free Music!

One band that has greatly encouraged my soul is the Gray Havens. They have been described as the CS Lewis of music. They have an amazing ability to write stories that reflect the glories of the Gospel. And right now they are giving three of their albums out for FREE! Get them here.

Here are the lyrics of one of my favorite songs to give you a taste.  

Train Station

There’s a train station inside of this train,
Where the people go to try and escape,

And with anxious eyes, we stand in line,
Til’ the cold ground shakes,
To tell us it’s time for the trains,
Yes it’s time for the trains to stop,

Some were steel and some were gold,
And each conductor raved,
They shouted buy your tickets,
Save your souls,
But one conductor sang,

He shouted You, come follow me,
I’ll buy your tickets and I’ll pay your fees,
Cuz I know what you cost,
Believe me without this train you will be lost,

So the rich men laughed and they walked away,
But the poor ones felt that they should stay,
So they told all of their friends,
They told even strangers, til there ten thousands,
Of people said come let us see,
This scandalous train that claims to be free,
Just let him speak,

So he drew a picture on the ground,
The stone moved just like sand,
He said throw your tickets on the floor,
I’ll give you mine instead,

And he shouted You, come follow me,
I’ll buy your tickets and I’ll pay your fees,
Cuz I know what you cost,
Believe me without this train you will be lost,

The soldiers rushed in like a flood,
Wild eyed looking for blood,
They said show us the one who lies, deceives,
And claims his trains of grace are free,

Cuz we’ll take his body to the tracks,
And nail him there so he never comes back,
Yeah, we’ll take his body to the tracks,
And nail him there so he never comes back,

And then the ground began to shake,
We felt the stone beneath us break,
And he came back, he came back anyway,

And there was love, And there was love

And he shouted You, come follow me,
I’ll buy your tickets and I’ll pay your fees,
Cuz I know what you cost,
Believe me without this train you will be lost
