Monday Mixes!

As many of you know, I grew up as a huge metal head. (Don’t worry! There is NON metal album on this post as well!) My love for metal has not changed though the bands i listen to have changed significantly. So I am thankful for Christians writing theological robust metal music. I know… those things dont normally go together. But that is exactly why I love Wolves at the Gate. Here are two albums i have thrououghly enjoyed. 

 

The first, for those who dont like metal listen to the EP below. Beautiful melodies, no screaming and great lyrics. 

Second, is an album called VxV.  One of my favorite albums that boldly proclaim the finished work of Christ at the cross that secures our forgiveness and salvation. This album has one of my al time favorite songs “The Father’s Bargain” which is based of a piece Puritan John Flavel wrote. You can find the lyrics below the playlist. 

The Fathers Bargain Lyrics

Oh now my son, here is a company of miserable souls
Cold and undone, searing their conscience with hearts black as coals
Here now they lie objects of justice, deserving of wrath
Speak your reply, what shall be done for them? Draw out your path
No one can contain the power and depths of my abundant love

Father, I say, such is my love and my pity for all
There is a way for no condemnation on men to befall
Whoa, such is my love and pity for all
No man can pay, I’ll make a way
No man can pay; utterly broke and poor to settle their debt
Though all’ve gone their way, I’ll yield a way for their sins to forget

Bring in all their sins
Lay it all on me
Bring in all their sins
Every last bill that they owe
Lay it all on me
For what they reap I will sow
The place these souls have found themselves is one of great distress
For even all their righteousness is just a filthy mess

O my son, you must understand that if I show mercy
You must reckon to pay, the last bit of my rage
For justice reigns upon this throne; perfection without flaw
How can the wicked find their peace and still have broken every law?

Let it be so, charge it on me
For I can bear the weight of sin so all would be free
Bring in all their sins
Every last bill that they owe
Lay it all on me
For what they reap I will sow

Blush Oman, let shame hide your face
For one of infinite worth has left his throne for his death
Which proves for our salvation, oh people hear my cries
With all our lusts and all our lies, when the truths come face to face
Did we earn such love and grace?
No we haven’t earned a thing, and there is nothing we can bring
To settle this age old rift and receive this perfect gift

If only you knew of the grace and love that our God has for all
You’d turn and look into the face of Jesus the Savior, who calls
Oh people, hear my cries, with all our lusts and all our lies
When the truths come face to face, did we earn such love and grace?
Oh we couldn’t earn a thing, and there is nothing we can bring
So receive this love and grace, believe his love and grace!
