Monday Mixes!

Sorry its been awhile since the last Monday mix, but I promise this week will not disappoint. This is a band I heard about in university but still enjoy to this day. They are called Ascend the Hill and the album is Take the World but Give me Jesus. Its an excellent album to encourage  your soul to worship and praise Jesus for the treasure that He is. They are theologically reach and musically creative. Enjoy!

I wonder where is your home? The bible describes Christians as exiles, a people who do not live in their homeland. The bible reminds us that our home is not here with our wealth, stuff, and friends, but in heaven. The Christian’s home is heaven, where God is. Here is an album written by a great couple that form the group the Gray Havens. It is an album that will fix your eyes on heaven and the hope Christians have in a crucified, risen king.

A Late Monday Mix

Needing some more music for your soul? If you have never listened to Beautiful Eulogy you are in for a treat. Beautiful Eulogy is made up of three brothers in Christ who love the Lord and long to make Jesus known through music. Im not just talking about light frivolous music that mentions the name of Jesus here and there, but rich, deep, theological truths put to music that will spur you on to follow Jesus. Their songs range from clinging to Christ as our only hope in suffering, to songs longing for heaven and the return of Christ. You will find songs that will expose the weight of your sin and guilt before a holy God and songs that make you marvel at the magnitude at God’s grace for us through Christ. The best part? They FREELY give all they music away. So please check them out here

It has certainly been long overdue, but here is an excellent album to feed your souls while you are all in school limbo. In it, Shai Linne delivers a hard-hitting, soul-stirring album about God and his attributes. Attributes of God cover God’s justice, mercy, love and so much more. So take a break from studying, or even make it your study music, and fill your minds with the riches of Christ.

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
