Christ is Risen – Matt Maher

This is really good. I know I say a variation of those words everytime I link to a song, but really – this is good. My friend posted it on Facebook, and I listened to it. I must say, the music was what caught my ear, but that turned out well: because of that, I read the lyrics more carefully, and I was duly encouraged. Enjoy.

Let no one caught in sin remain
Inside the lie of inward shame
But fix our eyes upon the cross
And run to Him who showed great love
And bled for us
Freely You’ve bled for us

Christ is risen from the dead
Trampling over death by death
Come awake, come awake
Come and rise up from the grave
Christ is risen from the dead
We are one with Him again
Come awake, come awake
Come and rise up from the grave

Beneath the weight of all our sin
You bowed to none but heaven’s will
No scheme of hell, no scoffer’s crown
No burden great can hold You down
In strength You reign
Forever let Your church proclaim

O death, where is your sting?
O hell, where is your victory?
O church, come stand in the light
The glory of God has defeated the night

O death, where is your sting?
O hell, where is your victory?
O church, come stand in the light
Our God is not dead
He’s alive! He’s alive!


Chording update: Yours to Take

So…yo, sup y’all?

In all seriousness, I got the majority of the chord arrangement done last week. It’s just a basic 4-chord combination. Once I figured out said combo, it was just a case of placing the chords above the appropriate lyrics.

G D Em
Am Em Bm E

D Bm G A
Bm D ? A

The chord in the place of the question mark is what’s causing me a bit of trouble. I’ll get it soon enough I guess; if not, then I’ll just post the arrangement up and get the closest sounding chord.

For now, over and out!

Yours to Take – Jimmy Needham

This song was playing on Sydney’s Christian radio channel, Hope 103.2, in a friend’s car coming home from Kick-off 2010 (see previous post). I really liked both the lyrics and the music, so I promptly googled the lyrics at home to get the song title. Listen to the song below, and lyrics are posted after the video (click the “Continue Reading” link).

Yours to Take is the lead single from Jimmy Needham’s new album “Nightlights”, which is planned to be released mid-May.

Your Hands – JJ Heller

I came across a tweet containing the line “When my world is shaking Heaven stands When my heart is breaking I never leave Your hands”. I googled those lyrics, and I found that they’re lyrics of the song Your Hands by JJ Heller.

When I listened to it, the combination of lyrics and amazing music blew me away (yeah I know that’s so clichéd, but whatever haha). So I’ve posted it here for your listening pleasure. (lyrics are in the “More info” link on the Youtube page)

He is Lord – Hillsong

He is Lord – Hillsong, “This is Our God” (2008)

I’m Yours – Ukulele Boy

Isn’t this so awesome and…dare I say, cute?

Lo, He Comes With Clouds Descending – Lichfield Cathedral Choir

Before tonight, I hadn’t sung/heard this song for, give or take, about 9 years. I really enjoyed listening to it again.
