Music Tuesday - Passion: God of this City

I love the Passion albums and this one is no exception. I don't know what it is, but Tomlin, Crowder and the gang seem to have their pulse on the heart of God and the heart of the Church. So far, here are the songs I'm really enjoying...

God of This City - the title track brings so much hope. It makes me want to get together all of the churches in our area and remind them that God is still at work and He has plans for us.

O For A Thousand Tongues to Sing - David Crowder brings the old and makes it new again. He adds a great refrain to this majestic Hymn...
So come on and sing out
Let our anthem grow loud
There is one great love... Jesus

Hosanna - So far this is my favorite song on the album. I heard it from Hillsong United, and Brooke Fraser does such a great job on this song. But I must say that Christy Nockels is incredible and this song fits her well. The bridge on this song is amazing...
Heal my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like you have loved me
Break my heart for what breaks yours
Everything I am for your kingdom's cause
As I walk from earth into eternity

You can hear Brooke Fraser's version on youtube, or just click below...



Sing, Sing, Sing
- Just an absolutely fun song. My favorite part is when the build comes and Tomlin says "Ready! 1-2-3," and you are expecting this huge crash on the drums, but instead all you hear is the crowd singing at the top of their lungs to the Lord. Awesome!

Beautiful Jesus is really starting to grow on me. I think Kristian Stanfill's rendition of Jesus Paid it All may be my favorite from the last Passion album that I have. Stanfill delivers again with this song.

The Glory of It All - I know that some people just find him to be odd, but I really like David Crowder. I guess that says something about me. :)

There's also some Matt Redman & Charlie Hall on this album. Even Steve Fee shows up. Tomlin has another rendition of My Chains are Gone as well. It's well worth the 9 dollar download from Amazon or for you iTunes users it's $10.
