Man Of Sorrows Hillsong Live Lyrics Glorious Ruins

VERSE
Man of sorrows Lamb of God

Beaten mocked and scorned

My salvation
Where Your love poured out over me
Now my soul cries out
Hallelujah
Praise and honour unto Thee

Sent of heaven God’s own Son
To purchase and redeem
And reconcile the very ones
Who nailed Him to that tree

Now my debt is paid
It is paid in full
By the precious blood
That my Jesus spilled

Now the curse of sin
Has no hold on me
Whom the Son sets free
Oh is free indeed

See the stone is rolled away
Behold the empty tomb
Hallelujah God be praised
He’s risen from the grave

Chasing You Bethel Music Tides Jenn Johnson

You hide, I want to find You, go
And I will follow You
I want to be where You are

As you move, I’m right beside You, oh
I’m running after You
I want to be where You are

Captivated, I just can’t get enough
I’ll spend my days

Captivated, I just can’t get enough
I’ll spend my days
Running after Your heart

And where You lead I’ll go
I want to be where You are

From the moment I rise, to the moment I sleep
My affection is for You, and even as I dream
I want to know you, I’m after Your heart

This life, this love, was always meant to be
A wild, crazy adventure, discovering
The thrill, the rush, the more of You I see
The more it leaves me wanting
You’re everything, You’re everything

I Can Feel You Bethel Music Tides Jenn Johnson

The wind and waves surround me
And I’m tossed, Feel like I’m drowning
I am tired, I am weak
I need You here with me
‘Cause I can feel the rising tide
But I don’t have the strength to fight
I feel clouded and confused
I need You here with me

Chorus:
In the chaos of the storm
I have drifted far; far away
But I call out Your name
‘Cause You are just a breath
A breath away

Then through the shadows
Your light appears
I’ve known You’re with me
But now it is clear
I can feel You
Jesus All around

Like sun on my skin
Warm to the touch
Here You surround me
I am held by love
I can feel You
Jesus all around

Now hope is rushing through my veins
With everything You’ve rearranged

I am peaceful; I am brave
When You’re here with me

All my questions find their answers here
When You come You change the atmosphere
I am focused; I am clear
When You’re here with me

Chorus:
In the chaos of the storm
I have drifted far; far away
But I call out Your name
‘Cause You are just a breath
A breath away

Then through the shadows
You’re light appears
I’ve known You’re with me
But now its is clear
I can feel You
Jesus all around

Like sun on my skin
Warm to the touch
Here You surround me
I am held by love
I can feel You
Jesus all around

There is nothing in this world
That will satisfy my soul like You do (2)

Then through the shadows
You’re light appears
I’ve known You’re with me
But now its is clear
I can feel You
Jesus all around

Like sun on my skin
Warm to the touch
Here You surround me
I am held by love
I can feel You
Jesus all around

Though the storm it rages
I won’t be moved
I won’t be shaken
I’m anchored in You
I can feel You
Jesus all around

Then through the shadows
You’re light appears
I’ve known You’re with me
But now its is clear
I can feel You
Jesus all around

EVERFOUND RELEASES WORD ENTERTAINMENT DEBUT ALBUM TODAY

 

 

Everfound, a band comprised of four Russian-born brothers, released their self-titled label debut today to critical acclaim (iTunes link:http://smarturl.it/everfound). The band celebrated the release this past weekend at Saddleback Church in Southern California. Earlier this year they played there for a massive kick-off for “The Bible” mini-series, as their single “What Love Means” is featured on the companion CD, with Mark Burnett, Roma Downey and Pastor Rick Warren in attendance. Immediately following the performance Warren declared via Twitter: “Mark my word: This band is going to be HUGE!” Everfound will continue the celebration on July 27 when they will make their national TV debut and perform their current Top 13 hit single, “Never Beyond Repair” on Fox News Channel’s “Huckabee.”

Everfound, co-produced by Seth Mosley (Francesca Battistelli, for KING & COUNTRY, Newsboys, Audio Adrenaline) and Pete Kipley (Phil Wickham, Matthew West, MercyMe), features 14 tracks all written or co-written by the band. The band’s goal when creating this album was to write songs that could serve as the soundtrack to people’s daily lives. “Every song on this record is about something that we’ve gone through ourselves,” said lead singer Nikita. “The struggles, the defeats the victories, peaks, valleys and everything in between – all written with the goal of reaching people with the love of Christ.” Everfound’s songwriting fused with a rock sound that mirrors their musical influences which include The Killers, U2, Coldplay and 30 Seconds to Mars, results in a debut release that is garnering praise from critics in early reviews.

 

“Everfound is the top alt-rock album of the year. I can’t get enough of this album, which is loaded with catchy and hope-filled emotional rock songs. This album will stay in heavy rotation for me all year.” –NewReleaseTuesday.com

 

“Everfound’s self-titled debut is one to savor over and over again…now is the time for Everfound to shine and show the world that a new rock band is in town! And I suggest you all jump on the bandwagon, they’ll be the band on everyone’s lips pretty soon!” – Christianmusiczine.com

 

“…this popularity is only going to soar with its self-titled debut album.” – HM Magazine

“Of all the new bands that I’ve heard over the past couple years, I don’t know if I’ve been personally pulling for one harder than this one.” JesusfreakHideoout.com

 

If you only buy one new CD in 2013, make sure it’s the new release by this band.” – Spin: The Blog

 

The band recently wrapped up touring with the Dare 2 Share youth conference and spent last fall opening for Matthew West on his “Into the Light Tour.” They can be seen this summer throughout the country at various festivals:

July 18:                      Sonshine Festival – Willmar, MN

Integrity Music Signs Songwriter/Worship Leader Dustin Smith, Prepares For Global Release of Smith’s Rushing Waters DVD/CD

Integrity Music announces the signing of songwriter and worship leader Dustin Smith and the forthcoming global release of his DVD/CD Rushing Waters on September 10.
Based in Kansas City, Missouri, Smith serves as a worship leader at World Revival Church. A pastor’s son, Smith has been involved in fulltime ministry for 16-plus years, including the past eight years on staff at WRC. He previously released six independent albums including Everything Inside MeOpen The Floodgates and Healing Waters, as well as teaching materials that cover a variety of topics such as “Are You God Conscious?” and “Function Before Title.”
Inspired by his church, his pastor and his own personal journey in Christ, Smith has written and co-written worship songs that range in theme from adoration and surrender to spiritual warfare. These songs include “Yahweh,” “Jesus,” “Reign Over Me” and “Rushing Waters,” a song that has moved beyond the WRC congregation to find a home in churches around the world.
“Dustin is a gifted songwriter and worship leader who has faithfully served the local church for many years,” says Craig Dunnagan, Integrity’s Vice President of Music Publishing/Ministry Alliances. “We are excited to partner with him in his growing ministry and we look forward to sharing his songs with the global Church.”
Co-written by Smith and Michael Farren (Pocket Full Of Rocks), the song “Rushing Waters,” was inspired by the picture of worship presented in Revelation 19:6 that reads: “Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting ‘Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns’.”
Recalling the songwriting process with Farren, who co-produced the Rushing Waters project, Smith says: “Michael had asked me what was on my heart. So I shared this scripture from Revelation… we were both overwhelmed with the thought of worship that was like the roar of rushing waters. What a great lesson for worship leaders! Instead of just trying to instruct people on what to do in worship, we need to start directing them on whom to look at! When people see God for who He really is, they can’t help but worship loudly and extravagantly.”
A visual preview of the DVD/CD, which features guest musicians Stu G (Delirious?) and Carl Albrecht (Paul Baloche), is available at “Rushing Waters”. A free chord chart for the song is available at “Rushing Waters” chord chart.
Dustin Smith is a husband and father of three young children. In addition to his own independent recordings and his forthcoming release with Integrity Music, Smith has been featured on collections including Integrity’s iWorship Now/Next double album.

GMC TV changes its name to UP

At the stroke of midnight as the calendar turned to Jun. 1, GMC TV began writing the latest chapter in its evolution as America’s leading television destination for uplifting entertainment when the network changed its name to UP. The fresh, new name will better communicate a clear sense of the network’s unique brand position, which has always been, and will continue to be, “Uplifting Entertainment.”

Along with the new name the network introduced a new URL, UPtv.com, and the company’s corporate name changed to UP Entertainment, LLC.

“The response to our new name has been phenomenally positive,” said Charley Humbard, president and CEO. “The beauty of UP is that it needs no explanation. Every hour of programming on UP is uplifting, inspiring and entertaining for the whole family. It captures the essence of our brand – uplifting entertainment – and will lend itself to many interesting and fun creative executions.”

Starting Jun. 1, viewers continued to see the great programming they have come to love along with a new logo and new on-air look. The introduction of UP will be supported with on-air image and cross-channel spots, a multi-platform marketing initiative and the launch of the on-air “Summer UP” campaign.

UP is the network’s most extensive step in the evolution of the brand since the network launched in 2004 as the Gospel Music Channel, which subsequently evolved to be known as GMC TV: “Uplifting Entertainment.” The UP concept was conceived as an upbeat, positive and playful way to communicate the network’s unique brand promise and position as the destination for the best in family friendly “Uplifting Entertainment.”

Women of Faith offers new level of worship and biblical depth at 2013 live events

 

 

The nation’s largest gathering of Christian women, Women of Faith, is taking its two-day live events to a new level this year with an expanded list of biblical Christian speakers, an emphasis on deeper worship with the addition of and Third Day, and a new focus on bringing scriptural depth to modern life applications.

The 2013 tour theme, ‘Believe God Can Do Anything,’ was created to inspire women to let go of the pain, planning and stress by handing their lives over to the only One who can make anything possible, God.

Multiple studies show that women experience greater levels of stress than men on average, including work, home life, major life events, and social and economic concerns, which, if not managed, can lead to post traumatic stress disorder, mental disorders, depression and other health problems.

“This year’s theme was created to refocus the minds of women, reminding them that we are not in control, God is, and through Him we can find peace, healing and restoration,” said Barry Walsh, VP of creative at Women of Faith.

The Believe God Can Do Anything tour will make stops in 24 cities across the U.S. starting August 2 in Oklahoma City, OK, and wrapping up in Hartford, CT, on Nov. 1. Each event runs a day and a half and includes a variety of speakers, such as Sheila Walsh, Christine Caine, Lisa Harper, Max Lucado, and Priscilla Shirer. Worship music will be led by Gateway Worship, home church of Kari Jobe and well-known worship songs such as “Revelation Song” and “Stay Amazed.”

Women of Faith is committed to helping woman plug into the local church. This year it has invited more local pastors than ever before to the speaking platform as a way to better help grow and develop ongoing relationships between the women who attend its events and the local church.

Women of Faith has also partnered with producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett to feature their series THE BIBLE, whose success made History Channel the top cable network, at this year’s events. Women of Faith will incorporate a special collection of film footage from
“The Bible” that will be woven throughout the event to bring a fresh creative element to the program.

Dara Maclean To Release Sophomore Album, Wanted, September 24

 

 

Fervent Records’ soulful vocalist Dara Maclean is scheduled to release her sophomore album, Wanted, on September 24. The album’s title track and lead single grabbed early attention jumping seven spots at radio to No. 30 on NCA chart this past week. Produced by Paul Mabury (All Sons & Daughters, Hillsong, Meredith Andrews), Wanted is the eagerly-awaited follow-up to Maclean’s debut album, You Got My Attention, which entered the iTunes Christian & Gospel Albums chart at No. 1 in 2011 and garnered her a spot as one of their “New Artists to Watch.”

For Maclean, both a passionate artist and advocate for the International Justice Mission, an organization that is pioneering the fight against human trafficking, this album is much more than just a compilation of songs. “This album is for those broken, the lost and the ones in need of rescue. It’s for me and it’s for them, whether ‘they’ are next door or half way across the world. This record is a reminder that through God’s grace and redemption, He has made us good enough, He sees us as ‘blameless.’ We’ve been forgiven and we can find the peace, satisfaction and rest we’re looking for in Him,” said Maclean. “This record is my mouthpiece to raise the volume of the already screaming heartbeat of the Father, crying ‘Set My People Free.’ When life hits in the hardest ways, and you need peace and you need an answer, let’s take Him at His word and together learn about truth, discover sustaining hope and put all of our trust in the only answer, God.”

 

“She genuinely cares for people and has a story to tell; she genuinely wants to see people changed,” said Mabury. “I heard a girl singing at the beginning…now I hear a woman singing.”

Sonically, Wanted reveals Maclean’s musical upbringing and love for powerful, soul-steeped vocalists from Etta James to Lauryn Hill.  This influence can be seen throughout the album that infuses her soaring vocals with modern pop and soul melodies thanks to the help of multi-talented producer Mabury. “Paul knows the world of worship and he’s a songwriter, a producer and one of the best drummers that I’ve heard,” said Maclean. “He is also extremely well-versed in the music that moves me. He has this backbone of soul and took the time to ‘get me’ and wanted to make music that was true to that.”

During the past two years Maclean, who embraces song writing equally as much as being a vocalist, wrote heavily in preparation for this album. She co-wrote each of the 12 tracks on Wantedand loved getting to write with some of her favorites including Paul Mabury, Jason Ingram (Brandon Heath, Bebo Norman), Dave Barnes (Blake Shelton, Bebo Norman) and Cindy Morgan (Amy Grant, Mark Schultz).

About Dara Maclean:

Powerful vocalist and songwriter Dara Maclean first sparked the music industry’s interest with her 2011 debut, You Got My Attention. The album introduced a powerful new voice in Christian pop, steeped in Motown and soul and beaming a heart for the broken and struggling. The LP reached the Top 10 on Billboard‘s Christian Albums chart, and album tracks “Suitcases” and “Free” each hit the Top 20 on Billboard Hot Christian Songs chart. “Suitcases” appeared on the 2012 installment of WOW Hits, celebrating Christian radio’s biggest songs, and You Got My Attentioncloser “Home” was included in The Bible: Music Inspired By The Epic Mini-Series, a companion to the smash History Channel series. The Texas-bred singer-songwriter earned a New Artist of the Year nomination in the 43rd Annual GMA Dove Awards, and spent nearly two years straight on the road with some of Christian music’s biggest names, including Casting Crowns and Newsong, and on major tours including Winter Jam and the KLOVE Acoustic Christmas Tour. Maclean has earned high critical praise throughout, NewReleaseTuesday including her among its Top 10 New Female Christian Singers in 2012, noting that “Dara displays the strongest vocals I’ve heard in years.” Maclean is also passionate about raising awareness and bringing an end to human trafficking and is an advocate for the International Justice Mission.

The band’s three-decade career boasts such defining songs as “The Christmas Shoes,” “Arise, My Love,” “Rescue,” and their 2012 hit, “The Same God.”

Dove Award winning artist Aaron Shust has been embraced by Christian radio since his debut project in 2006, which contained the mega-hit single “My Savior, My God” that rose to #1 on six charts. Shust’s last project, This Is What We Believe launched with the biggest song of his career, “My Hope Is In You,” which stayed at the top of the AC Monitored chart for 14 weeks.

At the GMA Awards in 2007, Shust was honored with three Dove Awards for Song of the Year (“My Savior, My God”), Songwriter of the Year, and New Artist of the Year.

With a contagious blend of pop, R&B, hip hop and rock, Royal Tailor is a high-energy band and music ministry reaching out to a new generation of students suffering from symptoms of a visionless life. In just four years, the group has performed more than 425 shows, including playing at the Nashville GRAMMY® Chapter’s Block Party stage alongside artists including Old Crow Medicine Show and The Civil Wars. Royal Tailor’s debut project, Black & White, received a 2012 GRAMMY® Award nomination for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album and produced the band’s first #1 radio single “Make A Move.”

For Chris and Jodi, Love & The Outcome is both a name and a literal life story. The duo sold their Winnipeg condo en route to a high-stakes musical road trip that has seen them criss-cross Canada, Liberia, the Philippines and China, winning over fans both emotionally and spiritually with their blend of effervescent pop. After signing to Word Records in 2012, they retreated to the mountains of Washington state to record their powerful debut, produced by Seth Mosley (Newsboys) along with Ben Glover (for King & Country) and David Garcia (TobyMac).
