Leeland songs + poverty

February 14, 2008 Leave a comment

I stumbled upon some great videos by a newer Christian group called Leeland.  They’re very deep, passionate and “present.”  I also saw them in concert last year at an Aquire the Fire youth conference.  I fresh and renewing sound to the Christian mainstream.

The first video/song is Leeland’s “Tears of the Saints with a collage of today’s poverty [dedicated to Karl Marx, spokesman for the poor, & Contemporary Philosophy class].  The video (and included lyrics) was put together by a Baptist minister.  There are others on YouTube, but I like this one.

The second video/song is Leeland’s “Sound of Melodiessimply a great sound.

This last video is Leeland in concert with a moment of Scripture & “How Great Thou Art.”  — indeed.

Group 1 Crew + Forgive Me (song)

February 14, 2008 Leave a comment

It looks like Thursdays are going to be my YouTube & christian music post day.  I’m not a huge Christian hip-hop fan, but when I hear something good, it’s worth noting (especially if it can hold its weight with greats like TobyMac, Grits & KJ-52).  I saw newcomer Group 1 Crew perform at the Winter Jam Christian Music Festival at UM last month and I still can’t get 4000 people singing this chorus out of my head.  This is “Forgive Me.”  [Lyrics at LyricsMode.com]

Behind the Song:
This song was birthed after a deep time of prayer in which we discovered the need for understanding how God viewed us in the light of his forgiveness. So many times as humans we like to place humanistic qualities on God simply because we can’t comprehend how He can love such unlovable creatures…and yet He still does. This song gives every listener the courage to believe that with God, it’s never too late to be forgiven. When you embrace this grace He’s made available to us, there’s nothing you ever need to fear. No valley in your life is permanent…” – Group 1 Crew
