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

prayer + Kendall Payne

February 1, 2008 1 comment

A great song by Kendall Payne (one of my favorite Christian vocalist) that focuses on what real prayer is all about, appropriately titled “Pray” from her latest album, “Grown.”  Light guitar, soft vocals, profound meaning, worth posting:

I will pray for you now, for you have been my faithful friends,
While the road we walk is difficult indeed.
I couldn’t not ask for more than what you’ve already been,
Only that you would say these prayers for me.

May your heart break enough that compassion enters in,
May your strength all be spent upon the weak.
All the castles and crowns you build and place upon your head,
May they all fall, come crashing down around your feet.

Kendall PayneMay you find every step to be harder than the last,
So your character grows greater each stride.
May your company be of humble insignificance,
May your weakness be your only source of pride.

What you dooo unto others,
May it all be done to you.
May you meeeet the One who made us,
And see Him smile when life is through.

May your bleeessings be many,
But not what … you hoped they’d be.
And when you looook upon the broken,
May mercy show you what you could not see.

May you never be sure of any plans you desire,
But you’d learn to trust the plan He has for you.
May your passions be tried and tested in the holy fire,
May you fight with all your life for what is true.

I have prayed for you now all my dear and faithful friends,
But what I wish is more than I could ever speak.
As the way wanders on I’ll long to see you once again,
Until then, would you pray these prayers for me?
Oh, that you would praaay for me.
