#MusicLove: Passion’s Newest will have all eyes and ears on Jesus

To be honest, I’m not a big fan of straight worship music. Yet, with Hillsong United and Hillsong Young and Free going mainstream on Christian radio stations worldwide, worship music has really stepped up it’s game and nowadays, it’s basically a more focal version of contemporary Christian pop, rock, and even rap.

The songs were recorded LIVE at Passion Conference earlier this year as more than 55,000 students gathered in Atlanta’s Georgia Dome. Students in attendance united in sponsoring more than 7,000 children (the most to ever be sponsored at one event) through Compassion International fulfilling all sponsorships in El Salvador, Rwanda, Tanzaniaand Indonesia as well as hundreds in Bolivia.

Passion’s previous release Salvation’s Tide Is Rising debuted at No. 3 on Billboard’s Digital Albums Chart and No. 6 on Billboard’s Top Albums Chart.

A dome filled with hands lifted in praise. Thousands of poverty-stricken children receiving life-altering sponsorships. A mission to see the world changed for the better. This is Passion.

The newest live album Worthy Of Your Name, will deliver songs from top-selling artists Chris Tomlin, Crowder, Matt Redman, Kristian Stanfill and more, featuring songs recorded at the 2017 Passion Conference in Atlanta. Join Passion in this heart cry as they proclaim God’s love and declare that He is indeed worthy of His name.

Song By Song Review

Glorious Day: A melodic guitar strumming keeps the rhythm with male vocals as this song starts in until the singer shouts, “You called my name and I ran out of that grave; out of the darkness into your glorious day.” Lyrically, this praise song causes those that listen and sing along to put their faith in the resurrection power that lives in every believer.

Worthy of Your Name: The title track features soft vocals alongside an acoustic guitar causing the listener to put their faith in the name of Jesus.

How Great Is Your Love: Musically what stands out to me about this track is the piano accompaniment throughout while the focus is on God’s love in this praise song according (1 John 4:19).

Build My Life: This is such a pure heart seeking after God type worship song. The chorus really speaks to the daily life mission of any believer in Christ:

Holy, there is no one like You
There is none beside You
Open up my eyes in wonder
Show me who You are
And fill me with Your heart
And lead me in Your love to those around me

Holy Ground: This song reminds me of a contemporary worship song with the intro instrumental sounding like a Steven Curtis Chapman song. The lead singer sounds vocally like Kari Jobe while singing:

Show us Your glory
Show us Your glory
In wonder and surrender we fall down
Show us Your glory
Show us Your glory
Let every burning heart be holy ground

Heart Abandoned: soft vocals make this song come off like a David Psalm.

Forgiven: Featuring Christian rock band Crowder has the listener putting their faith in Isaiah 43:25 which states,

“I, even I, am he who blots out
your transgressions, for my own sake,
and remembers your sins no more.”

Your Cross Changes Everything: Featuring Matt Redman, this track has a focal point on the redemption found at the foot of the cross.

A cross that changes everything
And a love that sets the captives free
A hope that ressurected me
And the power of God
For all who believe

This We Know: Christian Rock musicality accompany lyrics with themes of verses James 4:7 and 1 John 5:4.

This we know
We will see the enemy run
This we know
We will see the victory come
We hold on to every promise You ever made
Jesus, You are unfailing

RuleFeaturing both Crowder and Hillsong United, this is my favorite song on the entire album because it’s both catchy and lyrically will have you running around the sanctuary in praise to our King.

God of Calvary: Featuring Chris Tomlin, this concludes the live songs off the album by calling out our victory in Christ while praising Jesus for his ultimate sacrifice.

By His wounds I am set free
By His blood I’ve been redeemed
The great divide He crossed for me
Oh, praise the God of Calvary.
