Royal Psalms album

Matt Searles latest album of psalms has just been released. From the River to the Ends of the Earth focuses on Jesus as King  and can be streamed and downloaded from here.  This album follows the previously released Now and Not Yet, which is well worth listening to.

The Royal Psalms and the ‘Lord is King’ Psalms speak of Christ’s matchless excellence, his just rule, his prosperous reign, his perfect character – painting in fresh colours our king in all his beauty. Through these settings of those (and other) psalms, may our hearts may be lifted to him, in renewed adoration of the one who will rule ‘from the river to the ends of the earth.’ (Ps 72:8)

Facing a Task Unfinished

Facing a task unfinished
That drives us to our knees
A need that, undiminished
Rebukes our slothful ease
We, who rejoice to know Thee
Renew before Thy throne
The solemn pledge we owe Thee
To go and make Thee known

Where other lords beside Thee
Hold their unhindered sway
Where forces that defied Thee
Defy Thee still today
With none to heed their crying
For life, and love, and light
Unnumbered souls are dying
And pass into the night

We bear the torch that flaming
Fell from the hands of those
Who gave their lives proclaiming
That Jesus died and rose
Ours is the same commission
The same glad message ours
Fired by the same ambition
To Thee we yield our powers Continue reading

Free Psalms

Thanks to Steve Jeffery for the heads-up on this new recording of 11 of the Psalms from Matt Searles, sung by Miriam Jones.  As God’s people we need to take the Psalms  to heart, to meditate on them, let the shape and mould us, and of course to sing them.

Matt has therefore done us a great service with this new album Now and Not Yet: Acoustic Psalms.  What’s more, for the month of November the album is available for download for FREE here .

New Songs for Saplings

Just bought the recently released Questions with Answers Vol. 4: The Word of God, CD by Dana Dirksen for our kids.  We’ve already got the other 3 volumes as I mentioned here and parents will really enjoy these Bible based songs as much as the younger members of the family.
