I bought Matt a CD for Christmas last year. It was a bit of a gamble. I had never listened to it before, I was banking on the fact that we own a previous album from the band and we both love it. The gamble paid off. Late summer and autumn has been spent settling into the music, then soaking it up and basking in its greatness as we listened to it over and over again. I think it's going to be one of my favourite albums ever.
Track list I'm Not Fine ("I told you I was sorry, doesn't feel like it's enough") My God, My God ("Please be not far away from me, I have no source of help but thee") I Know That My Redeemer Lives ("He lives, my Prophet, Priest, and King") Rice and Beans ("Worn through shoes, cheque may bounce") High ("When I see you take the same sweet steps you used to take") Remedy ("He is the one who has come and is coming again, He is the remedy") Would You Come and See Me In New York? ("I'm not mad, the past is through") My Best Days ("Those are my best days when I shake with fear") Lo He Comes With Clouds Descending ("The tokens of his passion still his dazzling body bears") Draw Nigh & Take the Body of the Lord ("Offered was He for greatest and for least") The Strife is O'er, the Battle Won ("Hallelujah!") God Be With You Until We Meet Again ("With his sheep securely fold you") Nature's Goodnight ("Trees now dressed in faded brown")
The album is available for purchase here, it's a steal at US$8 for the mp3s or US$10+shipping for a physical album to be delivered to your front door. I know that my redeemer lives. Happy Easter.
