Worship Music

A close friend of mine introduced me to some music I was unfamiliar with and I just had to share . . .

Upward the Bob Kauflin Hymns project. If you click on the link you can hear previews of the music as well.

My favorite right now is Debtor to Mercy:

A debtor to mercy alone
Of covenant mercy I sing
I come with Your righteousness on
My humble off'ring to bring
The judgments of Your holy law
With me can have nothing to do
My Savior's obedience and blood
Hide all my transgressions from view

The work which Your goodness began
The arm of Your strength will complete
Your promise is yes and amen
And never was forfeited yet
The future or things that are now
No power below or above
Can make You Your purpose forego
Or sever my soul from Your love

My name from the palms of Your hands
Eternity will not erase
Impressed on Your heart it remains
In marks of indelible grace
Yes I, to the end will endure
Until I bow down at Your throne
Forever and always secure
A debtor to mercy alone.


I am so grateful that my security and salvation rests in a merciful, loving God and not my own "righteous" acts. What peace!

Valley of Vision is one of my favorites. It's a song and name of the cd. My friend's son is married to Bob Kauflin's daughter. Small world. I used to go to the church where he speaks sometimes. But that was a long time ago. Get Valley of Vision. His daughter Megan sings on it. Track 4, I think. Really wonderful music.

Thanks for the tip, Courtney. We had some free downloads so I picked a few from this CD. I will definitely keep my eye out for that one if more freebies or gift cards come my way. So worshipful and peaceful, I love it!
