Music


Kevin and I typically are not music-buyers; most of the cd's we own were gifts from my Mom! I have actually purchased two in the past year that I really enjoy. The first is Valley of Vision, from Sovereign Grace Ministries. The instrumentation and vocals are beautiful, and the lyrics are based on prayers of the Puritans. It was only $7, I think on the SG website. The second cd (that I am actually listening to right now) I bought at the True Woman Conference, and it's Keith and Kristyn Getty's In Christ Alone. They led worship during the conference. Their music is less 'worship'-genre, and more like modern hymns. The kids and I have been singing the first stanza to Speak, O Lord together before our Bible time together in the mornings.
Speak, O Lord as we come to You
To receive the food of Your holy Word
Take Your truth, plant it deep in us
Shape and fashion us in Your likeness
That the light of Christ might be seen in us
In our acts of love and our deeds of faith
Speak, O Lord and fulfil in us
All Your purposes for Your glory

We have that one and really enjoy it! Our church sings a lot of the Getty's music. :) Good stuff!
