Lion and the Lamb (Leeland//Bethel Cover)


No Comments

I’ve found this song so helpful to sing that I thought I’d record a rough office cover version! [WARNING] I’m about 6bpm too fast 😉

Leeland and Bethel have brought together a simple but very beautiful blend of melody, lyric and confession that simply blows me away.

“For who can stop the Lord Almighty?”

Leeland’s new album “Invisible” is available in the link in the YouTube description box.

Mercy Mercy

Occasionally I’ll hear a lyric in a song of worship that will make me wince. Brooke Fraser’s bridge section from Hosanna is a good example of this where she pens,

“Heal my heart and make it clean…break my heart for what breaks Yours”.

We sing, we follow suit, we play…but, really? Break my heart – really? Lord, I want to feel deep heart-break…really?

I winced recently when I heard a lyric clearly from the costly, private world of Matt Crocker and Joel Houston from the Zion track Mercy Mercy – and I wince every time I hear it and wince even more when I have the courage to sing it.
