Enjoy the movement of this playlist made up of favourite tracks for this season of Lent from the ehills community.
I am sure there will be a few additions over the season.
You can follow this list on apple music here.
Some tracks have to be purchased but well worth it!
A Spotify version of ‘Lent Listening 2017’ is on its way by the weekend. Look out for it.
||Future of Forestry
awesome lyrics. awesome rest. awesome God.
|I Still Have to Go
||I was told Tyson Motsenbocker wrote this album as a reflection on the passing away of his Mother who was also his hero. He has created a beautiful album as a tribute to her life, ‘Letters to Lost Loves’ is sometimes sad, sometimes haunting, always beautiful. This is one of the happier songs, enjoy!
|Ghost of a King
||The Gray Havens
||Brilliant, powerful song that speaks of the mystery of resurrection and new life when we truly thirst and go beyond ourselves.
|Higher Love (Acoustic)
||I still enjoy the original, but this cover is striped right back and very delicate, it really brings the message of the song to the fore. I love the message of a ‘higher love’ and I believe love is something we need to elevate into our awareness all the time. Something from heaven that needs to made flesh here and now in us.
|Lay it All Down
||Will Reagan & United Pursuit
||Jesus is waiting for us to lay down our burdens this lent season so he can speak life into our true identity and close the door on false accusation & hopelessness. This is going to be a season of restoration. Who the son sets free is free indeed!
|Blinded by Your Grace pt.1.
||Stormzy hustled his own way in to this playlist somehow.
A song in two beautiful parts.
|Nearer my God to Thee
||A beautiful rendition of a classic hymn that draws my heart to God.
||A creation story of our now, what is God unfolding in us during Lent and how is it opening us up more to Him.
||La La Land Soundtrack
||This movie was colour in a dull season for me. This track is like waking up to something new.
|Mention of Your Name
||I have been listening to this song on repeat since I heard it! Just the whisper of Jesus name changes everything. May we understand the power of the name of Jesus this Easter .
||The title means summer summer and it’s a song about summer returning and the sun rising and the animals playing.
A song of hope.
|Night has passed/Morning has Broken
||Just one of the many ‘Brilliant” songs from the aptly named band off their latest album. A great reminder as we start each day and a fantastic ode to the Cat Stevens classic.
||Tedeschi Truck Band
||A song about journeying that I am loving this season.
|Blinded by Your Grace pt. 2
||Gangsta praise everytime.
||My fave line in this song which continues to sustain me in all things is “His perfect love could not be overcome”. Love wins!
|The End of Me
||Catchy, simple, reminder that the fruit of the Spirit comes as we let go during those times when God brings us to the end of ourselves.
Tendons Bellarive This track is a tour de force of an epic song – just like lent! Norman A.
