Music Monday: Bleed the same

Today’s music selection was recommended by Matt, my co-host of The Eagle & Child. This is “Bleed the same” by Mandisa:

We all bleed the same
We’re more beautiful when we come together
We all bleed the same
So tell me why, tell me why we’re divided

Woke up today
Another headline, another innocent life is taken
In the name of hatred
So hard to take
And if we think that it’s all good
Then we’re mistaken
‘Cause my heart is breakin’

Are you left, are you right
Pointing fingers, taking sides
When are we gonna realize

If we’re gonna fight, let’s fight for each other
If we’re gonna shout, let love be the cry
We all bleed the same
So tell me why, tell me why we’re divided

Tell me who are we
To judge someone by the kind of clothes they’re wearin’
Or the color of their skin
Are you black, are you white
Aren’t we all the same inside
Father, open our eyes to see

Only love can drive out all the darkness
What are we fightin’ for
We were made to carry one another
We were made for more

We all bleed the same
We’re more beautiful when we come together
We all bleed the same
So tell me why, tell me why we’re divided
If we’re gonna fight, let’s fight for each other
If we’re gonna shout, let love be the cry
We all bleed the same
Let’s stand united, let’s stand united

Music Monday: It is well with my soul

If ever more proof was needed that Audrey Assad sings like an angel…

When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul

It is well
With my soul
It is well, it is well with my soul

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, o my soul

Music Monday: Love will heal

Today is another song from PJ Anderson, a song which was performed at the March For Life in Washington DC last year:

Who knew there’d be a day
Where we’d have to fight for this
To be the voice of righteousness
To speak for those unheard

For all our beating hearts
Began in the same love
No one should take away from us
The simple right to live

Hear our voice
We are one
We will fight until we’ve won

Love will heal every heart
We will fight until we’ve won
Until we’ve won

Our history is burdened by all the violence
The hatred and defiance of
The love for which we’re made

But we are here to be the ears for the broken
The voice for those unspoken
The future can be peace

Only love can change hearts
Let your peace be the spark

 

Music Monday: Divine Mercy Chaplet

Have you ever wondered what the Divine Mercy Chaplet would be like if it was set to music? Well, thanks to Matt Maher, wonder no more…

Music Monday: Wounded Healer

As Audrey Assad’s new album is set to drop, she’s released another new single, “Wounded Healer”. It’s a wonderful track, even aside from the fact that it’s also the title of a Henri Nouwen book. Man, does this woman have the ability to read my soul…

Image of the Invisible
In our wounds we feel you near
God of heaven in flesh and bone
By your wounds we shall be healed

Wounded healer, we give our hearts to you x2

Arms stretched out not to part the seas
but to open up the grave
Blood poured out not for war, but peace
And to show us God’s own face.

No fire; no fury
just death into life
Over and over
Til all things are right

Music Monday: Piano Concerto No. 3

We haven’t had any classical music here on Music Monday’s in quite some time! In an effort to correct that, here is Piano Concerto No. 3 from Rachmaninov, performed by Russian pianist Olga Kern:

Music Monday: Make Me New

A rather different entry this week, the rather delicate and thoughtful “Make me new” with Pat D’Angelo:

I’ve played the game before chasing after fame and needing more
Don’t you know you showed me that I need you?
I need you, you’re making me new…

I don’t know what to do but trust in you, trust in you alone
You make me more than I could ever make myself
More than I could make myself, you make me new…

Your love for me is greater than I’ve ever known
Your presence fills my heart and makes me fill I’m not alone
I need you, you’re making me new…
