Music Monday – Found

Aaron Ivey, another new artist (to me anyway – Sarah found his website), has a new album out called Between the Beauty & Chaos.  “The new full-length album centers around God’s faithfulness and beauty, and the church’s response to injustice, poverty, and orphans. The 10 song album reflects a heart for the Kingdom of God here and now, between the beauty and the chaos” (from http://www.aaronivey.com).  Here is Found, from that album.

Jesus, healer of brokenness
Savior, the fixer of troubled souls
Redeemer, you’re turning my eyes to thee
Mighty God, you’re just and merciful

Oh God of beauty and grace
You are my resting place
All of my life is found in You
You’ve taken my brokenness
Made me whole once again
All of my life is found in You
I’m found in You

All my security, my destiny
What lies ahead is found in you
All my hopes and dreams, my thoughts unseen
All my wants are found in you
What I dread and fear, all that weighs me down
All my trust is found in You
You’re my sustaining breath, all that gives me strength
All life-giving is found in You

  1. Hey, you forgot to say who introduced you this new artist 🙂

  2. Oops – sorry! 🙂 Fixed. 🙂

  3. I like it, but my problem is that most “worship” music today all sounds the same… Most of the music seems to be mimicking Coldplay circa Rush of Blood – X&Y. But since I really like that style (as well as many others), I like the music. I just would like to see more Christian musicians/singers make more original music. OK, I’ll get off my soapbox now 😉

  4. I completely agree. That’s one reason why I like music by the Keith & Kristyn Getty – original, theologically sound AND good music.
