That is a very cute song. The tempo took me back to my childhood for sure.Lol It reminded me of the harmonies of groups like the Statler Brothers and the Oak Ridge Boy - groups my parents listened to.

Oh my gosh. That was so beautiful! Great rendition. I found myself singing along to it (which is never pretty lol). A great classic for sure. I just LOVE those old church hymns.

And the verse is the one about the false Christians being paraded as trophies as if they're what Christianity represents.

it's my personal opinion, but I think Carrie's rendition is the most beautiful and passionate I've ever heard.

Ooooh, okay that one. Satan is the accuser of the brethren, (Rev 12:10) and a HUGE portion of his prosecution is in the court of public opinion. The "prize" is trying to keep the lost from running to the cross to enter a covenant with Jesus.

This one is so special to me too. I love live renditions when the band/singer go silent and you hear the chorus of thousands of voices praising God with the worship of their lips. It's breathtaking. I envision millions along with the host of angels singing these songs to Him personally in heaven. It will be the greatest concert in the universe, and it will never end. You know that feeling when your favorite concert is over??

It won't be that way in heaven, and His glory will fill us all and we'll sing all these songs and dance for Him on streets of gold. I know there is much work to do here, but MAN I want to be there now!!! We're aliens here, I want to be home!!!

S and F.

Be prepared to cry alot, but know God is always there even through this.

Building 429 - Always Lyrics (subtitle)



The line "He would have been free today, should read three today" His father kills him in a fit of rage. Because he was mad at his mother. This is a true story heaven forbid.

Last but CERTAINLY NOT least! Brooke Fraser of United singing "Hosanna". This is special to me is because that's what the crowds were singing to Jesus on Palm Sunday when He made his triumphal entry into Jerusalem at the Eastern gate. The ONLY time He allowed Himself to be presented as King of Kings during His earthly ministry.

But not last time, and as the opening lines go, we will see Him coming on the clouds with fire as KING. Hosanna to the King!

That is a very sweet song. Around the 3:20 mark, it reminded me of the poem Footprints in the Sand and how Jesus carries us in times of trouble.

Thanks so much for sharing.

Thanks for finding that verse for me! Also I love the songs your submitting. I'm not that great with contemporary songs so you're great at sharing what I don't know much about. LOL!

Here is one I'm actually mad at myself for forgetting. I don't know when it was originally composed but it was huge when I was a child. It's hard for me to listen to without tearing up:



ETA: And I'm so glad you guys are enjoying this thread! I am, too, and will probably bump it with songs as I come across them. lol We all need a little spirit boost every now and then.

Hi there Ashley


Here is one I found a few years back that really impressed me as a musician, that I passed along to a very close friend when she was going through a very high stress period. She tells me that even to this day, it's calming and grounding effect is amazing and that she often plays it just for fun.

I hope you all find it as enjoyable as we did.
