Rebecca St. James' New CD - I Will Praise You!

I'm delighted to have the opportunity to share with you Rebecca St.James' new CD - I Will Praise YouThis CD releases on April 5, 2011, and features a new collection of ten worship songs Rebecca terms "her most personal worship recording to date." She says, "In this season of new music, God has been reminding me… ‘It’s not about you! Don’t get caught up in the details and start thinking… ‘this is my new album with my face on it…it’s a representation of who I am and where I am creatively.’  God encouraged me to forget that and remember: ‘This is about Jesus!  This is about praising Him and inviting other people into that journey with you.” My mission statement and focus is, ‘Get out of the way, Rebecca, and just let people see Jesus.  It’s all about God.”

I found the songs to have powerful messages with themes we can all identify with. The lyrics are sure to touch all who listen to them and the music will have you singing along. I especially enjoyed the song, "Shine Your Glory Down" - the lyrics are tremendously powerful - "When I run, lead me. When I sleep, keep me. When I wake, Father, speak with me. Oh Majesty Light of the world. Light up this day. God, I long to see Your face. Oh, shine Your glory down. Light of the world beyond display. And every heart will sing Your praise. Oh, shine Your glory down. With each breath, fill me. With each step, free me. When I love, Father, love through me. Oh Majesty. Light up this day. God, I long to see Your face. Oh, shine Your glory down. Light of the world beyond display. And every heart will sing Your praise. Oh, shine Your glory down. I do not walk in darkness. I will not live in fear. I walk in Your light. Light of the world. Light up this day. God, I long to see Your face. Oh, shine Your glory down. Light of the world beyond display. And every heart will sing Your praise. Oh, shine Your glory down." This song - and all the others - absolutely give parents some very powerful messages to talk about with their children.
