Dear Listener,

It’s been a busy year! Our audience has increased hugely – the YouTube channel now has over 12,000 Subscribers and total video views currently stands at 1.5 million! Amongst the growth though with some help from friends and family I’ve been in touch with more artists to bring you another free summer mixtape and here it is.

It’s not as long as last years, at just 11 tracks but I’d rather deliver a shorter mixtape of top quality music than fill it with anything I could get permission for!

Like last years mixtape I hope you are introduced to new artists through this compilation. I’ve come to know some of these artists really well whilst putting this together and by speaking to them throughout the year and I can honestly say there are some great people featured on this album who truly worship Christ with everything that they have to give. So, check out the poster that’s included and get in touch with the artists’ through Facebook and Twitter etc. and tell them how much you appreciate their music, knowing these guys most of them will probably even find the time to reply to you! (Then go download the rest of their work!)

Be encouraged by their music, share it with friends not just because you secretly hope they’ll become Christians through it but because it’s simply a collection of great music! Enjoy the diverse mix of genres, the different ways that people praise God and the different stories people have to tell.

My prayer this year is for this mixtape to spread further than before, to reach Christians throughout the world who need encouraging, Christians who wish there was great music for a great God, Christians who need a new song to sing and soundtrack to dance to.

A huge thanks to all the artists involved, for supporting the blog and the work I do and wanting to be part of this small but influential mixtape.

And finally thanks to you the listener for the continued support to both the blog and the artists we feature, whether it’s simply by liking a link on Facebook, sharing the blog with friends or donating money so that we can give more copies of the mixtape away. Thank you for making this possible.

Lyrics:
Every day at dusk I chase the sunset, sunset
Looking for a glimpse of Heaven’s skies
I’ve been given a taste for something
That nothing in this world can satisfy
But I know that a time is coming
When I will be in glorious delight

I know I will run through Heaven’s brilliant streets of gold
Shouting “Hallelujah, Christ alone!”
I know I will dance and sing and bow before the throne
This I know! Oh oh!

Every day at dawn I chase the sunrise, sunrise
Looking for a hint of Heaven’s light
I’ve been given a taste for something
That nothing in this world can satisfy
But I know that a time is coming
When I will be in glorious delight

I know I will run through Heaven’s brilliant streets of gold
Shouting “Hallelujah, Christ alone!”
I know I will dance and sing and bow before the throne
This I know! Oh oh!

Lyrics:
They say be careful and look before you take your first step
Love is so dangerous you don’t wanna have regrets
I might be in over my head
You won’t leave me for dead, no

Aye, holding on to every word that You say
Courage comes and goes in waves, but with You I’m just always so brave on the wild side

It’s dangerous to be in love but I like it on the wild side, the wild side’s
Dangerous for hearts to touch, but I want You to hold mine, there’s no denying that I’m
Dangerous with you. I’m so Dangerous with you. You got me feelin’

Feelin like I’m runnin from the police how my heart stay rushin
Light up the dark light up this art you know it’s me why you askin me questions
I know its Him cause He given me life I know we win in the end no surprise
Pen in my hand are you down for the ride it might get wild we like that side

Oh we got it so I flaunt it love on repeat like its chronic
Word on the street is we’re toxic Infiltrating other’s mindsets
I’m a diamond got me shinin’ I’m the branch and You’re the vine and
Loves so fierce got the heart of a lion veils been pierced so it’s hard to stay silent

Aye, holding on to every word that You say
Courage comes and goes in waves, but with You I’m just always so brave on the wild side

It’s dangerous to be in love but I like it on the wild side, the wild side’s
Dangerous for hearts to touch, but I want You to hold mine, there’s no denying that I’m
Dangerous with you. I’m so Dangerous with you. You got me feelin’

In the darkness, You stretched out
In the darkness, You stretched out Your mercy hand

 

God Your mercy flowed out
Through Your veins

 

Purity and love were burning in Your blood
When You leapt out of this world into the deep
Through all hell’s blazing guns
You showed the world your love
Rescuing the lost
You rescued me
