Irish born Tom McConnell, also known for being the frontman of The Ramshackle Orchestra, today released his latest solo musical offering with his single ‘Honeybee’. On the B-track ‘Old Hymns/New Hearts, we hear Tom singing praises to the Lord with his folk flair and Irish charm, telling a different love story to the ones usually heard on Valentine’s Day. Great theology and even greater songwriting makes this a brilliant indie worship track from an exciting singer who consistently delivers.
When I was lost my guilty heart was leading me astray,
I put my trust in idols that shall falter and decay.
Whilst in the depths of my despair the sinless Saviour died
And bore the wrath for all my sin when He was crucified.
O what a gift so freely given and grace so undeserved,
That Jesus came from Heavʼn to earth to serve and not be served.
For all the wrong that I have done my Lord has paid the price
And reconciled me to His throne my Jesusʼ sacrifice.
The power of our glorious God the grave could not contain,
Death is defeated, once for all, because He rose again!
Jesus you and you alone sustain me and suffice,
Alleluia! Iʼm forgiven and made alive with Christ.
Alleluia! He has loved us so abundantly,
Brought from death to life because my God has ransomed me!
Here’s an older track of his ‘Riches’ performed live with a loop pedal.
