Lyrics:
What fortune lies beyond the stars
Those dazzling heights too vast to climb
I got so high to fall so far
But I found heaven as love swept low

My heart beating, my soul breathing
I found my life when I laid it down
Upward falling, spirit soaring
I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground

What treasure waits within Your scars
This gift of freedom gold can’t buy
I bought the world and sold my heart
You traded heaven to have me again

My heart beating, my soul breathing
I found my life when I laid it down
Upward falling, spirit soaring
I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground x3

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.


In Christ,

Lyrics:
(Verse 1)
I once was dead in sin
Alone and hopeless,
A child of wrath I walked
Condemned in darkness,

But Your mercy brought new life
And in Your love and kindness,
Raised me up with Christ
And made me righteous.

(Chorus)
You have bought me back
With the riches of,
Your amazing grace
And relentless love.
I’m made alive forever,
With You, life forever
By Your grace I’m saved,
By Your grace I’m saved.

(Verse 2)
Lord, You are the light,
That broke the darkness.
You satisfy my soul,
When I am heartless.

If ever I forget
My true identity,
Show me who I am,
And help me to believe.

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
My sin has been erased,
I’ll never be the same.
My sin has been erased,
I’ll never be the same.

(Chorus)

“After springing on to the scene with a remix of Hillsong United’s Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) included on The White Album, HXLY KXSS (pronounced “holy kiss”) now releases his first original track featuring vocals from Emily Swingler. Influences from artists such as Bondax, Snakehips, Flume and Cosmo’s Midnight are clear on this upbeat but chilled house track, yet the song carves its own unique vibe through the lyrical content. The chorus of Only For You is heavily inspired from verses of Psalm 25 often including direct quotes while the rest of the lyrics tell a more personal side to the relationship spoken of throughout the song.”

Lyrics:
Do You remember

When we met in ’98?

You took my hand

Held it tight and kept me safe

Hold me close, keep me near

Though I was lost I’m now right here

Oh my soul sings only for You

Teach me Your path, lead me in the truth

Remember not the sins of my youth

Now my soul sings only for You

Do you remember

When I turned my back on You?

I was hiding in the shadows

But Your light kept shining through

Hold me close, keep me near

Though I was lost I’m now right here

Oh my soul sings only for You

Teach me Your path, lead me in the truth

Remember not the sins of my youth

Now my soul sings only for You

Do You remember

When I came running back home?

Dirty rags washed clean

You’ve made me white as snow

Hold me close, keep me near

Though I was lost I’m now right here

Oh my soul sings

Oh my soul sings

Oh my soul sings

Oh my…

Oh my soul sings only for You

Teach me Your path, lead me in the truth

Remember not the sins of my youth

Now my soul sings only for You
