Psalms


Genre: Electronica, House, Synthpop, Psalms

“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

Genre: Rock, Worship

Taken from Sojourn’s 2009 album ‘Over The Grave’, this song is heavily inspired by Isaac Watt’s metrical version of Psalm 21. As the band describes on their blog, the lyrics on this track were written around the opening riff, while the rest of the song continued changing even during the recording stage. The resulting product though is a deliciously groovy worship song which the band hopes “challenges you and inspires you to remember that the only true Warrior has defeated Satan.  Victory is certain and our eternal destiny is secure.”

Genre: Acoustic, Worship

This song is taken from The Sing Team’s 2012 release Oh! Great Is Our God EP. As referenced in the song title the lyrics of this tune were inspired by the words of Psalm 42, all about our soul longing for more of God, of which we often are most aware of during the times we feel far from God. A truly beautiful song flooded with God’s word that speaks so directly to us.

“Why are you downcast, oh my soul?
Why so disturbed within me?”
