Lyrics:
If I leave here would you go with me
Where nobody can find, we can run and hide
From the shadow of the devils tree
Jump with me let’s take a dive

To the deep deep blue
To the deep deep
To the deep deep

I feel like Falling
To the deep deep blue
Where our fears are far away
Just me and you yeah
Falling
To the deep deep
Where we can breathe again
I’ll love you till the very end

I won’t let them take your soul
I’m gonna fight for your life, I will fight
Take my hand and don’t let go
Out of the dark and into the light

Lyrics:
I was not made to live without You Jesus
My heart will never find
A love that frees like Yours does
You sealed me with Your Ghost
Now there’s no more loneliness
Your love has made it’s choice
And I am whole because of it

There’s so much freedom and life
In Your presence
It’s where I come alive
In Your presence

You hold my heart inside Your strong hands
You’ve loved me in and out
It’s more than I can stand
I can never find the words
Big enough to express
With You there’s always more
Forever endless

Your Spirit’s bringing us together
Your love’s infused in me forever
You fill me up with so much pleasure
And now I can’t keep my heart from lovin’
I can’t keep my heart from lovin’ You
Yeah

And now I can’t keep my heart from lovin’
I can’t keep my heart from lovin’ You

Lyrics:
Devastation
Oh, this house been laid low
Every window been cracked, and I’ve tried
But I just can’t keep out the coldDesperation
Oh, this soul been laid low
All of these changes that I can’t afford
That I can’t ignore

It’s not over now
Lift your eyes to the dawn
Oh, it’s comin’ on

A light has come
To this house that crumbled to the ground
And the morning shows
There’s still hope

Sweet consolation
Bringin’ that comfort to my soul
Let this heart be unbroken in ways
That I’ve never known, oh, but now I can know

It’s not over now
Lift your eyes to the dawn
It’s comin’ onOh, a light has come
To this house that crumbled to the ground
And the morning shows
There’s still hope

All of these bones, so tired and worn
All of my memories are burned out and torn
But that light kept comin’ on
And all of my memories are of beauty now
The beauty of light, pourin’ into every room of this house
Shinin’ all that darkness out

Oh, a light has come
To this house that crumbled to the ground
And the morning shows
Oh, it shows
A light has come
To this house that crumbled to the ground
And the morning shows
There’s still hope

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!

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,
