My expectations were easily met yesterday by the Dave (Crowder, that is)

25 09 2007

My expectations were easily met yesterday by the Dave at last night’s Remedy CD release party. It was a refreshing worship experience that I greatly needed (plus, it allowed me to take a break from studying Hebrew). Sometimes I forget the fact that the people of God actually have a wonderful message that is expressed through life and through art. David reminded me of this fact last night. The music and lyrics off of Dave’s new CD are absolutely amazing and refreshing to hear. The CD has a purpose that is rarely seen in Christian music today. We need more artists like him to express the beauty of a life of faith. To my mind, few bands can capture this beauty like the David Crowder Band. I’m going to continue ruminating over this CD (I’ve only been able to listen to it once all the way through), and I’ll post some more thoughts later. In the mean time, chew on these lyrics from the last track entitled “Surely We Can Change.”

and the problem is this
we were bought with a kiss
but the cheek still turned
even when it wasn’t hit
and i don’t know
what to do with a love like that
and i don’t know
how to be a love like that

when all the love in the world
is right here among us and hatred too
so we must choose what our hands will do

where there is pain
let there be grace
where there is suffering
bring serenity
for those afraid
help them be brave
where there is misery
bring expectancy

and surely we can change
surely we can change
something

and the problem it seems
is with you and me
not the love who came
to repair everything
and i don’t know
what to do with a love like that
and i don’t know
how to be a love like that

when all the love in the world
is right here among us and hatred too
so we must choose what our hands will do

where there is pain
let us bring grace
where there is suffering
bring serenity
for those afraid
let us be brave
where there is misery
let us bring them relief

and surely we can change
surely we can change
surely we can change
something

oh the world’s about to change
the whole world’s about to change
the whole world’s about to change
the whole world’s about to change
the whole world’s about to change
the whole world’s about to change
