I’ve never been one to jump on the Hillsongs United bandwagon, but after having this cd for a few weeks, i’ve listened to it nearly every single day, and don’t know if i’ve ever been so ministered to by one cd. ok, that’s a pretty extreme recommendation, but I really love this album.
One thing that United did really well with this one is that every song sounds like you’re standing in the middle of a thousand-plus worshippers. For most of the songs, you hardly hear the lead singer, but instead the voices of the crowds worshiping along. I think it really captures the heart of our generation, in a voice that is desperately seeking the work of God to be magnified. It’s a beautiful thing.
(the DVD is also quite amazing in itself. I was really challenged in my own ministry just hearing about how United was birthed out of hungry hearts that simply loved the youth around them.)
A thousand times I’ve failed
Still Your mercy remains And should I stumble again
I’m caught in Your grace
Everlasting, your light will shine when all else fades
Never ending, Your glory goes beyond all fame
And the cry of my heart
Is to bring You praise
From the inside out
Lord my soul cries out
In my life be lifted high
In our world be lifted high
In our love be lifted high …
