After hundreds of hours of preparation, Sovereign Grace Music's newest album, 'From Age To Age', is now available! It's a collection of 14 songs (15 if you count the instrumental prelude), that were inspired by or drawn from the great hymn writers of the past.
Here's how Bob Kauflin describes it in the liner notes:How does one define a hymn?It's hard to say, but most hymns are characterized by theologically rich lyrics, symmetrical rhythmic patters in the verse lyrics, and a tune that congregations find easy to sing. At the heart of hymn-writing is a desire to create a song that will endure for generations.Inspired by the hymn writers of the past, we've written 14 new hymns for this album. Some songs are old hymn lyrics set to a new tune. For others, we used the thematic structure of a hymn as the basis for an entirely new song.And in some cases we've written completely new hymns that attempt to communicate the inexhaustible riches of God's word and the Gospel through the simple elements of words and melodies.Above each lyric, different songwriters have shared thoughts on the background or meaning of the song. We hope you enjoy their stories. More importantly, we hope these songs open your heart and mind to the song that never changes from age to age: the song of the redeemed to their matchless Redeemer, Jesus Christ.
Over the past few weeks this album has been ringing out in our home. I can wholeheartedly recommend it to you. If you'd like to hear more or purchase the album then head over to the new Sovereign Grace Music
