Audrey Assad's Album - brilliant!

Just a few days ago a new album was born. The album is absolutely brilliant!

So much of Audrey’s Assad's first album is completed by it — the questions asked in The House You’re Building are answered in Heart. The lyrics are just as probing and provoking:

Don’t lie to yourself
O my Soul
Love your God


Far off hymns and funeral marches
sound the same again
my ears are worn and weary strangers
in a strange land…

and all I am is breath and vapor
and shadow
and all I have is what I need
this I know
that I need a new song.

Her album is spectacular and maintains a Catholic spirit.  She’s one of the very few “Christian artists” striving after beauty.
