about

Dear Listener,

I hope that this mixtape exposes you to some new music - that you may discover musicians and bands you perhaps had not previously heard. If so, I encourage you to look up the artists' other music - use this mixtape as a springboard for hearing more music.

I also hope that this mixtape shows you just how diverse Christian music is - just like the body of Christ which has created it. If there are genres on here that you wouldn't usually listen to, don't just skip past them, try hearing something new! I believe that each genre serves different purposes, thereby meaning that no one genre is necessarily better than another, but each has their own perks.

My prayer is that as you enjoy the music you would pass it to friends, family, colleagues, fellow church goers etc. Please pass it on, these artists work hard and their music deserves to be heard, enjoyed and supported by more Christians.

However, having said that, this music also needs to be shared with people who don't know Christ. It's got a great message and the world needs to hear it, so don't be afraid to play it loud, and share it with those people you'd rather hide it from.

Also a massive thank you to all the artists that agreed to have their music given away for absolutely no cost. Please could you, as a listener, thank them with a purchase, a tweet, a like etc. and let them know it's appreciated by you fans!

Finally, this is a SUMMER mixtape - this will be the soundtrack to my summer and I hope it becomes yours also. Thanks for listening, downloading, and supporting the blog and the artists involved.

In Christ,
Stephen Bradley,

Track Name: Strahan - Deliverance
Your love is a flood and I drink deep when the tide is up
Oh would you flood me too?
Saltwater in my blood has made me taste sweet to the world
Oh and you taste sweet too

This is my deliverance hands held high as you deliver it
Oh you have made me a child of God
My feet on the ground and my heart in heaven
I am bread made without the leaven
Oh you have made me a child of God

I lay in the sand with sweet forgiveness in my hand
Oh as a gift from you
Your water floods my brain this grey cranium wont be the same
No where I’ve been won’t do

This is my deliverance hands held high as you deliver it
Oh you have made me a child of God
My feet on the ground and my heart in heaven
I am bread made without the leaven
Oh you have made me a child of God

And I won’t go
Until I know
That you have sown
All you have in me
Track Name: Ghost Ship - One God
Prophets proclaimed to our fathers long ago
To turn from your statues and your idols made of gold

Rise from your knees, stop worshiping
The splinters of broken gods, turn and see your King

There is one God over all kings and rulers
And He reigns alone

Now we proclaim the same God, the same Word
Who stood through the ages, Jesus Christ the Lord

Rise from your knees, stop worshiping
The splinters of broken gods, turn and see your King

There is one God over all kings and rulers
And he reigns alone

Burn them all down, my God, my God

There is one God over all kings and rulers
And he reigns alone

And the one God over all kings and rulers
Will not share his throne
Track Name: Seeker & Servant - We Will Sing
Verse:
We will sing with all that we have
You have made us glad
You have made us glad

We will dance with all that we have
You have made us glad
You have made us glad

Chorus:
You have saved our souls
You have made us whole
Have made us whole
Have made us whole

Bridge:
We are running, running for Your glory
Running, running for Your glory
Running, running for Your glory Lord
Track Name: Wayfarer - When I Approach My God
Great God from You there's nought concealed,
You seest my inward frame
To You I always stand revealed,
Exactly as I am

Since I can hardly bear,
What in myself I often see
How vile and dark must I appear
Most holy God to Thee?

But since my Saviour stands between
In garments dyed in blood
'Tis He instead of me is seen
When I approach my God
When I approach my God

Thus though a sinner, I am safe,
He pleads before the throne
His life and death on my behalf,
And calls my sins His own

What wondrous love, what mysteries
In this appointed shrine
My breaches of the law are His,
And His obedience mine
And His obedience mine

But since my Saviour stands between
In garments dyed in blood
'Tis He instead of me is seen
When I approach my God
When I approach my God
Track Name: Page CXVI - Rock Of Ages (Derek Webb Remix)
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee
Let the water and the blood,
From Thy wounded side which flowed
Be of sin the double cure
Save from wrath and make me pure

Oooo, Oooo

Not the labor of my hands
Can fulfil Thy law's demands;
Could my zeal no respite know
Could my tears forever flow
All for sin could not atone;
Thou must save, and Thou alone

Oooo, Oooo

Nothing in my hand I bring
SImply to the cross I cling
Naked, come to Thee for dress;
Helpless look to Thee for grace
Foul, I to the fountain fly;
Wash me Savior, or I die

Oooo, Oooo, Oooo, Oooo

Wash me, Savior, or I die
Wash me, Savior, or I die
Wash me, wash me, Savior, or I die
Wash me, Savior, or I die

Rock of Ages, cleft for me, let me hide myself in Thee
Wash me, Savior, or I die
Track Name: Jeff Schneeweis - Follow As You Lead
Verse 1:
Everything about You is so right
Everything's perfect that You touch
Touch me with Your holy love
Love me so I come to life

Chorus:
I can feel Your Spirit on me
You're the very air that I breath
You can have it all my God
I follow You as You lead

Verse 2:
Holy Son You died for us
Rose again for everyone
Went to hell and back again
Took our sin away with it

Bridge:
Everything You do with Your love
Your love is perfect
Thank You Lord for giving us hope
You gave us hope again x2

Chorus:
I can feel Your Spirit on me
You're the very air that I breath
You can have it all my God
I follow You as You lead
Track Name: S.O. - Away Soon (Feat. Sean C. Johnson)
Verse 1:
And this is for those who on the road you waking up full of groans
Saints of the Most forsaking all you have known
The stakes sure have grown debating whether the load that you carry will tarry, your faint fairly alone and frail
The opposite of trill in your body shell
Our bodies return to the dust that’s why the Body builds
Longs for something better without the common thrill
Lord just come and get us and do reveal your will
Still, we’re awaiting the day
Got treasures in jars of clay decaying away
Praying and praising in this tent we’re aiming to make
God look greater with intent every breath that we take
Till we lay in a grave, it’s for His glory alone
Still can’t wait till I hear my Lord calling me home
Take me away for Your pleasures, Your endeavours looking better
That awaits all who trust in the story You told

Chorus (Sean C. Johnson):
Our hope lies not in what we go through
But in God knowing what His goin’ do
It’s alright knowing that we won’t move
Hope in God 'cos His word is so true

We’ll be going away soon
He’ll take us up away from all this pain
We’ll be going away soon
Each day we’ll know His face feel warm embrace
I’m going away soon!

Verse 2:
Afflicted but not crushed, hurt but not forsaken
Committed to God’s trust for us there’s no mistaken
Depicted in God’s Son on the cross, He demonstrated
That real love think of that when devasted
And the rain pours and hail storms
Calm we know the main source and delve forth
Respond like “I’m blessed I don’t mean that material wealth – God’s gift to us is Him giving Himself.”
Eternal glory awaits beyond what we compare
Co-heirs with the heir we’ll be caught in the air
Oh yeah, who dare try take it away from us
We’ve heard it in His word, His promises aint budging
This commentary aint common but found in the Scriptures
And for the listeners who are Christian astound by His wisdom
His coming to take us all not one will be missing
In an instant we’ll be gone 'cos His word is consistent


Chorus (Sean C. Johnson):
Our hope lies not in what we go through
But in God knowing what He's goin' do
It’s alright knowing that we won’t move
Hope in God 'cos His word is so true

We’ll be going away soon
He’ll take us up away from all this pain
We’ll be going away soon
Each day we’ll know His face feel warm embrace
I’m going away soon!

Bridge (Sean C. Johnson):
Soon, we’ll be going away
Standing face to face
I can’t wait for that day (x2)

I wanna meet the Master
Stand right in His presence
I wanna touch the Man that saved my soul

I wanna see the God that
Formed me in His hands and
Blew the breath of life right in my soul
Track Name: Beleaf Melanin - Team Theo
Verse 1:
Theo, you're my little boy, my lil chocolate, coconut, almond joy
You're like my sequel,
Me plus your mom minus prophylactic equals - mini melanin
What Isaac is to Abraham you'll see the relevance
I'm saying, our life was altered when we found we were pregnant
Was a ram up in the thicket we were blessed by the presence just to be able to sacrifice
'Cos I want you to know Jesus right now 'cos it's sweeter in the after life
There's nothing sweeter than to watch my son lay with my wife
While I go off to work 'cos I know that our God will hold you tight
And I'm the type to hold a grudge tighter than I grip the mic
And as you hold my finger I notice that you and I are alike
I pray the apple of my eye falls from the tree
And rose farther than preceding father was to be
That's why I chose not to name you after me
'Cos you're original - That would be blasphemy
And I don't want you to inherit all my atrophy
And I don't want you to settle for satisfactory
That would be agony
But to hold you to a standard I don't hold myself to is a catastrophe
And God is changing me now as your example

*Yo why you choose to sample that?
It's almost like*
(When I had you baby)
*Yeah, actually this is a pretty good sample*

Chorus:
Theo you got a gift
Theo you gotta give it
Theo you got a gift
Oh you're God given
Theo you got a gift
Theo you gotta give it
Theo you got a gift

Verse 2:
Just to let you know you're getting real good genes
You're getting true religion
But God don't have no grandkids this is your relation-ship
You setting sail with the Author of creation don't forget to check your mail
You got 66 letters, a Saviour that we nailed to a cross
And he lead us
Rose from the grave, paid the price, well invested is our Saviour , Lord the Christ,
My son, please don't stray away from your father's advice,
How come, I love you so much just 'cos you're looking just like your mom
Even if I never blow up she will still be the bomb-diggity
Uh, you have a friend in me,
We are a team, I am the coach, and your mom's the MVP
That makes you next up my young 'un
You're gonna change the world
No pressure, no pressure, no pressure
Pushing hard, overcoming
And I'm 'ma show you love
Interrupt my rhymes just to give papa a hug.

Chorus:
Theo you got a gift
Theo you gotta give it
Theo you got a gift
Oh you're God given
Theo you got a gift
Theo you gotta give it
Theo you got a gift
Oh you're God given
Track Name: Josh Garrels - Pilot Me
I will arise and follow you over
Savior please, pilot me

Over the waves and through every sorrow
Savior please, pilot me

When I have no more strength left to follow
Fall on my knees, pilot me

May your sun rise and lead me on
Over the sea’s, savior pilot me

O’ Lord
Track Name: Thad Kopec - Red Wolf
Red Wolf don’t come ‘round here
Clawing at my door
It’s been four weeks since winter
And spring don’t love you anymore

The sun comes up, the rooster crows
He sings a song of regret
I saw the blood-red sun as it rose
Your four teeth in my neck

The crow caws high above the river
I can see your tracks in the snow
It’s been four hours since sunset
And my daughter still hasn’t come home

I fear the worst; I fear she’s dead
I fear she’s all alone
I hear her there in your stomach
Screaming, “I just want to come home”
Track Name: Benjamin Dunn & The Animal Orchestra - When We Were Young
Verse 1:
Do you remember when we were young?
When life was so simple and we just had fun
Do you remember when we were small?
And everything around us was so much taller

Chorus:
Yeah, we remember when we were younger
And all that we wanted was the summer
And we don't want to grow cold
And we don't want to grow old
So we'll just remember when we were young

Verse 2:
Do you remember when we were kids?
And all that we wanted was to go outside with our friends
Do you remember falling in love?
Passing notes in 6th grade, I got detention everyday

Chorus:
Yeah we remember when we were younger
And all that we wanted was each other
And we don't want to grow cold
And we don't want to grow old
So we'll just remember when we were young

Yeah we remember when we were younger
And all that we wanted was the summer
And we don't want to grow cold
And we don't want to grow old
So we'll just remember when we were young
Track Name: Rivers & Robots - The Bridegroom
“Until the day breaks and shadows flee
Turn my beloved, and come to me
I’ve made a place for you

I have come to the garden
To find you here
So let me see your face
Let me hear your voice
For your voice is sweet to me

Do you know that
You have ravished my heart?
Do you know that
You have ravished my heart?
Yes, you have ravished my heart
With one glance of your eye

Now, the winter has passed
The rain has been and gone
I come over the hills to say
‘come away with me my dear, away,
come away’

We will be, we will be, we will be together
We will be, we will be, we will be forever

Would you lift up your eyes to see
I am calling you now, to me
I have so much more to tell you

All that you really believe inside
What you see when you close your eyes
I have so much more to show you”
