Dear Listener,

It's been a busy year! Our audience has increased hugely - the YouTube channel now has over 12,000 Subscribers and total video views currently stands at 1.5 million! Amongst the growth though with some help from friends and family I've been in touch with more artists to bring you another free summer mixtape and here it is.

It's not as long as last years, at just 11 tracks but I'd rather deliver a shorter mixtape of top quality music than fill it with anything I could get permission for!

Like last years mixtape I hope you are introduced to new artists through this compilation. I've come to know some of these artists really well whilst putting this together and by speaking to them throughout the year and I can honestly say there are some great people featured on this album who truly worship Christ with everything that they have to give. So, check out the poster that's included and get in touch with the artists' through Facebook and Twitter etc. and tell them how much you appreciate their music, knowing these guys most of them will probably even find the time to reply to you! (Then go download the rest of their work!)

Be encouraged by their music, share it with friends not just because you secretly hope they'll become Christians through it but because it's simply a collection of great music! Enjoy the diverse mix of genres, the different ways that people praise God and the different stories people have to tell.

My prayer this year is for this mixtape to spread further than before, to reach Christians throughout the world who need encouraging, Christians who wish there was great music for a great God, Christians who need a new song to sing and soundtrack to dance to.

A huge thanks to all the artists involved, for supporting the blog and the work I do and wanting to be part of this small but influential mixtape.

And finally thanks to you the listener for the continued support to both the blog and the artists we feature, whether it's simply by liking a link on Facebook, sharing the blog with friends or donating money so that we can give more copies of the mixtape away. Thank you for making this possible.

In Christ,

Track Name: Waken - We Will Run
Holy and anointed One
Your endless light outshines the sun
Glorious in Heaven above
Release Your love down like a flood

Perfect and unchanging One
Our hearts unbound by what You’ve done
Sovereign King, Relentless love
Grace abounds, the battle’s won

We Will Run, to Your love
With arms stretched wide, in the hope of the Father
God our hope, God our strength
Forevermore

All Glory to the One, who shed His blood
All Power to His name, the righteous One
All Glory to the One, who lives in us (x2)

We Will Run, to Your love (x4)
Track Name: Judah Lee - Vocal Chords
We bring You thanks and honor, we bring You praise, we bring Your praise
We fall in awe and wonder, have Your way, have Your way

I know that I was made for this
There’s a well in my soul, and Your filling it
All of my heart sings.. “I am Yours!”
As my Spirit comes up to You through my vocal chords

Come have all of the glory, we bring You praise, we bring Your praise
Come take all of my story, have Your way, have Your way

I know that I was made for this
There’s a well in my soul, and Your filling it
All of my heart sings.. “I am Yours!”
As my Spirit comes up to You through my vocal chords

We bring You praise, We bring You praise, for all of our days

I know that I was made for this
There’s a well in my soul, and Your filling it
All of my heart sings.. “I am Yours!”
As my Spirit comes up to You through my vocal chords
Track Name: Tom McConnell - Handiwork
I am a hammer that can help to build this land
But I need the Architect who’s written out the plan
I am an instrument, I’m broken but redeemed
And I was made to play my Saviour’s symphony

Alleluia, I am not my own
I was bought with the blood of the Righteous One
And I was designed with his work in mind
So I can delight in Him until the day is done
Woah oh oh…

I’ve never earned a single breath that i have breathed
And yet they keep on coming and they do not cease
And when the morning comes and I open up my eyes
I know that I did not commission this sunrise

Alleluia, I am not my own
I was bought with the blood of the Righteous One
And I was designed with his work in mind
So I can delight in Him until the day is done
Woah oh oh…

We are all pieces of handiwork
We were made to work so let’s get building
The Kingdom of Heaven here on earth
Oh we know that our labour will not be in vain

We are all pieces of handiwork
We were made to work so let’s get building
The Kingdom of Heaven here on earth
Oh we know that our labour will not be in vain

Alleluia, I am not my own
I was bought with the blood of the Righteous One
And I was designed with his work in mind
So I can delight in Him until the day is done
Woah oh oh…
Track Name: Eagle Rock Gospel Singers - Little Light
All at once like a fire
All at once like a dream
All at once in a message that came down to me

I had searched, I was wantin'
Filled with grace was redeemed
Knew my shame was wiped away from me

Oh my Lord, I want to burn brightly
Have a fire needs to shine, shine, shine
Let me be bold, let me sing mighty
All from this little light of mine

All at once found my father
All at once knew supreme
All at once I was filled with fire so deep

Saw the light, felt the spirit
I was ready to scream
Knew my shame was wiped away from me

Give me your bad blues
My faith will not refuse
I am but a sinner, not a saint
But the good Lord rocks steady
Took me in, I was ready
Are you wanting to be born again?

I have witnessed.
I have pained
I have walked on the edges of sane
Fear my honesty
Fear His reign
Fear the Lord, He will come back again
Track Name: Isla Vista Worship - Lost
Your eyes are full of friendship
Your eyes are full of peace

And Your eyes are full of heaven
And Your eyes are set on me

Oh...

Your eyes are full of promise
Your eyes are full of love

Your eyes cast out the darkness
Your eyes are like the sun

Oh...

I could get lost in You for hours
I could get lost in You for days
I could get lost in You forever
Track Name: HXLY KXSS - Only For You (Feat. Emily Swingler)
Do You remember
When we met in '98?
You took my hand
Held it tight and kept me safe

Hold me close, keep me near
Though I was lost I'm now right here

Oh my soul sings only for You
Teach me Your path, lead me in the truth
Remember not the sins of my youth
Now my soul sings only for You

Do you remember
When I turned my back on You?
I was hiding in the shadows
But Your light kept shining through

Hold me close, keep me near
Though I was lost I'm now right here

Oh my soul sings only for You
Teach me Your path, lead me in the truth
Remember not the sins of my youth
Now my soul sings only for You

Do You remember
When I came running back home?
Dirty rags washed clean
You've made me white as snow

Hold me close, keep me near
Though I was lost I'm now right here

Oh my soul sings
Oh my soul sings
Oh my soul sings
Oh my...

Oh my soul sings only for You
Teach me Your path, lead me in the truth
Remember not the sins of my youth
Now my soul sings only for You
Track Name: SPZRKT - U N I V E R S E [Prod. by @SangoBeats]
[Verse 1]
There is nothing like You
There is nothing like You
My God
Sing it from the highest mountain
Sing it from the mountain

[Hook]
And
Your love, Your love, Your love
Is everything and
You are, You are, You are
You're all I need

[Chorus]
Singing Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Jesus
You mean the universe to me
You mean the universe to me
(You mean it all, you mean it all to me)

[Verse 2]
There is nothing like You
There is nothing like You
(I am longing for Your presence)
I am longing for Your presence
I long for Your presence

[Hook]
And
Your love, Your love, Your love
Is everything and
You are, You are, You are
You're all I need

[Chorus]
Singing Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Jesus
You mean the universe to me
You mean the universe to me
(You don't mean the world You mean everything)
Track Name: Rivers & Robots - White As Snow
So I cling to the Lamb who has
purchased me with His own blood
And I stand in His righteousness,
washed by His mercy and love
Though I fail a thousand times, Lord
Your mercies are new every morning

Wash my heart clean,
Let my spirit be steadfast and strong

All my sins like scarlet
Will be white as snow
Though they're red like crimson
They will be as wool

A broken and contrite heart
You do not despise
Wash over me, Clean my heart,
Clean my mind, clean my eyes

All my sins like scarlet
Will be white as snow
Though they're red like crimson
They will be as wool
Track Name: WASHA - Child
Fell through the cracks
burnt there and back

Dark built from lungs
fate overcome

I was a child in my skin,
there is a man somewhere within.

Light floods the dark
fill, grateful heart

Yearn, thirst for love
death, overcome

I was a child in my skin,
there is man somewhere within.
Track Name: J. Han - Vibe
[Hook]
Get your hands up high.
We’re gonna vibe out tonight with no limits
Get your hands up high.
We’re gonna vibe out tonight cause it’s finished
Get your hands up high.
We’re gonna vibe out tonight and let’s get it
Been gone for a minute; put-in work, doing business
So we’re gonna vibe out tonight and just chill

[Verse 1]
This is one the tracks
I wanna lay back to up in the late afternoon.
whether I’m working or maybe taking the day off; who-
ever wants to listen, this’ even for the laid-off dudes. [uh]
When I kick it with my team, yea we kick it hard,
and we punt it far to the other side of Mars.
What you mean, what you mean, what you mean?
[Hmm] Living life together, every moment, every scene?
Or spending hours staring at a LED?
Or putting 9 irons to work on the green?
Or catching up while sipping on a cup of tea?
Man, do whatever you gotta do to help you catch a breather.
Breathe-in; breathe out.
[phew] I like the sound of that.
[So kick your] feet-up [and put your] stuff down.
[ahhhhh] We like the sound of that!

[Verse 2]
and I know that you’re tired.
I see the bags under your eyes, they haven’t eased in a while.
But it’s okay. You’re merely tryna provide.
Grinding out the 9 to 5. You gotta fight to survive.
What can I say? If you’re paying your dues
and finding some uncharted territory, how can you snooze?
Yea, I’m the same. I’m on a journey unknown.
They’re calling us the pioneers; I just wanna go home.
But, man, I’m scared. I’m on this journey alone.
They’re calling us the forerunners; I just wanna go home.
And if I fail? This heavy burden’s on my twill.
What’s the point of dreaming if you cannot even pay the bills?
Breathe-in; breathe out.
[phew] I really needed that.
[So kick your] feet-up [and put your] stuff down.
[ahhhhh] We like the sound of that!

[Bridge]
I’m feeling tired. I’m on a journey unknown.
They’re calling us the trailblazers; I just wanna go home.
I’m really spent. I’m on a journey unknown.
They’re calling us the innovators; I just wanna go home.
Breathe-in; breathe out.
[phew] I like the sound of that.
[So kick your] feet-up [and put your] stuff down.
[ahhhhh] We like the sound of that!
