Andrae-crouch

Gospel singer, Andrae Crouch, passed away last Thursday at the age of 72. [Read the full story]

I'll never forget listening to my first Andrae Crouch album and being touched by the life, the energy, and the love for Jesus that exuded through Andrae's music. 

Here are my favourite Andrae Crouch albums:

  • Live at Carnegie Hall -  a classic!
  • Live in London.
  • Finally.
  • Mercy. 

Here are my favourite Andrae Crouch songs in order:

  • I Don't Know Why Jesus Loved Me.
  • My Tribute - To God be the Glory.
  • The Blood Will never Lose It's Power.
  • Soon and Very Soon.
  • It Won't Be Long.

No doubt, Andrae's in a better place ... singing God's praises and maybe even leading heaven's choir!

Grateful.


You Raise Me Up

EagleOne of my favourite songs is You Raise Me Up as sung by Josh Groban.

Here are the lyrics.

YOU RAISE ME UP

Vs.1

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;

When troubles come and my heart burdened be;

Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,

Until you come and sit awhile with me.

Chorus 

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;

You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;

I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;

You raise me up... To more than I can be.

Vs.2 

There is no life - no life without its hunger;

Each restless heart beats so imperfectly;

But when you come and I am filled with wonder,

Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity.

You raise me up... To more than I can be.

Kind of reminds me of the Spirit-inspired words of Scripture:

Isaiah 40:28-31. Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding. He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. NLT

May God raise you up today!
