Last week I wrote a post about how, though a lot of Christian music brings back memories of how much my total trust in God was betrayed, I still love the song "Oxygen."
Here are a few others I love:
"The Final Word" by Michael Card (full lyrics here)
"He spoke the incarnation and then so was born the Son
His final word was Jesus, he needed no other one
Spoke flesh and blood so he could bleed and make a way divine
And so was born the baby who would die to make it mine."
"Unconditionally" by Katy Perry (full lyrics here)
I will love you
Yeah, I know what Christian music sounds like, and this song is EXACTLY IT. The sound, the rhythm, the words, the fact that it's called "Unconditionally"- this totally belongs in the genre of Christian music. Oh but it's Katy Perry, the personification of all things satanic. The gatekeepers would tell us it couldn't possibly be Christian music.
Yeah, okay. Try to tell me this song doesn't sound exactly like everything on Christian radio, and I will laugh in your face.
Love that song.
"God is a Girl" by Groove Coverage (full lyrics here)
"God is a girl, she's only a girl
Do you believe it, can you receive it?"
Well this one pretty obviously would never be considered a "Christian song" by Real True Christians. Whatever. God is a girl.
So, readers, what Christian/spiritual/religious songs do you like?
