The Redemption Songs CD is indeed awesome and worth listening over and over again. I take the CD with me to work, on the way to church, and when I am driving my kids around on weekends. The very first 2 songs that I heard and attracted me most (when I was at Timeless Treasure Christian Music Store), was "God Be Merciful To Me" and "O Come and Mourn With Me Awhile". I just loved the lyrics of these songs. I am blessed to have this CD on that day at the store because there was only 1 CD left. To Jars of Clay band, Congratulations to your God-given talent.
I have listened to this cd over and over and I seem to always love it. My mother had I'll Fly Away played at her funeral so I had to buy this. This is the first spring that I have not been down about her passing on. I too someday hope to fly away. I had to get used to some of the songs. Some songs remind me of my childhood church camp, good memories!! God Bless!
I went to a concert with Jars of Clay and a few other groups and they played songs from this cd which I hadn't heard them do before. I was dissapointed at the time because I wasn't familar with the songs. I purchased the cd at the concert and started listening to it and now just love it. I love the old time hymns done in a new way. The messages are great and the way they put them to music now is awesome. I especially love the song Lift your Head. They have been a great encouragement. Keep up the great work guys!
