A Note from the Artist…
What does it mean to adore God? The American Heritage Dictionary defines the phrase to adore as to regard with a deep, often rapturous love. That very well describes how I feel about my Lord Jesus.
I am in awe of him in every way, not only because of his continuous, overflowing blessings on my life, but simply because of who he is; he is the one…
…In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 1 Colossians 1:14-17
Without Jesus, we are lost. We strive alone and in the darkness. We suffer for nothing.
With Jesus, we have purpose. We walk in the light and when we suffer, it s for his glory.
I adore my Lord Jesus because he saved me, both from spiritual death and from hopelessness. His love for me has overcome all my failings. For that, I cherish him, and I want every moment of my life to give praise to him.
I think the writers of the hymns understood what it meant to adore God. Just read through the lyrics in your hymnal sometime. The hymns are more than just music; they are poetry, instruction, encouragement, wisdom, exhortation and precious letters of love. They are songs of repentance, songs of victory and songs of praise. They reflect the light of God s Word, and remind us to take our eyes off ourselves and put them on Jesus where they belong. When I read them, I am moved, and when I sing them, my soul is stirred.
What a joy it has been to work on these arrangements, to wrap my heart and hands around these melodies that have praised God for generations. I hope that in some small way, this album helps keep these songs alive and present in the hearts of modern worshippers around the world.
Look up, always look up, and give him praise. In the darkness, give him praise. Through joy or suffering, give him praise. Never cease to praise him.
Yes, I adore Him… and often with a deep, rapturous love.
