God-He's always the same

Newsong scores big with latest single from "One True God"

Newsong released their latest CD “One True God” in May, 2011. The latest single from that album is a song titled “The Same God”.  This song is written from the perspective of a lonely and desperate Christian who feels God no longer listens. It’s a song most believers can relate to no matter how strong their faith, since most people eventually go through a time when they feel God no longer listens to their prayers.

This song attempts to encourage those who find themselves struggling with doubt and fear or feel that God is so far away they are unable to talk to him.  The chorus reminds listeners that God is the same, that He never changes, and always cares about His children.

If you can’t listen to this tune, reading the lyrics should definitely be a source of inspiration anyway:

Ghost Ship - 'The Revelation of Jesus Christ'

For banjo-powered roots-rock, Ghost Ship gets awfully ethereal. Something about echoing slide guitars ringing out in the background just starts to transport the listener. Check out this epic number from their A River With No End EP.
