Irish Hymns 4
for the life of the church'
In “Hymns for the Life of the Church” Keith
has written an invaluable collection of new congregational
hymns on different subjects, from communion, preaching
and benediction to unity, suffering and world mission.
This album – the fourth and final in this influential
series has many of the traits of the previous albums – like
albums 2 and 3, it features Margaret Becker, Iona’s
Joanne Hogg and Kristyn Getty. Like albums 2 and 3 it
is packed with new songs to be used and re-used in church.
Like albums 2 and 3 it features another new song destined
to become a classic.
The Power of the Cross” is a new hymn by Keith Getty
and Stuart Townend telling the story of the death of Christ
through the context of his sufferings. Already being sung
churches it is a modern classic ballad which takes us
through the Easter narrative. It is the opening track
on the album and sung by Kristyn Getty.
