love ran red

“At the cross, at the cross
I surrender my life
I’m in awe of you, I’m in awe of you
Where your love ran red
And my sin washed white
I owe all to you, I owe all to you”

Love Ran Red is the new(ish) album from Christian singer and songwriter Chris Tomlin.  The title song is one of those that will move your soul, taking you right back to that first moment that you stood and gave your life to Christ, when you first fully understood that sacrifice. There are musical ups and downs in the album, and it generally has a more dancey feel to it than some of his first albums, but it is a great soundtrack with challenging lyrics. 

Here is a link to the title song – hope you enjoy! 



P.s this is also a great video as the lovely Chris has provided the chords in sync with the song so that you can learn it on the guitar really easily – showing his heart to equip the church for worship.  Love it!

    Dont hate me but I really didn't like this album at all! I think Chris Tomlin has a habit of having a good album and then a not so good one. Perhaps I was just anticipating a bad one because Burning Lights was so good -Countless Wonders what an anthem!
    I put him in the bracket of Jeremy Camp who can forget the wonder of “This Man” on the Restored Album or Stay from the same titled album only for these to be followed by Reckless urgh!
    Kutless are quiet like this too and even the greatness that is MercyMe had a blip in the middle but thankfully are back to the good old days!
    I think singer songwriters who take time out tend to come back with more purposeful worship songs like Leeland for instance tend to have 3 years between albums and it serves them well. While We Sing is still as challenging now as it was 2011. “while we sing, as the hungry roam the streets, as the broken are on their knees, We keep singing, but just a song won’t heal the bleeding wound, church wake up, we’re sleeping in an empty tomb. Church arise, shake yourself from the dust, God is calling us to go”

    Ooo controversial! I am enjoying this album at the mo, but there are already a couple of weaker songs that I admit aren't great. I think I missed his last album – was that the one with God's Great Dancefloor on? As that name of that song put me off!!!!

    I definitely need to borrow some more albums from you as my range is Chris Tomlinson, soul survivor and casting crowns (I have dabbled in mercyme and third day…)
