On Sunday we sang the song ‘In Christ Alone’. It’s an awesome song. It was written by Keith Getty (music) and Stuart Townend (lyrics) and released in 2001. A number of folk at Newhaven have this as their favourite worship song. There is a link to a video below with Stuart Townend leading the song. A while ago I was looking up In Christ Alone on YouTube and came across a version by Adam Young from Owl City (Fireflies is a favourite song of ours…) and thought you would like to hear it. It’s posted below the first video. Enjoy.
Adam Young from Owl City: I’m twenty four years old, yet something about this song makes me bawl like a baby. The way the melodies and lyrics swirl together is so poignant and beautiful. If I were to count on one hand, the number of songs that have ever deeply moved me, this one would take the cake. Last night I probably spent more time actually crying at the piano than I did recording it. Such are the secret confessions of a shy boy from Minnesota.
