Singing Saturday 12/52

I wish I could find a better quality video of this song, but this is pretty much it.  No one can come close to the  amazing harmonies of 2nd Chapter of Acts, so just ignore the bad 80's hair and listen to their voices.

Singing Saturday 11/52

A New Indie Band for your listening pleasure. This is The Oh Hello's. I am smitten. How can I not be when they have a song called "The Lament of Eustace Scrubb." The whole album is on youtube if you want to listen and they are currently offering the download on their website for however much you want to pay(also at noisetrade).

They so kindly provided the lyrics on the youtube page, so I am copying them here.

I have made mistakes, I continue to make them
the promises I've made, I continue to break them
and all the doubts I've faced, I continue to face them
but nothing is a waste if you learn from it

and the sun, it does not cause us to grow
it is the rain that will strengthen your soul
and it will make you whole

we have lived in fear, and our fear has betrayed us
but we will overcome the apathy that has made us
because we are not alone in the dark with our demons
and we have made mistakes
but we've learned from them

and the sun, it does not cause us to grow
it is the rain that will strengthen your soul
and it will make you whole

and oh my heart, how can I face you now?
when we both know how badly I have let you down
and I am afraid of all that I've built
fading away

Scripture 11/52

Psalm 51.

Something a little different. Here is Charlie Peacock singing Psalm 51. This is probably my favorite scripture song.

SInging Saturday 8/52

I think I have mentioned in the past that I really like We Were Promised Jetpacks. This is from a few years ago, but is still one of my favorites. Both of their albums are amazing.
