{Review} Phil Wickham Children of God CD

Phil Wickham has recently released a new album called Children of God. I was given the chance to listen to it and share it with all of you.

I've enjoyed Phil's music now for awhile (which is why we are on a first name basis). I've even been blessed to see him in concert a time or two. He always delivers heartfelt lyrics and authentic performances.

Children of God has 12 tracks on it and I'm hard pressed to pick a favorite. The one most may be familiar with - if you listen to Christian radio - is "Your Love Awakens Me." This is the first single released off the new album.

Just check out these lyrics for the first verse and chorus for "Your Love Awakens Me" - 
 There were walls between us 
And by the cross you came 
And broke them down 
You broke them down 
And there were chains around us 
And by Your grace we are 
No longer bound 
No longer bound 
You called me out of the grave 
You called me into the light 
You called my name and then my heart came alive 
Your love is greater 
Your love is stronger 
Your love awakens 
Awakens me 
Your love is greater 
Your love is stronger 
Your love awakens 
Awakens me 

I suppose though, if I were pressed to pick my favorite it would be the first track, "Doxology//Amen." It takes me back to my childhood. I grew up in a church where we sang the Doxology at the end of every single service. 
Audio only
The tracks are:
  1. Doxology//Amen
  2. Better Than Life
  3. Your Love Awakens Me
  4. The Secret Place
  5. Wide Awake
  6. My All in All
  7. Starmaker (Above the Earth)
  8. Children of God
  9. Stand In Awe
  10. Body Mind & Soul
  11. As It Is In Heaven
  12. Spirit of God
The album can be purchased at iTunes or Amazon or listen on Spotify. I really enjoyed this newest offering from Phil Wickham. I received my CD just prior to a long solo road trip I took last month. I brought it along and listened to it throughout the drive. It was wonderful.

Oh thank goodness! I'm not here all alone. Thanks for leaving me a comment. It helps that I'm not always talking to myself. Right? Hello?
