Words Make a Difference

The words make the difference

In the world of adult contemporary music what makes Christian songs different is primarily the lyrics. In this week’s edition of The Buzz, we will be highlighting the words from a few of the more popular Christian songs of the day.

When Mercy Found Me – Rhett Walker Band
Album - Come To The River

But that’s where I met Jesus
In one moment everything changed
Who I was got washed away
When mercy found me
My savior’s arms were open wide
And I felt love for the very first time
When mercy found me


The Hurt & The Healer – MercyMe
Album - The Hurt & The Healer

It’s the moment when humanity
Is overcome by majesty
When grace is ushered in for good
And all our scars are understood

Jesus, come and break my fear
Wake my heart and take my tears
Find your glory even here
When the hurt and the healer collide

Forgiveness – Matthew West
Album - Into The Light
It’s the hardest thing to give away
And the last thing on your mind today
It always go to those who don’t deserve
It’s the opposite of how you feel
When they pain they caused is just too real
Takes everything you have to say the word
Forgiveness, forgiveness

Me Without You - TobyMac

And where would I be, without You
I’d be packing my bags when I need to stay
I’d be chasing every breeze that blows my way
I’d be building my kingdom to just watch it fade away, it’s true
That’s me without You

Like all great songs, the music and production are top notch. The difference is the impact the lyrics are having on the lives of those who choose to listen. Contemporary Christian music — give it a try…it could change your life.
