King of Love

After moving home from college a few years ago, I started attending Austin Stone Community Church, where I met some of the sweetest girls and got involved in a missional community for several months. Once Thomas moved to town, we got connected to our now church {Wells Branch Community Church} which was a little closer to home for us, but Austin Stone will always have a special place in my heart!

That's why I was so thrilled when Jamie Ivey asked for some blog friends to review Austin Stone Worship's new live worship album, "King of Love." The most beautiful box arrived in the mail last week, and now I have this CD on repeat in my car. It's so good!


I think my favorite song on the album is "Jesus is Better" {grab the FREE download here!} and I find myself singing it over and over throughout the day.

There is no other so sure and steady, my hope is held in your hand.
When castles crumble and breath is fleeting, upon this rock I will stand.

Glory, glory, we have no other king but Jesus Lord of all.
Raise the anthem, our loudest praises ring!
We crown Him Lord of all.

Your kindly rule has shattered and broken the curse of sin's tyranny.
My life is hidden 'neath Heaven's shadow, your crimson flood covers me.

Glory, glory, we have no other king but Jesus Lord of all.
Raise the anthem, our loudest praises ring!
We crown Him Lord of all.

In all my sorrows, Jesus is better -- make my heart believe.
In all my victories, Jesus is better -- make my heart believe.
Than any comfort, Jesus is better -- make my heart believe.
More than all riches, Jesus is better -- make my heart believe.
Our souls declaring, Jesus is better -- make my heart believe.
Our song eternal, Jesus is better -- make my heart believe.

Jamie shared the video below earlier this week that shares the story behind "Jesus is Better."




The "King of Love" album is out in just a few weeks with a release date of October 22, so be sure to grab a copy! And if you didn't see the link above, scroll back up and get a free download of "Jesus is Better."

Aaron, Jamie and the rest of my brothers and sisters at Austin Stone, thanks for inviting me to the #KingofLove party a little early. Praying that the music on this album stirs hearts and touches lives!
