Warrior | Hannah Kerr

Last week at Refresh, our worship leader was Hannah Kerr and band. Her newest release is a Christmas CD, but her first CD was called Overflow and included the song “Warrior.”

So You Wanna Go Back to Egypt

I mentioned this song during my sermon yesterday. Little did I know that yesterday was the 37th anniversary of Keith Green’s tragic plane accident. There is a great deal of truth wrapped up in this song – the Israelites rebelled against God and against Moses several times during the long journey out of Egypt and even during the wilderness wanderings – all they wanted to do was go back to Egypt instead of entering the land that God had promised them.

The Call | Neal Morse Band

For today’s Music Monday post, we have something a little different. One of the bands that I like to listen to is the Neal Morse Band. This song comes from the 2015 album, The Grand Experiment. The band plays in what is called a progressive rock or prog rock style. The tune clocks in at over 10 minutes – it’s not your average pop/rock 3 to 4 minute song. The video is at the end of the post – it’s different than most things I have shared on here, but I really like the lyrics, which I’ve posted below. I encourage you to check out the lyrics. Have an awesome Monday!


Leave it all behind you
Time to let it go
Free the chains that bind you
Let your heart go and follow the call

With every beating of my heart
Every moment of my soul
Like the air surrounds the earth
I’m engulfed in who you are

But at times we find ourselves
In a place where it all comes down
And it seems there is no hope
And forever we’re falling

Far and away
There we will be
It’s all there for the making
If we’ll only turn the key
Close as your breath
Filling it all
So reach across the moment
And come following the call

Just as life can break your heart
And I know how you feel today
If you dare the dream you’ll find
When all you’ve got you just give away

Far and away
There we will be
It’s all there for the making
If we’ll only turn the key
Close as your breath
Filling it all
So reach across the moment
And come following the call
Following the call

Leave it now
You know it’s time
The grief you need you’re feeling
But your feelings don’t define
Who you are
You’re more than your mind
So reach for the connection
Leaving everything behind

Leave it all behind you
Time to let it go
Peace will surely find you
And let love shine a light on us all

Leave it all behind you
Time to let it go
Free the chains that bind you
Let your heart go and follow the call

Split the Sea | Hannah Kerr

This morning I was looking for a song to post, so I looked at the Billboard Charts for something (not something I normally do) and found this song was on the way up. Hannah Kerr will be our worship leader at Refresh Retreat and Family Camp in a few weeks.
