I have the joy of leading the singing at Next this coming weekend in Baltimore, MD.
All the members of Generation Letter – John, Stephen, George, Kyle, Abbott, and Alex – are from Metro Life Church in Orlando, FL. Along with leading corporate worship in their local church, they’ve also been busy making a record, winning awards, and serving in other ways. In 2008 and 2009 they won the John Lennon Song Writing contest in the Gospel category. Local radio stations have featured their music, and they’ve also written songs that reflect God’s heart for the unborn.
Their purpose is summed up on their website: “Not only is their vision to create and record great music that magnifies The Creator, but they want to freely share the joy of worshipping God with a biblically informed theology of worship to all who listen to their songs.”
The guys in Generation Letter are not only humble and gifted. They’re generous. They’ve allowed me to give everyone a free song from their new album This is the Story, which will make its debut at Next. They’re also letting me give away ten free downloads of the whole album. All you have to do is leave a comment below by midnight on Thursday, May 27 , and I’ll pick ten names at random on Friday.
Here are the lyrics:
Lord, your children have not been spared
From this worlds daily trials and cares
We know weakness, fear and sorrow, yet weʼre not alone
You are near in our time of need
You are faithful you hear our pleas
You give grace to all who hope in your mighty name
King of peace you calm our raging storms
All we need is found within your arms
We find rest by your quiet stream
King of peace
We were rebels against your reign
We were haters of your great name
When you saved us from your justice and from ourselves
You gave life to our hearts of stone
Made a way for us to your throne
Where we lay down all our burdens at your feet
We stand upon your faithfulness As we trust in you
By George Romanacce, Stephen Morgan, John Ripley, and Steve Cook
