confession of a groupie

...i've checked their tour dates and if i could i'd follow them across the country!

The new Shane & Shane album, Pages, was released today. I've been waiting several months for this and I can't remember the last time I was even aware of an album release date!

You've got to check it out. I've heard that the track We Love You Jesus has already gotten lots of radio time...hopefully that hasn't killed the song already. I've been able to hear that and Embracing Accusation live. If you listen to nothing else on the album you've got to hear that song...it wrecked me when I heard it performed at Granger last fall. That, by the way, was my first introduction to these two.

(David and Susan get to hear them live soon. You gotta tell us all about it, ya hear?!?)

Embracing Accusation

Father of lies, coming to steal kill and destroy

All my hopes of being good enough

I hear him saying, “cursed are the ones who can’t abide”

He’s right, halleluia, he’s right

The devil is preaching the song of the redeemed

That I am cursed and gone astray

I cannot gain salvation

Embracing accusation

Could the father of lies be telling the truth

of God to me tonight?

That if the penalty of sin is death, then death is mine

I hear him saying, “cursed are the ones who can’t abide”

The devil’s singing over me an age old song

That I am cursed and gone astray

Singing the first verse so conveniently over me

He’s forgotten the refrain.
