Watercooler Wednesday- SACRED

My friend Rich Smith has just released his album, SACRED and I think it is worth the time to stop and listen to this collection of hymns remixed.

An intergenerational collection of time tested hymns, these songs are sure to be favorites with kids as well as the most seasoned adults that you know.

Rich is tuned in to the heart beat of worship in the church.  These hymns are some of the best loved in the church.  These arrangements are enjoyed by all who hear them.  We used Rich for our Family Camp this year and he did some of these songs with our people.  The little ones loved "Count Your Blessings" and "How Firm A Foundation" and the adults loved the accoustic versions of "Come Thou Fount", "What A Friend", "Be Thou My Vision" and "No Not One".   

What other record do you know that can be a favorite of all ages?  Not many, but this is definetly one.

Here are a few of the other clips:
It Is Well With My Soul--one of my personal favorites.

As a worship leader I'm constantly looking for hymns that have a fresh coat of paint of them for today's culture.  These songs do that. They take the old and give it a fresh interpretation for today.  

All of these tunes and the album are available on Itunes.

This post is part of Watercooler Wednesday over on Randy Elrod's site, Ethos.
