Soul Crescendo

Soul Crescendo

by Carolyn Majoran

Soul Crescendo was birthed out of my love for God as well as music that lifts up His name. While my musical taste may be somewhat eclectic, I pray you will find the blogs shared here to be an encouragement to you. Let the simple truths of God’s greatness and the music that brings Him glory be a balm to your soul. To Him be the glory always.

  • Remember – Passion featuring Brett Younker & Melodie Malone

    My heart hangs on every word that You speak
    I need You, Lord come find me, Holy Spirit breathe
    I've been walking through deserts
    I need more of Your Presence
    I'm weak, Savior be my strength

    Down in the valley, when waters rise
    I'm still believing
    Hope is alive
    All through the struggle and darkest day
    I'll remember the empty grave

    Your touch bringing me closer
    Your hand healing what’s broken
    My prayer, Father meet me here
    My life for all of Your glory
    Your grace let it surround me
    Let faith change the atmosphere

    Down in the valley, when waters rise
    I'm still believing
    Hope is alive
    All through the struggle and darkest day
    I'll remember the empty grave

    Hallelujah, death is done
    All of hell is overcome
    Jesus, You are alive

    Down in the valley, when waters rise
    I'm still believing
    Hope is alive
    All through the struggle and darkest day
    I'll remember the empty grave

    Matthew 28:6 – “He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.”

    Romans 5:1-2 – “Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God.”

    The empty grave. Oh, the hope that we can find in the promise of those words. Our Saviour, Jesus Christ, sacrificed Himself on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins. And, amazingly, rose from the dead! Our sins are forgiven. Our God is alive. We have so much to be thankful for this Easter season.

    Having been raised in a Christian home and come to a saving faith at an early age, I can’t even imagine my life without it centering on Christ. I certainly endured times of doubt and faithlessness during my life, but never to the point of turning my back on my faith. God has held me close to Himself and He’s held me together over the years. He keeps me pressing on as He shapes me into the person He desires me to be.

    I can’t help but think about the many people in this world, and particularly the few I have personal contact with, that don’t find their hope in Christ. Do they look at my life and not see something different within me? Are they not pointed to Christ because of my life? I hope and pray that my fallible humanity would not turn someone from faith. That somehow Christ would still shine through me despite my failings.

    The lyrics of this Passion song speak so truthfully to so many areas of my life but I find the bridge the most powerful. “Hallelujah, death is done. All of hell is overcome. Jesus, You are alive.” Indeed, we serve a risen Saviour. The grave could not hold Him. He has conquered death. This is the powerful God that we have access to as Christ followers. Amazing!

    May you consider these lyrics this week and not let the wonder of the resurrection be lost on you. May you find renewed amazement in all that Christ has done to save us. May you remember along with me the empty grave.
