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.

  • Finally Free - Rend Collective

    Your mercy rains from heaven
    Like confetti at a wedding
    And I am celebrating
    In the downpour

    Your heart is wild with colour
    Like a never-ending summer
    You burn away the winter
    Of my cold and weary heart

    My soul cries out holy, holy
    My heart is lost in Your beauty
    All hope is found in Your mercy
    You paid the price now I am
    Finally free

    Your grace, oh God's the anchor
    That's holding me forever
    Come trouble or high water
    I am steadfast

    Yeah, you lift me when I'm sinking
    Like the swell of mighty oceans
    The power of redemption
    Yeah, it gives me wings to soar

    My soul cries out holy, holy
    My heart is lost in Your beauty
    All hope is found in Your mercy
    You paid the price now I am
    Finally free

    We'll cast our crowns before Him
    Like the rusting leaves of autumn
    Now every chain lies broken
    And finally we're free

    My soul cries out holy, holy
    My heart is lost in Your beauty
    All hope is found in Your mercy
    You paid the price now I am
    Finally free

    Ephesians 2:4-5 –“But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.”

    Galatians 5:1a –”It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.”

    Finally Free - Rend Collective

    When listening to the lyrics of a song, there’s typically one line that’ll grip me as unique. It rarely happens in the opening line of a song though. With Rend Collective’s song Finally Free, that is exactly what happened. I was completely caught up by the picture drawn by the words, “Your mercy rains from heaven like confetti at a wedding”.

    Can you picture it? Can you see yourself in the downpour of mercy straight from the Father? He has covered us all in His mercy – His “compassionate or kindly forbearance shown toward an offender” (Dictionary.com). We are the offenders. We don’t deserve mercy. But, for His glory, He has bestowed it upon us and called us to share the freedom we have in Christ to all the ends of the world.

    And, indeed we are just that: free.

    Free to live our lives with purpose.

    Free to be an example to those we interact with.

    Free to stumble, fall and fail but to get back up again.

    Free to be forgiven.

    Free to bring glory to God.

    Because of our salvation in Jesus Christ, we have been freed from our sin, we are being freed from our sin, and we will live eternally free from our sin. Let the chains that were unlocked with Christ’s shed blood fall away. Walk in the freedom we have in Christ. May your soul join mine in singing of His holiness when we are Finally Free.
