Luminate, “Innocent”

Contemporary Christian ambient rock band Luminate has released Innocent, the carrier single of its new album, Come Home. Guys, I am so psyched for this release! Innocent is instantly catchy. The drum beat is, IMHO, a gentle throwback to the 80s, a nice pulsing beat that explodes into this majestic, singalong chorus that is immediately memorable. If Healing In Your Arms was a sign of things to come, then Illuminate has arrived! The Tyler, TX band has worked it out with this paean to the forgiveness afforded us in Jesus; its message of hope and reconciliation needs to be heard by more people. I strongly, strongly recommend Innocent be entered into Christian AC and Christian CHR playlists across the USA.

INNOCENT Lyrics
Luminate

What if You would’ve never sent Your Son
What if You held back Your love
It would be so different there would be no hope for us
But that’s not the way it all went down
We’re covered by mercy now
Could’ve found us guilty but You chose to save us

We are, we are, we are innocent
We are, we are blameless
‘Cause You take all the shame
And You wash it away
‘Til we are, we are innocent

You make us, You make us, You make us innocent
You make us, You make us, You make us innocent

So we can finally rest tonight
We can finally say goodbye
To the past that held us
To the fear that ruled our lives
I know we’re gonna fall sometimes
Nobody’s got a perfect life
Could’ve found us guilty but You chose to save us
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/l/luminate/innocent.html ]
We are, we are, we are innocent
We are, we are blameless
‘Cause You take all the shame
And You wash it away
‘Til we are, we are innocent

You make us, You make us, You make us innocent
You make us, You make us, You make us innocent

We are dancing ’cause we know we’re Yours
You are, oh, You’re what we’re living for
We were lost, oh yea, but now we’re coming home, we’re coming home

You make us, You make us, You make us innocent
You make us, You make us, You make us innocent

We are, we are, we are innocent
We are, we are blameless
‘Cause You take all the shame
And You wash it away
‘Til we are, we are innocent

You make us, You make us, You make us innocent
You make us, You make us, You make us innocent

You make us, You make us, You make us innocent
You make us, You make us, You make us innocent
