Rend Collective has released the effervescent Joy of the Lord, a truly enjoyable pop/rock romp that combines Irish folk inclinations with Scripture to produce an delightful praise anthem, one of my favorite tracks so far this 2016.
Psalm 28:7 says, “The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.” Rend Collective’s Joy of the Lord brings this verse to bold, ebullient life, with banjos and hurdy-hurdy’s underscoring the outburst of praise, exclaimed in a chorus that invites worshipers to sing and absolutely refuses to let go.
Written by Rend Collective with songwriter/producer Ed Cash, known best for his work with Chris Tomlin, the biggest strength of Joy of the Lord is its passionate declaration of trust in a God Who will see us through our trials and tribulations. Christians going through a valley season will appreciate and delight in its biblical truth and irresistible call to worship.
