Sandra (Beneath the Cross of Jesus, Thy Mercy, and Awake My Soul) McCracken is responsible for a few songs we already sing at church. Just pressed play on her new album of “new old hymns” and I’m sure that we will be singing some of these at Norco in the future. Only $7.99 for 15 songs.
Sandra gives new melody to old words from long beloved hymn writers such as Martin Luther, Anne Steele, and John Newton as well as a few others. With help from her husband Derek Webb and friend, Chelsey Scott this stands as McCrackens best musical work as well.
Theologically rich, the songs expound on God’s sovereign will, God’s Justice, Gods grace, Christ’s beauty, our depravity, our hope in times of plenty and in times of want, humility, and our assurance of grace and mercy in Christs work.
