” Hillsong Young & Free – the sound of today’s young people – ALIVE and walking in their God-given freedom, confident of who they are in Christ.”

When I first heard about it, I was some sort of skeptical because honestly, I felt like this is conforming to the patterns of this world. But when I heard the songs, I guess I was wrong. This is the sound of the new generation of young worshipers. Hillsong’s senior pastor, Brian Houston, invited all worshipers to open their hearts to this new sound. After all, the psalmist exhorted us to sing a new song to God; to let our lips declare His praise and worship, and maybe even break out from our old mindsets; and allow the joy and vibrancy of youth to give us an even greater love for Jesus Christ.

The lyrics were liberating, not to mention that the melodies and arrangements were great. The songs speak of grace and mercy and love – but in a different, more modern package. Among the fast praise tracks in this new release, I liked Alive and Wake. But I instantly fell in love with the solemnity and sincerity of Sinking Deep.

“Your love so deep
Is washing over me
Your face is all I seek
You are my everything

Jesus Christ
You are my one desire
Lord hear my only cry
To know You all my life”
