Music You Should Listen To: Rend Collective Experiment

March 5, 2012

Tonight I am doing something different than I usually do. Tonight I am going to talk about music. I love music. I like all kinds of music and last night I enjoyed an entire evening of music. I went to the Rock and Worship Roadshow featuring Disciple, Hawk Nelson, Sidewalk Prophets, Tenth Avenue North, MercyMe, and Lecrae. My oh my, if you have never seen any of those people live, that should change. Lecrae, being Lecrae, was incredible. My favorite Christian band, Tenth Avenue North was seriously incredible. I screamed their lyrics on the top of my lungs and was just blessed by their ministry. Then there was the opening act. The opening band was a band all the way from Ireland. Rend Collective Experiment is an Irish Christian band filled with Irish accents, snappy dressers, some crazy percussion instrument, fantastic lyrics, and very folky music with guitar rhythms not dissimilar to Mumford and Sons. They sang of the cross, salvation, and revival. They seriously deserve to have more people listen to them so I am posting one of my favorite songs by them and the lyrics to that song. Feel awesome.

Come set Your rule and reign
In our hearts again
Increase in us we pray
Unveil why we’re made
Come set our hearts ablaze with hope
Like wildfire in our very souls
Holy Spirit come invade us now
We are Your Church
We need Your power
In us

We seek Your kingdom first
We hunger and we thirst
Refuse to waste our lives
For You’re our joy and prize
To see the captive hearts released
The hurt; the sick; the poor at peace
We lay down our lives for Heaven’s cause
We are Your church
We pray revive
This Earth

Build Your kingdom here
Let the darkness fear
Show Your mighty hand
Heal our streets and land
Set Your church on fire
Win this nation back
Change the atmosphere
Build Your kingdom here
We pray

Unleash Your kingdom’s power
Reaching the near and far
No force of hell can stop
Your beauty changing hearts
You made us for much more than this
Awake the kingdom seed in us
Fill us with the strength and love of Christ
We are Your church
We are the hope
On Earth

Also here is a video of them playing at another Rock and Worship Roadshow stop.

So good.
