"Great hymns have been my life-long reminders of the deep foundations of truth," shares Chris Rice. "I still often wake up in the middle of the night with a hymn I learned in childhood, suddenly singing in my head. It is a privilege to add my voice to these songs, and bring even more attention to their life-changing words for new generations of listeners."
This album features a dozen well-loved classics that have been given new life, including Rice’s own “Untitled Hymn (Come to Jesus).” This powerful new collection promises to build on that success. Classic songs such as “Leaning On the Everlasting Arms” and “Fairest Lord Jesus” are gently reimagined while staying true to the original tunes one fondly remembers. The spare guitar on “What a Friend We Have in Jesus” gives the classic hymn a rough-hewn, Americana feel, while Rice’s piano-driven take on “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross” is nothing short of a church service. A jangly version of “This Is My Father’s World” conjures up early Rice releases, and a children’s choir adds extra heart to “Hallelujah, What a Savior.
