Josh Garrels

PLEASE check him out if you haven't already. His lyrics and music rock. Does that last sentence date me? Probably. I digress. His new album "Love & War & The Sea In Between" is amazing. And it's a free download with the option to give a donation! In other words, his album is FREE! Who can resist that? Seriously. Amazing. PLEASE. Check him out.

"Cause I been changed by what I been shown,
it's more glory than the world has known,
keeps me rambling on"

"...I wonder why
the good man dies, the bad man thrives
and Jesus cries because he loves em both,
we're all castaways in need of rope."

"No one comes unless they're drawn
By the voice of desire that leads 'em along
To the redemption of what went wrong
By the blood that covers the innocent one
No more separation
Between us."
