Beautiful Things

I’ve been enjoying the simple yet beautiful sounds of Gungor recently – their songs are usually based around a few key lines repeated, which may not sound like a ringing endorsement, but it works. The fact that the lyrics are often so poetically crafted makes it no hardship to listen to and reflect on what’s being sung! Why not check out their song ‘Beautiful Things’ from this YouTube clip of a live recording they did…

    Really really like this!! Are they Christian?

    Yeah – they say this on their website – “This album is an expression of hope that God will make beautiful things out of the dust in our lives, that God will somehow use us, use our obedience and love, our feeble human effort, and build Himself a kingdom.” It also says that as their ideas of what God is like changed, their ideas of church, service and what living the Christian life is about changed too. Interesting, non?

    I came across them fairly recently, really like the sound of them, especially this song and ‘Dry Bones’ as well. They’ve just been nominated for a Grammy for their second album, which is also pretty good. 🙂
