I’m Loving This: Chris Tomlin’s New Album “Burning Lights”
Written by Christi Given | February 9, 2013
Chris Tomlin, a very well-known and humble worship leader, recently released his latest album, “Burning Lights.” Tomlin has been awarded 16 Dove Awards, has been nominated for three Grammy Awards, and has been on the top of the charts for his amazing songs. In fact, his new album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart!
Burning Lights debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. With more than 72,000 units sold, Burning Lights marks Tomlin’s first trip to the top of the Billboard 200 and only the fourth time in history that a Christian music album has entered that chart at No. 1.
Burning Lights is only the fourth Christian album to ever hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Eye on It became the third just last year — and the first in 15 years (Billboard).
Some of the great songs off Tomlin’s latest album include “Crown Him (Majesty)” featuring Kari Jobe, “God’s Great Dance Floor,” “Awake My Soul” featuring Lecrae, “Jesus, Son of God” featuring Christy Nockels, “Shepherd Boy,” “White Flag” and more!
Listen to “Whom Shall I Fear (God of Angel Armies),” one of the first singles Tomlin released:
“Awake My Soul” featuring Lecrae is one of my favorite songs! Here are some of the lyrics:
Awake, awake, awake my soul, God resurrect these bones
From death to life, for you alone , Awake my soul
Lecrae: “Then He said to me, ’Prophesy to these bones and say to them,
Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! ’ “
This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones,
I will make breath into you,
And you will come to life…
Yeah, I’m not alone, I realize
I breathe out, I come alive
Your word gives life to my dry bones
Your breath tells death it can ride on
Awake me, make me- a living stone,
A testament to your throne,
I-I’m nothing without you, I’m on my own
The only one who satisfies my soul…
