Saturday Shuffle #2: Oceans

I remember the first time I heard this song (Oceans by Hillsong United). I was at my giant mega church in South Carolina (MISS YOU NEWSPRING!) and I remember thinking, I like this, it’s very pretty (Hillsong music usually is) and then it got to the “Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders” section and I just started crying. The words are so meaningful, and the melody is simple but haunting. Hillsong writes such melodically gorgeous songs and their lyrics are deep and thought provoking (which is rather unusual in the slew of pandering Christian Music these days – don’t get me wrong, it’s not all bad. I just think Hillsong is exceptional). I would love someday to attend Hillsong Church in Australia; I have friends who have gone and they just loved it.

Have you had the immense joy of singing this song? Let me know how it made you feel in the comments!

    I love that album! Nothing Like Your Love and Tapestry are two of my favorites. Love Hillsong Y&F (young and free), too, and my favorite Hillsong album to write or clean and whatnot to is the Hillsong White album… it’s a great remix of their songs that are kind of like white noise (hence the title, I’m sure), pretty different from the usual, but awesome at the same time. (I totally want to get that one on vinyl!)
