If you love good worship music then you are probably a fan of Hillsong United. In the last year or so they shot to the top of the charts with “Oceans (Where Feet May Fall)” but this group has been around for a while. UNITED is committed to writing songs that speak truth, create a unique sound, connect with churches, individuals and ultimately connect people everywhere with God. UNITED serve in church as a part of the wider Hillsong Worship and Creative team when they are home. When on tour, they are accompanied by the whole Hillsong team’s support and prayers that their ministry would arrest hearts and point people to Jesus, impacting individuals, local youth groups and local churches.Their newest album “Empires” releases May 26. We have been listening to it for a few days now and while it isn’t jumping to the top of my favorites list, it is a solid album with deep lyrics.
“Empires” is a more mellow, introspective worship album with a lot of similar sounding songs. There are no real upbeat songs on this projects and we often found ourselves unable to focus on the lyrics because the music lost our interest. There are 12 tracks on this CD.
- Here Now (Madness)
- Say The Word
- Heart Like Heaven
- Touch The Sky
- Street Called Mercy
- When I Lost My Heart To You (Hallelujah)
- Even When It Hurts (Praise Song)
- Prince Of Peace
- Closer Than You Know
My favorite tracks are 4-Touch the Sky and 7-Even When it Hurts (Praise Song). Here is the official lyric video for “Touch the Sky”, I hope you enjoy it.
“Empires” is a great album for personal worship and meditation times with lyrics like:
“Even when my strength is lost
I’ll praise you
Even when I have no song
I’ll praise you
Even when it’s hard to find the words
Louder then I’ll sing your praise”-Even When it Hurts (Praise Song)
These songs touch your soul with lyrics that speak about life and to the Giver of Life.
