All creatures of our God and King
Lift up your voice and with us sing

Oh, praise Him!
Alleluia!

Thou burning sun with golden beam
Thou silver moon with softer gleam

Oh, praise Him!
Oh, praise Him!
Alleluia!
Alleluia!
Alleluia!

    For me, this must've been the first hymn turned into a such a beautiful modern composition. I own the CD that this song is on, and it's my favorite.

    Music expressing any religious belief is tolerable for me when done well and doesn't press it's belief upon me.

    This song is very touching, inspiring, and son beautiful. It makes me think of how much in love, I am with God/Jesus. I am 19 years old and have never had a boyfriend. I think of the day when God will reveal my true love to me when the time comes. Love can go in so many directions,can either be negative, or positive. This song is praising God for loving us so much, and caring about our every need, and every desire in our hearts. We praise him for everything he has planned happens in the right place, in the right way, at the right time, and on the exact day. God has someone trule specail for me, and everyone else who is looking for someone to share there lives with, thats one of the reasons people get the desire to be married, to have someone there for you no matter what, you'/l always have someone praying, waiting,loving, understanding, comforting, friendly, compassionate, humble, merciful, and supportive of every decision you make, holds you accountable for the promises you made to complete the work the Lord calls us to do, to remind you that everything is okay, don't be affraid, take the step of faith, trust in God, and do everything he calls you to do. You will never feel or be alone when you're married, because there's someone there for you. This song I think in a way describes the beauty of love from God, and for us to praise him because of the promises, and blessings he'll give to us to meet out desires, and overwhelm us with so much happiness, that we can't think of anything else to do but praise him, with joy, and excitement. Thanking, and acknowledging him for being to extraordinarily extravagant, and amazing all the time, for he's with us all the time.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
