"The Garden" ... a new release from Kari Jobe

My review...

Worship leader Kari Jobe’s fourth album is an inspirational collection of songs which are perfect for personal reflection. The album is peaceful overall, creating a spirit of worship which will bring the listener closer to God.

The deluxe edition contains fourteen songs, many with reminders of finding hope amid tragedy. Her songs demonstrate how God can turn any situation around, making it a thing of beauty. Two of the songs feature vocals by her husband, Cody Carnes.

The album contains some congregational anthems, as is typical of many of Jobe’s career-defining songs, such as “Fall Afresh,” “Heal our Land,” and “Closer to Your Heart.” Two songs on the album are cover songs: “Miracles” by Jesus Culture and “Here as in Heaven” by Elevation Church.

Some of my favorite lyrics include:

  • “Then I saw the garden, hope had come to me” (“The Garden”)
  • “Lord, would you hear our cry. Lord, will you heal our land. That every eye will see, that every heart will know, the One who took our sin, the One who died and rose” (“Heal our Land”)
  • “For the Lord is, He is able, He is faithful. Higher than the mountains that I face. Every season I will press on, for God alone is on the throne” (“On the Throne”)

Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this album. I was not required to leave a positive review.
