"Holy Roar" by Chris Tomlin (CD review)

Chris released this full studio album on October 26, 2018, along with a companion book, Holy Roar: 7 Words That Will Change the Way You Worship, which released on October 23, 2018. According to Chris, "Holy Roar is the freedom, the experience, the wonder of worship. It is seeing the church come together, hands lifted to God, pouring out our praise with an eternal song in our hearts. It's every voice together, changing the way we worship."

My review...

Chris Tomlin is, by far, one of my favorite worship leaders. Over the years, I've sung many of his songs at church, and they never fail to move me. I saw him in concert a few years ago, and it was one of the most inspirational concerts I've ever attended. His lyrics are so powerful, and that continue to be the case with his latest release, Holy Roar. Music is one of the ways I feel closest to God, and this album is a perfect addition to my worship time. 

While I love all the songs on this new CD, my favorites include: ""Satisfied," "Resurrection Power," and  "Praise Him Forever." Here is a sampling of the songs/lyrics:

"I count my blessings one by one
Your goodness in my life
How could I ask for more
In You I'm satisfied"
- "Satisfied"

"Now I have resurrection power
Living on the inside
Jesus, You have given us freedom
No longer bound by sin and darkness
Living in the light of Your goodness
You have given us freedom"
- "Resurrection Power"

"Let everything that breathes
Let all the earth proclaim
Great is the Lord our God
Praise Him forever
Let all that is within me
Magnify His name
Great is the Lord our God
Praise Him forever"
-"Praise Him Forever"
