David Crowder Band Tribute Part 2 from the Mrs.

The Mr. failed to tell you that the reason we are sharing The David Crowder Band with you is because we are going to see them in concert in 6 DAYS!!!! We bought tickets several months ago for the show in Austin not even realizing it is opening night of their last tour together as a band!! And it's sold out. It's going to be HUGE! We saw them in concert for their Church Music tour in Tampa, FL and it was One of the funnest nights we've ever had. And we've had a lot of fun. ;)

One of the things I love about David Crowder (other than how hilarious he is) is that I see him more as a worship leader than a recording artist, especially having experienced a night of worship with him. He wrote a book called "Praise Habit, Finding God in Sunsets and Sushi." If you haven't read it, go pick up a copy this weekend.. it's pretty short and a quick read. But he writes about how the goodness of God is found in ALL things and we were created for the sole purpose of praising Him. And what it looks like to live a life where praise is a habit. His writing style in the book (much like his songs) is so unique and his way with words is unlike anything I've ever read.

"O Praise Him" is one of their older songs, but it's one of my all time favorites... (lyrics are below)

Turn your ear
To Heaven and hear
The noise inside
The sound of angels awe
The sound of angels' songs
And all this for a King
We could join and sing
'All to Christ our King!'

How constant
How divine
This song of ours will rise
Oh, how constant
How divine
This love of ours will rise
Will rise...

Ohh praise Him!
Ohh praise Him!
He is Holy!
He is Holy!

Turn your gaze
To Heaven and raise
A joyous noise
Oh the sound of salvation come
The sound of rescued ones
And all this for a king
Angels join to sing
'All for Christ our King!' 


Oh la la la la la la..
Oh la la la la la la..
Oh la la la la la... laaa laa laa laaa!


How infinite and sweet
This love so rescuing
Oh how infinitely sweet
This great love that has redeemed
As one, we sing...

He is Holy, 
He is Holy
