We're big fans of Sovereign Grace music at RFC. While looking through Bob Kauflin's blog I came across these gems. I love how the animation can help lyrics spring to life and as Bob K puts it "Good art has a way of pointing our eyes to what matters most." I hope these clips stir you as they did me

The Gospel Song - Sovereign Grace

Holy God in love became
Perfect man to bear my blame
On the cross he took my sin
By his death I live again.

The Prodigal - Sovereign Grace

You held out Your arms, I walked away
Insolent I spurned Your face
Squandering the gifts You gave to me
Holding close forbidden things
Destitute a rebel still, a fool in all my pride
The world I once enjoyed is death to me
No joy, no hope, no life

Where now are the friends, that I had bought
Gone with every penny lost
What hope could there be for such as I
Sold out to a world of lies
Oh, to see Your face again, it seems so distant now
Could it be that You would take me back
A servant in Your house

You held out Your arms, I see them still
You never left, You never will
Running to embrace me, now I know
Your cords of love will always hold
Mercy’s robe, a ring of grace
Such favor undeserved
You sing over me and celebrate
The rebel now Your child

These last two are by Casting Crowns and Starfield respectively with a more theme of encouragement to those struggling.
