Hope College Worship – Thy Love Unfailing – Songs for Lent

Every semester one of my worship teams at Hope College will record a few songs for the current church season. Last month in the midst of crazy work on our yearly worship CD we recorded a few retuned hymns for Lent/Holy Week. Most of my students have no idea about the retuned hymn movement so it was fun to see them working to meld our chapel style of ambient modern rock to tunes I had written. Hope you enjoy.
