SONG: Believe He Lives (Sovereign Hope Music)
charts | story | albums

This is a wonderful new song from Sovereign Hope Music (Missoula, MT) that seeks to meditate on the Resurrection and the Ascension. Here is a quote from their site.

“In closing the “Mercy’s Throne” project it was important to us that we would not only celebrate the bodily resurrection of Jesus from the grave, but that we’d also rejoice in his ascension. At the cross, Christ was the perfect sacrifice for our sin. This alone is cause for wonder and endless praise, but he is so much more than just a sacrifice.”
