My business owner friends had a stack of CD's and a CD player, and when I was there working, I listened to several of them. Soon I found there was one that I looked forward to hearing each time -- I often had free choice of music because I was there working alone, and so I listened to this CD every time, first thing.
I enjoyed the Christian praise lyrics, and also the wonderful rhythms and melodies in the songs on this CD. I even purchased the same CD myself, because I wanted to be able to play it at home. This is an older album--it was released by Vertical Music in 1998. I had to hunt to find a used CD, although digital files are available through all the main music distributers.
Now I just found out in researching this musician, that Darrell Evans has written and recorded many more songs. His first album was in 1997, and he has created 10 other albums. Some became Christian music "hits," like "Let the River Flow" (1997) and "Trading My Sorrows" (2002).
I'd heard one of the songs on the "You Are, I Am" album before, during worship in church, but everything else was new to me. As I listened to this album again and again (every time I went to work-- once a week, then later less often) certain songs seemed to call out to me; and I was not just enjoying listening, but started wanting to learn the words and guitar chords so I could sing and play them myself. One of these was a song called "You Are, I Am"(the title song for the album).
The lyrics are like a beautiful poem-- and they are a series of metaphors -- "if you are (this) then I am (that) . . ."
I found a video on YouTube made by Patrick Cruz, that illustrates this song; I think it is also great to just listen and think about what the words are saying.
