My Deep Roots record is – strictly speaking – a hymns project. So while “How Deep The Father’s Love” was only written 20 years ago, I knew it would fit in beautifully with a set of older, classic songs of the Christian faith.
In the studio, we went with a pretty simple arrangement that slowly rose to a dramatic conclusion; “His wounds have paid my ransom” – a lyric that answers the question asked by the title. Rachael Lampa provided some beautiful, heart-felt harmonies, and it quickly became one of my favorite tracks on the record.
What are some other modern worship songs that you feel could stand alongside great hymns of the faith? Comment below, y’all.
