This is the second song to appear here and title track from Hillsong’s record For All You’ve Done. You can find more information about the record in the article Evermore which came out Jan 6 this year. This evangelical Christian album album peaked at No1 on the mainstream music charts in Australia and the media were interviewing the Hillsong leaders and lead-singer Darlene Zschech (singer of today’s song) to know what all the fuss was about.
For All You’ve Done is the thirteenth album in the live praise and worship series of contemporary worship music by Hillsong Church. The album was recorded at the Sydney Entertainment Centre with production by Darlene Zschech, Raymond Badham, Joel Houston and Reuben Morgan. The latter singer-songwriter I had the good fortune to meet for dinner at the Mornington Baptist church and operate the Computer powerpoints during his show. More songs will appear from both Hillsong and Reuben Morgan as a solo performer.
My Savior, Redeemer
Lifted me from the miry clay
I will never be the same ’cause You came near
From the everlasting
To the world we live
The Father’s only Son
You lived and You died
You rose again on high
You opened the way
For the world to live again
For all You’ve done
Some have called it the golden era of Hillsong the early 2000’s with so many beautiful tracks. Someone mentioned in the you tube comments: ‘I don’t get it; where did this style go? Why did it go away? What happened‘? This album For All You’ve Done hasn’t got a mediocre track on it. I can account that these concerts have a strong social atmosphere and a dynamic religious service with upbeat music that emulates a secular music concert.
The Fader web site stated: Hillsong is one of the largest evangelical Christian churches in the world. What began as a small pentecostal church in a suburb of Sydney now holds services on all six habitable continents, with 30 locations and more than 80 affiliated campuses. More than 100,000 people are estimated to attend Hillsong church services every week, including Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Nick Jonas, and the Jenner sisters. According to the church, for every person attending in person three more watch online.
