I could sit and listen to Steven Curtis Chapman sing all day long. I’ve been a fan for quite some time. So, when I got the opportunity to review his new album – Steven Curtis Chapman #1s Volume 1 – I jumped at the chance. It was a given that there would be more than a few songs on the album that I would love. And guess what? I was exactly right!
Here are the songs included on the CD that released on April 3rd:
- Lord of the Dance
- More to this Life
- The Great Adventure
- I Will be Here
- Go There with You
- God is God
- Fingerprints of God
- Be Still and Know
- Magnificent Obsession
- All Things New
- Bonus Track: Cinderella
Love, love, love these songs! My absolute favorite song on the CD is “I Will Be Here” because it was part of my wedding day. Back in 2002, I was on a mission to find the perfect song for part of our wedding ceremony. When I happened across that song, I was knew that was it. During the ceremony, hubby and I gave Ashley a locket with her new initials on it and pictures of the three of us inside. Then, we prayed together as a family. While we did that, the song I Will Be Here played in the background. Now, every time I hear that song, I can’t help but smile and think about that moment when we officially became a family. Truth be told, it’s been 10 years, and I still up every time I hear the song. I just love it.
While that song is my favorite, that’s not to say that I don’t love every other song on the album – because I do! I’ve heard all of the songs on the radio over the years, but now it’s great to have so many of my favorites on one album that I can pop into my CD player and listen to whenever I want.
I uploaded all of the songs to my iPod so I can listen to them while I clean the house or work on the computer – in fact, as I type this post, I’ve got the album playing in the background. The CD itself is in my car so that the kids and I can listen to it whenever we go somewhere. This is quickly becoming my favorite new CD, and I’m finding it next to impossible to turn it off!
