|Title: Introducing Stuart Townend|
Release date: February 2010
Stuart Townend is one of the finest and most recognized ‘modern hymn writers’ in the world today. His distinctive lyrics are rich in theology and poetry and have infiltrated the worshipping life of the church worldwide. ‘In Christ Alone’ and ‘How Deep The Father’s Love’ are currently both in the US top 50 most sung worship songs.
His ability to craft songs with great lyrics and accessible melodies has caused some to draw comparisons with the greats of previous generations such as Watts and Wesley. “It is so important that our lives are built not on our feelings or circumstances, but on the word of God, and songs can really help us to meditate on and retain truth. I know from the correspondence I regularly receive that if you can express in songs the profound truth of the gospel in a poetic yet accessible way, they really can have an impact in people’s lives.” Stuart Townend
