Warr Acres "Hope Will Rise" is one of those albums you want to keep on hand. The different styles found within the album are perfect for all types of situations. Some are quiet, worshipful and other are loud, dance your heart out tracks. These songs will lift your spirits and lead you to His feet.

Psalm 27 is a beautifully done, worship in His presence type of song. The soft expressive lyrics lead you to a place where your heart is open to feel Him near. The lyrics encourage you to remember who He is:

I will wait on you 'til my life is through
Taking heart midst highs and lows
May my soul stay strong for it won't be long
You're my hope, you're my hope

Freedom Fall features an up and coming voice many listeners are familiar with- Jonathon Thulin. The song is an electronically driven, pop, get up and dance sound. Despite the lightweight sound, the lyrics are heavenly directed with a request to God:

Hear your people call
Let your freedom fall
We cry for heaven's all
Let your freedom fall

The title track "Hope Will Rise" is a song that is easily envisioned as a large gathering coming together to raise their voices to the heavens. The beginning is a simple statement of who God is that leads into a beautiful rendition of Nothing But The Blood. The song then transitions into a rising proclamation of who we are in Christ. A wonderful reminder of what can happen as we continue to hope in Christ and never give up.

This album has a bit of something for everyone and each song leads you to remember the heart of God and his love for each of us. Take the time to truly listen to the lyrics and worship to our Savior.
