Prayers Wrapped in Songs: Lyric Videos

These lyric videos represent an attempt to “find Christ in all things”. Through this contemporary medium, it is hoped that the Word of God can still be made audible and visible in a world filled with noise and shadow. Diverse in themes and in style, in tempo and flavor, these videos hope to reawaken that sense of wonder in a God who is all-too-wondrous.
