The Garden


Kari Jobe, a Christian music figure, has just released her latest album, entitled “The Garden”.  This is an album mostly consisting of prayers put to music, and they are great to meditate on while doing your devotional or studying to enhance your time with God and enter into an atmosphere of worship with Him.  Birthed out of a hard time, as I listened I was moved by the raw honesty and genuineness with which Kari Jobe sings the songs on this album.

Songs include:

  1. The Garden

What an enthralling song about the intimacy we have in Christ and His pursuit of us. The acoustic version especially is very calming.

2. Let Your Glory Fall

“Let Your Glory Fall” is a beautiful prayer put to song, like much of this album.  You can really hear the genuine appeal for God to dwell among us in this song and those following it.

3. Heal Our Land

“Heal Our Land” is a beautiful prayer put to song.

4. Lover of My Soul

Truly, the meanings of most of these songs are communicated through their titles, and many of these are prayers put to music, so it is hard to describe them without printing out the lyrics, as they repeat a lot.

5. Speak to Me

Another haunting beautiful, prayerful melody.

6. Fall Afresh

This song prays for the spirit of God to “fall afresh” on us.

7. I Will Sing

This song is a beautiful declaration of faith in God even in the midst of hard times.  It proclaims the goodness and faithfulness of God, and it is the perfect anthem for anyone struggling to keep their hopes up.

8. Miracles

This song is a declaration of our belief in a God who has and still does perform miracles.

9. Closer to Your Heart

This song is a duet with Cody Carnes, who I believe is her husband, and it talks about how God is drawing us closer to His heart.

10. Oh The Power

This song praises the power of Christ’s blood and sacrifice on the cross for us.

11. The Cause of Christ

The theme of “The Cause of Christ” is what we would do for Christ after all that He has done for us.

Some of these are duets with Cody Carnes, and all are beautiful!

You can find the Deluxe Edition, which includes three additional songs, here. Or, you can stream the album through Spotify.
