Today’s song comes from one the best Christian rock albums ever made. The only problem is I could only find one of the 12 songs from Reflescent Tide’s Spring Catalog on the internet. Which means that most Christians have been deprived from ever listening to this classic sound. Reflescent Tide is the Green Day of Christian music. Spring Catalog includes hit songs like Seven Days, Butterfly Wings and Basking in the Glow.
Is anyone among you afflicted (ill-treated, suffering evil)? He should pray. Is anyone glad at heart? He should sing praise [to God], James 5:13.
I stumbled upon Reflescent Tide while serving as a youth pastor in the mid-west. If I had access to a CD, I’d download 10 of the 12 songs immediately to my computer. Yet, for now my only proof that list band exists is a cassette tape. The lyrics of today’s song Leaving talks about how Jesus had to leave the Garden of Gethsemane as a prisoner in order to carry out God’s will. The thought of laying down his life brought Jesus to his knees as his sweat became like blood. May Leaving touch your soul as you listen.
