When we hear the truth of who we are in Christ, we stand taller in the light of God’s love. These God-inspired songs of hope and encouragement do exactly that, as well as explaining what He asks of us. Full lyrics come with the physical album or are available free from her web-site.
Fans’ comments: “Thank you for reminding me that a ‘heart that’s lost the will to sing is like a butterfly with a broken wing.’ Your music is mending my heart and growing in me a desire to sing His praises all day long!!” “The lyrics, the music and the instrumentation - it all fits together in the most astounding way!” “So beautiful, meaningful & comforting ... . I have no doubt your music has encouraged & comforted & uplifted so many of God's people”.
‘The Kingdom Shall Shine’, ‘In The Light’, ‘Another Day’ and ‘Children Of Tomorrow’ particularly cause us to stand in God’s sunshine, praising Him. The words of Rev 21:4, at the beginning of ‘Children of Tomorrow’ are endearingly spoken by three year old, Victoria Robertson.
‘A Pillar In The House’, from Sonia’s first album, is re-done here in a cleaner and tighter version bringing fresh enjoyment.
Be held in the Father’s arms by ‘I Will Keep You’ and ‘Be Not Afraid My People’; let your feet tap to the catchy, Jewish-style ‘My Rock and Strength’ and join with the singer in ‘I Belong to You’, a moving love song to God (“Nothing can part this love that we are sharing”). Interestingly, the original lyrics of the latter mentioned song were completely rewriten by Sonia during the first night she arrived in Australia for the recording. Waking from sleep, she felt inspired to make such a dramatic change, when new lyrics came flooding into her mind.
This album was recorded May-Aug. 2003 at 'Windsong Corp. Pty Ltd' studio, Brisbane, Australia.
Late in 2002, Geoffrey Robertson, an old college friend and musician who had played and sung on her first album, agreed to record Sonia’s next album in his studio. She’d written to him just at the point he’d decided to get back into the music business. So she travelled to Australia delighted to have this new adventure and opportunity. They worked well together
and Sonia personally considers this fourth album to be the closest to what she’d had in mind.
The quality is certainly very fine and the arrangements beautifully marry with the loveliness of her songs.
