faith without deeds is dead.



Albertine.


I can't get this song out of my head or off my heart. It's really convicting so before you listen, I'm just warning you... there's an even greater calling for your life in this song and I pray you'll be moved to seek it out.

In Luke 12:48 is says: "From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked."

Brooke was on the show recently and when talking about the title track off her latest album, here's the story she told: click here to listen.

Here are the lyrics:
"I am sitting still
I think of Angelique
her mothers voice over me
And the bullets in the wall where it fell silent
And on a thousandth hill, I think of Albertine
there in her eyes what I don't see with my own
Rwanda

Now that I have seen, I am responsible
Faith without deeds is dead
Now that I have held you in my own arms, I cannot let go till you are

I am on a plane across a distant sea
But I carry you in me
And the dust on, the dust on, the dust on my feet
Rwanda
I will tell the world, I will tell them where I've been

I will keep my word I will tell them Albertine

I am on a stage, a thousand eyes on me
I will tell them, Albertine
I will tell them, Albertine"
