One of my favorite bands is Caedmon's Call. I've loved them from the day my ears heard their first note. Not only do they sound good but their songs are hard, true, and deep. Their newest album, Overdressed, doesn't disappoint. My favorite on this project is track three - Sacred (lyrics below). If you're a mom, you'll find this song comforting. It exposes my sin, shouts the truth about my role, and, most importantly, points me to Christ. Enjoy.


this house is a good mess
it’s the proof of life
no way would I trade jobs
but it don’t pay overtime

I’ll get to the laundry
I don’t know when
I’m saying a prayer tonight
cause tomorrow it starts again

could it be that everything is sacred?
and all this time
everything I’ve dreamed of
has been right before my eyes

the children are sleeping
but they’re running through my mind
the sun makes them happy
and the music makes them unwind

my cup runneth over
and I worry about the stain
teach me to run to You
like they run to me for every little thing

when I forget to drink from you
I can feel the banks harden
Lord, make me like a stream
to feed the garden

wake up, little sleeper
the Lord, God Almighty
made your Mama keeper
so rise and shine

I blogged about this song a few days's soooo great! Sometimes I listen on my CD player and just hit "repeat" so it plays over and over again...
