Hey City Harmonic!
I was listening to Air1,Klove's sister station, when I first heard you guys.
SOOO happy Klove is playing it now!!!
One question.
I thought I heard you guys say that there was a mixture of The Apostles Creed, and The Lord's Prayer.
Now, I can hear the Lord's Prayer, but I don't hear the Apostles Creed. Where is that???



                 Your friend, and Klove listener,


                                Lauren.

                 P.S. I turn eleven on the 29th!

Hey Guys

I just heard you talk about True City in your city. That is so exciting.  My church in our small town is trying to do something similar to what your True City is doing and I would love it if you would pray for us and getting this set up in Iowa.

Love you guys

Manifesto is a nice song, but if someone is really looking for a musical version of the Apostles' Creed, I think the song "Creed" by Petra from their 1990 album "Beyond Belief" might be a closer match:  (The tune is nice too.)

Creed
Words and music by Bob Hartman
Based on the Apostle's Creed

I believe in God the Father - maker of heaven and earth
And in Jesus Christ His only Son
I believe in the virgin birth
I believe in the Man of Sorrows bruised for iniquities
I believe in the Lamb who was crucified and hung between two thieves

I believe in the resurrection on the third and glorious day
And I believe in the empty tomb and the stone that the angel rolled away
He descended and set the captives free
And now He sits at God's right hand and prepares a place for me

(Chorus)
This is my creed - the witness I have heard
The faith that has endured
This truth is assured
Through the darkest ages past
Though persecuted, it will last
And I will hold steadfast to this creed

I believe He sent His Spirit to comfort and to reveal
To lead us into the truth and light, to baptize and to seal
I believe that He will come back the way He went away
And receive us all unto Himself, but no man knows the day

I believe He is the Judge of all men, small and great
The resurrected souls of men receive from Him their fate
Some to death and some to life, some to their reward
Some to sing eternal praise forever to our Lord

the french version of o Canada lol Smile

Ô Canada!
Terre de nos aïeux,
Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux!
Car ton bras sait porter l'épée,
Il sait porter la croix!
Ton histoire est une épopée
Des plus brillants exploits.
Et ta valeur, de foi trempée,
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits,
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.
Smile

God blessed me with a bakery and I get to listen to KLOVE all day.  For the last few weeks when Manifesto comes on the radio my co-worker knows the volume goes up and everyone can hear the song loud.  Thank you so much for Truth put to a strong beat and a powerful voice.  It stirs my spirit and heart.  Thank you!!

Hey Scott n Kelly did u know that the us anthem has 4 vs
Our 4 th vs is
Oh, thus be it ever when free men shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war's desolation
Blessed with victory and peace through this heaven rescued land
Praise the power that has made and preserved us a nation
Then conquer we must for our cause it is just
And this is our motto in God is our trust
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

I just wanted to say this group is my new favorite. The songs are rediculously powerful, and the sound of the first song played on K Love reminds me of U2, which I think is pretty cool. So anyways, thanks for sharing your awesome music!

Bless you all...
Just want let you know that, Manifesto really made me cry. It is a profound connection with God when you heard it, as if you are a empty glass in a sunny day and then you listen to this amazing music, something out of this dimention fill up that glass with living water. Love the way the Lords prayer is sing by the end.
I will be watching for more music from you guys. Blessed be the name of the Creator of the universe.
Thank you!!!

I was jogging on my treadmill when the interview was taking place. I was cracking up so much I was having difficulty concentrating on my stride; however, was having so much fun that I went an extra mile. Thanks for the motivation!! God used you even in the craziest ways of helping a gal keep focused on her new lifestyle.

Hi Scott and Kelli,
Just FYI the US does in fact have four verses in our national anthem.  It just that (like the Canadians, apparently) we only sing the first one because other wise it would take to long.

Here is the complete Star Spangles Banner:
Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Okay, a little late on this, but I did download the song from iTunes today.  Let me just say, this song is awesome.  I have a dear friend who is also into Christian music like me, and I recently shared part of the song with her.  She enjoyed it too.

God Bless
