Husband and wife duo, Brian & Jenn Johnson, co-founders of Bethel Music, have been a driving force behind some of the most popular modern worship songs including “One Thing Remains” & “Love Came Down” – both of which were written by Brian. With the release of their own solo recording, After All These Years, the pair continues to share their hearts for worship.
Opening song, “Mention Of Your Name”, declares the power of the Name of Jesus recognizing its life-giving capability recognizing that by Him we are redeemed & set free from the chains of sin.
“Mercy & Majesty” tells of the transformation that takes place within someone when they accept Jesus as their Savior and choose to surrender their lives to Him. Because of His sacrifice on the cross, we are forgiven and receive the gift of eternal life.
The title track, “After All These Years”, praises God for His unchanging faithfulness that never ceases. He will always keep His promises, continuously love His children and never give up on us no matter how far we stray from Him.
“You’re Gonna Be OK”, my personal favorite on this album, encourages anyone struggling with a difficult situation to keep going and looking for the light in the darkness, taking it one step at a time. The lyrics remind us that with the Lord on our side, we are much stronger than we can imagine.
“For The One” closes the collection with a reflective prayer that our lives may be an example of God’s love as we interact with people, regardless of who they are, where they’re from or their social status.
As a whole, After All These Years, is the kind of worship album that keeps the current trend of melodic vocals and soaring instrumental backgrounds going while directing the hearts and thoughts of listeners towards God and His mercy, love & grace.
