Music Music Music - Jeremy Camp - Reckless


 Jeremy Camp is one of my favorite Christian artists.  He has a great voice and song writing talent and his sincerity shows through each song whether you are listening to a CD (and I've got plenty) or if you see him at a live show.  He is one of my husband's faves too so way back in the day when my husband and I were still newlyweds, when Jeremy came to town with TobyMac and Matthew West, I bought surprise tickets for my love.

At the show we learned both Matthew's story (wont go into it here since this is about Jeremy) and also about Jeremy and his incredible story.  For a young man he has truly had a clear vision of his ministry and also has had some pretty intense life experience.  We can all relate to parts of Jeremy's life from having our own rebellious youth or to losing a loved one.  Jeremy shares his experience in his book "I Still Believe" which is published by Tyndale House.  Next week on February 12th Jeremy will be releasing his latest album "Reckless."  Jeremy truly is an inspirational Christian artist not just because of his music but because of his sincere love of Jesus and how that love is so easily translated into who he is.

Before we get into Reckless though I want to share with you my favorite song.  I love a lot of Jeremy's work but his song "This Man" in particular pierces my heart with its beauty and truth.



Here are the lyrics.  Honestly, I can't even read them without tearing up.

"This Man"

In only a moment truth

Was seen revealed this mystery
The crown that showed no dignity he wore
And the king was placed for all the world
To show disgrace but only beauty flowed from this place

Would you take the place of this man

Would you take the nails from his hands
Would you take the place of this man
Would you take the nails from his hands

He held the weight of impurity

The father would not see
The reasons had finally come to be to
Show the depth of his grace flowed with
Every sin erased he knew that this was
Why he came

Would you take the place of this man

Would you take the nails from his hands
Would you take the place of this man
Would you take the nails from his hands

And we just don't know the blood and

Water flowed and in it all
He showes just how much he cares
And the veil was torn so we could have
This open door and all these things have
Finally been complete

Would you take the place of this man

Would you take the nails from his hands
Would you take the place of this man
Would you take the nails from his hands
From his hands
From his hands
From his hands
From his hands
From his hands 


Anyway, Jeremy has some exciting things coming up.  Like I mentioned, he has his book, new album and is on tour as part of the Rock & Worship Roadshow.  Being a part of this tour must be a huge blessing.  This is the fifth year of the tour, and this tour is something else.  For $10 at the door, you get to see several top notch music acts.  The talent is amazing and fills just about every genre and every taste.  Hey, since I am linking stuff all over the place, I might as well throw that in too.  :)


I'm sorry, I was so excited with "Reckless" and the Roadshow that I forgot to post what I really wanted to share.  The music video for Jeremy's newest song straight from the album titled "Reckless."  Enjoy!  This is the lyric video.  You can catch the official music video at God Tube

    1. Love Jeremy Camp and yes absolutely love the talent that is actually working in the Christian music industry. I love hearing songs that touch your heart and also allow God to mend those places that have specific needs that these beautiful songs touch. It is really incredible.

      I used to listen to Air1 when I lived in California. Now I work for a Christian radio station in AZ. Even Christian radio has changed dramatically. :) LOVE IT! :) God bless you and thank you so much for visiting!

    1. Hi Emily,

      I got more and more into Christian artists when I started working at a Christian station. I suppose there is something to be said about working around it for hours and hours a day. :) Thank you so much for stopping by and following too.

      Blessings

  5. Hi Kelly!
    How did the Molten Lava Cakes turn out? I'm your newest follower via GFC. I want to stop by and introduce myself and share a couple of things with you. First, did you know that when you make a comment they are appearing as a no-reply? I wrote a post Are You a No-reply Blogger? that shows you how to fix it.
    Next I wanted to invite you to share your creativity and meet some new people at Fluster's Creative Muster Party on Wednesday's.

    Hugs, Smiles and Blessings,
    Robin
