Hillsong OPEN HEAVEN/River Wild Review

I started listening to Hillsong’s music in probably 2000.  I think one of the earliest songs I heard was “Shout to the Lord” with Darlene Zschech.  They have put out quite a bit of music since then, and it is incredible!

We love Hillsong music in our house.  My children love it.  I love it.  My husband loves it.  We use it as part of our homeschool curriculum for music.  One of my favorite songs is “Wake” on the Hillsong Young and Free album.  Do not listen to that song while driving!

The thing I love about their music is that JESUS is lifted up.  He is the cornerstone, the center of it all. I like to listen to it in the car, or at night when it is quiet in the house, and all you can hear is the worship to The Lord.

Their latest CD is Open Heaven/River Wild and it is wonderful.  It was recorded live at the Hillsong Conference in Sydney, Australia this year.

Tracks found on this CD include:

*O Praise the Name
*Love on The Line
*One Thing
    *Open Heaven (River Wild)
    *What A Savior
    *Heart Like Heaven
    *Jesus I Need You
    *Here With You
    *In God We Trust
    *Never Forsaken

Some of my favorite lyrics on this album are in the first song, “Praise the Name”:

“He shall return in robes of white
The blazing sun shall pierce the night
And I will rise among the saints
My gaze transfixed on Jesus’ face”

  1. While studying abroad in London I stumbled across a Hillsong worship service that took place every Sunday. I had been looking for a place to go to church so it was such a blessing to find them. I now own a few of their CDs and listen to Oceans on the daily. Thanks for the amazing opportunity to learn some of their newer stuff!
    Peace, Sarah

    1. How cool is that, to attend their worship services!

  2. I love hillsongs too. I love to drive through the mountains and sing a long to it....great worship time.

  3. Me and my family love Hillsong too,

  4. Hillsong was the first artist I listened to when I first accepted Christ into my life - it's so glad to see they're still making music!
