This is a wonderful collection of old time Christian songs of faith from Amy Grant. Magnificently produced by husband Vince Gill, it is at once artistically beautiful yet simply presented so that the words of faith are not overpowered by the productions. Grant made this album to commemorate her roots in Christian music and has lovingly rendered all those songs she sang as a child in church with her grandmother in a manner that would make her proud. It is gentle and souful and the selections are perfect.
1) "This is My Father's World"-This song has a ferris wheel kind of rhythm that ponders on the happiness of living in God's world in all it's beauty.
2) "My Jesus, I Love Thee"-There is a Scottish Highland kind of feeling to this selection as Amy sings of love for Jesus.
3) "Softly and Tenderly"-Amy perfectly captures this haunting call for the weary to "come home" to God.
4) "I Need Thee Every Hour/Nothing But the Blood"-The heartfelt "I Need Thee Every Hour" blends effortlessly into the rollicking tent revival duet of Amy and Vince on "Nothing but the Blood" that will have you feeling as though you should be up on your feet and clapping your hands together.
5) "What You Already Own"-I am not sure if it was intentional or coincidence, but I could not help thinking of how Amy was abandoned by some in the Christian community for not being perfect. This gentle lament of sometimes being unfaithful and doing wrong and looking to God for strength shows his spirit remains with those with faith, which is played out by our lives.

This lovely CD has heart, soul, and superb musicianship, and much credit must be given to Vince Gill, who with Brown Bannister did most of the arrangements, wrote two of the songs, sings on one, and plays guitar or mandolin on all but one track. Some of the songs are given a gentle rendition, and others a rousing interpretation, like tracks # 2 and # 14, with their up-tempo Celtic sound, but all are inspired and beautiful.
Favorites include the delicate and serene "Softly and Tenderly", the terrific duet with Vince, "Nothing but the Blood", with its gospel music rhythm, and the exquisite purity of the "What a Friend We Have in Jesus"/"Old Rugged Cross"/"How Great Thou Art" medley, with just the trio of Michael Omartian on piano, John Catchings on cello, and Vince on electric guitar backing the vocal.
"What You Already Own" was written by Amy, and it has honest words full of true Christian spirit; she also co-wrote two other songs on this album, evidence of her songwriting talent. The foldout insert contains all the lyrics, and some liner notes by Amy where she describes the meaning these songs have for her, going back to early childhood and her "earliest sonic memory". The sound is excellent, and total time 53'17.
Amy makes the most of her voice with musical intelligence, a heartfelt delivery of the lyrics, and plain and simple good taste in her choice of material; paired with the artistry of her husband Vince Gill, this CD is a winner.

After several years without a project, Amy returns with this CD, all new recordings of favorite hymns with a few new songs thrown in as well. Included are new arrangements of some of my favorites like "This is My Father's World" and the medley of "What a Friend We Have in Jesus/Old Rugged Cross/How Great Thou Art." Of the original songs, I really like "What You Already Own" and "Imagine" (my first recording of this song). Amy's vocals are sharp and most of the arrangements are fun.
There are a couple flaws with the album, however. It has a definite country feel to it. While this works for some of the songs, it gets monotonous toward the end. Some variety would have really helped. Also, as I noted with her last Christmas album, she seems to be missing the spark she once had. It almost feels like she's just going through the motions at times. Finally, just a minor pet peeve. Some of these arrangements only feature the chorus of a great hymn. It would have been nice to have at least one verse included.
Overall, this is worth adding to any Amy Grant collection. It may not reach the heights of some of her best, but it will provide hours of enjoyment.

I find the medley's different but it taught me something it connected the past with today I really enjoy the mix.

Yes, much more than five stars awarded here. I heard a snippet of the real oldie 'Softly and Tenderly' from this album on Premier Radio and was captivated. The interpretation is sensitively sung; I cried. The other hymns of faith from decades past are outstanding, and of course, recall memories. Uplifting vocals and instrumental backing. A real treat.
