Faith Hope Love Repeat by Brandon Heath

It has been since November of last year that a post was categorized as Music. And this one I am very excited about. When we started this blog, I thought it would be fun to showcase some of my favorite artists. Music that I have been listening to lately. Stuff that had been speaking to my heart and getting caught in my brain on repeat.

I created several drafts at that time just over a year ago and Brandon Heath has been sitting there ever since. I know I wanted to write about one of his songs. He did not sit there as an empty draft because I couldn’t find a song worthy of commenting on, but instead it was too difficult to pick just one song of his.

I have several of his albums on my playlist, including a fantastic Christmas album – which by the way I do listen to from time to time regardless of the season – it don’t matter to me.

Anyways, recently we were at LifeWay Christian Bookstore shopping for a Bible for Nolan. Having been gone most of last year I did not keep up on any new releases from artists. Heath’s latest album, Faith Hope Love Repeat, features this song and when I first heard it I imediately thought of my family and my kids in particular. And so I don’t think I have much other comment other than I really enjoy the song and that it is just 4 chords over and over again – which I love when playing a song. (Keep it simple!) Hope you enjoy.

The song can be heard here and the lyrics are below. Tell me what you think in the comments!

Faith Hope Love Repeat by Brandon Heath on VEVO.

 

I wanna build four walls, keep you safe inside
And catch you when you fall, don’t wanna see you cry
And when you walk down the street, make you hold my hand
I wanna lift you off your feet, be your Superman, Superman

I wanna take you for a ride, when you cannot sleep
Brush your hair to the side, kiss you on your cheek
I wanna stay up all night, making sure you breathe
Oh my God, what a gift, He has given me

Yeah I brought you into this world
And I’m sorry it’s a little bit crazy
But I tell you there’s so much good
Though the future looks a little bit hazy
But see God me and Him have a promise
And He’ll give us everything that we need
So have faith, hope and love
Faith, hope and love, repeat
Faith, hope and love, faith, hope and love
Faith, hope and love, faith, hope and love

I wanna show you the world, climb the mountaintops
Watch you dance in the rain, I hope it never stops
Whatever tomorrow brings, I hope it brings you joy
And when it’s all too much, I’ll hold you in my arms

Yeah I brought you into this world
And I’m sorry it’s a little bit crazy
But I tell you there’s so much good
Though the future looks a little bit hazy
But see God me and Him have a promise
And He’ll give us everything that we need
So have faith, hope and love
Faith, hope and love…

But there will be days when you lose your faith
There will be nights when you give up hope
Disappointment and pain and you’ll flirt with the shame
So you’ll call me from the end of your rope
And I’ll give you whatever I have
Though there’s only one thing you’ll need
And that’s love, I’ll give you my love
My love, I’ll give you my love

Yeah I brought you into this world
And I’m sorry it’s a little bit crazy
But I tell you there’s so much good
Though the future looks a little bit hazy
But see God me and Him have a promise
And He’ll give us everything that we need
So have faith, hope and loveFaith, hope and love, repeat
Faith, hope and love, faith, hope and love, repeat
Faith, hope and love, faith, hope and love, repeat
