[I Can't Get Enough of] Sojourn

Definition of SOJOURN
intransitive verb
: to stay as a temporary resident : stop — so·journ·er (noun)

Seriously people. Sojourn.

A temporary stay, to be someone who stays temporarily, or also as someone who makes fantastic music. You can stream all (yes people, ALL!) of their albums here.

Sojourn is a worship band based out of a church in Louisville, Kentucky. Honestly, I would consider making a trip to Kentucky just to see these guys and give them a personal "thank you" for being so fantastic. They have almost ruined all other Christmas albums with their one titled Advent Songs. Sojourn is a folk-pop mix which sometimes dabbles in the realm of the Transiberian Orchestra. It really is like nothing else I've heard.

But don't take my word for it! Listen to them yourself.

My current top five are:

Approach My Soul, the Mercy Seat

Amen, Amen

Before the Throne

Joy to the World

Lead Us Back

May the lyrics and music of Sojourn be as wonderful to you as it has been to me. I honestly do not think that I can even begin to explain how much good these musicians have done for my soul and the ways that they have pointed me towards Jesus. May they also do the same for you.
