Saints & Martyrs

James Tealy - Saints & MartyrsMerry Christmas everyone. This month has been a blur running around with Josh Wilson and Wes Pickering bringing a little Christmas joy to Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. Home at last, I want to give a Christmas gift to all of you who have prayed so consistently for me…who have checked in on me here and sent encouraging notes along the way. You’ve driven hours to come see us and sing along with us. 2010 has been a tough but fruitful year full of singing, writing, teaching and driving…endless driving.

We released an EP of worship songs at the end of June called “Open Hands.” You have bought more copies of these few songs than anything I’ve released to date. We recorded one song that didn’t make it to the record and I want to share it with you now.

“You Alone Can Save” was written in January of this year in a hotel in Mumbai, India. Seth Condrey, Matt Papa and I were in a room together worshipping long after it was appropriate to be singing in a hotel room. Our neighbor finally knocked on the wall at 1AM and we quieted down. This is a song for the morning, lyrics meant to ride the back of the dawn. You can click HERE to download the song (along with a chord chart and a bonus remix of Open Hands) or click on the cover art for the EP at the beginning of this post.

Merry Happy Jingle Ho Ho.
