There is something about Jill Phillips’ latest album, Lead Me Home (buy), that just feels right—an obvious next musical step for a talented songwriter who has gifted companion songs for the faith journey for well over a decade. Her first hymns project, Lead Me Home plays like a familial invitation, to join a table fellowship around which to share your joys and sorrows. The sparse, intimate arrangements add to the resonant beauty of “Come Ye Sinners,” “Peace in the Valley” and, the album’s highlight, “Precious Lord, Take My Hand.” Lead Me Home acknowledges the pain and suffering of this world, while reminding the listener that God is also real and ever present in our trials.
