The first-fruits of Laura Story’s newest album, Open Hands (buy), has already made significant waves with the early release of the title track that features Third Day front man Mac Powell. The rest of Story’s latest matches that single’s impactful message and vision with songs that remind us of God’s grace and glory in all facets of life, both up and down. “Awake My Soul (1,000 Tongues)” feels like a Matt Redman fave. “For The Love Of My King” beautifully blends the popular hymn “My Jesus, I Love Thee” into a newer melody. However the real spotlight belongs to “Death Was Arrested,” a modern hymn that deserves attention in churches around the globe.
