Last night I took my daughter Kess out for a dad-daughter date night. We went out to a movie, dinner, ice cream, and shopping at a thrift store. We had a great time! And some much needed reconnection. ♥
While at the thrift store, I saw they had some vintage vinyl albums from the 1970s and ’80s. As I was thumbing through them, I found this gem:
This is the 1972 album of Lamb, the music group that pioneered the Messianic music genre. This was their first recording! 😎 Indeed, one of the very first Messianic albums ever recorded. (Possibly Liberated Wailing Wall had the first recorded Messianic album? Or did this come first? Maybe someone knows.)
What a treasure to find this!
Here are the tracks for this golden oldie. Give it a listen!
- The Judge
- Hatishkach התשכח
- Baruch Hashem ברוך השם
- The Sacrifice Lamb
- Time is Running Out
- Dracheicha דרכיך
- The Least I Could Do
- The Night is Far Spent
Some of the tracks have kind of a funky ’70s vibe to them: The Judge, The Least I Could Do, The Night is Far Spent.
The night is far spentThe day is close at handWhen Jesus comesAs the son of man …
Let us walk honestly in His sightShedding the old waysThe ones we did in the nightLet’s put on new clothesThe armor of His lightAnd let’s do His wordBefore the end of nightSo why do we slumberWhen it is time to rise?Awake all you sleepersHis coming draweth neigh
