This is an absolutely wonderful album,from the BEST,gospel music makers EVER...The opening track("Choose Ye")is an URGENT message,to everyone who is still,"undecided"as far as putting away the pleasures of sin,in favor of living "sanctified"after ACCEPTING Jesus'(ultimate)sacrifice,so that they can live FOREVER,in paradise,when this(short)life,has run its' course!! The Bible says:"Choose ye TODAY,whom you will serve"(because Tomorrow,is promised to NO man!!)the song starts out with:"Well the time has FINALLY arrived,you can't "RUN"anymore,there is NOWHERE else you can HIDE!!" "You've been"searching"for so VERY long,so RIGHT NOW,"give-in"while the feelings STRONG!"You can feel it"pulling inside,HOW LONG will you IGNORE that He's "knocking"at your"door" "You've been searching for so VERY long,so RIGHT NOW "give in" while the feeling's STRONG!!" and again:"You've been "learning" oh so VERY long.." "Choose ye TODAY,whom you will serve,will it be GOD or man?!?" "Well now the choice is YOURS!!!" "Salvations plan,is for EVERYONE in EVERY land!!" I love this TRUTHFUL line:"We really don't have MUCH time!" "Perfect Love"is a very revealing song that discusses both the ASTONISHING/UNCONDITIONAL love that Jesus has for each of us,and the kind of love that He expects US to display as Christians:"To love my ENEMY,and to love them that PURPOSELY mis-use me!" "A love that casts-OUT all FEAR!!" "My favorite song"Redeemed"answers the age-old question:"Why did God decide to create Man in the first place,since He(knowing ALL things,BEFORE,they actually occur)KNEW,that Man was going to fall into Sin and become continually wicked?!?" "Redeemed"answers this question oh,so eloquently:"It was NOT,a haphazard event,nor a SECONDARY scheme...But it was the PLAN,of the Lord,to redeem!!"This following POWERFUL line lets one KNOW,everything Jesus "gave up" in order to come to Earth and suffer UNIMAGINABLE PAIN and HUMILIATION just to save US from an ETERNITY of TORTURE in the Lake of Fire:"Jesus "took OFF"His GLORY in Heaven,to redeem!!" This emphatically sang line lets' you know what Jesus endured,was no "walk in the park":"They WHIPPED Him,ALL-NIGHT LONG,to redeem!! continued with:"Calvary(where Jesus"gave"his life)didn't just HAPPEN to be,it was there BEFORE,the World began"..."He(Jesus)decided to DIE,for you and I,even BEFORE Adam Sinned!" THERE'S the answer,to that age-old question!! For anyone,who still doesn't "get it"I'll put it into "laymans"terms:God had the "remedy"(Jesus'death on the cross,at Calvary)for Mans'"fall"planned WELL,in advance...So for Him to go ahead,and create Man,was no problem whatsoever!! I love how the All-important events of the 5th chapter of "Revelation" was included on this song:"John saw a book,into which NO man could look,they were DENIED,though MANY came.." "Then John began to weep.." "The Elder said:"John DON'T weep,for the Lamb has ALREADY,been slain!!" "Then a PRAISE,went forth,of Blessings,and Honor,Glory and POWER,unto the Lamb,EVERMORE!!" "Another part of this(informative)song I like,is the answer to yet another age-old question:"If Jesus,was SO powerful,All-knowing and Wise,how were men able to capture Him by surprise,and crucify Him?!?" Answer:"He said no man TAKE my life,but I LAY IT DOWN!!" I LOVE,this song!!"Perfect Love"is a song that discusses the UNCONDITIONAL and UNLIMITED love that Jesus has FOR us,as well as the type of love that Jesus expects FROM us:"To love my ENEMY,and to love those who PURPOSELY mis-use me!!" "A love that cast-OUT all FEAR!"The heart-felt song"Straighten My Life"is an account of a Christian who is admitedly straying off of the"straight and narrow"path and is asking for Gods'help in setting him back squarely on the road to salvation!!The song starts with an honest confession on the wayward Christians' part:"Have to admit,that I THOUGHT I had it under TOTAL control."Feelings inside,seemed to OVERRIDE what I KNOW(to be right)!!" "Now believe me I've learned,and my GREATEST concern,is that it never happens AGAIN!!" "So I'm coming to You,honest and true,telling You:"Do what you HAVE to!" I love the touching:"I've lived that way ONCE,I can't live that way AGAIN!!" The troubled saint shows God that he knows that God is ABLE to set him aright with:You SAID You could make the crooked STRAIGHT,and the MIDDLE of a desert,You can spring a WELL!"The saint then specifies what he desires of God:"So what I'm asking of You,and hope for You to do,won't you just take my life,MAKE it right,turn this"darkness"into LIGHT!" "I'll Follow Where You Lead"is a song about the Christian who is unsure of his future as an"Heir of Salvation"(wisely)seeking Gods'direction(and purpose)for his life.."From "this place" I've STARTED,a lot of ground's been covered,and yet REMAIN so many heights unknown!!" "So now I face a fork in the"road" "Life with its' suprises,TRY to organize them,and make them work out BEST for me,but now I'm just as lost as I can be!!" "I need YOUR direction,to make the RIGHT selection!!" "LEAD me,and I'll follow WHERE EVER You lead!"This ENTIRE album is excellent!!Good listening for "born-again"Christians and sinners alike!!

I gave this CD 2 Stars because the Songs that are listed on the case and the CD DO NOT Matched!! I ordered it for the main song, "Let My People Go" is NOT on the CD at all. I was very disappointed. My husband and I do like the other songs too but THE Main Song is missing.
