Covenant Church is a 10,000 member, multi-cultural and multi-campus congregation led by Pastors Mike and Kathy Hayes, that features a vibrant and passionate worship ministry. Inspired by Jesus’ words in John 16:33 (“…In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”), Take Heart became available on February 26 as both a 14-track physical album and a 16-track digital album, as well as a physical songbook and a CD-ROM digital songbook.
I went over to Covenant Church’s Website and saw they had written this about their new album: “In the Old Testament, Moses was instructed to write a song and teach it to his children and his children’s children so that they would remember what God said. So as we search the Scripture for inspiration, we lean in to hear what God is saying, then we translate it to music to make it easy to remember. If the world ever needed to hear the Voice of God, it certainly does in this season. God is a speaking God. He is always speaking. It’s up to us to listen. Our belief is that the worship experience is not a one-sided conversation but an exchange between the Groom and His Bride. Our prayer is that you’ll join in the dance, sing along, and please don’t forget to listen.”
Could it be any more awesome than that? Makes me love this album even more! The list of 16 songs on the digital album is really amazing too, check it out:
- Take Heart
- All Creation
- Your Promise Stands
- Isn’t the Name
- How Awesome
- How Great
- God is In Control
- The Battle is Yours

- There is a Name
- Jesus You Alone Are Worthy
- How Great (Reprise)
- So Good

I had the privilege of listening to this album prior to its release and I can tell you already that it’s a great worship CD to own. As the drummer on the praise team at my church, I always love catching new Contemporary Christian Music and especially LOVE the worship songs!
This is an album you don’t want to miss, so be sure to head over to iTunes HERE and pick it up for yourself! While you are at it, be sure to get the digital or physical songbook too!
One of my favorites from the album was the cover song, Take Heart, and now that I’ve added it to my running playlist, I want to share it with you so I’ve included the video of this song here:
I received a digital copy of this album without cost in exchange for my honest review and unbiased opinion.
