Famed worship leader and singer-songwriter Chris Tomlin provides listeners with another batch of Christ-centered worship songs on Love Ran Red. This high-energy record, Tomlin’s tenth, features themes that are common in his music, including the cross, God’s love, and grace.
One standout, “Jesus Loves Me,” resounds; this isn’t the same song children sing in Sunday school. The title track, “At the Cross (Love Ran Red),” makes a powerful declaration: “Where your love ran red and my sin washed white, I owe all to you, I owe all to you, Jesus.” “I Will Boast” is a mellow offering; it focuses on the cross with soothing, beautiful piano. The deluxe edition of this album would make an excellent addition to anyone’s worship music collection. (Sixstepsrecords)
