Themes of redemption and belonging to God, stemming from both Biblical truth and the heart-cry of human need, are masterfully woven throughout this collective of modern-rock worship music. Forever Yours by Gateway Worship is the culmination of 10 years of musical skill and uplifting, fervent worship fueled by a unique combination of music by worship leaders, singers, and songwriters such as Kari Jobe, Thomas Miller, Walker Beach, Rebecca Pfortmiller, and Tim Sheppard. This compelling worship album was written for one of the fastest growing church congregations, Gateway Church, in Southlake, Texas. Forever Yours features modern vocal harmonies, bouncing guitar rhythms, pensive piano accompaniments, and powerful songs of praise.
“God and King” is a fresh blend of the classic hymn “All Creatures of Our God and King” and original worship music. Other songs to explore are the upbeat choruses of “Not Ashamed,” the contemplative strains of “Mystery,” and simple words of hope in the beautiful lines of “All That He Says I Am.”
More: Fervent worship, an excitement for the Savior, and an eclectic mix of music and lyrics make this worship album an invigorating and worthy addition to church worship repertoire.
Less: Complex melody lines and quick rhythms make Forever Yours interesting and effective, yet challenging for worship teams and congregations alike.
