Upper Room’s Land of the Living is an album offering hope. The album’s title track, “Land of the Living,” is a spontaneous worship song based on Psalm 27:13: “I remain confident of this I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.” This beautiful worship song has the musical excellence of any finely crafted praise and worship song, but with the quiet assurance of a believer who is looking forward to seeing the goodness of the Lord.
