Anju has spent several years involved in leading worship as part of Ichthus and currently HTB developing her skills as a singer/songwriter, culminating in this, her debut collection of songs. Each song is firmly rooted in Scripture, and the intention is clearly that these are songs to be used in worship - Anju helpfully provides chord charts and lyrics for each song on her website. Thematically the songs include praise, the Christian's dependence on God, waiting upon him to lead us and spiritual healing for the broken. Musically there are obvious comparisons with some Vineyard and Hillsong material, in particular in the way the electric guitars are used, as well as Matt Redman. Anju's vocal sound is confident and strong, sailing powerfully above the music in the upbeat moments, but it sounds to me as if she needs to work a little at retaining control when singing softly. The real highlight for me is the last track, "We Give You All The Glory", which begins quietly and reflectively but ascends to become a real anthem of praise. Other songs worth mentioning are "I Will Not Fear", a song of confidence in the Lord with slight '80s pop overtones.

This album is great. It speaks of Gods love and goodness and brings you closer to Him. Its great to put on while you're having a quiet time or also when praying (or indeed any time!). Myself and a friend actually prayed through the whole album!!

The last track is about worshipping God for who He is and giving Him all the glory and honour and praise and really alllows you to press in. Listening to the albumn has really blessed me, I highly recommend it!!
