When Essential Records released this album from the Kentucky-based aggregation in October last year, they were no doubt looking for 'Glory To Glory' to provide the world Church with a major modern worship hit. That didn't happen though it's still an excellent album of songs birthed out of encounters in God's presence. Iron Bell Ministries are an equipping and prayer outfit committed to restoring lives and unlocking destinies and their worship dimension, which began in 2009 as a small worship gathering in a home, now regularly bring hundreds to the Iron Bell barn. I would describe "Hallelujah Lives In Me" as a rock hymn, and a good one at that, while the title track has the bold declaration "I believe all you start, you complete." There is a real country music introduction to "You Come Running" which highlights God's grace and mercy even in a time when we are perhaps hiding from Him. The set closes strongly with "Your Joy Alone" reminding us that God is with us "through every loss, in the silence." I really enjoyed listening to this inspiring set. For me there wasn't a bad song on it.
