Husky tones (sounding a little like Peter Gabriel) and an earthy, ethnic mantra of worship with sparse arrangements and echoing instrumentation herald a South African singer showing an embryo of promise delivered more assuredly in later efforts. Classics such as "Father Of Creation/Let Your Glory Fall" and "0 Come Let Us Adore Him" are included in a stirring concoction of praise and worship to appeal to the churched faithful. There is a refreshingly child like perspective in these basic songs of worship to God and the story telling technique of "Little Boy From The Carpenter's Shop" reminiscent of Don Francisco.

Wonderful, soft inspiring music. Truly a child of God singing these songs of love. Especially - Light of Jesus and Mary Magdalene. I listen to this album daily. He speaks to my soul to spur Christians on to carry out the Light to the world. Keep praying and praising Julius. You are Blessed and Beloved of God.
