Alexon Enfiedjian is one my Twitter buddies—I only knew him as the brain behind these worship team training podcasts until this review request came along. Now I know him as a gifted worship songwriter too!
It's always a joy to discover new worship artists and discovering Alexon was no exception.
"Ancient of Days" is Alexon's newest record. There are 7 songs here, which in his words span across "God's sovereignty in the midst of chaos, confusion and hurt. My hope is that these songs will encourage and strengthen those in a difficult season or longstanding trial."
About the songs
- 'Only Your Name' is a melodic mid tempo song proclaiming the uniqueness and power of the Name of Jesus
- 'Wait For You Here' is a slow tempo reflection on our trials, failures and low points of our lives and how much we need God in those moments
- 'Guide Us On' is a prayer seeking wisdom to know God's ways in the midst of the many choices surrounding us
- 'We Know Your Love' is a moving encouragement to trust the Lord and find hope in His love during tragedy and hurt
- 'Psalm 23' is... well... you can take an easy guess! But, trust me, this is a lovely take on this famous Psalm quietly confessing that God is always with us
- 'Come Restore Me' is a song of the prodigal returning back to God seeking forgiveness and restoration
- 'Ancient of Days' closes the album with a powerful declaration that no matter what happens in the world around us, the Lord is sovereign over it all—this is my favorite song in this project!
Lyrically, all of these songs are honest, theologically truthful and simple—worship leaders will find it easy to learn these songs if they want to introduce them to their congregations.
And did I mention, Alexon is generously giving away the entire album for free? However, I encourage you to support his ministry by making a donation when downloading it—it will help him recover some of his costs incurred to produce this album.
