Country-Pop Gospel: Reba McEntire - Back To God


Music Video Embedded Below - Lyrics Included At The Bottom
------------------------------------------

Hi!

Through the years Reba McEntire has only been on the edges of my radar.

I knew she was a country singer who had achieved some recognition for her work — and I knew she had a TV show — although I'd never watched more than a few minutes of it.

I'd also seen her on a few talk shows — but truly must confess I knew little else about her.

Recently someone on Twitter posted her new single "Back To God" and I gave it a listen.

I was really surprised to both hear her make such a bold declaration of faith — and find myself really liking the song.

Yes — she puts more than a little "twang" on the vocal — but the track is as much "pop" as it is country — and the video is filled from beginning to end with beautiful imagery.

You'll find the song on her new double-disc gospel album, Sing It Now: Songs of Faith & Hope — and according to Nashville Country Daily, on Feb 14, 2017, she has been rewarded for her efforts:

[The album has] ascended to the No. 1 spot on both Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and Top Christian Albums chart with more than 54,000 equivalent albums sold according to Nielsen Music.

[This] marks the first time Reba has scored a No. 1 on the Top Christian Albums chart, while becoming her 13th No. 1 on the Top Country Albums chart. Her lucky No. 13th chart-topping album extends her record for the most No. 1s for a female artist. Reba’s new album also debuted at No. 4 on the all-genre Billboard 200. 

“This album has been a huge gift to me,” said Reba. “It has helped heal my heart and has let me know I can move forward with faith and hope. I am so thankful to God for His guidance that lead to this moment. I pray that everyone who listens to these songs, receives exactly what the Holy Spirit wants them to receive. These CDs go out to my family, friends and fans remembering these songs from their growing up years and to those who are just beginning to sing along. We could all use more faith and hope. I sure do appreciate yours!”

Anywho, please give Reba's music video I've embedded below a spin — and I hope it'll speak to you as much as it did to me.



"Back To God" - Lyrics

Oh, have you looked around,
Have you heard the sound,
Of Mama's cryin'?
Or do you turn away,
When you see the face,
Of the innocent dyin'?
In these darkest days,
Are you not afraid,
That it's too late?

You gotta get down on your knees, Believe,
Fold your hands and beg and plead,
Gotta keep on praying,
You gotta cry, rain tears of pain,
Pound the floor and scream His name,
Cause we're still worth saving,
Can't go on like this and live like this,
We can't love like this,
We gotta give this world back to God,

Have you lost a love,
Do you feel like givin' up,
Has your heart been broken?
Are your kids okay,
Will they come home safe,
Do you lie there hoping?
You can make a wish, you knock on wood,
Oh, it won't do no good,

You gotta get down on your knees, Believe,
Fold your hands and beg and plead,
You gotta keep on praying,
You gotta cry, rain tears of pain,
Pound the floor and scream His name,
Cause we're still worth saving,
We can't go on like this and live like this,
We can't love like this,
We gotta give this world back to God,

You gotta get down on your knees, Believe,
Fold your hands and beg and plead,
Keep on praying,
You gotta cry, rain tears of pain,
Pound the floor and scream His name,
Cause we're still worth saving,
Can't go on like this and live like this,
We can't love like this,
You can hope the best,
Make a wish,
The only answer is,

We give this world back to God,
Oh, give it back,

Thanks so much for stopping by!

May God Richly Bless you! 

Jesus is LORD!

Seek Him!

10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
