‘Jesus’: A light that overwhelms the darkness


Chris Tomlin brings us a song of praise and worship.

Chris Tomlin’s “Jesus,” off his 2016 album Never Lose Sight, is a prime example of contemporary worship music. Tomlin approaches the song with the steady hand of a lifelong Christian artist who knows how to arrange a song meant for prayer.

The melody is simple, the chorus uses a repetitive motive as a chant, and the lyrics are a praising prayer to the Lord. It doesn’t have to be complex to serve the purpose of prayer, and Tomlin does an exceptional job of keeping our minds on the message with a broad, rocking accompaniment.
