ASHLEA BRENEMAN – Okay. I know, I know! I write a lot about John Mark, and you’ve heard John’s name a lot on WJTL recently (thank you Creation Survival Kit Contest), but I can’t help it! I honestly think John Mark is one of the best lyricists today. Inside the church – and out.  He has an ability to explain timeless truths about Jesus in refreshing new ways. I would feel like I’m failing as a lover of music if I didn’t inform you about him.

He is set to re-release The Medicine on July 6, and it will feature four new songs. You can see JMM perform at this year’s Creation East Festival and he will make his second appearance on the Gallery Stage at this year’s Purple Door Festival. Here’s John talking about the album and a video of him performing “Death In His Grave” a great song featured on The Medicine. Enjoy!

Lyrics to “Death In His Grave”

Though the Earth cried out for blood
Satisfied her hunger was
Billows calmed on raging seas
For the souls of men she craved

Sun and moon from balcony
Turned their head in disbelief
Their precious Love would taste the sting
Disfigured and disdained

On Friday a thief
On Sunday a King
Laid down in grief
But woke with the keys
Of Hell on that day
The first born of the slain
The Man Jesus Christ laid
Death in his grave

So 3 days in darkness slept
The Morning Sun of righteousness
But rose to shame the throws of death
And overturn his rule

Now daughters and the sons of men
Would pay not their dues again
The debt of blood they owed was rent
When the day rolled a new

On Friday a thief
On Sunday a King
Laid down in grief
But awoke holding keys
To Hell on that day
The first born of the slain
The Man Jesus Christ
Laid death in his grave

He has cheated Hell and seated us above the fall
In desperate places he paid our wages one time once and for all

The story behind the song “How He Loves”

May 11th, 2010 No comments

ASHLEA BRENEMAN – John Mark McMillan penned the song, “How He Loves” after he lost a dear friend in a car accident. The video below is John sharing the meaning behind the song and the type of love he is talking about. It also features his beautiful wife Sarah (who is an amazing musician and songwriter too) plus their adorable son, Judah.

John Mark is on tour this spring and will be playing at both Creation Festival & Purple Door.
