Favorite Song of 2015

While his album didn’t make my list of favorites from 2015, Dustin Kensrue’s Of Crows and Crowns was probably my favorite song of the year.

In truth, it’s one of the most beautiful songs I’ve heard. I don’t know if I know of a more skilled lyricist out there. His lyrics as a part of Thrice are wonderful as are his solo lyrics (and worship music). If you are actively looking for thoughtful well crafted music, visit his site

You are a sight for aching eyes
A river for my thirst
When all the world is harsh and dry
Wasted by the curse
All words seem beggarly and poor
Then set to sing your grace
What could I’ve know of love before
My eyes had seen your face

My love, how beautiful you are
My love is ever where you are

I know you feel the wounds of time
The wondering feet of crows
But I am yours and you are mine
And none but me could know
How all of you enraptures me
Till I can’t look away
I pray that I will live to see
You wear a crown of gray

My love, how beautiful you are
My love is ever where you are

And when you kiss me I am lost
Or is it that I’m found
My feet send roots beneath the rocks
To fix me to the ground
Never to float away again
A captive to the tide
No more to wander in the wind
Without you by my side

My love, how beautiful you are
My love is ever where you are
