The saving grace of the Galaxies!

Adam Young (better known by his musician moniker, “Owl City”) has just released a brand new track, “Galaxies” that I had a chance to listen to today.

If you’ve paid attention, I’ve posted about Adam’s faith in Jesus Christ in the past.

This new track, “Galaxies” is yet another very public testimony to Adam’s faith and I’m excited about the potential it has to bring conversations about faith, grace, and strange techno-beats into the mainstream with Adam’s growing popularity.

The track is available right now on AmazonMP3 for only $.99 (it’s $1.29 on iTunes)

The lyrics to “Galaxies” if you’re interested:

Call back the cap-com,
Tick off the time-bomb,
Let felicity fly!
Armour the airlock,
Blanket the bedrock,
And kiss the planet goodbye!

Dear God, I was terribly lost,
When the galaxies crossed,
And the Sun went dark.
Dear God, You’re the only North Star,
I would follow this far.

Fight back the flight deck,
Bring on the breakneck,
Cue the solar eclipse!
Summit the sunset,
Dubtail the dragnet,
And blow your backbone to bits!
Dear God, I was terribly lost,
When the galaxies crossed,
And the Sun went dark.
Dear God, You’re the only North Star,
I would follow this far.

Oh telescope, keep an eye on my only hope,
Lest I blink and be swept off the narrow road.
Hercules, you’ve got nothing to say to me,
‘Cause you’re not the blinding light that I need.

For He is the saving grace of the Galaxies!
He is the saving grace of the Galaxies

Dear God, I was terribly lost,
When the galaxies crossed,
And the Sun went dark.
Dear God, You’re the only North Star,
I would follow this far.
