“Just this week I was shown phone footage of a precious family in a Ukrainian city, caught up in the horrors of war,” Matt Redman explains. "Wrapped in winter coats and huddled together in a cold basement, still they sang out their worship - using the song '10,000 Reasons' to give voice to their hearts of faith. It was a humbling video to watch. It’s been a decade now since this simple song was released, but I don’t think I’ll ever get used to these kinds of stories. I’ve met some truly astonishing worshippers along the way - people on cancer wards or in the firing line somehow finding their way to the place of praise - and using '10,000 Reasons' as their soundtrack. I love the new 10th-anniversary version that Capitol Christian Music Group has commissioned - and it’s a joy to join friends Pat Barrett, Naomi Raine, Crowder, and the Torwalts on it.”
These two tunes and the different contexts in which they emerged click together in beautiful harmony and carry the most consistent messages in all of Mission House’s songs: “Jesus only!” Jess concludes, “it’s like we only have one prayer, but we just keep finding new ways to say it.” "If I Was A Bird/Nothing Left To Do" is a beautiful musical prayer adorned with warm acoustic tones and a genuineness that testifies to Mission House’s skill to write songs that resonate deeply with people’s experience of life and faith.
