Reuben Morgan
World Through Your Eyes



Album length: 11 tracks: 42 minutes, 39 seconds
Street Date: September 13, 2005


Now you can finally find out who wrote those energetic worship songs that you sing all the time at church! "My Redeemer Lives" and "I Give You My Heart," which you have probably heard being performed by Hillsong United, were written by none other than the Australia dwelling Reuben Morgan, an important tool in the establishment and songwriting of the worship band Hillsong United.

Signed with Michael W. Smith's Rocketown Records, Morgan has remarkable talent in songwriting. His lyrics and sense of worship press deep upon the heart. After being a core component to the establishment of Hillsong United, Hillsong church's worship leader, and having 17 songs in the Top 500 Worship songs chart, Morgan has decided to release his first album entitled World Through Your Eyes. He wants to inspire people around the world to do one thing that God wants everyone to do, worship Him. Morgan has more than just a heart for music and he worships God with more than just his passionate words and melodies; he worships Him with his life.

World Through Your Eyes, an eleven track album, is a combination of different types of worship songs that will sink deep down and captivate your heart. The album kicks off with the well-known "My Redeemer Lives," a lively and upbeat worship song. Another notable song includes "I Give You My Heart," an popular song in churches around the nation. "World Through Your Eyes" features British guitar riffs with an American sound. Most of the worship songs on the album are more upbeat and dynamic. "Gloria," for example, is an extremely lively song with a bit of rock that features the Latin chorus accustomed to the song. The album ends on a softer note with "Waiting Here," a slower song with a particularly supple sound and enchanting lyrics, which closes things out beautifully.

Many of Reuben Morgan's songs have been covered by the likes of Michael W. Smith and Rita Springer. He is looked up to by many Christian artists of this generation. If you are a fan of any type of worship music, I would definitely suggest checking Reuben Morgan's World Through Your Eyes. It's worth the buy.
