Brian Free and Assurance, "It's So God!", It's so Good!



Brian Free and Assurance’s latest project, “It's So God, shows the group expanding the sounds of what a Southern Gospel quartet can achieve. The first single released to radio, “ If It Takes Valley” captures this Brian Free and Assurance's unique sound. “Usually in an up tempo song there is not a deep seated message”, Brian comments, “It’s just a feel good song. Every once in a while you run across a fast song that says something and this is one of them.”

“’If It Takes A Valley” has a strong message. It reminds us that we don’t need to be happy with where we are spiritually and we always need to be growing. We have to understand that in order for us to be refined the dross has to be burned away. We have to go through the fire. There is a price to pay to grow spiritually and that’s what this song says, ‘If It Takes A Valley and a hard time to get my attention, to help me grow, then that’s what I will take’”

I told Brian that that is exactly why I don’t sing this song to often – I can use a break from the refiner’s fire! He laughed. Brian has a wonderful sense of humor and his joyful spirit shines through.





Lyrics to Brian Free and Assurance

IF IT TAKES A VALLEY

Joel Lindsey and Sue C. Smith

Verse 1
There’s been times when I’ve believed Your approval / Means a life that’s free from pain. / Yet how many saints I know about have served You / Without any earthly gain. / In their suffering they discovered your sufficiency / And maybe sacrifice is where your sweetest blessings wait for me.

Chorus
If it takes a valley to really know your grace / Or if it’s in the desert where I’ll meet you face to face / Then turn the path I’m traveling to some dark and lonely place / Cause if it’s in the valley, then a valley’s what I’ll take.

Verse2
Have I mentioned that I’m clinging to Your promise / That I’m safe within Your will / have I told You how it feels to face the enemy / and know You are greater still / Guess I had to walk through danger Lord so You could show / The way You’d cover me with mercy and You’d never let me go.

Chorus
If it takes a valley to really know your grace / Or if it’s in the desert where I’ll meet you face to face / Then turn the path I’m traveling to some dark and lonely place / Cause if it’s in the valley, then a valley’s what I’ll take.

I’m not saying circumstances never cause me fear / I’m just believing there is a purpose and even when it isn’t clear / If it takes a valley to really to really know your grace / Or if it’s in the desert I’ll meet you face to face

Chorus
If it takes a valley to really know your grace / Or if it’s in the desert where I’ll meet you face to face / Then turn the path I’m traveling to some dark and lonely place / Cause if it’s in the valley, then a valley’s what I’ll take.

If it takes a valley, if it takes a valley, if it takes a valley, then a valley’s what I’ll take.

Brian Free and Assurance, “It’s All About The Blood”

Another song from Brian Free and Assurance’s “It’s So God” album is “It’s All About The Blood”. “This is an awesome song”, Brian smiles. “We love lyrically strong songs that talk about the Blood of Jesus Christ and this is definitely one of them”

Brian continues, “This song wraps it up. It reminds us that everything we do, everyday, every part of what we do is all about the Blood of Jesus Christ. It all comes right back to the Blood.”

Lyrics to Brian Free and Assurance

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE BLOOD

Marty Funderburke and Tammy Dunaway

Verse 1
It’s not cathedrals, it’s not steeples/ Its not crosses made of gold/ It’s not just sentimental stories that have been passed down from old. /It’s not religion or tradition that can save the souls of man. / It took the sinless blood of one Holy Lamb.

Chorus
It’s all about the blood, it’s all about Calvary. / It’s all about mercy flowing down an old rugged tree. / It’s all about grace, it’s all about a sacrifice. / God’s love is all about the blood of Jesus Christ.

Verse 2
It’s the scarlet thread that ties the beginning to the end. / It’s a river of forgiveness to wash away our sin. / It’s a healing stream, a fountain / An eternal cleansing flood / and the heartbeat of the Gospel with forever be the blood.

Chorus
It’s all about the blood, it’s all about Calvary. / It’s all about mercy flowing down an old rugged tree. / It’s all about grace, it’s all about a sacrifice. / God’s love is all about the blood of Jesus Christ.

Verse 3
What can wash away my sin? / Nothing but the blood of Jesus. / What can make me whole again? / Nothing but the blood of Jesus. / It’s all about grace, it’s all about a sacrifice./ God’s love is all about the blood of Jesus Christ. / God’s love is all about the blood of Jesus Christ.

Brian Free, “Man of Sorrows”

One of the songs that really struck me when I listened to Brian Free and Assurance’s, “It’s So God” CD, was “Man of Sorrows”. Indeed it kind of got stuck in my mind and I went about singing that song all day.

Brian says of this song, “When I heard it, the message really, really, really got my attention. In the first place you don’t hear songs like this much, it’s rare. When I heard that I said

That’s the Truth’. A lot of times in society today we forget that when someone sins and asks God for forgiveness and they turn from sin – that’s the key, a lot of people forget that part of scripture – and that sin is no longer part of their life then its our responsibility as friends, acquaintances, to not bring that up, to not lay that in their face because that is a tool of Satan to keep somebody defeated and down.”

“ ‘Man of Sorrows’ is a neat song. It has a great tune and it has a great message. It has all of the ingredients. It’s not a song that will make people stand up and cheer. It’s not that kind of song. But it is one that you listen to and after its over you say, ‘yeah’. Great song.”

Lyrics to Brian Free and Assurance

MAN OF SORROWS

Joel Linsey and Tony Wood

Verse 1
Sometimes days and weeks go by and it never comes to mind / The agony, the cruelty, the way you were despised / But then other times, oh, Lord I can see the cross You bore / And all the ways you suffered become clear to me once more.

Chorus
Lord, I heard you were a man of sorrows / With a heart that broke from all the pain you knew / Lord, I heard you were a man of sorrows / And when I think about what my sin did to You / Oh, Jesus, I'm a man of sorrows too

Verse 2
Though the thorns cut deep that day and the people mocked Your name / Greater was the torment of when Your Father turned away

Chorus
Lord, I heard you were a man of sorrows / With a heart that broke from all the pain you knew / Lord, I heard you were a man of sorrows / And when I think about what my sin did to You / Oh, Jesus, I'm a man of sorrows too

Verse 3
So I cry for the tears that You cried / And I grieve for Your grief Lord / And I ache from my marrow for holiness / 'Cause I don't ever want to hurt You anymore /

Chorus
Lord, I heard you were a man of sorrows / With a heart that broke from all the pain you knew / Lord, I heard you were a man of sorrows / And when I think about what my sin did to You / Oh, Jesus, I'm a man of sorrows too

When I think about what my sin did to You / Oh, Jesus, I'm a man of sorrows to.

Brian Free and Assurance's, "It's So God!" is a wonderful album that ministers to the heart. Every song serves a purpose, to minister to the listener in one form or another. It is a great CD!
