"Mercy and Grace"
Even if you're not a fan of rap, I suggest getting to the Lampmode site and buying The Attributes of God. Shai uses this album to guide us through God's attributes one song at a time. All of the lyrics on this album were reviewed by Mark Dever, the Senior Pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC, which is where Shai and his family worship, and are members. This fact alone shows how concerned Shai is regarding the theology of his lyrics, ensuring that they are saturated with scripture.
"Lord of Patience"
"Lord of Patience" communicates the patience that the Lord has for His children, even in our sin, doubt, foolishness, and through our "stumbles and falls, and our idolatry, through all of our grumbling and our hypocrisy". It's a great reminder of the fact that the Lord continues to work in us, continues to mold us, conforming us more and more to His image, and that this patient process will not be completed until the day that we are with Christ.
In an interview with Credo Magazine, Shai offers the following quote:
"For instance, I have a song called “Penelope Judd”, which is an allegorical children’s song that never explicitly mentions Jesus or reformed theology. Yet, classical reformed emphases like imputed righteousness, the sufficiency of Scripture, radical corruption, etc. are found throughout if you dig beneath the surface a little."
