‘Forgiven‘ is the latest song to be released by Luke Wareham and Rachel Mason, two worship leaders and songwriters based in the South West of England. The song is written with their friend Damon Brown, has been produced by brothers Tim and Jon Stephenson. Luke and Rachel released their first EP “Whisper” in March last year that was voted no.1 in the Louder Than The Music 2020 awards with the song Whisper making it to number 11 in the UK Christian Music Charts. Their prayer is that ‘Forgiven‘ would help remind people of the hope and power of the cross whilst speaking into their everyday life situations.
‘Forgiven‘ is based on a simple, yet miraculous, Biblical concept. The concept of every sin we’ve ever committed, every transgression, every miserable failure, fault and frailty – being washed clean by Jesus’ act of forgiveness on the cross.
Co-writer Damon who came to Luke and Rachel with the concept for the song says: “As I sat in my church in Carmel, Indiana one weekend and heard our pastor call anybody to invite Jesus Christ into their life as Lord and Saviour, I considered the simplicity of what WE have to do (accept Christ and humbly ask forgiveness) against the backdrop of how massive and miraculous is the gift HE gives in return. He gives us eternal salvation and a forever home in the presence of God. And so the song ‘Forgiven’ was born out of this realization. If forgiven is all that we’re given, then we still get an eternity in Heaven. It’s a pretty immense reality, for any sinner… like me“.
‘Forgiven‘ is available to stream and download on all music platforms and their brand new lyric video will be on YouTube. The chords to the song are available to download via SongSelect.
