The New Covenant – By My Wounds You are Healed

The New Covenant’s ethereal new song “By My Wounds You are Healed” is a unique piece of Christian rock music, a meaningful spiritual statement delivered with an uncompromising alt rock vibe that defies simple categorization. 

The singer’s vocal timbre is quite unique, immediately grabbing the listener’s attention from the earliest moments of the verse.  A full organ/string/mellotron type keyboard patch mingles with a lightning and storm sound effect.  Additional vocal layers enhance the sonic pallet.  A clean electric guitar riff heralds the beginning of a chorus section in which the vocal line becomes irresistibly captivating due in large part to the addition of a simple yet inimitable higher harmony line.  If given the chance, this is a singular soundscape that can really grow on you.

The lyrics don’t beat around the bush for a moment.  This song is an uncompromising statement of Christ’s love.  He suffered because we needed to be healed from our sins.

I had to suffer this to make you mine.
You know I think about you all the time.
You are the branches and I am the vine.
Drink the water and taste the wine.

By my wounds girl you are healed.
By my wounds yes you are healed.
By my wounds girl you are healed.
By my wounds now you are healed.

These words are softer than the morning dew.
A burning fire inside of you.
I gave my blood I gave my life for you.
His words are faithful and His words are true.

By my wounds boy you are healed.
By my wounds boy you are healed.
By my wounds boy you are healed.
By my wounds boy you are healed.

I had to suffer this to make you mine.
You know I think about you all the time.
You are the branches and I am the vine.
Drink the water and taste the wine.

By my wounds girl you are healed.
By my wounds yes you are healed.
By my wounds girl you are healed.
Now you are healed.

You are healed.
