Rather than simply glossing over struggles, Sanctus Real has never been afraid to shine a light on challenges and hardships. On the band’s sixth studio album, Run, Sanctus Real have written songs that promise to become encouraging anthems of hope and healing that listeners can cling to in their own trying times. Through both their struggles and victories, the guys in Sanctus Real have come to realize there’s only one place to run, and that’s into God's arms, and to his word and promises.

The band continues to build on their best-selling and 2010 Grammy nominated album, Pieces of a Real Heart, that carried the breakthrough song of their career. “‘Lead Me’ was a cry from the heart that resounded with families everywhere. We've devoted the better part of our lives writing songs that we pray will matter. Hearing countless stories of how God can use a song has been both humbling and inspiring,” says frontman Matt Hammitt.

It’s songs like “Lead Me” and the first single from Run, “Promises”, that have a way of finding people exactly where they are, songs that can’t simply be fabricated out of thin air but rely upon the life story of a band that wears their heart on their sleeve.

This is a great CD. Promises is a familiar song that K-LOVE has been playing for several months, but it is by no means the only song that should be highlighted on this latest release from this talented group. The lyrics of "Pray" are perfect for those overwhelming times when you don't even know what to say but you turn to God. I love the chorus:
So I pray
God I need You
More than words can say
Right here in this moment
You know my heart
You know my need
You know every part of me
So even if it's just to speak Your name
I'm gonna pray
Two other favorites of mine are "Commitment" (I want to finish the life we started; I want to be two old beautiful souls who stayed with it) and "Picture of Grace" -- in fact, there are a whole lot of incredible songs on this CD! Highly recommended!
