artist's artist

Mark Heard (1951-1992) was the probably the most creative and prolific of all the artists to come out of the Jesus Movement. Born in Macon, Georgia - Mark became an artist's artist. He played many styles, and wrote so many incredible songs.  He produced 16 albums in his short lifetime.   As the Jesus Movement came and went - CCM seemed to offer so little in the field of unique.  Mark Heard is one of the exceptions. There is little on YouTube of his work - at least - not enough quality recordings to do his music justice.

HE WILL LISTEN TO YOU - Mark Heard

When the weight of this world crashes down on you

God will listen to you
When the sky turns black and your thoughts turn blue
He will listen to you
He will listen to you
Always listen to you
He understands how His children feel
He will listen to you
When the river of tears cannot be contained
He will listen to you
Like a drowning man in the pouring rain
God will listen to you
He will listen to you
Always listen to you
He understands how His children feel
He will listen to you
When the light explodes in a world gone wrong
He will listen to you
When your heart beats strong with a grateful song
God will listen to you
He will listen to you
Always listen to you
He understands how His children feel
He will listen to you
