The Light In Us, the highly anticipated seventh studio recording from JUNO® Award-nominated and multi Covenant Award-winning worship artist and singer/songwriter Jon Bauer, is set to bow June 10 at iTunes, Apple Music and Google Play. Produced by GRAMMY®-nominated, Dove Award-winner Rusty Varenkamp (Building 429, Meredith Andrews) and mixed by GRAMMY® and Dove Award-winner Ainslie Grosser (Rend Collective, Casting Crowns), the project features 10 selections, all co-penned by Bauer.
Chronicling a season of healing and restoration, highlights of The Light In Us--which features pop, modern worship and country influences--include the worshipful, upbeat opener, "Your Love Is Beautiful"; "Come Alive," a reflective declaration of God's faithfulness and sustainment; and the pop-driven plea to hear His voice on "Say Something."
"Life with Jesus is a journey," Bauer shares of the project's overarching theme. "The Lord never promised it would be easy, but worth it if we trust in Him. This album shares a healing journey I have been on the last couple of years as I have leaned on the faithfulness of God even when I have not felt Him near. In His time--not my own--He has brought complete healing and has used the trials of this life as a testament to His greatness. My prayer is that these songs would draw others who are walking through a valley to press in even closer to Jesus."
