New from TGC: Free Album of Resurrection Songs for Seasons of Pain

Caroline Cobb | June 14, 2016

In conjunction with our 2016 Women’s Conference (TGCW16) this week, The Gospel Coalition is thrilled to release When Trials Come: Resurrection Songs for a World of Suffering, an album featuring songs from Sandra McCracken, Shane & Shane, Jenny & Tyler, Page CXVI, Jackie Hill-Perry, Keith & Kristyn Getty, Beautiful Eulogy, and more.

Beginning today, you can download it free at

Curated specifically with TGCW16 and 1 Peter in mind, the songs of When Trials Come will remind you afresh of your glorious hope in Christ even amid suffering. Songs like Jenny & Tyler’s “See the Conqueror” and The Village Church’s “Raging Strong” focus on Jesus’s suffering on the cross and the power of his resurrection, where he triumphed over death forever (1 Pet. 2:21–24; 3:18–22). “Acquired in Heaven” by Beautiful Eulogy and “Far Kingdom” by The Gray Havens give us a greater vision of heaven, reminding us that though we face hardships as pilgrims here, we have an imperishable and unfading inheritance awaiting us in glory (1 Pet. 1:3–9, 13–16). Songs like “Though You Slay Me,” written by Shane Barnard after the sudden passing of his dad, will prompt you to trust our sovereign and good God, even amid the darkest storm (1 Pet. 4:12–19).
