Through the journey of life we often collect things–something from a special location, or occasion; it may be a photo from a special event or person in our lives. No matter the occasion, each is something worth saving.
The McKameys assuredly have had this same experience. Out of their more than fifty years of recording, many of their twenty-plus number one songs have come about this way.
Something Worth Saving is filled with songs that are just that.
The McKameys have a proven recipe for lyrically strong, Biblically backed songs delivered with passion and feeling that can only come from living what they are singing. In the title song Something Worth Saving, there are reminders that “though I feel I’ll never be worthy, my God is real and so is His mercy. He must have seen something worth saving when He saved me”.
Something Worth Saving is full of promises from God’s Word to uplift and comfort. “Come ye sinners, poor and needy, come ye wounded weak and worn. There’s a harbor for the broken, where the hopeless are reborn. He is able, He is able, Christ is able still to save.” [from Christ Is Able] Bring You Glory brings to mind our purpose in life saying, “Is that I bring You glory in how I live each day, that I make You pleased in the words that I say. And that I honestly love You in every way, and that I bring You glory today.” Back to Bethel describes the return to a source of faith. A place kept in memory and worth saving. “When I start to falter, I rebuild the altar.” The album finishes with the plea to God in Come To My Rescue “ Lord I come to you broken once again. Wash me and cleanse me deep within.“
As these songs minister and help us reflect on our relationship with Christ, we find that they are Something Worth Saving.
