for KING & COUNTRY songs, lyrics, bio, news

The Australian born band for KING & COUNTRY is starting to make their mark in the Christian music industry. Coming from a musical family, brothers Joel and Luke have been singing and preforming most of their lives.

The brothers moved to America in the early 90’s when their father took a job in Nashville, Tennessee. After traveling the world, and performing in many live shows, the brothers decided to start making music together. According to the band, music is something that is of great importance to them, “Music has the peculiar ability to connect with the soul, and we want to use it to encourage… Life is a journey; full of highs and lows; triumphs and sorrows; these are the subjects we write about: Real human experiences.”

With heartfelt lyrics and a hip alternative/pop/rock sound, the duo is obviously just getting started. Their single “Busted Heart (Hold On To Me)” is a song about being absolutely broken, yet realizing that the Lord will always be there to hold on to you. Lyrics include, “Broke Your heart a thousand times, But You’ve never left my side, You have always been here for me. You never let me go, Don’t ever let me go” (Read full lyrics).

The band followed up “Busted Heart (Hold On To Me)” with “The Proof Of Your Love.” Anchored in 1 Corinthians 13:1, the song emphasizes that without love underlying our actions, everything we do is useless.

For King and Country will be joining fellow artists, Dara Mclean, and Jason Castro on tour this fall.

for KING & COUNTRY – The Proof Of Your Love

If I sing but don’t have love I waste my breathe with every song I bring, an empty voice A hollow noise

If I speak with a silver tongue Convince a crowd but don’t have love I leave a bitter taste With every word I say

(Chorus) So let my life be the proof The proof of Your love Let my love look like You And what You’re made of How you lived, how You died Love is sacrifice So let my life be the proof The proof of Your love

If I give to a needy soul But don’t have love then who is poor It seems all the poverty Is found in me

Chorus

Ooh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh When it’s all said and done Ooh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh When we sing our final song

Only love remains Only love remains

If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing. If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love. (1 Corinthians 13:1-7, The Message)

Chorus

(Music & Lyrics: Joel Smallbone / Luke Smallbone / Mia Fieldes / Jonathan Lee /Fred Williams / Ben Glover)

1 Corinthians 13:1-3 NKJV

1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.

You can’t hide love!
