Christian Rock

Christian rock is a form of rock music played by individuals and bands whose members are Christians and who often focus the lyrics on matters concerned with the Christian faith. The extent to which their lyrics are explicitly Christian varies between bands. Many bands who perform Christian rock have ties to the contemporary Christian music labels, media outlets, and festivals, while other bands are independent.

Famous quotes containing the words christian and/or rock:

    I’ve almost gained my heav’nly home; My spirit loudly sings;
    The holy ones behold they come, I hear the noise of wings.
    O come, angel band, Come and around me stand.
    O bear me away on your snowy wings, To my immortal home.
    T. Haskell, minister and hymn-writer. Published in Christian Harmony. “Angel Band,” l. 5-8.

    Here is no water but only rock
    Rock and no water and the sandy road
    The road winding above among the mountains
    Which are mountains of rock without water
    If there were water we should stop and drink
    Amongst the rock one cannot stop or think
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
