New Album Release: Begone Unbelief

Lori Sealy has recently released her 13 song CD, “Begone Unbelief.”

Lori Sealy has recently released her 13 song CD, “Begone Unbelief.” It features her songwriting, with rich vocals, as well as rhythmic guitar and piano work.

Lori says of this album, “Lyrically, “Begone Unbelief” is a thoughtful project on wrestling and redemption.  I strive to deal honestly with issues of Christian doubt and with the hope that can be found even in a miniscule mustard seed of faith in Christ Jesus.”

Lori is married to Phillip Sealy, church planting pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Sylva, N.C.; they have two children, Joshua (10) and Elizabeth (8).

Speaking of herself, she says that she is a full time wife and mother, a former atheist who has been made to see her folly, a song writer, a ponderer of all things theological and philosophical, and a recipient of grace upon grace.

In this album, Lori sings familiar and new hymns but with new tunes and orchestration. Listeners will find a renewed appreciation for familiar words from hymns like “Come, Ye Sinner,” “God Moves in a Mysterious Way,” Whate’er My God Ordains is Right,” and “Rock of Ages” with tunes that will bring a fresh accent to the truths in these texts.

The words to the signature hymn, “Begone Unbelief,” were written by John Newton and can be heard here:  04 Begone Unbelief. [Editor’s note: the original URL (link) referenced in this article is no longer valid, so the link has been removed.]

 

Begone Unbelief
Words by John Newton and Lori Sealy
Music by Lori Sealy
“I believe, help my unbelief”Mark 9:24

Begone unbelief, my Savior is near,
and for my relief will surely appear;
by prayer let me wrestle, and He will perform;
with Christ in the vessel, I smile at the storm.
Though dark be my way, since He is my guide,
‘tis mine to obey and His to provide;
though cisterns be broken, and creatures all fail,
the Word He has spoken shall surely prevail.

His love in time past forbids me to think
He’ll leave me at last in trouble to sink;
while each Ebenezer that I have in review,
confirms His good pleasure to help see me through.
Oh,why should I complain of want or distress,
temptation or pain? He has told me no less;
the heirs of salvation, I know from His Word,
through much tribulation must follow the Lord.

Begone, unbelief!
Cruel doubts fly away.
Lord I believe, increase my weak faith.
Blessed Son of David have mercy, oh, please.
Oh, begone unbelief!
Begone far from me!

How bitter that cup, no heart can conceive,
which He drank right up that sinners might live;
His way was much rougher and darker than mine;
did Jesus thus suffer, and shall I repine?
Since all that I meet shall work for my good,
the bitter is sweet, and the medicine food;
though painful at present, ‘twill cease before long;
and then, Oh! how pleasant, the conqueror’s song!

Begone unbelief!
Cruel doubts fly away.
Lord I believe, increase my weak faith.
Blessed Son of David, have mercy, oh, please.
Begone unbelief!
Begone far from me!
Oh, begone unbelief!
Begone far from me.
