“Lamb of God”
Brenda Jefferson feat. Stephen Hurd
Scripture Music Group

By Robert M. Marovich

Although the bouncy “Lamb of God” is advertised as a Dr. Brenda Jefferson cut featuring Stephen Hurd, she’s not anywhere to be found (except as the songwriter). It’s the muscular-voiced Hurd who leads the call-and-response with the background vocalists on this rhythmically undulating song of praise.

Hurd begins by asking all listeners to turn up the volume, and later declares he wants to have some church. He invites the BGVs to go there with him, they do, and together they continue raising the praises to the steady handclapping beat. Engaging and spirited track.
