Listen to “Holy Water” by the Band Who Opened for Chris Tomlin

Raw desperation soaks this song in the needy humility of a homeless wanderer. The sparse, heavy-hitting percussion provides a desert-like backdrop for the begging harmonies. The lyrics read like a modern-day Psalm, unpolished and brimming with meaning. Listen to We The Kingdom’s first single, “Holy Water.”

The song is great except for the title and final line of the chorus. After some beautiful poetic lines what kind of image is created by “holy water on my skin”?
Those little bowls of water in the catholc church? The preist sprikling it on a coffin? A charlatan selling it on tv? Only one thing can be deduced when seemingly mature Christian artists use such unbiblical wording in their song.
