Sophie Keye releases 'Trinkets' (CCM)

Sophie Keye, an Australian Christian singer-songwriter, based in Ecuador, announces new single ‘Trinkets’ from her debut album. A song that calls out the hypocrisy in the church and in ourselves.

Sophie Keye’s latest single “Trinkets” pulls no punches in calling out the hypocrisy she sees in parts of the church and in herself. Each verse tackles a different way our representation of God can be distorted into something that fits our own image and agenda.

“The chorus of Trinkets “Kumbaya my Lord” conveys two things at the same time. On the one hand, it is a tongue-in-cheek way of calling out people who are superficially religious but hypocrites on the inside. On the other hand, as “Kumbaya my Lord” translates to “ Come by here, my Lord ”, ‘Trinkets’ is not just a critique of hypocrisy in the church, but a genuine cry for God to come and change the distorted ways we see Him and represent Him to the world.

'Trinkets' Lyrics

Some like the God of a box of trinkets
Keep him all locked up so safe and warm
Pick him up dust him off on a Sunday morning
And put him back when the dawn arises

Kumbaya my Lord

Others like the God of a checklist
A set of rules to follow so religiously
Helps us measure ourselves up against others
And we forget he requires mercy

Kumbaya my Lord

Some talk to God like he’s a vending machine
Press his buttons then take what you want
Nevermind about loving your neighbours
As long as you get the right flavours

Kumbaya my Lord
