For Him Who Has Ears to Hear (1977)

Updated: Feb 17

For Him Who Has Ears to Hear is the debut album by Christian singer - songwriter

Keith Green. It was released on May 20, 1977 by Sparrow Records. Considered to be a landmark album, For Him Who Has Ears to Hear features many songs that would soon be covered by many Christian artists with their interpretations and become classics. The album is produced by Green and Bill Maxwell.

The tracks "Your Love Broke Through," a song that Green co-wrote with fellow CCM artist and songwriter Randy Stonehill, "You Put This Love in My Heart" and "He'll Take Care of the Rest" were early Christian radio hits and were his standard Christian pop songs. CCM Magazine ranked this album in the Top 5 at number five in their 2001 book The 100 Greatest Albums in Christian Music. Green also does a cover of Annie Herring's "Easter Song" (originally recorded by 2nd Chapter of Acts featuring Herring) with Green adding an additional verse.

In March 1980, the album, along with his second album No Compromise, made its first appearance on Billboard magazine's first ever Top Inspirational Albums chart (renamed Top Christian Albums) and climbed to number 14.
