The EP starts off with the song "Brighter". This song draws you in right from the beginning with an upbeat and joyful sound. As the name suggests, Brighter talks about how God is light, and how in the light always overcomes the darkness. It is a very encouraging song with a message of hope for listeners.
"You Gave" is the last song on "Songs of Ascent". This song is probably the most mellow song on the EP, yet it still has a good beat and rhythm that you can tap your foot along with. You Gave is also very catchy and easy to sing a long with, which is always a plus!
"You gave new life to me, risen and resurrected Lord
Showed me how life will be forgiven and forever yours"
From the song "You Gave".
