Do you want to hear that new song we did Sunday but don’t remember what it is called? Here are the latest new songs we have recently incorporated into our rotation.
He Will Hold Me Fast, words and music by Matt Merker and performed by Keith and Kristyn Getty. This songs speaks of the incredible grasp Jesus has for those He calls His own. While we may doubt, experience fear, or even fall into sin, we are held securely by Christ’s hold on us.
What A Beautiful Name It Is, written by Ben Fielding & Brooke Ligertwood. This song reflects on the person of Jesus Christ, who He is, the work He has done for us on the cross, and the kingdom that is His to come. Nothing this world can offer compares to the name of Jesus.
Lion And The Lamb, written by Brenton Brown and Leeland Mooring. This great song speaks of two aspects of the nature of Jesus Christ; He is both the conquering Lion of the tribe of Judah and the Lamb who was slain. As the Lion of Judah, He fulfills the prophecy of Genesis 49:9 and is the Messiah who would come from the tribe of Judah. As the Lamb of God, He is the perfect and ultimate sacrifice for sin.
Stand in Awe, written and performed by Phil Wickham. This song reminds us of the vastness and greatness of our God. As we reflect on the character of God, we are left standing in awe of His power and love for us. Our response is “Amen, We Praise You!”
Glory Be, written and performed by Chris Tomlin. The life message of every believer ought to be one of praise and glory to our God and Father. This song peaks with the declarative statement in the bridge, As it was, and is, and ever shall be, AMEN! Glory be to God!
The Lord Is My Salvation, written and performed by Keith and Krystin Getty. This is a song of testimony, inspired in part by Psalm 27. Our witness, at the simplest level, is telling another person what Christ has done for us. Singing songs of faith helps build our confidence in the God who calls us to serve, with both our words and our lives.
Grace Alone, written and performed by Dustin Kensrue. This song reminds us of our necessity of God’s grace in our lives. Although we attempt to sometimes live our lives by our own means and strength, it is truly through His grace that enables us to live for Him.
Jesus, written and performed by Chris Tomlin. This song speaks to all the truth that is Jesus – His power, His love, His comfort, His healing. What a great Savior and Redeemer we have in Christ, who reigns forever.
Because He Lives (Amen), written by Matt Maher from the Saints and Sinners album. This song is a worshipful response of the gratitude we have to God because Christ lives. Based on John 14:19, “Because I live, you also will live.” You will recognize the words to the bridge as it draws from the familiar hymn, Because He Lives, by Bill Gaither.
One True God, written by Steven Curtis Chapman from the Worship and Believe album. This celebration song focuses on the uniqueness and greatness of Christ. Jesus, our one true God, is Lord over all creation and is the giver of life. In love, He was slain for us, He rose in power, He reigns forever, and we have seen the glory of the Son of God!
You Are My Worship, written by Greg Smith and Ryan Squitieri and performed by Among The Thirsty. Romans 12:1 says, Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God–this is your spiritual act of worship. Worship is so much more than singing a song to God. Our worship involves obedience in life and making His desires our desires. This song captures the mind-set that we as believers ought to strive for.
Even so, Come, written by Chris Tomlin and performed by Kristian Stanfill, from the Passion – Even So Come album. The message of this song focuses on the anticipation and readiness of the church, His bride, to see the return of Christ. While we are eagerly waiting His return, we are exhorted to share the gospel with those who don’t know Christ, before it is too late. He is coming soon indeed.
