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.
Living Hope – Written and performed by Phil Wickham. This song speaks of the hope we have in Christ. Beginning with our initial separation and hopelessness apart from God, reminding us of the redemptive work of Christ, and finally culminating into a glorious chorus of Hallelujah! Praise the One who set me free.
A Thousand Tongues (Awake My Soul) – Written and performed by Matt Maher. The text of this song is taken from one of Charles Wesley’s favorite hymns, “O For A Thousand Tongues To Sing.” We are reminded that God is worthy not just of the praise we alone bring Him, but He is worthy of the praise of a thousand tongues.
Death Was Arrested – written by Ryan Heath Balltzglier and performed by North Point InsideOut. The beautiful message of this song reminds us of the freedom and life we enjoy because of the sacrifice Christ made on the cross for us. Our life truly begins at the cross when we experience His grace washing over us.
Before The Throne Of God Above – This hymn was written in 1863 by Charitie Lees Bancroft. This song speaks of Christ’s role as our advocate and Great high Priest before the heavenly Father. We can have the wonderful assurance that because our sinless Savior died for us, our just God is satisfied to look on Jesus and pardon us.
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.
