When we sing together, we are corporately singing the praises of our God. It’s a participatory activity. This “Songs We Sing” post is a weekly effort to help us better learn the songs we are singing — as well as to gather some small insight into what we are singing. If you’d like a copy of the songs listed, a link is provided (where available). For the services of July 9, 2017, Redemption worship leaders Daniel Ross (in Jasper) and Caleb Spencer (in Loogootee) led music acoustically and we sang:
GLORY TO HIS NAME
Written by Elisha Albright Hoffman and John Hart Stockton, 1878. This song is also known as “Down At The Cross.” “Come to this fountain so rich and sweet/Cast thy poor soul at the Savior’s feet/Plunge in today, and be made complete/Glory to His Name!” Download “Glory To His Name (Live)” by We Come Alive.
NOTHING BUT THE BLOOD
Written by Robert Lowry, 1876. I love the lyric “Nothing can for sin atone/Nothing but the blood of Jesus/Not of good that I have done/Nothing but the blood of Jesus.” This is a song that helps us focus on Christ’s work for us and helps us take our eyes off of our own work. Buy “Nothing But The Blood” by Page CXVI.
JESUS PAID IT ALL
Written by Elvina M. Hall, 1865. We can do nothing to earn our favor with God. Only Christ’s blood makes us holy. Not our good works, not any action we take — ONLY Christ’s blood. Buy “Jesus Paid It All” by Kristian Stanfill.
COME THOU FOUNT OF EVERY BLESSING
Written by Robert Robinson, 1758. This is a favorite hymn at Redemption. It’s such a song of yearning, pleading with God to keep us in Him. “Jesus sought me when a stranger/Wandering from the fold of God/He to rescue me from danger/Interposed His precious blood.” Buy “Come Thou Fount Of Every Blessing” by Narrow Path.
Written by Dustin Kensrue, 2013. We worship a triune God (Father, Son, Spirit) Who is three in one. This song address our Triune God in each verse (Father, Son, Spirit) and helps us remember we are only saved by grace alone. Buy “Grace Alone” by The Modern Post.

If you’d like a copy of the songs listed, a link is provided (where available). For the services of July 2, 2017, Redemption bands At One (in Jasper) and The Loogootee Collective (in Loogootee) led music and we sang:
AWESOME IS THE LORD MOST HIGH
Written by Cary Pierce, Chris Tomlin, Jesse Reeves, Jon Abel, 2006. This song appears on the Chris Tomlin album “See The Morning.” Worship is a verb and, sometimes, requires action. This is an action song. Buy “Awesome Is The Lord Most High” by Chris Tomlin.
Written by Chris Tomlin, Jesse Reeves, Jonas Myrin, Matt Redman; 2010. “Our God” is one of the most popular songs sung in churches in the past few years. The bridge is especially, powerful, echoing Romans 8. “And if our God is for us, then who could ever stop us? And if our God is with us, then what could stand against?” Buy “Our God” by Chris Tomlin.
HIS MERCY IS MORE
Written by Matt Papa and Matt Boswell, 2016. God’s grace has cast our sin as far as the “east is from the west” (Psalm 103:12). Our sins, they are many, but God’s mercy is more. This is a great song of confession and assurance rolled into one.
BEFORE THE THRONE OF GOD ABOVE
Written by Charitie Lees Bancroft (1863) and Vikki Cook (1997). The lyrics for this old hymn were written in the 19-century and revived with a new tune in the 1990s. “Before The Throne” is a song showing us that we have right standing before God because “the sinless Savior died.” It’s a really powerful song. Buy “Before The Throne of God Above” by Sojourn.
Written by Brooke Fraser; 2006. The word “hosanna” is a Hebrew word that means “O save!” It is a simple cry for our salvation. I love the line in this song that says “break my heart for what breaks Yours.” Buy “Hosanna (Live)” by Christy Nockels.
WE ARE CALLED
Written by Daniel Ross, 2008. This song was written for our study of I Peter (preached in early 2009). This is a reminder of who we, as Christians, are in God’s eyes and we have no need to fear, even in the face of trials or persecution, because we (Christians) are His people. Buy “We Are Called” by Narrow Path.

LET GOD ARISE
Written by Chris Tomlin, Ed Cash and Jesse Reeves, 2006. I love the line “Death has no sting/No final word/Our God is a god who saves.” Buy “Let God Arise” by Chris Tomlin.
MIGHTY TO SAVE
Written by Ben Fielding, Reuben Morgan, 2006. I love the focus on singing for the glory of the risen king, Jesus. Only He is mighty enough to save us, there is none other. Buy “Mighty To Save” by Hillsong Live.
GOD WITH US(Loogootee only)
Written by Jason Ingram and Leslie Jordan, 2012. Jesus. Emmanuel. He is “God with us.” God doesn’t make us come to Him via works, but He came to us, to deliver us from ourselves, death, and hell. Buy “God With Us” by All Sons & Daughters.
READY, WILLING, ABLE
Written by Daniel Ross, Mike Crockett; 2012. Taken from Luke 12:35-56, this original song focuses on keeping our hearts ready for the Master’s return. We are not called to know the hour, but only to be ready. Buy “Ready, Willing, Able” by At One.
