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. See the Spotify playlist below — updated weekly — to hear songs for this week.
For the services of January 28, 2018, Redemption bands Narrow Path (in Jasper) and Into The Fire (in Loogootee) will lead music and we will sing:
HERE IS LOVE
Written by William Rees, sometime in the mid- to late-1800s. Music by Robert Lowry, 1876. Arrangement by Narrow Path. “Who can cease to sing His praise?” In eternity, this won’t be a problem.
LIFT YOUR HEAD WEARY SINNER (CHAINS)
Written by David Crowder, Ed Cash. Seth Philpott; 2014. This “stomp” song is an anthem for all of us as “prodigals” stumbling towards grace. The chains of sin can no longer hold us as Jesus has wiped away all our sins and broken the bondage of sin.
NEAR THE CROSS
Written by Fanny Crosby and W. Howard Doane, 1869. A great hymn of prayer and reflection on the cross.
YOU NEVER LET GO
Written by Beth Redman, Matt Redman, 2005. This is such a great song of hope and faith, nowing that there will be an end to the troubles of this life, but until then, we will praise Him.
A WAY OUT OF NO WAY
Written by Daniel Ross, Kurt Neighbors; 2010. This is a song of hope and trust knowing that God is in control of things, not us. Buy “A Way Out Of No Way” by (Redemption band) Narrow Path.
