GRACE GREATER THAN OUR SIN
Words written by Julia H. Johnston (1911) and music by Daniel B. Towner (1910). Ephesians 2:8 says, “for it is by grace you have been saved … .” This song is a great reflection on God’s grace. “Dark is the stain that we cannot hide. What can avail to wash it away? Look! There is flowing a crimson tide. Whiter than snow you may be today.”
Buy “Grace That Is Greater” by Bart Millard.
 
IN CHRIST ALONE
Written by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend; 2001. This is a modern hymn (meaning, it’s written in the classic hymn format) that has also become a modern classic in the church. It’s the complete gospel in four verses and is a great, great song.

HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD
Written by Chris Tomlin, Ed Cash, Jesse Reeves, 2004. It’s funny how a song that’s less than a decade old can seem like it’s a million years old. This is, without a doubt, one of the most popular song sung in churches for the past several years. In reality, it’s a simple song of praise to our great God (“the name above all names/worthy of all praise”).
