Songs We Sing (08.06.2017)

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 August 6, 2017, Redemption bands The Well Band (in Jasper) and Caleb Spencer (in Loogootee) led music and we sang:

 

MADE ALIVE
Written by Zach Bolen and Brian Eichelberger, 2012. This song is inspired by Colossians 2 and Ephesians 2 and focuses on how Jesus’ grace has bought us back and made us right before God.
Buy “Made Alive” by Citizens & Saints.
Download “Made Alive (Live)” by We Come Alive here.
 

BLESSED BE YOUR NAME
Written by Beth Redman, Matt Redman, 2002. This song, lyrically, is never as upbeat as it can sound. It reminds me of the book of Job (where the title was taken from). No matter the circumstances of our life, God is in control. Blessed be His name.
Buy “Blessed Be Your Name” by Matt Redman.
 
HOLY SPIRIT (Jasper only)
Written by Bryan Torwalt and Katie Torwalt, 2011.
Buy “Holy Spirit” by Bryan and Katie Torwalt.
 
ROCK OF AGES (Loogootee only)
Written by Augustus M. Toplady, 1776. Music by Thomas Hastings, 1830. I love the line “Let the water and the blood/From Thy wounded side which flowed/Be of sin the double cure/Save from wrath and make me pure.”
Buy “Rock Of Ages” by Sojourn (feat. Brooks Ritter).
 
10,000 REASONS (BLESS THE LORD)
Written by Matt Redman and Jonas Myrin, 2011. Taken from Psalm 103, this song is a great song of adoration and praise. We have so many reasons (and eternity to do it) to praise God for His goodness toward us.
Buy “10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord)” by Matt Redman.
 
LIKE A LION
Written by Daniel Bashta, 2009. “My God’s not dead/He’s surely alive/And He’s living on the inside/Roaring like a lion.” This is an anthem and one not meant to be sung quietly, but instead with confidence and faith that God — who alone brings dead faith to life — is mightier than all things.

Songs We Sing (07.30.2017)

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 30, 2017, Redemption bands At One (in Jasper) and The Loogootee Collective (in Loogootee) led music and we sang:

 

HERE IS LOVE
Written by William Rees, sometime in the mid- to late-1800s. Music by Robert Lowry, 1876. Arrangement by Ex Nihilo and Narrow Path. “Who can cease to sing His praise?” In eternity, this won’t be a problem.
Download “Here Is Love (Live)” by Narrow Path.
 

LEANING ON THE EVERLASTING ARMS
Written by Elisha A. Hoffman, 1887. Music by Anthony J. Showalter. “What have I to dread/What have I to fear/Leaning on the everlasting arms …” I think of my grandparents when we sing this song. They left a rich legacy of faith for me and they came from a generation where “leaning on the everlasting arms” meant so much more than it does now (in many ways).
Download “Leaning On The Everlasting Arms (Live)” by We Come Alive.
 
ADOPTION
Written by Cam Huxford IV and Ghost Ship, 2015. Ephesians 1:5-6 says, “God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son.” Solid lyrics reflecting on what God has given us by adopting us as His own.
Buy “Adoption” by Ghost Ship.
 
OH MY GOD
Written by Daniel Ross, Bob Foote; 2014. This original Redemption song is centered on the fact that the Gospel is deep and unfathomable, yet still simple and easy enough for a child to understand. It inspires reverence toward God, where we can simply say “oh my God, what a wonderous love/That You would show us grace.”
Buy “Oh My God” by (Redemption band) At One.
 
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.
Buy “In Christ Alone” by Kings Kaleidoscope.
 
ONLY HOPE
Written by Daniel Ross, 2010. The song is more or less taken from Ephesians 2, a great part of Scripture dedicated to explaining how we are dead in our sins but God’s saving grace makes us alive. Verse one leads into a pre-chorus that is a question (“born of man and choosing sin/who will bring me to life?”). Verse two leads into the same pre-chorus but is now a statement (“set me free and now I can see/who will bring me to life.”).

Buy “Only Hope” by (Redemption band) Narrow Path.
