Songs We Sing (10.22.2017)

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. See the Spotify playlist below — updated weekly — to hear songs for this week. 

 

 

For the services of October 22, 2017, Redemption bands The Jasper Collective (in Jasper) and Narrow Path (in Loogootee) will lead music and we will sing:

 

ON OUR SIDE

Written by Chris Tomlin, Ed Cash, Jesse Reeves, 2004. This is another Chris Tomlin song that we’ve more or less revamped in style to make it our own. Romans 8 says, “if God be for us, who can be against us?” A great encouragement for Christians.

 

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.

 

OH GOD

Written by Zach Bolen, 2012. In the valleys, in the heights, God has shown us through the sacrifice of Jesus, He will won’t abandon or forsake us.

 

YOU NEVER LET GO

Written by Beth Redman, Matt Redman, 2005. CCJ sings this one very well. We love singing this one with you. 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.

 

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 (Redemption band) Narrow Path.

For the services of October 15, 2017, Redemption bands Always At The Ready (in Jasper) and Day 41 (in Loogootee) will lead music and we will sing:

 

HERE IS OUR KING

Written by David Crowder, 2005. God is a God of redemption and forgiveness. “Here is our God who’s come, to bring us BACK to Him. He is the One, He is Jesus!”

 

GRACE ALONE

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.

 

THE LOVE OF GOD

Written by Frederick M. Lehman, Meir Ben Isaac Nehorai; 1917 (Arrangement by MercyMe). No matter how often we sing it or say it or write it, nothing can describe the love of God for us.

 

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.

 

ABSENT FROM FLESH

Written by Jamie Barnes, 2011. This song is based around the hope we have that, one day, all shackles of sin will be cast off and we will live with God in eternity. This is a modern adaptation of an old Isaac Watts text.

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 a free version of “Glory To His Name (Live)” by We Come Alive.

 

ABSENT FROM FLESH

THE OLD RUGGED CROSS

Written by George Bennard, 1913. This slow song of lament was a great way to reflect on Jesus’ sacrifice. Through the cross, we gain new life. Download “The Old Rugged Cross (Live On Good Friday)” by Narrow Path.

 

NEVER THE SAME

Written by Bob Foote, Mike Crockett, Daniel Ross, 2013. This song springs from the idea that after one comes face to face with the risen Jesus, things are never the same. The curse of Adam has been displaced by Christ’s work on the cross and resurrection from the dead. Buy “Never The Same” by (Redemption band) At One.

 

I SAW THE LIGHT

Written by Hank Williams (Sr.); 1948, Additional lyrics by Johnny Cash and David Crowder. This is a simple song about the utter joy of being saved by God through Jesus. Ultimately, by the final verse, we see that we see the light because Jesus is the light.

For the services of October 1, 2017, Redemption bands At One (in Jasper) and Into The Fire (in Loogootee) will lead music and we will sing:

 

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.

 

ABSENT FROM FLESH

Written by Jamie Barnes, 2011. This song is based around the hope we have that, one day, all shackles of sin will be cast off and we will live with God in eternity. This is a modern adaptation of an old Isaac Watts text.

 

MY SAVIOR’S LOVE

Written by Charles H. Gabriel, Edwin O. Excell, 1905. Arrangement by Chris Tomlin, 2006. This is a slowed-down version of the hymn “I Stand Amazed In The Presence.”

 

ALL CREATURES OF OUR GOD AND KING

Written by Francis of Assisi, circa 1225 (i.e. this is really old). Arrangement by David Crowder, 2002. This song really says it all. “Alleluia” (Praise be to God!). Everything praises Him.

 

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.

Song Teaching: “Absent From Flesh”

Learn the newest song we’re singing

Beginning in October, Redemption Christian Church will be singing a new song together called “Absent From Flesh,” originally performed by Jamie Barnes and Sojourn Music and written by Jamie Barnes (adapted from text by Issac Watts).

 
Verse 1
Absent from flesh O blissful thought
What joy this moment brings
Freed from the blame my sin has brought
From pain and death and its sting

Verse 2
Absent from flesh O glorious day
In one triumphant stroke
My reckoning paid my charges dropped
And the bonds round my hands are broke

Chorus
I go where God and glory shine
To one eternal day
And this failing body I now resign
For the angels point my way
For the angels point my way

Verse 3
Absent from flesh then rise my soul
Where feet nor wings could climb
Beyond the sky where planets roll
And beyond all keep of time
 

Take a look at the above video to see Redemption worship ministers Caleb Spencer and Daniel Ross leading this song acoustically. Watch several times to get the song planted in your head so we can sing it loudly together beginning in October.
