Music & Worship
We add new worship songs about once per month so we have two new songs for January and February we’d like you to get to know.
O Praise the Name (Anastasis) is a powerful and very singable worship song that declares our active praise to God while reciting the redemption story through its verses. It starts with the crucifixion and ends with the resurrection and points us to eternity. Our congregation quickly adopted this one and sang it the very first time as if they’ve been singing it for weeks. That is a great sign of a very singable worship song. There are many, many wonderful Christian songs being released but not all of them have this special quality of being truly a congregational song. Enjoy this song as you get to know it.
1000 Tongues has a great driving feel and brings some needed energy and excitement. While the title is reminiscent of the great hymn of the great hymn O For 1000 Tongues to Sing it doesn’t have the great theological depth of that hymn, but has its own important role in congregational worship. Through the simplicity of the very singable chorus and the the energy it draws from us as we participate in worship, we are encouraged to loudly proclaim the great truth of God’s grace and glory. It is a song that unites us in singing praise to our Lord encouraging active participatory worship.
Do you use Spotify? Many people have found it a great resource for listening and enjoying music. If you do, be sure to check out our Spotify list titled “Our Songs” which highlights many of the songs we regularly sing in worship. This list can be helpful to get to know the songs we sing, but also can be a very encouraging and uplifting grouping of songs that you will likely enjoy. Check it out!
