Sing a New Song

A new year is upon us. During Advent and at Christmas, we were challenged to understand the incredible gift that we have been given in Christ, to reflect on what Christ has done for each of us and for the world, and to look forward with anticipation to when Christ will return and the Kingdom of God will be fully realized.

 

As Psalm 96 proclaims, the time for each us to sing a new song is right now!

 

What new song will you sing to the Lord in word and deed this year?

 

Below you can read about and listen to some songs that might challenge you to sing and and follow God’s call in a new way this year!  One of the songs below might even be completely new to you.

"Hymn of the Holy Spirit,” Pat Barrett, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LgguVaGqHE8  

These are such great words:   “Holy Spirit, guide my speaking words of grace and truth abound. Let my lips be filled with stories of the mercy that I've found.”

“Wood and Nails,” The Porters Gate, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=odisftO1uLE   

Great verse: "The   kingdom's come and built upon wood and nails gripped with joyfulness. So send me out, within Your ways, knowing that the task is finished. The dead will rise and give You praise wood and nails will not hold them down.”

 

“Immortal Invisible,” Laura Story, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vvAeMFLUiQ&t=66s   

A contemporary song that expounds on the hymn, “Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise.” It has quite alot to say!

 “O Love That Will Not Let Me Go,” Indelible Grace, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVOG15Zj5KM  

A modern take using the words of a classic hymn. The idea that God’s love gets a hold of us and will not let us go no matter what !

 

“Graves Into Gardens,” Brandon Lake, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KwX1f2gYKZ4  

A wonderful reminder: “ You turn mourning to dancing; You give beauty for ashes; You turn shame into glory; You’re the only one who can!  You turn graves into gardens; You turn bones into armies; You turn seas into highways; You’re the only one who can!” 

 

“Jireh,” Naomi Raine, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfV20k9TXKw  

“Jireh, You are more than enough” is so very true in my life.  “I will be content in every circumstance.  You are Jireh, You are enough.”

“Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee,” Carrie Underwood, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_yaYH5ablhA  This phrase is so encouraging “Ever singing, march we onward, victors in the midst of strife.  Joyful music leads us sunward in the triumph song of life” 

“Abba, I Belong to You,” Jonathan & Melissa Helser,  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7sroPrjCoGY    Great words: “You’re (God) more real than the ground I’m standing on.  You’re more real than the wind in my lungs.  Abba, I belong to You!”  How wonderful it is to belong to such a mighty God!
