Sundays are the best! I love singing God’s praises with the Church!
As you might imagine, worship through song is a huge part of my relationship with Jesus, but not just corporately. My worship is both corporate and private. My private worship through song looks a little different than a Sunday morning. For one thing, there are songs that I absolutely love for my time of private worship, but they are not part of our Sunday morning repertoire. For this staff journal I want to share with you some songs that I’ve been using a lot in my private worship.
There’s a couple of Shane and Shane songs that I keep listening to that are basically Psalms put to modern music:
There are also several songs by Citizens and Saints I’ve listening to:
How Majestic – this is a call for all people, whether healthy or sick, young or old, hurting or rejoicing, doubting or assured, to come to Jesus and receive his mercy, to know you are loved and rejoice in his majestic name!
Relent - this is a beautiful song of repentance about letting go of chasing after the things of this world, surrendering to God, and finding peace and belonging at the feet of Jesus.
His Mercy Is More – this is a modern hymn about God’s mercy. Though our sins are many, His mercy is greater than all of our failings. Our response to His mercy is praise!
And just this week I found a new song that CityAlight released:
I hope that many of you use the songs we sing on Sunday mornings in your private worship, but here are some other songs to consider as part of your time with Jesus! They have been greatly encouraging to me.
The more we worship privately, the sweeter our corporate worship will be!
On Sunday we will be talking about Thanksgiving, and the kid’s worship team will be sharing a special song with us!
Looking forward to Sunday,
