Continuing on in our focus on the person of Jesus Christ, and the worship due Him, today’s song feature is one that the rest of my family actually heard before me. They were attending a church service in a different town than I was that particular Sunday, and this song was sung. It deeply touched them and they came home telling me about. However, it wasn’t until more recently that this song really resonated with me too.
Another classic hymn, the story behind “It is Well with My Soul” is one of triumph through tragedy. It is the testimony of one man’s unwavering faith in God despite the loss of almost everything. It is a reminder for us that no matter the hard we have to navigate, God is faithful and worthy of our praise.
As stated back in May on our Worship Set 2, during each month with five weeks I will share a song useful for communion. Now these songs are appropriate for anytime, because they magnify and glorify Jesus. But I feel that they are especially fitting for this part of the service: remembering Jesus’ extreme sacrifice.
Known as modern day hymn writers, Keith Getty and Stuart Townend have co-written many great songs for the church. But perhaps the most well-known modern hymn of our day is “In Christ Alone.”
It truly feels like summer has arrived! The weather has turned warmer and the sun is shining brightly. It’s a season to celebrate and enjoy. And in the spirit of joy and celebration, let’s rejoice in our Savior and all that He’s done for us—the shining Son of God!
This week’s song feature is a powerful meditation by Keith and Kristyn Getty. Though this is not a worship song in the sense that you’d want to sing it in a congregational setting, on a personal level, the melody and lyrics stir the heart to ponder and meditate on the great sacrifice of our Savior.
