New Hymns

God Is Our Song
Psalm 118:14 reads, the LORD is my strength and song; and he has become my salvation.  (The Scripture can also be found in Exodus 15:2.)  Music is a wonderful way to worship God ~ but have you ever thought about God being music? These new songs provide hope and joy, and we pray that they will touch your heart!

Note:  YouTube and Vevo videos sometimes have little commercials in them – usually an ad that can be closed within a few seconds.  (This is not part of our website, but theirs.)  When a YouTube video ends, the screen suggests other related videos.  Please keep in mind that we recommend only what we share!

Hillsong Worship ~ Who You Say I Am
The latest outpouring of worship from Hillsong Worship is the lead track from their brand new live album, There Is More.  The song invites us to claim our identity from God, who calls us his own.

Steffany Gretzinger ~ Sing My Way Back
An early album from Steffany’s album Blackout (released on Easter weekend), “Sing My Way Back” is a tender expression of a soul’s return to God through music.

Sanctus Real ~ Confidence
The first single from the band’s upcoming album (scheduled for release on April 27) is a buoyant expression of courage in times of need.  It’s also extremely catchy, but we don’t mind it being stuck in our heads!

Audrey Assad ~ Drawn to You
After sharing “Deliverer” last month, we introduce “Drawn to You”, the closing track of Audrey Assad’s Evergreen, just released on February 23.  “After everything I’ve lost, I’m still drawn to you,” sings Assad, a plaintive expression of hope beyond all measure.

Tori Kelly ~ So Will I (100 Billion X)
This unreleased version of Hillsong’s latest hit is an acoustic take by pop star Tori Kelly, known in the pop world for “Hollow” and the Christian world for “I’ll Find You” (with Lecrae).  It’s a beautiful rendition that for now is only available on YouTube.

Cory Asbury ~ Endless Alleluia
When we sang this song in church this season, we realized that Cory Asbury has an incredible range.  There’s one note in this song that’s so hard to hit, but he gets it every time!  The closing track from his solo album Reckless Love is a gorgeous ballad with an encouraging dual message about enjoying the now and turning to God at the beginning and end of the day.  If it reminds you of a certain hit by Leonard Cohen, all the better!

Rend Collective ~ Counting Every Blessing
The Irish band’s follow-up to “Rescuer” is another ebullient song, instantly hummable due to an extremely catchy chorus.  The song speaks of God’s goodness through every season.  The surprise comes in the final minute, when the song changes gear from electric to acoustic.

Michael W. Smith ~ Surrounded (Fight My Battles)
Michael W. Smith has not one, but TWO new albums: the live album Surrounded and the studio album A Million Lights.  We are doubly blessed!  This exuberant sing-a-long began as spontaneous worship, and since then has become an anthem.
