Furthering the singing of Christ exalting music through traditional & modern hymns, psalms, & spiritual songs for worship to our holy God
`speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord' — Ephesians 5:19 (LSB)
The Worship through Song Project is dedicated to the glory of God, specifically the Scriptural command to sing both of and to Him in times of joy & times of sorrow. Only in the singing to Him through traditional and modern hymns, psalms, and spiritual songs is this call for the Christian fulfilled (Col. 3:16, Eph. 5:19). The Worship through Song Project was created, not as a tirade against songs of a certain arrangement, sound, decade, or style, but rather as a result of a journey in lyrical discernment and an acute realization of what the Christian music industry has become.
The Worship through Song Project is centered around three primary focal points where Scripture focused & doctrinally grounded songs of truth to our Savior are so vital.
DEDICATED TO THE GLORY OF GOD
'I called out to Him with my mouth, and He was exalted with my tongue' (Psalm 66:17)
Just like countless others before us including the Psalmist, we are to speak truths to our hearts including in the music we expose ourselves to. This requires discernment in our preferences as the point of this individual worship through song is to reframe the heart, encourage the soul, and glorify our Saviour. Listening to ambiguous or mindless lyrics can lead us to believe we are giving God worship instead of simply seeking emotional highs.
'..speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs.' (Ephesians 5:19a)
Singing is not restricted to church or the shower. Husbands & fathers, we must teach our families Scripture saturated songs of truth & hope. Leading our families in this way gives them (and us) a priceless defense in times of trials, accurate words of praise in times of joy, and Biblical truths that these traditional & modern hymns, psalms, and spiritual songs can plant deep in their hearts.
'..singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord.' (Ephesians 5:19b)
Worship through song is a vital aspect, not a suggestion, for our regular gathering together as a church family. Songs of truth that are rich in theology and exalt Christ above all things unify the assembly and glorify our Lord. As such, we must never take lightly the content of what we teach & preach through song to one another. When we sing corrupted, careless, or meaningless lyrics in our worship with the saints, we profane the name of God.
Seeking solid, Biblical, & theologically sound music for your church?
As part of our commitment to serving the local church's needs, The Worship through Song project offers helps in choosing Scripture saturated music while avoiding doctrinally deficient & extra-Biblical praise choruses. Song categories to choose from include Core Congregational Songs, Christian Response, Songs of Lament, & Songs of Truth & Creed, and more.
An overwhelmingly high percentage of music that is found on Christian radio simply does not describe or worship the same God who is found in and authored the Bible! And, if we try to hold on to, edit, or salvage these fundamentally flawed songs written by Biblically deficient movements, we are simply destined to come away with one or two broken or endlessly repetitive choruses riddled with gaps and still devoid of any truths not found in the original artist’s work to begin with. What do we do with this?
The Worship through Song Project was founded out of a journey in 'lyrical discernment'. Rather than an assumed genre preference or an 'old vs. new' style war, the project is founded solely on Scripture and its calls for how believers should sing. Many old & new songs of all instrumentations are fundamentally flawed in their theology and many old & new songs are Biblically grounded with the truths of God.
