The kids loved singing this song at the Scripture Assembly I was at last year. Once you’ve learnt the song, try singing it without the music and see how long you can go for ‘Ooooooooh’ with one breath!
Behold our God – Sovereign Grace Music
This song takes us on a journey from creation to the cross. The chorus reminds us of God enthroned in glory – just as the people in the story recognised that Jesus was their king and welcomed him.
Jesus, Strong and Kind – City Alight feat. Colin Buchanan
There’s a lot to like about this song. It’s proof that kid’s songs don’t have to always be happy-clappy songs, and it works well as a song for adults too (the worship video is a great picture of this!) This song also provides a timely reminder of God’s strength, kindness and presence with us.
This morning we hear about the willingness of Jesus to go to the cross for us. The songs I have chosen help us to reflect on the enormity of this act of love. That he went to Jerusalem knowing what was ahead of him. Through His death on the cross Jesus made a way for us to not to be separated from God anymore. His blood was shed so we can live. Thinking about this should bring our hearts to place of thankfulness and worship. As you listen to or sing the songs know that Jesus did this for you.
