This I Believe

The group from Hillsong is sure coming out with some wonderful worship songs! This one is called ‘This I Believe’ and is basically the Christian Creed that is shared by all denominations of Biblical Christian faith. There are two creeds that share the same message. They are the Nicene and Apostolic Creeds.

It covers how to address God; the virgin birth; an examination of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ; his role as judge; the role of the Trinity; the role of the church; the forgiveness of sins; and eternal life.

Quoted from Christianity Today.

This reminds me of older hymns where each verse speaks of Christian doctrine and is so rich to sing. Am going to be singing this song tomorrow at church.

The lyrics for this song are:

Our Father everlasting
The all creating One
God Almighty

Through Your Holy Spirit
Conceiving Christ the Son
Jesus our Savior

Chorus:
I believe in God our Father
I believe in Christ the Son
I believe in the Holy Spirit
Our God is three in one
I believe in the resurrection
That we will rise again
For I believe in the name of Jesus

Our Judge and our Defender
Suffered and crucified
Forgiveness is in You

Descended into darkness
You rose in glorious life
Forever seated high

(Chorus)

I believe in You
I believe You rose again
I believe that Jesus Christ is Lord

(Chorus)

I believe in life eternal
I believe in the virgin birth
I believe in the saints’ communion
And in Your holy Church
I believe in the resurrection
When Jesus comes again
For I believe, in the name of Jesus

(Chorus)

For I believe in the name of Jesus

Do you sing this worship song in your church too? It’s sounds great on guitar.

VIDEO of Silent Night A Capella

‘Silent Night’ was originally written on the guitar in the 1800’s. It’s amazing how popular this song has been through the ages. Here is a delightful arrangement for voices. This is such a special arrangement, I thought you would love to hear it too! The group is called ‘Pentatonix‘ and the name was inspired by the pentatonic scale. The pentatonic scale has 5 notes.

This is such a peaceful rendition and just delightful to listen to!

If you would like to learn an easy arrangement of ‘Silent Guitar’ for guitar, I’ve got it posted free on this page – ‘Easy Christmas Songs for Guitar’ program.

For a beautiful solo guitar arrangement… you can find it in our ‘Christmas Songs and Solos’ program. 

Our God Is HUGE

GodsLoveForUsIn our Women’s Bible Study last night, we watch the DVD again of ‘How Great Is Our God‘. I’ve posted the video here and if you haven’t seen it, you will LOVE it!! Louie talks about how huge our Universe is and tries to compare everything in terms of the earth being a golf ball.

Then, when you realize how small we are, he ends by talking about how wonderfully and fearfully we are made. In Ephesians, Paul prays that we would have the power to understand God’s great love for us.

When you can start to get your head around how Magnificent He is, then you might just begin to comprehend how much He LOVES us to have sent His only Son to dies for our sins!

I always like to end my Newsletters with ‘Worship Him with all of you heart because He loves you with all of HIS! Carve out 40 minutes to see the video… Click Here.

Mary Did You Know Video

 

Christmas is around the corner and this is a wonderful arrangement of ‘Mary Did You Know.’ The lyrics are written below the video. The group singing is called Pentatonix.  PTX is comprised of 5 singers based out of Texas. They specialize in a cappella singing. This song has a very special message and PTX does a superb job of singing it. Hope you enjoy the video…

Mary Did You Know?

Mary did you know that your baby boy will some day walk on water?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will save our sons and daughters?
Did you know that your baby boy has come to make you new?
This child that you’ve delivered, will soon deliver you.

Mary did you know that your baby boy will give sight to a blind man?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will calm a storm with his hand?
Did you know that your baby boy has walked where angels trod?
And when your kiss your little baby, you have kissed the face of God.

Oh Mary did you know

The blind will see, the deaf will hear, the dead will live again.
The lame will leap, the dumb will speak, the praises of the lamb

Mary did you know that your baby boy is Lord of all creation?
Mary did you know that your baby boy would one day rule the nations?
Did you know that your baby boy is heaven’s perfect Lamb?
This sleeping child you’re holding is the great I AM

Listen to this wonderful arrangement…

 

Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art.
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.

Be Thou my battle Shield, Sword for the fight;
Be Thou my Dignity, Thou my Delight;
Thou my soul’s Shelter, Thou my high Tower:
Raise Thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.

Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise,
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art.

High King of Heaven, my victory won,
May I reach Heaven’s joys, O bright Heaven’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.
