SOTW - April
Forever Sing Your Praise - Canyon Hills Worship
This song made Song Of The Week on 1st April, starting off our 3rd month of Song Of The Week reminding us of God’s love.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (NLT)
“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.”
Forever Sing Your Praise is a worship song that acknowledges God’s amazing love for us, the pure extravagance of it, and how God Himself is love. “You are always patient, You are always kind…” “You are ever faithful, You will never fail…” - using the words of the famous Corinthians verse. How can we not want to sing and worship a God who is all the characteristics of love “Standing in your presence I am so amazed, That the God of ages loves me and knows my name. I am undeserving still you gave me grace, Who am I that you would love me and take my place.” A reminder that God sent Jesus to die in our place and for our sins to be forgiven, THAT is how much He loves us!
Fear No More - Building 429
This song feature as Song Of The Week on 8th April
Deuteronomy 31:8 (NLT)
“Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.”
The title of this song is quite self explanatory, but the running theme through this song is about how we have no need to fear when God is by our side. As people who are living in the world that we are in today, this is an important thing to remember and keep fresh in our minds as Christians.

This song made Song Of The Week on 15th April. This was the Holy Week addition to our Song Of The Week running up to the great celebration of Easter.
John 19:18 (NLT)
“There they nailed him to the cross. Two others were crucified with him, one of either side, with Jesus between them.”
Just The Cross is an Easter based banger that tells the story from Jesus carrying the cross to His crucifixion “Oh the cross upon Your shoulders, Oh Your love for all mankind, Every step that You were taking, was a step in place of mine”, to when the He won the battle for us rising from the dead and conquering death. “You are alive, our risen King, Your love is stronger than the grave, Now on the throne, seated on high. Yours is the victory”.
