Clicking the song titles will take you to the lyrics. Below the songs, you can find a brief example of one way you might think of these songs.

How They Fit In:
There are many ways to think about the significance of songs and the way they fit together–-this is simply one way you can look at these songs in light of this week’s theme.
Heart Won't Stop: We sang this song to articulate and celebrate what Easter shows us about how far God is willing to go to set things right with us.
House of God Forever: We sang this song to echo Psalm 23, which was one of yesterday's readings, celebrating God's care for us.
Death In His Grave: This song allows us to rehearse again the Resurrection story as we go through the Easter season, emphasizing both the suffering of Jesus and the victory of Jesus over death.
Shadow: This song is about the difficulty of being formed in the way of Christ.
Pulse: We sang this song to look over our shoulder at last week's songs. This is what we said about Pulse then: We sang this song to acknowledge the interconnectivity of Creation and to draw ourselves toward loving our neighbors as ourselves.
Doxology: We close our time together each week with this proclamation that God is worthy of praise from every inch of the cosmos.
