12 New Songs to Sing

Sing a new song to the Lord!
    Sing his praises from the ends of the earth!
Sing, all you who sail the seas,
    all you who live in distant coastlands.

(Isaiah 42:10 NLT)

Dear Beloved Friends and Family,

As the Bible commands, we seek to sing a new song to the Lord and pour out our lives as a living sacrifice of praise to our God. Thank you for joining us in that! Some of our partners sent in to us ‘new songs’ that God has given to sing recently. So we’ve compiled a list of 12 favourites that have arisen from among our partners. You can click on the song title to link to a YouTube lyric video to have a listen, and we’ve also included the song information and lyrics to each of these 12 worship songs.
 
Perhaps some of these songs will be new to you, or God will use them in a new way to bless you. We pray that God will do just that – use these songs to encourage you and remind you of his love and presence with you. As you listen to these songs and reflect on the words, may God draw you closer to him as you live to declare his praises.

Feel free also to comment and share any other new songs that God has given you to sing, or older songs that God is using in a new way in your heart right now. This is a great lead-up to the season of thanksgiving as the year winds down.

We have much to be grateful for. We think of you and remember that we are not alone in this, and we give thanks to God for you. We live in a great, supportive community that God uses to bless us each day. And we remember that nothing in all creation can separate us from God’s love in Christ Jesus our Lord. Whatever our situation and circumstances, God gives us plenty of reasons to sing and praise him.

May God bless you as you sing a new song to him for his praise and glory.

Lots of love and huge hugs,
Graham and Ellie

1. O Praise The Name (Anástasis)

I cast my mind to Calvary
Where Jesus bled and died for me
I see His wounds His hands His feet
My Saviour on that cursed tree

His body bound and drenched in tears
They laid Him down in Joseph’s tomb
The entrance sealed by heavy stone
Messiah still and all alone

O praise the Name of the Lord our God
O praise His Name forevermore
For endless days we will sing Your praise
Oh Lord oh Lord our God


Then on the third at break of dawn
The Son of heaven rose again
O trampled death where is your sting
The angels roar for Christ the King

He shall return in robes of white
The blazing sun shall pierce the night
And I will rise among the saints
My gaze transfixed on Jesus’ face

2. This Is My Father’s World

This is my Father’s world
And to my list’ning ears
All nature sings and ’round me rings
Music of the spheres
This is my Father’s world
I rest me in the thought
Of rocks and trees of skies and seas
His hand the wonders wrought

This is my Father’s world
The birds their carols raise
The morning light the lily white
Declare their Maker’s praise
This is my Father’s world
He shines in all that’s fair
In the rust’ling grass I hear Him pass
He speaks to me ev’rywhere

This is my Father’s world
O let me ne’er forget
And though the wrong seems oft so strong
God is the Ruler yet
This is my Father’s world
The battle is not done
Jesus who died shall be satisfied
And earth and heaven be one

3. What a Beautiful Name

You were the Word at the beginning
One with God the Lord Most High
Your hidden glory in creation
Now revealed in You our Christ

What a beautiful Name it is
What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King
What a beautiful Name it is
Nothing compares to this
What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus

You didn’t want heaven without us
So Jesus You brought heaven down
My sin was great Your love was greater
What could separate us now

What a wonderful Name it is
What a wonderful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King
What a wonderful Name it is
Nothing compares to this
What a wonderful Name it is
The Name of Jesus
What a wonderful Name it is
The Name of Jesus

Death could not hold You
The veil tore before You
You silence the boast of sin and grave
The heavens are roaring
The praise of Your glory
For You are raised to life again

You have no rival
You have no equal
Now and forever God You reign
Yours is the kingdom
Yours is the glory
Yours is the Name above all names

What a powerful Name it is
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King
What a powerful Name it is
Nothing can stand against
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus

You give life You are love
You bring light to the darkness
You give hope You restore ev’ry heart that is broken
And great are You Lord

It’s Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise
We pour out our praise
It’s Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise to You only


And all the earth will shout Your praise
Our hearts will cry these bones will sing
Great are You Lord

5. Yahweh

You’re my oxygen my very breath
The source of life the source of rest
Oh I need You

You’re the wind that fills these fragile sails
You carry me through crashing waves
Oh I need You

Breathing You in Yahweh Yahweh
Breathing You in Yahweh Yahweh
Breathing You in Yahweh Yahweh
Breathing You in

Stars would have no shine without Your word
So be the spark Lord let me burn
Oh I need You
Oh I need You

Burning within Yahweh Yahweh
Burning within Yahweh Yahweh
Burning within Yahweh Yahweh
Burning within

You are the great I AM
Seated upon the throne
Nothing can take Your place in my heart
I’m bringing all I am
Standing with lifted hands
Nothing can take Your place in my heart
In my heart

Singing Your name Yahweh Yahweh
Singing Your name Yahweh Yahweh
Singing Your name Yahweh Yahweh
Singing Your name

6. Everything

Even the sparrow
Has a place to lay its head
So why would I let worry steal my breath

Even the roses
You have clothed in brilliant red
Still I’m the one you love more than this

You give me everything
You give me everything
You give me everything
I need


Even the oceans
Push and pull at your command
So you can still my heart with your hand

You tell the seasons
When it’s time for them to turn
So I will trust you even when it hurts

When I can’t see you lead me
When I can’t hear you show me
When I can’t stand you carry me

When I’m lost you will find me
When I’m weak you are mighty
You are everything I need

7. Good, Good Father

Anthony Brown | Pat Barrett

I’ve heard a thousand stories
Of what they think You’re like
But I’ve heard the tender whisper
Of love in the dead of night
You tell me that You’re pleased
And that I’m never alone

You’re a Good Good Father
It’s who You are
It’s who You are
It’s who You are

And I’m loved by You
It’s who I am
It’s who I am
It’s who I am


I’ve seen many searching for answers
Far and wide
But I know we’re all searching for answers
Only You provide
Because You know just what we need
Before we say a word

You are perfect in all of Your ways
You are perfect in all of Your ways
You are perfect in all of Your ways to us

Love so undeniable I can hardly speak
Peace so unexplainable I can hardly think
As You call me deeper still
As You call me deeper still
As You call me deeper still
Into love love love

8. Goodness of God

I love You Lord
Oh Your mercy never fails me
All my days
I’ve been held in Your hands
From the moment that I wake up
Until I lay my head
I will sing of the goodness of God

All my life You have been faithful
All my life You have been so so good
With every breath that I am able
I will sing of the goodness of God


I love Your voice
You have led me through the fire
In darkest night
You are close like no other
I’ve known You as a father
I’ve known You as a friend
I have lived in the goodness of God

Your goodness is running after
It’s running after me
Your goodness is running after
It’s running after me

With my life laid down
I’m surrendered now
I give You everything
Your goodness is running after
It’s running after me

9. Behold the Throne of God Above

Charitie Lees Bancroft | Vikki Cook

Before the throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea
A great High Priest whose name is Love
Who ever lives and pleads for me
My name is graven on His hands
My name is written on His heart
I know that while in heav’n He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart
No tongue can bid me thence depart

Hallelujah
My life is found in Jesus Christ
Hallelujah
For I am His and He is mine


When Satan tempts me to despair
And tells me of the guilt within
Upward I look and see Him there
Who made an end to all my sin
Because the sinless Saviour died
My sinful soul is counted free
For God the Just is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me
To look on Him and pardon me

Behold Him there the risen Lamb
My perfect spotless righteousness
The great unchangeable I Am
The King of glory and of grace
One with Himself I cannot die
My soul is purchased with His blood
My life is hid with Christ on high
With Christ my Saviour and my God
With Christ my Saviour and my God

I bow before the cross of Christ
And marvel at this love divine
God’s perfect Son was sacrificed
To make me righteous in God’s eyes
This river’s depths I cannot know
But I can glory in its flood
The Lord Most High has bowed down low
And poured on me His glorious love
And poured on me His glorious love

10. My Lighthouse

In my wrestling and in my doubts
In my failures You won’t walk out
Your great love will lead me through
You are the peace in my troubled sea whoa oh
You are the peace in my troubled sea

In the silence You won’t let go
In the questions Your truth will hold
Your great love will lead me through
You are the peace in my troubled sea whoa oh
You are the peace in my troubled sea

My Lighthouse my Lighthouse
Shining in the darkness
I will follow You oh

My Lighthouse my Lighthouse
I will trust the promise
You will carry me safe to shore
Safe to shore safe to shore safe to shore


I won’t fear what tomorrow brings
With each morning I’ll rise and sing
My God’s love will lead me through
You are the peace in my troubled sea whoa oh
You are the peace in my troubled sea

Fire before us
You’re the brightest
You will lead us
Through the storms

11. Yet Not I But Through Christ In Me

Jonny Robinson | Michael Farren | Rich Thompson

What gift of grace is Jesus my redeemer
There is no more for heaven now to give
He is my joy my righteousness and freedom
My steadfast love my deep and boundless peace

To this I hold my hope is only Jesus
For my life is wholly bound to his
Oh how strange and divine I can sing all is mine
Yet not I but through Christ in me

The night is dark but I am not forsaken
For by my side the Saviour he will stay
I labour on in weakness and rejoicing
For in my need his power is displayed

To this I hold my Shepherd will defend me
Through the deepest valley he will lead
Oh the night has been won and I shall overcome
Yet not I but through Christ in me

No fate I dread I know I am forgiven
The future sure the price it has been paid
For Jesus bled and suffered for my pardon
And he was raised to overthrow the grave

To this I hold my sin has been defeated
Jesus now and ever is my plea
Oh the chains are released I can sing I am free
Yet not I but through Christ in me

With every breath I long to follow Jesus
For he has said that he will bring me home
And day by day I know he will renew me
Until I stand with joy before the throne

To this I hold my hope is only Jesus
All the glory evermore to him
When the race is complete still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I but through Christ in me

When the race is complete still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I but through Christ in me
Yet not I but through Christ in me

Worthy of ev’ry song we could ever sing
Worthy of all the praise we could ever bring
Worthy of ev’ry breath we could ever breathe
We live for You

Jesus the name above ev’ry other name
Jesus the only one who could ever save
Worthy of ev’ry breath we could ever breathe
We live for You
We live for You

Holy there is no one like You
There is none beside You
Open up my eyes in wonder and show me who You are
And fill me with Your heart
And lead me in Your love to those around me

I will build my life upon Your love
It is a firm foundation
I will put my trust in You alone
And I will not be shaken
