Keith Getty: The importance of WHAT we sing

Posted on Tags ,

Keith Getty, one of the authors of “In Christ Alone”, talks about the importance of singing intelligent songs about God and the world He created, and I fully agree with him.

To many of our worship songs today appeal primarily to our emotions, and while that is not bad, it is not enough: it will not sustain us when our emotions change, as they inevitably will in the course of every day life.

So many songs articulate primarily how we feel about God and what we will do for Him. That’s nice but we need songs that articulate the truths of God’s holiness, our own sinfulness and need, of His love for all of us and His merciful and compassionate provision for our need, and of His might and power and ultimate victory.
