On Tuesday we posted an article by Gary McBride on singing hymns at the Lord’s Supper. One comment we received was a request listing appropriate songs for the Lord’s Supper. It was an excellent request so here is a list of some songs that are suitable for corporate worship.
The melodies may not appeal to everyone but the criteria for selecting these are content first and the melody second. Obviously music is very subjective so I am sure not all of these will appeal to everyone.
We will post articles like this periodically and please send in some suggestions in the comments section below. I have added some personal notes about the songs where I felt was needed.
- How Deep the Father’s Love for us by Stuart Townend
- Some may have trouble with the line “The Father turns His face away.”
- In Christ Alone by Keith Getty/Stuart Townend
- The line “From life’s first cry to final breath Jesus commands my destiny.” may lean towards a Calvinistic view but I sing it as referring to my life in Christ not from birth.
- Before the Throne of God Above by Charitie Lees Bancroft/Vikki Cook
- This is actually an old hymn written with a new tune.
- Here I Am to Worship by Tim Hughes
- Lamb of God by Andi Rozier, Jason Ingram, Meredith Andrews
- He Paid a Debt by Ellis J. Crum
- Often sung as Sunday School but excellent words for the Lord’s Supper.
- Jesus Messiah by Daniel Carson; Ed Cash; Jesse Reeves; Chris Tomlin
- This melody took a little longer to learn but once learned is a big favorite.
- All I have is Christ by Jordan Kauflin
- God of Grace by Keith Getty & Jonathon Rea
- Here is Love by Steve and Vikki Cook/William Rees
