Bible Verses linked to Worship Songs

Bible Verses linked to Worship Songs

As a church we are currently following a series of short video messages by Ian, “How to Walk in the Wilderness.” The theme for Week 2 is “Sing Praise Over Despair.” Ian’s video message can be found here: Sing Praise Over Despair.

Ian will be giving a Bible verse, each day to accompany the weekly theme.

This week (as our theme is “Sing Praise Over Despair”) there will also be links with the daily Bible verse to worship songs. The songs will be either a contemporary song or a traditional hymn, for you to listen to depending upon your musical preferences.


Palm Sunday 5th April 2020

Today’s verse (perhaps fitting for Palm Sunday) to help you sing praise over despair is Psalm 42 v.4:

“These things I remember,

as I pour out my soul:

how I went with the throng,

and led them in procession to the house of God,

with glad shouts and songs of thanksgiving,

a multitude keeping festival.”

Psalm 42 v.4


“Do It Again” – Michael W. Smith | AWAKEN: The Surrounded Experience
