SONGS FROM PSALMS

Lord, you are my wisdom,
Lord I choose your way
Though my heart and flesh fail,
you will be my strength
Take me into glory, till then I will say,
“Lord I love you, Lord I want you,
help me want you more each day”
– Psalm 73 (adapted)

We have been praying the Psalms and singing the Psalms as a regular rhythm in our weekly gatherings. We’re so excited to announce that now we can listen and sing along to the Psalms with the new recording, Songs from Psalms by Geoff & Chelsea Grant and the Northpoint Worship Ministry!

The album is available on all major streaming platforms.

Celebrating the release, we will be gathering in Heritage Hall TONIGHT, March 31, at 6:00 p.m., for A Night of Psalms. Coffee and desserts will be served for a coffee house concert of Songs from Psalms, featuring a brand new song composed for the evening! Physical CDs and download cards will be available for purchase; all proceeds will go toward the Northpoint Worship Ministry.

Songs Northpoint Sings

By Geoff Grant
Northpoint’s Director of Worship Arts 

From time to time, I receive questions about the songs we sing together on Sunday mornings. At Northpoint, we sing a wealth of themes and types of songs. We sing songs composed hundreds of years ago and songs composed days ago.

We try to choose songs that emphasize different aspects of God’s redemptive story. Broadly, our songs aim to emphasize:

God’s character and perfect creation –

We sing songs that remind us who God is. He is holy and loving, powerful, and just. He created all in existence, and he is worthy of our affection and esteem.

Holy, holy, holy
Lord, God Almighty
Early in the morning
Our song shall rise to Thee
Holy, holy, holy
Merciful and mighty
God in three persons
Blessed Trinity

Our fallenness and need for redemption –

We sing songs that give us space to confess our sin to God. This is the appropriate response to God’s holiness. When we see his perfection, we are disturbed by our imperfection. We recognize the brokenness of God’s creation and long for its redemption. We confess our sins, and he is faithful and just to forgive. (1 John 1:9)

Lord, I believe the hold of sin is strong
And stout its heart to pluck me from Thy love
But stronger is thy grace, oh raise me up
Spirit help my unbelief

Our redemption in Christ –

We sing songs that ground our identity and hope in the perfection, sacrifice, and Lordship of Christ. The ailment of sin plagues the heart of man, and Christ is the only remedy. We sing songs that exalt him as Lord and recognize him as our redemption.

Where sin runs deep Your grace is more
Where grace is found is where You are
And where You are, Lord, I am free
Holiness is Christ in me

Our future hope and the coming kingdom –

We sing songs that call to mind our future hope in Christ. We sing songs that thank God for the eternity we will spend with him. This is to remind us that our present trials are to be redeemed by God’s eternal reign, and we are ultimately citizens of his eternal kingdom.

We will feast in the house of Zion
We will sing with our hearts restored
He has done great things, we will say together
We will feast and weep no more

All of the songs we sing together are available to stream and listen to on our Songs Northpoint Sings playlists. You can subscribe to these playlists; we update them regularly with the songs we sing together in worship. You can find them here:

Our heart behind doing this is to give everyone the opportunity to familiarize themselves with songs we sing, to better participate with the congregation, and also to seek out specific songs that were especially encouraging and useful.

I am so encouraged by the singing of the church when we gather on Sundays. May the Spirit of God continue to shape us in the image of Christ—and may we unify our hearts to that end as we gather in corporate worship.

In Him,
