New Song Saturday: Be Still

Posted 1 year ago

“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” Psalm 46:10 While this song isn't completely "new" - we recorded it a while back as part of our Fall Jam 2017 session - we felt that it was a good time to re-record it in a totally new style. This song is taken heavily from Psalm 46 and Revelation 1:10 - 17. Psalm 46... Read More

"I will sing to the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live." Psalm 104:33 Continuing with our “Doxology” theme, we have another rendition of this classic hymn for this week’s New Song Saturday. There are days when I get homesick. Not for the house I grew up in, or my hometown (though that happens too), but for a home I haven’t seen yet. There is a call... Read More

"Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises. For God is the King of all the earth; sing to him a psalm of praise." Psalm 47:6 - 7 We recently received a request for our own version of the Doxology, and we decided to run with the idea! So for the next few weeks we will be trying out different renditions of the hymn, which is also known as "Praise Go... Read More

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Heb... Read More

New songs and a new feature

Posted 4 years ago

In John 4:24, Jesus says that those who worship God must worship Him in spirit and in truth. We aim to create music that expresses a passion for God, and is also thoroughly grounded in the truth of scripture. We also feel that while worshipping God through music, it's very important to understand what you're singing. With this in mind, we have added a new feature to the Open Skies Praise web... Read More
