The Words We Sing

Bringing Meaning to Worship
  • By Nan C. Allen
Though there are various genres of musiccountry, rap, rock, and pop, to name a few. The Christian music genre is the only genre defined by its lyric. But, how understanding are we as we write, sing, and lead others in worship with these words?

The Words We Sing is an exploration of 49 words and phrases found in both modern worship songs and hymns written years, even centuries, ago. With insight and inspiration, author Nan Corbitt Allen identifies the definition, biblical context, and historical background that make each term come to life with power and meaning. Through Allen's refreshing take on these lyrics, readers will find themselves immersed in the struggles and stories behind the words we sing.

Abba, Days of Elijah, Jehovah / Yahweh, Omnipotent,

Adonai / Lord, Diadem, Jerusalem / New Jerusalem, Peace

Alleluia / Hallelujah, Divine and may others.
