Announcing Expository Songs

I’m excited to announce the launch of Expository Songs. It highlights songs where the main idea of a passage of Scripture is also the main idea of a song.

Since so many of these songs are long-forgotten, I plan to include all available links to lyrics, sheet music, and YouTube videos.

Several years ago, I realized that the songs I was most passionate about were deeply rooted in Scripture—and that this was also the defining characteristic of the songs of my three all-time favorite songwriters (John Newton, Dianne Wilkinson, and Michael Card).

The process of finding and organizing these songs started right here on this website, in November 2011, with a series I prepared for Southern Gospel Journal, Songs from the Books of the Bible. I’m excited to start sharing this research!
