Cornerstone SongsSongs are literally putting words in people’s mouths to express, understand and disciple their hearts in who God is, what He’s done, who we are and how we respond. Therefore we desire for all of the songs we lead at Cornerstone to be Scripturally true and rich, and help us articulate the Gospel more fully in daily life. Hear the stories, and Scripture that inspired our original songs, the reasons and the heart behind songs we’ve been singing recently, and work through some of the archaic language in the hymns that we love.

 

New Song: Grace Alone

There are so many good worship songs available these days but there are fewer great worship songs available. And every once in a while a great song appears that perfectly articulates the weight of the Gospel who Jesus is, what He has done, and who we are. Those are the type of songs we want to sing, pray and live at Cornerstone Church. Left to our own devices, we never c...

New Song: Build My Life

Every September we return to three defining characteristics of Cornerstone Church: Gospel Centred, Marked by Grace and On Mission. More than words these realities shape us gathered, equally as much when we scatter returning to work, school, home, university, friends, and family. Gospel Centred, Marked By Grace and On Mission become the overflow for each believer whose f...

New Song: Your Grace

'Undeserved favour, in the face of deserved wrath' is my favourite description of grace. And as our leaders have often reminded us, 'grace is not a thing but the person of Jesus Christ.' It is grace that saves us, but it is also grace that keeps us, sustains us, and enables us to live as we are called. We have seen during our time in 1 John, to walk in the light (1:7), o...

New Song: Jesus, I Am Resting

Scripture tells us to 'sing to the LORD a new song (Ps 96:1).' And we love to sing new songs at Cornerstone Church, but from time to time, a new song to our congregation was originally a new song to a congregation a century or so ago. While studying 1 John, we will grow in correct doctrine, knowing joy, living holy lives and be assured of our salvation and that comes from...

New Song: Always

Steve said on Sunday, 'We are studying 1 John because we want to have correct doctrine, know joy, to live holy lives, and be assured our salvation.' And it is with that same kind of intentionality that we want to introduce the songs we sing at Cornerstone Church. We want songs which combat lies with the truth of God's Word, remind us of who He is and what He has done, anch...

New Song: Be Enthroned

As we begin a new series in Genesis we will see how this creation narrative is truly the Gospel in the Beginning. God's plan of redemption and rescue for His people, set in motion before He laid the foundations of the earth. God, dwelling in perfect unity, harmony, and worship did not create due to some cosmic deficiency in Himself, but out of the overflow of His characte...

New Song: Power To Redeem

There are many different elements involved in the songs that we choose at Cornerstone Church including: that they put Jesus on display, and that they help us understand and respond to the Word of God as we are being taught on a Sunday morning and are sent out on mission together as God's people. So as a worship leader, what do we do when we come up against a sermon series ...

New Song: The Wondrous Cross

We began a new series in the book of Colossians this past week, as Paul walked us through an overview of the book what we continued to see is the preeminence of Christ in all things. Greater than our thoughts, greater than our feelings, greater than our circumstances Christ has made peace by the blood of His cross (Col 1:20). There is a greater reality at work in the live...

New Song: Jesus!

Charles Spurgeon said 'The most important daily habit we can possess is to remind ourselves of the Gospel.' I love songs that help us to see, remember, and respond to the whole scope of the Gospel creation, fall, redemption, restoration, glorification all told in three minutes! The song 'Jesus!' by Citizens and Saints is just that type of song In the first two verses we...

New Song: Lord, I Need You

The songs we sing on Sunday are not just a mix of word and melody they are prayers. They help wrap understanding around truth that needs to cement deeply in our hearts, minds, lips and lives. One of the reasons that the prayer song we introduced on Sunday resonates so much is that it is a prayer we can be declared at any season of our soul it is both comforting and confr...
