    Observance of the Lord's Supper this Sunday. Pastor is looking for a song that talks about God's gift of salvation. I suggested "Grace Greater Than Our Sin" & "Amazing Grace." He said keep looking. So I look.

    Any ideas on any slow to moderate songs (no hymns) that talk about the gift of salvation?

    I don't know if this is what you're looking for, but the church of which I'm a member, Lighthouse Christian Fellowship in Antioch, TN, has her orchestra play a blended medley of "Nothing But The Blood," "There Is A Redeemer," "There Is None Like You," "Shine, Jesus, Shine," "Our God Reigns," "O For a Heart to Praise My God," and then tops it off with the classic from Handel's Messiah his adaptation of Revelation 5:12-13, "Worthy Is The Lamb That Was Slain!"

    No words are sung, but this arrangement, that I'm told was the creation of our own music director, pretty much tells the whole story of what communion is all about.

    We will do Nothing But the Blood by Chris Tomlin (CCLI song# 4329411), Jesus Lord of Heaven by Phil Wickham (song#4176073) and At the Cross/Love Ran Red (7017786) are three that we do for communion.

    Traditional options:
    Behold the Lamb (The Communion Song) by the Gettys
    Let Us Break Bread Together - Spiritual
    This is Our Freedom - Great hymn style, but newer song

    More Contemporary:
    Jesus, Messiah - Tomlin
    Remembrance - Maher and Redman

    At a recent communion service we sang "Nothing but the Blood," "There Is Power in the Blood," "Jesus Messiah" and "Because He Lives (Amen)" by Matt Maher. "Lamb of God" is an awesome hymn. I hope we can do it someday.
