Some folks don’t like contemporary Christian music. They say it is not Godly. I do not agree, I believe there is a lot of contemporary music out today that is very worshipful and praiseworthy.

This new song by the contemporary Christian group called “Mikeschair” is one of those songs. So many verses came to mind when I first heard it that I thought it would be fun to write out the lyrics and match them up with Scripture. Here is a video for you to play while you read the rest of the article:

I could write a love song
Tell you what I think you want to hear
But it wouldn’t be good enough, no
Yeah, I could try so hard
To give it everything I’ve got
But I’m not ever gonna measure up

Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the Lord, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the Lord, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea. (Exodus 15:1)

The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him. (Psalms 28:7)

Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise. (Psalms 33:3)

And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord. (Psalms 40:3)

(Chorus)
All I can do is thank you for this life I never deserved
Wanna thank you for the grace I know I don’t have to earn
You love me, you love me, your mercy is proof
All I can do is say thank you
All I can do is say thank you

I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving. (Psalms 69:30)

O sing unto the Lord a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory. (Psalms 98:1)

That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works. (Psalms 26:7)

I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving. (Psalms 69:30)

And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing. (Psalms 107:22)

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. (Romans 12:1)

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; (Titus 3:5)

Let Israel hope in the Lord: for with the Lord there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption. (Psalms 130:7)

O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. (Psalms 136:1)

 For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the Lord endureth for ever. Praise ye the Lord. (Psalms 117:2)

 

CD25120: A Beautiful LifeA Beautiful Life
By Mikeschair

It would have been easy
But I’m glad you never walked away
Cause your love runs deep for me
And I see this beautiful world and it brings tears to my eyes
And I think it’s beautiful to be free

When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up. (Psalms 27:10)

… for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. (Hebrews 13:5)

All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. (John 6:37)

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. (John 5:24)

And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any [man] pluck them out of my hand. (John 10:28)

For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. (Hebrews 10:14)

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. (John 15:13)

And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. (1 John 4;16)

For love, for hope, for all the ways
Yeah, for everything you do
What else can I say but thank you
Thank you

Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; (Ephesians 5:20)

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. (James 1:17)

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. (Colossians 3:15)

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. (1 Thessalonians 5:18)
