Hymns are an intregal part of our worship. Colossians 3:16 exhorts us to encourage each other in psalms, hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in our hearts to the Lord. Our ministry's (Coffey Ministries) main focus is preaching the riches of the gospel of Christ to believers and unbelievers alike, and we also desire to use music as a means of drawing people's hearts to think on truth. As a result, God has burdened our hearts with a vision to take some of our favorite hymn texts that we've sung for years and reset them with new melodies, bringing a fresh perspective to known lyrics and helping us to internalize them even more than before.
As a church musician I have found in my own church that as Christians, it is very easy to sing a hymn that we've known all our lives and not even realize what we are singing. The Coffey Team did an awesome job at "renewing" these hymns so that we actually hear the words and not just a melody we have known since we were children. Great Work!! A must buy =) (Posted on 10/10/14)
