These are the songs that remind us of the powerful God we serve.
When we sing about God's grace and we believe the truth deep in our hearts, it affects our lives. We live with more compassion. We extend more mercy. We feel more empathy. This is why worship songs about grace and mercy are so important to the church. Every day and every week, through song and word, we must remind ourselves about the nature of God who is full of grace. What we receive from God, we extend to others. This is the full cycle of worship.

Our generations are the testimony of our faith; constant and connected to the guidance of Him. Here is a list of songs focusing on the generations of God’s people.
