Songs for the church.

New Release His Glory & My Good

Kings throughout history have demanded praise and glory from their people. Whether this made life any better for the king’s subjects was very often irrelevant. If the palace was happy, that was all that mattered.

But our God is not like these earthly kings. In God’s infinite kindness, He has made it so that His glorification is the ultimate good of His people. To put it another way, we are created to glorify Him, and only in doing this shall we be truly satisfied. Importantly, this means that God does not force us to choose between glorifying Him on the one hand and ensuring our own good on the other: these things are one and the same. And so the Christian is empowered to wholeheartedly seek the glorification of God, knowing that this is very same path which leads to our everlasting joy.

We wanted to write a song that spoke to this stunning truth. We pray that this song will give you the words to take this truth both deep into your hearts and to sing it out loud.

Latest EP  Simple Songs For Young & Old

We are overjoyed to share Simple Songs for Young and Old with you!

These are not songs only for children or only for adults. They are written to resource adults and children, singing together. There is something about the simplicity and the power of a song like Jesus Loves Me this I Know that resonates very deeply in the hearts of people of all ages.

And so we considered the kinds of things that both children and adults need to hear: God is big, God is strong, God is kind, Jesus is with us, the Bible will guide us, the Spirit is real, Heaven is forever, the Christian is safe, the Christian may suffer, the Christian is loved, the church is powerful, the songs of the faithful change lives, and more and more and more. We have tried to be especially clear with our lyrics. We have tried to pack more into less. We have tried to get right down to the truth of the matter. We have prayed over and over for God’s inspiration.

We are thrilled to be able to offer these five songs and pray they might be a blessing in churches, Sunday schools, morning breakfasts, car rides to school and work, by the bedside, and in private prayer.

Please join us in praying that God will take the songs out to those who need them.

Our vision is to write songs with biblically rich lyrics and simple melodies for the Christian church to sing. To help with this, we’ve made our lyrics and music charts accessible to everyone, free of charge.

CityAlight is a ministry of St Paul’s Castle Hill, part of the Anglican Diocese of Sydney.

“You are the light of the world. A town on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on a stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Matthew 5:14-16 NIV
