Editor’s note: this week our quartet of writers will introduce a song written in the last three years that we should be singing (if we’re not already) in the church…today is “Christ is Able” by Tommy Walker and Mike Harland.
Many people in churches today are searching for modern hymns that are Biblically founded and fresh to the ear – “Christ is Able” is that song!
Available in choir anthem, congregation and praise band arrangements, Red Tie Music has made this new song easily accessible to all sizes of churches.
Here are the lyrics: “Come ye sinners, poor and needy
Come ye wounded, weak and worn
There’s a harbor for the broken
Where the hopeless are reborn
Come ye lost, afraid, forgotten
Let your wondering souls find rest
At your hearts door He is knocking
For you His precious blood was shed
He is able, He is able
Christ is able, still to save
Come ye sinners, poor and needy
Sing to Him our song of praise
Come ye ransomed and forgiven
Come ye rescued from the grave
Rise and worship Christ our Savior
For the glory of His Name!
In the stillness of the morning
In the quiet of the dawn
Praise will rise as darkness scatters
And the song goes on and on!”
The choral anthem can be purchased from LifeWay at this link (which also includes a listening sample).
Or choir and congregation really enjoys this song and it has become a standard in our church.
