This page will periodically feature new worship songs of praise, thanksgiving, love, delight in God (as Father, Son and Holy Spirit) — songs to sing from the heart — and other related songs.



Whatever type of music you use for worship, be sure that it has relational clarity:

Low-key music should not dampen but deepen our thoughts and feelings to more intimate connections with God. Upbeat music should not deaden (numb with sensory stimulation) but enliven by stirring our hearts to open to the heart of God.



Songs for His glory!

Jesus promised not to leave his disciples alone as orphans, and so the Spirit was sent as his relational replacement to be with us forever (Jn 14:16-18). Therefore, the whole of God--Father, Son, and Spirit—is ongoingly present and involved with us as family (v.23). Yet, to experience being family together cannot happen with only God's intimate involvement, as if in a unilateral relationship; God's family requires the compatible relational response of our whole person, vulnerably from inner out, to the whole of God who is vulnerably involved with us for face-to-face, heart-to-heart relationship (Mt 15:8-9; Rom 8:15-16). Worship is our reciprocal relational response with nothing less and no substitutes. We hope all the songs here encourage you to worship the whole of God as the Father's daughters and sons, with Jesus, in the Spirit—intimately involved with God in likeness of how God is with us! And may God be blessed by your whole reciprocal relational response.

1. O God, our Father, —

      who is like You?

    No other father, no one!

    You alone distinguished,

      ever present, always

      involved in love.


2. You sent Your Son—

      in love for love,

    to be family as one.

    You alone illumined

      the family love needed

      to adopt us!


3. O God, our Father, —

      We are now Yours,

    Your family forever.

    You also discipline

      Your children as needed

      with family love!


(Repeat verses 1-3 with same tune)


Musical Transition:    Hmmmmm, indeed;  Oooooooh, yes!


(Hmmm is meditative, Ooooh more dynamic)


4. O God, our Father,

      Who is like You?

    No other parent, no one!

    Your love always faithful,

      Your family love truly

      we can count on!


5. Father, our Father,

      thank You, thank You

    for Your Son and family

    together in Your love,

      to be in Your likeness—

      together One!


6. O yes, our Father

      Praise You, praise You!

    Your family love is present,

      involved ever with us.

    So, “listen to My Son, —

      Share family love!”     


(Repeat verses 4-6 with 2nd tune)


(Note: after 2nd set is repeated, all the verses could be sung just once through before ending)



And now My children

   live family love,

   give family love,

for others to become—

in My family together

   O— O— O—  

   together as One!
