The 5-man Contemporary Christian indie rock band MercyMe released the song Greater in 2014 on their Welcome to the New album. They have had 13 songs at the top of the Christian Contemporary Billboard, have won many awards and been Grammy-nominated numerous times. They have released 18 albums and have been praising God and sharing His word since 1994. I love this piece for our Youth Choir because it allows us to dig deeper into praise worship. The lyrics in the piece are particularly poignant and encouraging for our youth who struggle with fitting in and feeling like they are enough, reminding us that “He calls [us] redeemed, when others say [we’ll] never be enough. And greater is the One living inside of [us] than he who is living in the world.” This is a song that you’ll be humming for days, that will lift you up and bring you closer to understanding His love for us—give it a listen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXI0B4iMLuU
