Songs I like

I've been thinking a lot recently about songs I would like to see being used in church and I concluded recently, after compiling my list, they are all nice songs, but are all completely irrelevant to me and where I'm at.

I've found one though, and you might have heard it on the music player to the right of the screen, it's called 'Your Love is Strong' by Jon Foreman.

If you haven't done already, stop the music player, listen to the video below and read the words. You can also strum along if that takes your fancy.
