Welcome to Sojourn’s weekly worship music set list review & service recap. You’ll not only read a list of the songs we led, but also the readings and prayers from our liturgy. And if you’d like to see how we incorporate liturgical art and lead the responsive readings, watch the embedded video of our entire service, or check it out on the Sojourn New Albany Facebook page. Our liturgy is written by worship director Justin Shaffer in collaboration with worship directors at other Sojourn churches.

This Sunday Pastor Jonah Sage preached a sermon on parenting from 2 Corinthians 4:16-17 for Mother’s Day.  Learn more about Sojourn Community Church here.

Song Every Grain of Sand written by Bob Dylan.


Welcome to Sojourn and Happy Mother’s Day! We have so much to be thankful for today as God has called us to come to him by His Word and through his Spirit. Hear this call to worship from Psalm 95: 

Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord;

let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.

Let us come before him with thanksgiving

    and extol him with music and song.

Come, let us bow down in worship,

let us kneel before the Lord our Maker;

for he is our God

    and we are the people of his pasture,

    the flock under his care.

-Psalm 95:1-2,6-7

Song Praise To The Lord The Almighty


Song: May Your Power Rest on Me written by Joel Gerdis and Neil Degraide.


My soul continually remembers it and is bowed down within me.

But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope:

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;

his mercies never come to an end;

they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.”

-Lamentations 3:20-24

…as we have just read, the love that God our Father has for us never ends, and he has great faithfulness towards us, his children. As the giving baskets are passed around, let’s sing.

Song: God is Good written by Dustin Kensrue.


What a glorious truth that the God who created heaven and earth is also our friend in the person of Jesus!! …and friends live in peace – a profound, depth of peace made possible by Jesus. Take as much time as need need to get to know the brothers and sisters around you a bit better and make it a point to give thanks for the moms and ladies!



Song Thy Mercy, My God written by Sandra McCracken and John Stocker.

Song You Never Let Go written by Matt and Beth Redman.


May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

Go in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Peace be with you.

-Romans 15:13
