The Scariest Song
Kids are sponges. They are soaking up everything around them, everything they see and hear. It's true! Adelle amazes me in that she can hear a song once or twice, or see a movie once or twice and then she can sing and quote them.
I have found the best theologically rich children's album ever. The Ology: Ancient Truths Ever New. It's by Sovereign Grace Kids, which is produced by Sovereign Grace Music.
I came across Sovereign Grace Music about a month or so ago. All of the songs I've heard by them so far are Biblically sound. They just put out a kids album back in October 2015. The titles on this album are: (Click on the links to hear a sample of each song)
All these songs are absolutely great!, but my favorite one is The Scariest Song. Here are the lyrics:
1. What's the scariest of woes?
Some say snakes and some say spiders
What strikes terror to your toes?
Some say floods and some say fires
Some say dentist drills or creepy clowns
Climbing up or falling down
But I'll tell you what the scariest around
Sin -- it's the scariest
Sin hurts everyone
Sin -- how it hides in us
It's all the wrong we've done
It separates us from our God
Behind these prison walls
Oh, sin is the scariest of all
2. What's the scariest to you?
Some say living, some say dying
What's the worst thing you can do?
Some say failing when they're trying
Some say getting germs or getting shots
Getting lost or getting caught
But I'll tell you what's
The worst thing we have got
Since Adam and since Eve
Sin's spread like a disease
We know that on our own we cannot beat it
But though it seeks to kill
Our God is stronger still
And only by His grace can we defeat it
I hope you enjoy this song and this album as much we are!
