Christian Songs About Family
Family is one of the foundations for all things and of course in Christian society as well. You made your first contact with your family; your first agent of socialization. Family holds one of the strongest bonds in history because they’re bound beyond blood but also in love and harmony.
The Bible emphasises greatly the need for families to remain together in unity amidst all things because there really is power in togetherness. Likewise, there are a lot of Christian songs about family out there and it’s my greatest wish that you find peace knowing the meanings of these uplifting songs and if you’d prefer, listening to them afterwards. Enjoy!
5 Christian Songs About Family
1. “God Gave Me You” by Dave Barnes
I connect personally with this song because it holds profound emotions. This song is similar to a psalm, and more particularly, a psalm of praise because it is about Dave Barnes giving thanks to God for a special person in his life who God has given him.
Dave sings in this song about how God has placed someone in his life who is there for him through the good times and the bad, who is there for him no matter what. Dave recounts he is feeling helpless or depressed, this person lends a helping hand and lifts him up, making him feel better again.
Music is fluid, so whilst this song can remind you of your siblings, it could mean parents to another person. In my opinion, the overarching message of this song is all about love and God.
God has blessed me with a wonderful family, especially my parents, who have never abandoned me but have instead shown me love and support throughout my life.
Indeed, I am grateful to God for this gift and grateful to Dave Barnes to have penned down such a magnificent piece. Trust me, you should listen to it! It’s infectious
2. “Always” by Seventh Day Slumber
Seventh Day Slumber is widely recognised as one of the most talented Christian rock bands currently active. Joseph Rojas, the lead vocalist of the band, has a powerful testimony about his transformation from a life of drug abuse and suicidal ideation to one in which he acknowledges Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.
The band writes songs that are centred around genuine issues that are happening in today’s society, such as substance misuse, alcoholism, and abuse of power.
This is one of the reasons why I adore them so much. Seventh Day Slumber is reaching out to people in an effort to tell them about Jesus. There are a lot of people in the world who are hurting, and Seventh Day Slumber is trying to connect with them. My all-time favourite song by them is going to be this one.
This song is dedicated to Joseph Rojas’s son, who is also the lead vocalist for the band. It is a lovely song about how much he loves his son and how he wants his son to never forget that Jesus is his strength.
The song comes in the form of advice from a father to his son – telling him to never forget Jesus and to rely on him no matter how things get by using encounters as a testimony to his son.
Indeed, this song is centred around Christian families; I believe it’s right for parents to constantly advise and put their children on the right path so they can in their own time, maintain a good relationship with God.
3. “Lead Me” by Sanctus Real
One of the most emotionally driven songs dedicated to dads is “Lead Me” by Sanctus Real. It depicts a guy pleading with God that he will not let his family down. It depicts a guy praying to God for guidance so that he can provide a loving example to his family.
Every time I listen to this song, I am inspired to be the best father that I can be, and I pray that you will recognise that our Heavenly Father is the best father any of us will ever have. He loves us without conditions and will never turn his back on us.
This is a wonderful prayer that should be recited every day by all fathers and wives. If we are only concerned with our own wants and requirements, it is possible that we will be blind to the wants of people who love us the most.
4. “Cinderella” by Stephen Curtis
In 2008, Grammy-winning Christian musician and composer Stephen Curtis Chapman composed a lovely song for his girls called “Cinderella.” I would like to tell you the tale of the song “Cinderella,” which includes love, loss, and redemption.
The Chapman family’s narrative begins in 2004 when Stephen and Mary Beth adopt a small girl named Maria from China. There were already three children in the family when the couple adopted two more from China.
Maria and her cherished older brother, Will, were victims of a terrible accident on May 21, 2008. Will accidentally ran over his kid sister and she died in the Nashville hospital.
Initially, Chapman created the song as a reminder to himself not to hasten his daughters’ passage into adulthood. After Maria’s passing, however, the song’s meaning changed. After reading this tragic tale of love and loss, I hope you will realise the importance of making the most of your relationships while you still can.
The end of your life on Earth is something you can never predict. Therefore, it’s important you cherish and create fond memories of your family until one of your loved ones will be called home by God.
5. “Homesick” by MercyMe
The song “Homesick” talks about how difficult it may be to be away from family. As our loved ones cross over into eternal and embrace Jesus, we are the ones who are left behind.
When someone we care about passes away, we often hear the comforting phrase that they are now in a better place and are no longer in pain. However, the pain is very real, and it will not go away completely until we are reunited with them in glory. This song captures the pain that grips us when we love someone we consider family.
