S.A.N.S. Episode 358: Sound of Melodies

Today’s artist is a perfect example of the expression “you shouldn’t judge a song by its title.” After stumbling upon Sound of Melodies by Leeland, my initial thought was “what a stupid song title.” However, after listening to the lyrics and watching the video, I was touched by both. The Sound of Melodies is merely a classification of any Christian song that speaks to the redeeming power of Jesus, who died while we were still sinners, Romans 5:8.

For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things [n]impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers, 39 Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord, Romans 8:38-39.

Whenever a lost sheep is found or when a prodigal comes to their senses, songs of praise, redemption and thanksgiving are lifted up to God. Rather than single out one specific worship song, Leeland refers to these as the sound of melodies. This concept is mentioned by the apostle Paul in Colossians 3:12-16 as he encourages first century followers of Jesus to sing hymns and songs of praise every day, not just on Sunday. May the lyrics of today’s song inspire you listen to Christian music every day of the year.
