The Playlist #2: The Word of God

I’m sure most all of us would agree that one of the reasons we love southern gospel music is because of the sound Biblical basis of the lyrics.  Not only are southern gospel songs rooted in the Word of God, but many songs treat the Word itself as a lyrical subject.  The Bible is the foundation for all that Christians believe, so it’s certainly a worthy topic for a song.  Here is a playlist of some of my favorite songs of the Word.


  1. God’s Word, Kingdom Heirs, Give Me the Mountain
  2. His Life Is an Open Book, Lewis Family, 50th Anniversary Celebration
  3. Living in His Word, Hinsons, Generations
  4. Do It by the Book, Gold City, Windows of Home
  5. Read the Book, Cathedrals, Climbing Higher & Higher
  6. Lord, Your Word Is Still True, Kingdom Heirs, True to the Call
  7. If God Said It, I Believe It, Mark Trammell Trio, Always Have a Song
  8. Blessed Old Book, Rochesters, Heritage
  9. God Made It, Kingdom Heirs, City of Light
  10. Trust the Truth, Poet Voices, Trust the Truth
  11. You Cannot Improve on the Truth, Perrys, Almost Morning
  12. According to the Scriptures, Mark Trammell Trio, Beside Still Waters
  13. It Means Just What It Says, Greater Vision, Everyday People
  14. God’s Word Will Stand, Ivan Parker, It’s True
  15. You’ve Got His Word, Brian Free & Assurance, 4 God So Loved
  16. The Word, Kingsmen, When God Ran
  17. The Bible Told Me So, Statesmen, The Bible Told Me So
  18. On the Authority, Gaither Vocal Band, I Do Believe
  19. Every Word Is True, Squire Parsons, Rise & Shine!
  20. Take a Look in the Book, Blackwood Brothers, The Blackwood Brothers
  21. I Think I’ll Read It Again, Gold City, I Think I’ll Read It Again
  22. Listen to the Word of God, Lonesome River Band, Carrying the Tradition
  23. Biblically Correct, Kingdom Heirs, When You Look at Me

  1. Actually, a couple CCM songs came to mind. First, Sara Groves’ “The Word”:

    Second, a Getty song called “Every Promise of Your Word”:

    And of course, the Rich Mullins classic “Creed”:

    I believe what I believe
    It’s what makes me what I am
    I did not make it, no it is making me
    It is the very truth of God
    And not the invention of any man

    I thought of a few :

    Doing It By The Book -The Whites
    The Old Love letter – McKameys
    My Love Letters To You -Rambos
    Family Bible – George Jones
    Let Your Fingers Do The Walking Through The Pages Of God’s Word -can’t remember who did it

    1. Seems like I remember seeing a video of Rusty Goodman singing “Let Your Fingers Do the Walking,” with Tim Riley.

    Black & White – Singing Americans. It’s not dripping with depth, but it’s snappy and it’s an 80s classic
    Another that gets stuck in my head is off of the first Kirk Talley solo project, entitled, “The Word Says”.

    “The Price of a Book” by the Rochesters is a powerful song that asks us the question… “Why can’t we stand up for what they died for? Their every dream we take for granted every day…”

    Also, Ethan Whisnant has one on he and Austin’s new cd titled, “The Book” that says in the chorus… “Every phrase leads me straight to Jesus, Lord, I thank you for the Book…”

    Both of these are great songs! : )
