PI Quiz: Name That Song

    In past posts, we’ve discussed how music is very influential. Even without understanding the message of a song, many people hum tunes or sing parts of the lyrics.

    Songs create emotions, whether intentionally or unintentionally. For this reason, I believe we should listen to positive music with optimistic messages. Secular music today is very much tainted. Even in a positive song, messages promote bad behavior, such as promiscuity, drug use and excessive drinking.

    But there is music that a Christian girl can listen to that promotes all the values her faith has taught her: Christian music. I know many of you have your favorite songs and musicians, but would you recognize them by just a few lines of lyrics?

    Well, here’s your chance to test your knowledge of Christian music. All you have to do is name the song and the band or musician who sings it. Good luck!


    Your money your singleness marriage talent and time
    They were loaned to you to show the world that Christ is divine
    That’s why it’s Christ in my rhymes
    That’s why it’s Christ all the time
    My whole world is built around him He’s the life in my lines.


    There is a hope that you can hold on to.
    There is a life line come to the rescue,
    Just like a hand that’s waiting for you.
    And if you believe in this I promise that you won’t be alone.


    We are filled with expectation
    As we’re reaching for Your throne
    There’s an anthem, hear it rising
    With a shout we cry
    With a shout we cry.


    Yo faith ain’t never small that’s what brought you this far
    See you got your dreams and you got your prayers and you got yo God he gone take you there
    See everyone has a season and I believe this one’s yours
    Cuz you been workin’ waitin’ this what you been prayin’ for.


    God is not pleased man, it’s clear that His standards missed
    ‘Cause the world is running rampant with sin it’s an abandonment
    Man is feeling stranded, feeling hopeless since his banishment
    God is angry at the distortion and the mismanagement
    Evil is at work, but don’t be thinking He can’t handle it.


    Like the rising sun that shines
    Awake my soul, awake my soul and sing
    From the darkness comes a light
    Awake my soul, awake my soul and sing.


    Sings my soul of how
    Your love has set me free
    Sings my heart of how
    Your mercy rescued me
    Hear my cry of endless love
    To my Savior and to my King
    My heart is overwhelmed.


    Sometimes life don’t go the way you planned
    And we all have days when we just don’t understand
    Searching for meaning, it’s not always easy
    But your story’s not over, it’s still being told.


    If you gotta start somewhere why not here
    If you gotta start sometime why not now
    If we gotta start somewhere I say here
    If we gotta start sometime I say now
    Through the fog there is hope in the distance
    From cathedrals to third world missions
    Love will fall to the earth like a crashing wave.


    Well it’s only the dead that can live
    But still I wrestle with this
    To lose the pain that’s mine
    Seventy times seven times
    Cause Lord it doesn’t feel right
    For me to turn a blind eye
    Though I guess it’s not that much
    When I think of what You’ve done.

    How did you do?

    If you named between three and five correctly, I’d say you’re a pretty knowledgeable Christian music fan.

    If you named between five and eight correctly, then you’re definitely a Christian music expert.

    If you got all ten of them correct, well, I’d have to say you’re a Christian music genius.
