New songs for worship, rich in Christian theology. Contemporary hymns, psalms, songs of lament and praise written and performed by members of the Louisville, KY-based Sojourn Community.
Since our inception in 2000, Sojourn has embraced the arts and provided a home for musicians, writers, film-makers and artists of all stripes. This site features the original music of Sojourn's worship band, indigenous music birthed in community and drawing from many music traditions -- music for congregational singing and personal contemplation, for lament and struggle, for discovery and joy, for praise and dialogue with our great God.
Our hope and desire for the universal body of Christ is a reinvigorated emphasis on music for worship and a return to the importance in which music was held by the people of God, who strove to create theologically-sound, thought-provoking and musically compelling songs to (and about) our Lord. To this end, we pray that Christians and churches everywhere will benefit from these songs, but also that they will "go and do the same," learning the value of nurturing and raising up songwriters and musicians to create music for their own communities, glorifying God out of their own culture and speaking through the experiences of their own congregation.
