“Even the Angels” Worship Song About God’s Incredible Kindness

Here’s a worship song I wrote recently, “Even the Angels,” about God’s incredible kindness to us who believe in Jesus Christ. It is arranged and sung by my son-in-law, Caleb Murphy. You can listen to it and download it here on Soundcloud. There’s a link for a chord/lyric PDF at the bottom. Thanks for checking it out!

Even the Angels

See what kind of love the Father’s given us
That we should be called children of God
See what kind of mercy he’s poured out on us
That we can say our Father is God
We’re no longer strangers,
And we’re no longer outcasts

And even the angels can’t call you Father
Even the angels aren’t sons and daughters
So why do we know such love
Such love, such love
Such love, such love
Such love

See what kind of honor God has heaped on us
To make such sinners children of God
See what kind of glory God has set on us
The lowly are now children of God
We’re no longer strangers, and we’re no longer outcasts


We are God’s beloved children now
And what we’ll be has not yet come
But when our king appears we’ll be like him
Shining like, shining like the sun
