At its best, Christian music draws from the word of God, the bible. But never before has there been a resource for Christ-followers to discover, reference and discuss the biblical inspiration behind song lyrics of their faith. Additionally, church music directors are often met with the challenge of finding praise and worship music that corresponds with what a minister will preach. Enter ScripturallySound.com.
Whether an individual is a fan of traditional hymns, gospel, southern gospel, CCM (contemporary), holy hip hop, Christian global music, or any song inspired by scripture regardless of music genre, the site and app’s search engine allows users to enter the song title or artist’s name and find lyrics that cite bible verses, which users can comment on or annotate. Users can also upload and hyperlink lyrics to bible passages for free. Paid subscribers can download lyric-inspired bible studies. These lessons, packed with commentary and questions, can be studied by the worship team in preparation for a service, or offered as a church program which can help build church attendance and membership. Given the bible’s repeating themes, lyrics are cross referenced with different bible passages, offering a wealth of wisdom.
The site and app’s search engine also works in reverse, allowing worship leaders, ministers, filmmakers, or dance choreographers to find biblically-based songs when they search by scripture or bible theme. This feature prevents the disconnect that churchgoers can experience when they engage in praise music, and then hear a sermon that has no relation to the song. Scripturally Sound solves this problem, providing suitable songs that support sermons, which creates a cohesive church-going experience. The transition from worship through music to sermon-listening is seamless. As an added bonus, the worship director gets exposed to unfamiliar songs and artists. Scripturally Sound also features blog posts; music, movie and video reviews; and interviews with artists who want to connect with their fans by providing more insight about their songwriting process and inspiration.
More than a lyric site, Scripturally Sound is a community, and bible memory tool that combines education and music worship, which we call “edu-worship.” Aiding Christians in their Godly walk, the platform is a digital solution to an ever increasing tech-savvy demographic that includes believers. The church can no longer afford to be left behind, relying on 20th century engagement methods. The song-to-scripture and scripture-to-song resource provides a robust interactive database, thus setting itself apart from competitors that only provide Christian lyrics or bible lessons with traditional education approaches. The result? A content, returning church-goer scripturally sound in their choice of worship music.
