Voices only: French Christians sing songs of praise for the people of Russia

A few days before the #ParisAttacks, members of the Marseille Church of Christ shared their faith in St. Petersburg.

Our hearts break for Paris.

We mourn the loss of life and struggle to respond to the despicable terrorist attacks of Nov. 13. (Ed Stetzer offers advice in a blog post for Christianity Today, “A Christian Response to Global Terror and Radical Islam.”) 

In honor of the people of France, we offer these videos filmed earlier this month in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Singing in French and English, members of the Marseille Church of Christ presented hymns of praise for their Russian brothers and sisters at an event hosted by the Church of Christ on the Neva.


One of the songs (sung in English) is Vocal Union’s “He Gave His Life”

Love with great compassion
When love was not in fashion
Love showed great compassion again
Love in all creation
Love for every nation
Love for every man, woman, child
God so loved, gave his Son
Jesus loved, gave his life



Please feel free to post your prayers for France in the comments.
