â€œThe lyrics onÂ Sing the Bible Volume 3Â come straight from Scripture, and focus on the life, words, and work of our Lord Jesus, the Savior of the world,â€ explains Goodgame. â€œEleven of the songs draw from His spoken words, while the other verses point to His love, His lordship, and how we live in Him. He is the Vine, we are the branches! Let us be transformed by His purpose. I pray these verses take root in all of us as they point to the nourishment that only the Holy Spirit can provide.â€Â Â
