My Music

From 1985 until the present I’ve been involved with the music of Sovereign Grace Ministries as a songwriter, producer, arranger, and executive producer. Sovereign Grace is a family of churches passionate about the gospel of Jesus Christ. Since 1981, we’ve been devoted to planting and supporting local churches, and describe our doctrine as evangelical, Reformed, and continuationist.

The primary goal of Sovereign Grace Music is to produce and promote congregational songs that are theologically substantive, reflective of the gospel, and musically creative. We call it sound+doctrine. I have the joy of working with a team of songwriters that includes Mark Altrogge, Steve & Vikki Cook, as well as others. Over the years we’ve produced over 20 CDs, three songbooks, and over 300 songs. Our better known songs include I Stand in Awe (Mark Altrogge), I’m Forever Grateful (Mark Altrogge), Before the Throne of God Above (Vikki Cook), and I Will Glory in My Redeemer (Steve and Vikki Cook). Songs I’ve written include The Glory of the Cross, Let Your Kingdom Come, Grace Unmeasured, and O Great God.  We make all our guitar charts and lead sheets available for free download.

You can find out more about our music at the Sovereign Grace Music website or the Sovereign Grace store. You can also check us out on Facebook.

My other musical life was with the group GLAD. I was a member from 1972-1984, but continued to write and arrange for them until 2006. GLAD was started as a band, but became known as a vocal group due to the success of The Acappella Project, which was actually our 8th album. It’s available at GLAD’s website, or you can download the MP3s and listen to samples at Amazon.  My most well known GLAD song is probably In the First Light, which has also been recorded by Point of GraceTodd Agnew, and Travis Cottrell. Ironically, I originally wrote “In the First Light” for a local singer, Kathy Sinni, who wanted to sing an “all year round” Christmas song. Glad she asked, no pun intended.

    Many, if not all, of the music links do not work. Just so you know. Appreciate this blog and Sovereign Grace music.

      Thanks, Darrell. We’ll get them fixed.

    I’m probably one of the few 28 year olds that remember GLAD and grew up listening to The Acapella Project. LOVE IT. I even saw the group perform at University Baptist Church in Miami as a kid!

    Had a wonderful time at Worship God 15. Is there a place where I can find songs from the conference? I’m looking for This is our God?

    • Bob Kauflin August 4, 2015 at 6:12 PM #

      Scott, I’ll be posting the songs later this week. Thanks for coming to the conference!

    Can I ask a questiion about where the money goes when buying or listening your album of SGM?

    • Bob Kauflin August 4, 2015 at 6:14 PM #

      Sure, Matthew. The money goes to pay all the costs of making the album. Those include studio costs, engineers, designers, producers, musicians, support staff, transcribers, administration, manufacturing, promotion, and distribution.

        Nice to hear that, because I love your music and the lyrics of your music really biblical and touched my heart so much to the things I made in the past, epescailly the song All I have is Christ and Oh Deep Deep Love of Jesus. So different to other CCMs I am listening, may God continue use you to produce more songs all about God the Father and to His only Son Jesus Christ :D

    Words are so hard for me to express my love for this music.I will tell you these songs cause me to worship. A precious brother of yours who’s written and sang many of the songs sent me many free ones which I will always be greatful. These songs our so glorifying of our sovereign God so thank you very much.

    • Bob Kauflin February 9, 2016 at 3:33 PM #

      Gloria, thank you for your kind words. I’m glad our songs are serving you!

    Mr. Kauflin,

    I very much enjoyed your leading us in worship for T4G. My only frustration is that T4G only happens every 2 years. Thank you Thank you Thank you!

    Is there another T4G album coming out? If so, do you know whe and I can’t wait!

    God bless you!

    • Bob Kauflin June 2, 2016 at 10:36 AM #

      Thanks, Jason! It was a privilege to lead the music for T4G. Lord willing, we’ll have another album out late August or early September. Thanks for asking!

    I love your work with Glad. Do you own sole copyright on your arrangement of “Just As I Am?” Alas, I can’t seem to find sheet music for it anywhere!

  8. Debra Cabrera July 15, 2016 at 6:24 PM #

    Hi – I am so excited to have found your page. I picked up your book Worship Matters and am being blessed by it. We are a young Spanish church with a limited worship leader. I have been helping out and praying I can fill those shoes if ever needed – unless the Lord brings in a worship director, which we have been praying for. My question is – what Spanish resources websites, etc. would you recommend that would be able to help me in selecting good songs and with preparation. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Wow, not sure if you remember me from Living Word Community back in the Ron Klaus days.
    I have an old album of yours, Heroic Piano, and the tape just isn’t any good anymore. I tried to digitize it but it’s off. I did not see anything on ebay or amazon. Is there a place where that can be downloaded? I saw somewhere a heroic Piano .zip file but it’s not active anymore.

    • Bob Kauflin April 26, 2017 at 11:46 AM #

      Bruce, thanks for asking! I can’t find my copy, but might be able to find one when I get back to the office. I will let you know.

    Hello, Bob.

    I am not sure if you can help me with this, but I am dying to get a positive response from you. I have searched to the ends of the earth for the 1987 album “Arise – Windows On The World – Music For A People Of Destiny”, but have not found a single person or entity advertising it for sale. Please, how/where can I purchase the recording? Please help!

    • Bob Kauflin September 17, 2017 at 7:08 AM #

      Sam, great to hear from you. I don’t know about the “Windows of the World” title, but we have access to “Arise! Music for a People of Destiny” album. Email me at bob.@worshipmatters.com. Thanks!

      • Sam September 17, 2017 at 10:27 AM #

        Sir,

        The email I sent to bob.@worshipmatters.com bounced back; so, I sent another email to bob@worshipmatters.com. I hope you received it.

        Thank you,
        Sam

        • Bob Kauflin September 17, 2017 at 11:32 PM #

          That’s the right email address.

          • Sam September 17, 2017 at 11:56 PM #

            Thank you, Sir. I already emailed you this morning.
