Glory To God Forever

Steve Fee | Vicky Beeching

Before the world was made
Before You spoke it to be
You were the King of kings
Yeah You were yeah You were
And now You’re reigning still
Enthroned above all things
Angels and saints cry out
We join them as we sing

Glory to God
Glory to God
Glory to God forever
Glory to God
Glory to God
Glory to God forever


Creator God You gave me breath
So I could praise
Your great and matchless name
All my days all my days
So let my whole life be
A blazing offering
A life that shouts and sings
The greatness of our King

Take my life and let it be
All for You and for Your glory
Take my life and let it be Yours
Take my life and let it be
All for You and for Your glory
Take my life and let it be Yours

10,000 Reasons

Jonas Myrin & Matt Redman

Bless the Lord O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

verse 1
The sun comes up it’s a new day dawning
It’s time to sing Your song again
Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing when the evening comes

Verse 2
You’re rich in love and You’re slow to anger
Your name is great and Your heart is kind
For all Your goodness I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find

Verse 3
And on that day when my strength is failing
The end draws near and my time has come
Still my soul will sing Your praise unending
Ten thousand years and then forevermore

Filled With Your Glory

In my heart in my heart
There’s a fire burning
A passion deep within my soul
Not slowing down not growing cold
An unquenchable flame
That keeps burning brighter
A love that’s blazing like the sun
For who You are and what You’ve done
And as the fire is raging on
So Your praise becomes my song

The whole earth is filled
With Your glory Lord
Angels and men adore
Creation longs for what’s in store
May You be honored and glorified
Exalted and lifted high
Here at Your feet I lay my life

From the ends of the earth
To the heights of heaven
Your glory Lord is far and wide
Through history You reign on high
From the depths of the sea
To the mountain’s summit
Your power Lord it knows no bounds
A higher love cannot be found
So let the universe proclaim
Your great power and Your great name

The whole earth is filled
With Your glory Lord
Mountains bow and oceans roar
Creation longs for what’s in store
May You be honored and glorified
Exalted and lifted high
Here at Your feet I lay my life

This is a song I heard first a few years back on Brand Heath’s album, What If We (great album!). The song then resurfaced on Christy Nockels album, Life Light Up. My first thought was – oh, cool, a Brandon Heath cover. After closer examination, I learned they co-write the song. This version is a bit of a hybrid of the two. We do Christy’s version for our congregation. Enjoy!

No Not One

No better word than from Your lips
No perfect life than what You lived
No greater gift no not one

No brighter star has ever shined
No better hope for all mankind
No higher mind no not one

No one has ever known
This kind of love You’ve shown

There has never been a greater love
Than Your Son
No not one
And there will never be a greater love
No not one
With His life You have forgiven us
Hope has come
Hope has come
And there will never be a greater love
No not one
No

No image true or sweeter frame
No simple word can match Your name
No greater fame no not one

No one has ever seen
The depth of Your majesty

CHORUS

No greater call
You gave us all a reason to live
No greater love
You gave us all a reason to give
No greater life
You gave us all a reason to shine
No greater love forever mine

This song ROCKS. It especially rocks to play. It especially rocks a lot to play with a full band. We’ve used this song a few times in our services. Casting Crowns has proved to be a game changer in Christian music. There songs are well delivered and usually carry a challenging message. Well done, Casting Crowns! It’s always a challenge to ‘bring it’ in a song like this when trying to pull it off on an acoustic guitar. I definitely gave it my all on this one. You’ll see that it’s a lot of words to get right!

What This World Needs

Hector Cervantes | Mark Hall

What this world needs
Is not another one hit wonder with an axe to grind
Another two bit politician peddling lies
Another three ring circus society
What this world needs
Is not another sign waving super saint
That’s better than you
Another ear pleasing candy man
Afraid of the truth
Another prophet in an Armani suit

What this world needs
Is a Savior who will rescue
A Spirit who will lead
A Father who will love them
In their time of need
A Savior who will rescue
A Spirit who will lead
A Father who will love
That’s what this world needs

What this world needs
Is for us to care more about the inside
Than the outside
Have we become so blind that we can’t see
God’s gotta change her heart
Before He changes her shirt
What this world needs
Is for us to stop hiding behind our relevance
Blending in so well
That people can’t see the difference
And it’s the difference that sets the world free

Jesus is our Savior
That’s what this world needs
Father’s arms around you
That’s what this world needs
That’s what this world needs

This song is one of hundreds that have come out of Hillsong Church’s worship universe. I first became familiar with Laura Story’s version of the song. Though the original is rock heavy, Laura Story’s version is in her typical melodic piano style. We use her version in our services with some elements of Hillsong’s heavier guitar driven version sprinkled in. For my acoustic arrangement, I tried to incorporate some of Laura’s piano melodies. Enjoy!

Mighty To Save

Ben Fielding | Reuben Morgan

Everyone needs compassion
Love that’s never failing
Let mercy fall on me
Everyone needs forgiveness
The kindness of a Saviour
The hope of nations

Saviour
He can move the mountains
My God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Forever
Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave

So take me as You find me
All my fears and failures
Fill my life again
I give my life to follow
Everything I believe in
Now I surrender

Shine your light
And let the whole world see
We’re singing for the glory
Of the risen King Jesus
Shine your light
And let the whole world see
We’re singing for the glory
Of the risen King

This song is an oldie but a goodie. I was introduced to Audio Adrenaline in my early high school years with their “Don’t Censor Me” album, which, in my opinion, is one of the best Christian albums ever made. Audio A actually came to my high school and did a show with Newsboys! This was obviously before they were both superstar Christian bands. A few albums into their career, Hands and Feet hit the scene. We have used this in our church services on occasion for the song’s strong message of obedience to being “sent” by God to serve the world and make disciples.

Hands And Feet

Bob Herdman | Charlie Peacock | Mark Stuart | Tyler Burkum | Will McGinniss

An image flashed across my TV screen
Another broken heart comes into view
I saw the pain and I turned my back
Why can’t I do the things I want to
I am willing yet I’m so afraid
You give me strength
When I say

I wanna be Your hands
I wanna be Your feet
I’ll go where You send me
I’ll go where You send me
I’ll be Your hands
I’ll be Your feet
I’ll go where You send me
I’ll go where You send me
And I’ll try yeah I’ll try
To touch the world like You touched my life
And I’ll find my way to be Your hands

I’ve abandoned ev’ry selfish thought
I’ve surrendered ev’rything I’ve got
You can have ev’rything I am
And perfect ev’rything I’m not
I am willing I’m not afraid
You give me strength
When I say

This is the last time
I turn my back on You
From now on I’ll go out
Send me where You want me to
I fin’lly have a mission
I promise I’ll complete
I don’t need excuses
When I am Your hands and feet
I am Your hands and feet

Hands (hands hands hands)
Feet (feet feet feet)
Go (go go go)
Go (go go)
(I wanna) (I’ll) be Your hands
I wanna be Your feet
I’ll go where You send me
I’ll go where You send me
I’ll be Your hands I’ll be Your feet
I’ll go where You send me
I’ll go where You send me
(REPEAT 2X)

Good old Chris Tomlin. I originally avoided this song to introduce to our congregation because it was kind of in a hard key to sing. However, I’ve found that Chris Tomlin writes music that is actually quite singable for most. I happen to have a higher voice, but not quite to the extent of Chris. I can usually manage to get most of his vocals down. This is a song currently on rotation at our gatherings.

Sing Sing Sing

Chris Tomlin | Daniel Carson | Jesse Reeves | Matt Gilder | Travis Nunn

Sing sing sing
And make music with the heavens
We will sing sing sing
Grateful that You hear us
When we shout Your praise
Lift high the name of Jesus

What’s not to love about You
Heaven and earth adore You
Kings and kingdoms bow down
Son of God You are the One
You are the One we’re living for

Sing sing sing
And make music with the heavens
We will sing sing sing
Grateful that You hear us
When we shout Your praise
Lift high the name of Jesus

You are the love that frees us
You are the light that leads us
Like a fire burning
Son of God You are the One
You are the One we’re living for

Sing sing sing
And make music with the heavens
We will sing sing sing
Grateful that You hear us
When we shout Your praise
Lift high the name of Jesus

Wow. To me, this song stands out among many we hear in mainstream Christian music. I recall this song being on Christian radio for just a short span of time. I came across it again while searching for a song that matched the certain topic of our Sunday morning sermon. Every time I listen to it, I feel compelled to adopt it as my own personal life-theme song. I have not come across a song that better encapsulates the Christian life – both the lyrics AND the song that carries them to us. Brandon Heath joins Leeland Mooring on this track which is a bonus for me because I’m a Brandon Heath fan. As a second bonus, when we presented this in our service, I sang it with my wife, Nicole. God willing, I’ll be able to do another version with us together. This version is transposed to a lower key to accommodate my voice. Leeland has a really high voice. Really high. One of my favorites!

Follow You

Leeland Mooring

You live among the least of these
The weary and the weak
And it would be a tragedy
For me to turn away

All my needs You have supplied
When I was dead You gave me life
So how could I not give it away so freely?
And I´ll

Follow You into the homes of the broken
Follow You into the world
Meet the needs for the poor and the needy God
Follow You into the world

Use my hands use my feet
To make Your kingdom come

To the corners of the earth
Until Your work is done

Faith without works is dead
On the cross Your blood was shed
So how could we not give it away so freely?

Follow You into the homes of the broken
Follow You into the world ooooh
Meet the needs for the poor and the needy God
Follow You into the world yeaah
(repeat)

And I give all myself, I give all myself
I give all myself to YOU
(repeat)
Yeaaaaah

Follow You into the homes of the broken
Follow You into the world (Follow YOU)
Meet the needs for the poor and the needy God
Follow You into the world

Follow You into the homes of the broken
Follow You into the world
Meet the needs for the poor and the needy God
