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 probably not one many people are familiar with.  It’s from Matt Redman and one we’ve used in our worship services for special occasions.  Matt Redman definitely brings a different creative and cultural angle to Christian music.




Take It To The Streets

Matt Redman

I am not a stranger to mercy, for you found me,
Wrapped your truth around me.
I am not a stranger to grace
I have seen it in Your face.
I am not a stranger to kindness
We´re the broken with Your life inside us
You have brought Your gospel to me
And I breathe it every day

How did I become Your miracle?
Now to take Your truth and tell the world

I´m gonna take it to the streets,
I´m gonna to sing it ´til we meet.
Heaven is open,
Come on all the earth rejoice.
I´m going to take it to the streets,
Wake up the dead heart from its sleep.
Heaven is open,
Now´s the time to raise our voice.

I will tell the world of this mercy, for You found me,
Wrapped Your truth around me.
I will tell the world of this grace
I have seen it at Your cross.
I will tell the world of this kindness
We´re the broken with Your life inside us.
You have brought Your gospel to me;
Help me live it every day.

How did we become Your miracles?
Now to take Your truth and tell the world.

I´m gonna take it to the streets,
I´m gonna to sing it ´til we meet.
Heaven is open,
Come on all the earth rejoice.
I´m going to take it to the streets,
Wake up the dead heart from its sleep.
Heaven is open,
Now´s the time to raise our voice.
