A.M. SET LIST

P.M. SET LIST

Yesterday was a big day in which I led worship at both our morning and night services. One highlight was introducing the song Glory To God Forever in our evening service. This song was written by Steve Fee and Vicky Beeching and has a very singable chorus and a bridge that contains lyrics of sacrifice and offering:

“Take my life and let it be

All for You and for Your glory

Take my life and let it be Yours”

It was a fantastic day of worship and it was again a genuine privilege to lead our community in this way. In the morning we used Brenton Brown and Brian Doerksen’s song Hallelujah (Your Love Is Amazing) for the first time in ages and I was almost surprised at how fresh this song felt. I love the story behind the writing of this song. Brenton Brown was visiting Brian Doerksen to write some tunes and was busy writing whilst Brian had his hands full looking after his kids. The story goes that Brenton came up to Brian with the lyrics and tune to the first verse at a time where Brian had his hands full with his children. Brenton asked Brian if he had any ideas for a chorus and possibly with some exasperation Brian exclaimed: “Hallelujah…Hallelujah…Hallelujah…Your love makes me sing!!!” Apparently Brenton looked at him and said something like  “No…surely not! It can’t be that easy!” And that is the song as we sing it!!!

Anyway I will keep these posts coming when I lead worship.

God bless!!





Set List 28th February Morning Service

28 02 2010

This week I discovered the screen image saver on my iPhone, so I thought I would use it to upload my set list each time I lead worship at church. So here it is!!!

Not too much else to say except that in this service we introduced Here Is Love which is a hymn from the Welsh Revival of 1904/05. Inspiration for this arrangement comes from recent recordings by Matt Redman (Hymns Ancient & Modern)and Brian Johnson (Bethel Live). For a song that is over 100 years old, it has such wonderful lyrics and tells such an amazing story of God’s love and mercy!!! The other songs have become pretty standard for our church community. Bless His Name by Tony Sanchez (popularised by Jeremy Riddle’s recordings), Love The Lord by Lincoln Brewster (which we use as a Kids Song with actions) and Everlasting God by Brenton Brown.

Anyway I will try to post one of these each time I lead. feel free to comment on these songs and songs that you enjoy or are using at your church.
