#93 I’m gonna sing…

As promised last week, it’s Worship Songs this week… A few things to say before I begin though.

First, I’ve already blogged about what I consider to be the biggest worship song of the year: The Blessing. You can recap that here if you want but I won’t be going over old ground. Additionally, the songs I’ve picked are getting a lot of ‘air time’ in 2020 regardless of when they were released.

Secondly, the whole word ‘worship’. Some Christians get very thingy about the word worship. Main reason being that they’re concerned some people will think that the only time you are worshipping God is when you are singing.

I like to think my readers are smarter than that, so I’m not going to spend forever and a day explaining how that’s not the case. Worshipping God is anything that’s done with the desire to please him and make him look good. So I’m worshipping God right now…

Now that’s sorted, let’s get to 5 songs I’ve picked…for no particular reason other than the fact that they mean something to me…

Famous For (I believe) by Tauren Wells

Ahh, Tauren Wells, remember the days, not that long ago when we only got to hear you featured on a Toby Mac track as backing vocals. Now you’ve got your own label. Keep singing brother…

I have a hope found in Your name
I have a strength found in Your grace
Your faithfulness, my fortress, over and over

Christ be magnified by Cody Carnes

Were creation suddenly articulate
With a thousand tongues to lift one cry
Then from North to South and East to West
We’d hear Christ be magnified

This song just needs to be listened to in my opinion. There’s nothing to say other than what he sings…

God of Revival by Bethel Music

Plenty of Live Videos of this one… but have uncharacteristically gone for the Lyric Vid

Here’s the first of two from the Worship Powerhouse, Bethel Music.

Cause there’s no prison wall You can’t break through, no
Mountain You can’t move, all things are possible
There’s no broken body you can’t raise, no
Soul that You can’t save, all things are possible

No situation or person is beyond God. All things are possible.

Raise a Hallelujah by Bethel Music

I’m gonna sing, in the middle of the storm

Louder and louder, you’re gonna hear my praises roar

Up from the ashes, hope will arise

Death is defeated, the King is alive

It’s a powerful song. It reminds me of Job in the Bible. Even though bad things happened to him, he wouldn’t curse God, but kept a worshipful attitude.

The Father’s House by Cory Asbusy

Ooh, lay your burdens down
Ooh, here in the Father’s house
Check your shame at the door
‘Cause it ain’t welcome anymore
Ooh, you’re in the Father’s house

A fabulous concept: being in the Father’s House. Being with God.

That idea of being with God might be something that at first jars with people, but the song is nothing like that.

The lyrics create such a sense of peace and welcome. It doesn’t matter who you are, or how you feel about yourself.

Check your shame at the door
‘Cause it ain’t welcome anymore
Ooh, you’re in the Father’s house

Just gotta step through the door.

Yours in the Father’s House,

Alison
