Songs for the Season

A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity of helping lead our congregation in worship through song. It's a rare treat now that I'm working with the kids in the back but seems to always be just what I need, right from practicing with the team during the week prior. This particular Sunday included several songs that all seemed to touch different bits of my heart, all in deep ways, all reminding me of the presence of God. These are the songs that spoke to me then and have been played over and over and over (and over!) since then.

Hosanna - Brooke Fraser

I see the king of glory
Coming down the clouds with fire
The whole earth shakes, the whole earth shakes
I see his love and mercy
Washing over all our sin
The people sing, the people sing

Hosanna, hosanna
Hosanna in the highest

I see a generation
Rising up to take the place
With selfless faith, with selfless faith
I see a new revival
Staring as we pray and seek
We're on our knees, we're on our knees

Heal my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like you have loved me
Break my heart for what is yours
Everything I am for your kingdom's cause
As I walk from earth into eternity

Our God Saves - Brenton Brown and Paul Baloche

In the name of the Father, in the name of the Son
In the name of the Spirit, Lord, we come
We're gathered to-gether to lift up Your Name
To call on our Savior, to fall on Your grace

To call on our Savior, to fall on Your grace

Hear the joyful sound of our offering
As Your saints bow down, as Your people sing
We will rise with You, lifted on Your wings
And the world will see that

Our God saves, our God saves
There is hope in Your name

Mourning turns to songs of praise
Our God saves, our God saves

worship music, especially when you get to play can be an amazing thing if you let it.
