Archives For Hymn

 

Welcome back to one of the original Text-Fessionals. woot!.
Pretty great sunday this week. I opened with Raise up the Crown (a hail the power) from the Passion Hymns CD. I love this re-arrangemen. If you don’t have that CD and you have been living under a rock on a remote island. Find yourself a boat and get thee to your nearest CD store now!.

We did the Gloria this week in D and went right into More than Ever. Robbie Reider is one of my favorite worship leaders and this song is brilliant. We have been practicing it for a year now and never introduced it because of the tons of other new stuff to do. This week we did it and I think the congregation really loved it. It seemed a little forced to go into In Christ alone next. There are some limitations when you are lacking a band like we are right now. Ending a song doesnt feel like an actual ending so to cut right into a hymn was a little wierd. The lyrics however are awesome.
We ended the praise with Vicky beeching’s Above all Else. great lyrics and just a real nice slow song. It really makes you focus on Christ.

Jesus, my passion in life is to know You
May all other goals bow down toThis journey of loving You more
Jesus, You’ve showered Your goodness on me
Given Your gifts so freely
But there’s one thing I’m longing for
Hear my heart’s cry
And my prayer for this life

Above all else
Give me Yourself

During offering I did my communion Song. I ended up doing it in F#. I love this song. gets me ever time. It is Christ talking to us. Telling us that going to the cross was for us because we are His children made in Him.

You are a child of God
fearfully and wondrously made
holy anointed one
You were created in me
nothing compares to My love

We did a couple of oldies for communion. I could sing and Better is one day. I still love those songs. Classics.
And then we ended repeating More Than Ever.

All in all a great service. the sermon was on Jonah and will be the next few weeks. This week was taking notice of the storms in our life.

I will see you back next week. CAIO!

How was your sunday?

ok so normally I do the Text-Fessional within the set list post. Those days are over folks. Now I do this because I don’t have a video camera, but I am thinking of going to Audio-Fessionals. That would put me on a different list though.

Alright enough of that…So last week I had a discussion with the pastor about our services and a bunch of visitors commented that the service was too long. Let me preface by saying that almost 90% of the church goers here are roman catholic and are very used to 1 hour services. Ours ran around 1 hour 45 min. Not too long, but longer then Roman catholic service. We do readings and creed, communion, and liturgy…along with that tons of music that is woven into the service from modern to old to liturgical. That is our church identity. We call it 3 streams blended worship. My definition of blended worship is not mixing hymns with matt redman. It is mixing the old with the new. Our service is framed around the Lords table and everything culminates at communion.

The 3 streams are Charismatic (moving in the spirit…rock n roll, tongues, etc…), Sacramental (Communion etc…), and evangelical (Bible based… gotta love the word!)

So with that said we had to shorten the service a little without messing with the integrity of what we are. So I did a poll and tons of people helped me out. we shortened the sermon to 30 min and moved a little aroung and ended the service in 1.5 hours. BRILLIANT! it worked and nobody was the wiser.

Uh…moving on to the music..

Great set this week..opened with I know that my redeemer lives. Great hymn…Mark Heard did a great version of it on the at the foot of the cross CD’s from the choir.

Went into the gloria…dropped the key from D to C..

Then we broke the fast song at the start mold and went into classic rushing Wind…it was a great song to open the praise set…prepare our heart…

“Jesus Your the one Who set my spirit free”

And then right into O Praise him chorus…and the rest of the song…I love this song its a real call to worship and and illustrates us singing with all of creation and the angels above.

Jumped into You amaze me…ok this song is from Michael Neale…I was first introduced to this at the integrity worship conference a few months ago and I can’t stop listening to it. This song just tugs at my spirit. It was amazing.

“You amaze me, You amaze me…and I’m overwhelmed by Your great love and mercy”

that line…wow He is amazing.. and unfathomable.

We did My new song that I co-wrote with my dad More of You. This song has really become a favorite with our church. People come up to me every week because the words just get into there sprirt.

“Take the world, give me You….Take my Heart Lord and make it new”

Communion we did the sanctus and mystery of faith (Liturgical music) ..And then into one of the best cross songs ever Sweetly Broken. Brilliant song and really makes you focus and tune into what Christ did for us. Then into super slow version of bless his name…and when communion ended I sped it up to normal tempo and volume. The 2 songs were perfect….thank you for the cross…thanks you for the blood….and then into…come sing for joy and bless his name.

Then we ended with Never Let Go…nuff said that song is just freakin’ great…and the congregation just loves it.

Ok there it is…see you next week; same bat channel.
