Default countmeworthy and UntoHim's Praise/Worship Song of the Day! Turn Up Your Speakers!

Don't be surprised if you get goosebumps all over your spirit, soul and body! When I first got this CD, I played it in my car on my way to an appointment. When this song came on, something began to happen to my soul...to read what happens next, I'll post the You tube to ' Holy Spirit,You are Welcome in this place.'

I pray these songs will bless you and bring healing to your minds, your souls and your bodies as they have done me...to GOD be the GLORY!

HOLY SPIRIT............YOU ARE WELCOME IN THIS FORUM!!!

SATURATE OUR SOULS WITH YOUR PRESENCE as YOU GUIDE our Way, directing our paths unto RIGHTEOUSNESS!!

We LOVE YOU Holy SPIRIT!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uodgo8zLvZQ


& now for the rest of the story..... While in the car..playing this CD "God He Reigns' by Hillsong..as I get to this song, The Glory of GOD, the Holy Spirit falls on me very, very strong, I had to pull over. I was close to a shopping center & that is where I pulled over.

Honestly, I don't recall having the Presence of the LORD 'hit me' like that. I was 'drunk in the Spirit'..and about 1/2 hr later, it lifted.
This was in 2006.

Default Singing in the Spirit

Dear Ones,

I have had very similar experiences to countmeworthy while listening to the very CDs you are referring to. In Raleigh we love to sing the new comterporary songs and the old traditional hymns and old LC supplement tunes. Often some get together just to sing and sing and sing. They let me join in as a joyful noise.

I will find out how to post some of the songs of praise and thanksgiving that our local saints have written. I am sure they will be a supply.

Hope, Don Rutledge

Thumbs up Modern Hymns by Keith and Kristyn Getty

Hello, dear ones.

My dear wife and I have really been enjoying some of the "modern hymns" composed and sung by Keith and Kristyn Getty. Their music is always uplifting and the words are very Christ-exalting.

Here are a few links for you to enjoy:

1) A quiet, meditative, version of their modern hymn "In Christ Alone": click here .

2) A more upbeat version of "In Christ Alone" from a public appearance at Shadow Mountain Community Church in El Cajon, CA: click here .

Default And when I could not reach mercy, mercy came running to me!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VpodVp6LH8s

Once there was a holy place
Evidence of God's embrace
And I can almost see mercy's face
Pressed against the veil

Looking down with longing eyes
Mercy must have realized
That once His blood was sacrificed
Freedom would prevail

And as the sky grew dark
And the earth began to shake
With justice no longer in the way

Chorus:
Mercy came running
Like a prisoner set free
Past all my failures to the point of my need
When the sin that I carried
Was all I could see
And when I could not reach mercy
Mercy came running to me

Once there was a broken heart
Way to human from the start
And all the years left it torn apart
Hopeless and afraid

Walls I never meant to build
Left this prisoner unfulfilled
Freedom called but even still
It seemed so far away

I was bound by the chains
From the wages of my sin
Just when I felt like giving in

Sometimes I still feel so far
So far from where I really should be
He gently calls to my heart
Just to remind me

Phillips, Craig and Dean

Default Re: Praise/Worship Song of the Day! Turn Up Your Speakers!

I just recently bought (again) a pile of CDs from http://christianbook.com, mostly from the discount bin.. I was feeling the need for more Christian music for my long commute to work and back (1-1.5h each way). Anyways, right now, the songs that I am loving the most, and bring me to tears every time I hear them:

David Meece - We Are The Reason
Steven Curtis Chapman - His Strength is Perfect
Steven Curtis Chapman - My Redeemer is Faithful and True

After being stuck with only LSM approved hymns for a while now, I have found it extremely liberating to hear good Christian music again. And as a bonus, my wife keeps swiping the CDs to listen to them, so she's getting a dose of non-LSM Christian music too

Excellent choices ABrotherInChrist!

Another blessed and Anointed Christian musician is Fernando Ortega.

I will attempt to insert youtubes here to watch and listen to him play his piano unto the Lord. God truly uses this man to bring us into the Presence of the King. His music is very moving and soothing. I like to go to sleep listening to his cds. Of course, it takes me a lot longer to fall asleep as I end up Praising and Worshipping the Lord before I finally fall asleep.

Sing to Jesus:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SODks36AdI8

Jesus King of Angels, Heaven's light:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEijL...eature=related

Children of the Living God, sing to the Living God:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_AzRoAh5VBY&NR=1

If they don't show up you can google him and you can youtube him there.

May the Lord bless Fernando Ortega and fill him with the Joy of the Lord and the Peace of God beyond all measure.

I'll have to take a look at these at home sometime. At work they've blocked youtube (bah!) I know, I should be working at work, but it IS lunch time, so whatever.

I was just getting a bit frustrated with the lack of spiritual feeding in my life due to being stuck in the LSM/LC for now (until my wife is ready to leave)... And the Lord is good... He brought to my mind yet another song:

Steven Curtis Chapman - Wait on the Lord.

Rather humbling, but there it is:

"Wait, wait, wait on the Lord. You will understand in time why you must wait..."

Oh, Lord give me more patience

My apologies for any who went looking for the song... It's actually called "Wait" and is track 7 on the "Real Life Conversations" CD. And I shall now drown out my coworkers by playing said CD into headphones.

Excellent Terry! Those of you out there who do not know the Keith Green story should check it out here on youtube. There is a whole series. The man was wildly converted and served the Lord with a reckless abandon like none other. Many of the songs he wrote as a newly saved young man have become classics in the church. I bet many don't realize that this wild curly haired guy wrote this stuff...

"There is a redeemer":
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEwR9Zvnk9g

"Oh Lord You're Beautiful":

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQ3lvN4tQmY

Here is Part 1 of the Keith Green Story:

I must agree on this song. And the passion of singing about God's compassion somehow screams for the sound and feel of an 80s rock ballad to display that passion.

Some excellent youtube videos recorded in Mansfield, OH, which show a precious brother performing heartfelt versions of Keith Green's songs:

1. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpziLbKcq4g

2. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVqc1lQstUc

3. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfOdQr_w0v4

Enjoy!

This dear brother has quite a heart for the Lord. You can freely download his music from his web site at http://www.jasonlonjacobs.com/. He performs for various assemblies all over the country , and always performs for free! How wonderful is that!

I LOVE "The Days of Elijah" "Majesty" is also on my top 50. Michael W Smith was in town last week. I FORGOT to go to the concert !!! :mad2:

Fernando Ortega
Hillsong (although I have their older music)
Michael W Smith

I appreciate the Praise/Music posted here.

Thanks all!

The Alter and the Door:
Careless, I am reckless
I'm a wrong-way-travelin'-slowly-unraveling shell of a man
Burnt out, I'm so numb now
That the fire's just an ember way down in the corner of my cold, cold heart

(Pre-Chorus)
Lord, this time I'll make it right, here at the altar I lay my life
Your kingdom come but my will was done, my heart is broken as I...

(Chorus)
Cry, like so many times before
But my eyes are dry before I leave the floor, oh Lord
I try but this time, Jesus, how can I be sure I will not lose my follow through
Between the altar and the door

Here at the altar, oh my world so black and white
How could I ever falter
What You've shown me to be right

(Pre-Chorus)
(Chorus)

I'm trying so hard to stop trying so hard
Just let You be who You are
Lord, who You are in me
Jesus, I'm trying so hard to stop trying so hard
Just let You be who You are
Lord, who You are in me

Oh Lord, I

Most peculiar. I linked from that previous attempt and listened to the song. (And a good one it is.)

I sort of had a sense of deja vu when I saw your more recent post and none prior to it after January. Began to question my sanity.

Listening to the song made me think specifically of two brothers Ransford Ackah and Francis Ball who had passed away within the last 5 years. Each had maintained their vision. One had parted ways with Living Stream while one continued as a locality elder and FTTA trainer.
Each of these two brothers were co-workers in San Bernardino when I was a high school brother. I was distraught how their passing was received so differently. If we say we are the Body, however the measure of our love fluctuates whether or not we're meeting with the recovery?
It's easy to say we love all members of the Body, but when our actions illustrate a contradiction.....what says ye?

Some hymns and songs I like:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9jqbJhT-LY – Be Thou My Vision
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLfBz0fjPr8 – Oh Glorious Christ Savior Mine
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVa9ruwdI8k – Christ is All
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENtL_li4GbE – In Christ Alone
https://www.hymnal.net/en/hymn/h/824 - The church is Christ’s own body
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1oYeRE0ehPg – Jesus thou joy of loving hearts

Beware words that scroll in the second hymn (many have wrongly been filled with pride by them). Listen to the words of the song though

Beware of the statement "she is like Christ is, "divine in every way". In the fourth. Not true. There are many divine attributes of Christ the church does not possess.

Pride comes before a fall, and a haughty spirit before destruction! We are nothing without Christ, and with him we are servants.

The songs from the saints in the LC are to me some of the most beautiful, encouraging and Christ-centered music I have enjoyed. I still have the Divine Romance CD and enjoy many of Howard's deep, heart-felt songs. I continue to enjoy the NYCYPCD and purchase any new one that comes out. They have helped me through many a difficult time. We used to sing and worship the Lord like this all the time in every meeting. We were always so in love with Him and could always sense His love for us. I wonder my brother do the saints still sing like this in the meetings of the church?

Between 2005 and 2015 in California the hymnal (changed little since mid- 1980's) was used at the Sunday meeting. The saints tend to repeat the lines from it as if they were scripture now. A song book with selections from the hymnal and songs composed by local church saints was used in home and campus meetings. Both have many good songs for worshipping the Lord, but contain elements of worshipping "the Church Life" or the church too. The joy of the Lord and outpouring of the Spirit during singing (and everything else) seemed greatly diminished versus late 70's and early 80's to me.

Can you tell me your favorite hymns and spiritual songs (regardless of where they came from)?

Sing. Let us sing, to the glory of the King!

https://www.hymnal.net/en/hymn/h/77
Lift that Name High - Margaret E. Barber

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyYWK_QDMXc
Lift The Name – Highlands Worship

The first is one of my all time favorite hymns. I found the second while searching the internet for it.

Both are great songs, that agree on who our songs should glorify... Jesus

They present an interesting contrast in presentation styles and highlight the Living Stream Ministry's and Witness Lee's aversion to "worldly music". I recall that was one of his main concerns about spiritual music.

Given the Bible's clear warnings about not loving the world, and friendship with the world being enmity with God, I understand the concern.

I did a Bible word search on the word "world" and find the main concerns about the world being:

a) wisdom of men that exalt themselves and their thinking above God's
b) material possessions becoming what we live for and rely on versus God
c) lust of the flesh
d) reliance on doing the law versus the Spirit by faith
e) lust of the eyes
f) pride of life

Are any of these in either song? No

You're welcome. Yes, truth and the gospel. Challenging and inspiring at the same time. I love when songs are inspired by a section of scripture, and use the words of the scripture in the songs.

I like the Gaither youtube channel. There are a lot of older hymns, some of which are sung in the LC. Coming from a LC background, it's harder to relate to more modern Christian music (but I am gradually learning to do so). For those that don't know, these videos are mostly well-known gospel singers all coming together (setting aside their own egos) to sing songs together. Here is a medley that I like:

I don't necessarily like the videos that come with some of these, but here are a few favorite songs for worship, both modern and older.

You’ll Come https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2RmZFaruXhs

How Deep the Father’s Love https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9FG12eTSbI This is a fairly recent hymn.

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEh7Vt9sxmc This version is Fernando Ortega. I actually prefer the version on the album "Passion: Hymns Ancient and Modern" with various artists, though this one is hard to beat.

Ortega does a lot of older hymns in exceptional ways. Many great for worship. And even the ones that aren't are still great songs, just not necessarily for worship. I have a hard time selecting the best, but Come Thou Fount, is neat the top.

Two of my favorite songs from the local churches' "Hymns" book are:

Gathered in Thy name, Lord Jesus
https://www.hymnal.net/en/hymn/nt/204

This was a good one to start meetings with. I note the music was changed a while back. I still know and enjoy the older music better.

How Deep the Father’s Love https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9FG12eTSbI This is a fairly recent hymn.

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEh7Vt9sxmc This version is Fernando Ortega. I actually prefer the version on the album "Passion: Hymns Ancient and Modern" with various artists, though this one is hard to beat.

Ortega does a lot of older hymns in exceptional ways. Many great for worship. And even the ones that aren't are still great songs, just not necessarily for worship. I have a hard time selecting the best, but Come Thou Fount, is neat the top.
I love these too!

You mentioned you like a lot of older hymns elsewhere, OBW (I think).


I happened upon hymntime.com, and found it to be loaded with "oldies but goodies". It just goes on and on!

I do like them. But they are so hard to remember because even the "traditional" services tend toward collections that they rotate through.

But one thing about older hymns is that they tend to be more focused on content than on melody. I like melodies, and I like harmony. But without worthy texts, they might as well be instrumentals played as people pray or they "pass the plate."

But the best ones often seem to be less catchy musically but more solid in theology and the emotion of worship (not just the emotions). I like songs that are thoughtful. Even contemplative. (I know that term has taken a beating in some circles recently.) Where I attend, the bulletin has in insert for the traditional service laying out all the songs, scripture that will be read, etc. I take that insert and often go home, get out my guitar, and try to simplify one of more of the hymns down to something I can play and is still pleasing for singing or reading. At some level, my notions for doing this are beyond my time, patience, and musical ability, but I keep thinking that "Great Is Thy Faithfulness" in the same service as "You'll Come," along with two or three times through a short chorus (words by David, tune by I can't remember who) of:

. . . . D
Have mercy on me, oh God
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . G
According to your steadfast love
. . Em . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . A -A4 -A
According to your great compassion
Em . . . . . . . . . . . . . . A . . . . .-A4 -A
Blot out my many transgressions
. . . Em . . . . . . . . . . . A
And wash away all my iniquities
. . . . . . . . . . . D
Cleanse me from sin

(Sorry, but without the dots the chords collapse to the left margin)

Did it in a choir 20 years ago (part of a medley with "My Faith Looks Up to Thee"), then later we occasionally used it as part of worship just before the preacher came to pray.

Words of Christ the Lord is ris'n today - Charles Westley, 1799

Christ the Lord is ris’n today, Alleluia!
Sons of men and angels say, Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!
Sing, ye heav’ns, and earth, reply, Alleluia!
Lives again our glorious King, Alleluia!
Where, O death, is now thy sting? Alleluia!
Once He died our souls to save, Alleluia!
Where thy victory, O grave? Alleluia!
Love’s redeeming work is done, Alleluia!
Fought the fight, the battle won, Alleluia!
Death in vain forbids His rise, Alleluia!
Christ hath opened paradise, Alleluia!
Soar we now where Christ hath led, Alleluia!
Foll’wing our exalted Head, Alleluia!
Made like Him, like Him we rise, Alleluia!
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies, Alleluia!
Hail the Lord of earth and heaven, Alleluia!
Praise to Thee by both be given, Alleluia!
Thee we greet triumphant now, Alleluia!
Hail the Resurrection, thou, Alleluia!
King of glory, Soul of bliss, Alleluia!
Everlasting life is this, Alleluia!
Thee to know, Thy pow’r to prove, Alleluia!
Thus to sing, and thus to love, Alleluia!

Be Thou My Vision is today's "Listen Up" on this site. Check it out. Nice!

This song is one of my favorites, and has an interesting history.

Here is another nice rendering of it on YouTube:

It was hard not to listen to one of the others nearby on the page. I started one and was greeted by a stringing of LCM catchphrases. By the end of about 4 lines there had been mention of God's economy (so glorious), consummated, God's eternal purpose . . . . I just couldn't help but kill it then and there. A smorgasbord of Leeology. Shot-gunning every high-sounding phrase they had in their arsenal. It would have made me laugh if it had not made me so ill.

And unlike the one JJ linked (which is at least mostly a regular hymn with no video), this one had pretty scenery scrolling words along with the choir (despite being called Karaoke).

I know this thread is about music we like. But so much of the LCM music was, and is, about catching people who think that simple and focused is poor and theologically (or Leeologically) jam-packed is what worship and singing is all about. Impress everyone with the depth of your theology.

Nothing trite like care for the dying, or Lord have mercy on me. Not even as low as the gospel of salvation. It must be nearly unable to contain the amount of stuff that can be crammed-in.

Sorry the other LCM music was a distraction OBW.

Since I posted the link to Christ is Victor, I've reflected on how Christ displayed His victory. Even that is somewhat mysterious, and not "showing off".

He leaves his linen cloth and head wrap folded in the tomb. Two angels in bright clothing tell the disciples he has been raised like he told them, go to Galilee, he will meet you there.

He is seen by Mary Magdelene, she thinks he is the Gardener, and He says "don't touch me, I go to the Father".

He appears to two disciples on the road to Emmaus and talks to them about his crucifixion and the news of his resurrection, but they don't recognize him until he breaks bread with them. But, while he was expounding the scripture to them their hearts were burning within them.

He pops into two gatherings of the disciples who are in an enclosed room. He shows them the nail marks in his hands and mark in his side. He gives doubting Thomas and all believers to follow a lesson in faith.

He breathes into them and says, "receive the Holy Spirit".

Over the course of 40 days he teaches the disciples about the kingdom of God. But they want to know if he is restoring the kingdom to Israel then.

He gives the fisherman a "fishing by obedience lesson".

He tells them to wait in Jerusalem, until the promise of the Father, the Holy Spirit comes upon them.

Then he ascends into heaven to the Father's side, while an angel tells the disciples he will return the same way he left.

Then he advocates for them at the Father's side while the Holy Spirit testifies concerning Him and convicts the world of sin and righteousness.

Paul said Jesus stripped off the ordinances, making an open display of them.

The Holy Spirit descends upon the gathered church and empowers the disciples to announce the resurrection of Christ and salvation in Jesus. Some think they are drunk. Many believe and others scoff.

The rulers of the Jews and Rome tried to kill this movement, but the more they tried the more it spread.

The more they killed the Christians, the more people were captured in His victory train.

Christ the Victor.

Today's "Listen Up" is another great one. Thanks, Unto Him!

We praise thee o God for the son of thy love - words by Willam P. Mackay, 1863

We praise Thee, O God!
For the Son of Thy love,
For Jesus Who died,
And is now gone above.

Refrain:
Hallelujah! Thine the glory.
Hallelujah! Amen.
Hallelujah! Thine the glory.
Revive us again.

We praise Thee, O God!
For Thy Spirit of light,
Who hath shown us our Savior,
And scattered our night.

All glory and praise
To the Lamb that was slain,
Who hath borne all our sins,
And hath cleansed every stain.

All glory and praise
To the God of all grace,
Who hast brought us, and sought us,
And guided our ways.

Revive us again;
Fill each heart with Thy love;
May each soul be rekindled
With fire from above.

Oh, Christ, He is the Fountain Anne R. Cousin (Words) Wm. R. Bradbury,(arr.)
I found the original words and arrangement at http://www.hymnary.org/hymn/WSSS1890/page/145

Oh, Christ, He is the Fountain, The deep sweet well of love; The streams of earth I’ve tasted, More deep I’ll drink a-bove; There to an ocean fullness His mercy doth ex-pand, And glo – ry, glo – ry dwelleth in Immanuel’s land, And glo – ry, glo – ry dwelleth in Immanuel’s land
With mer-cy and with judgment, My web of time He wove, and all the dews of sor-row Were lus-tered with His love; I’ll bless the hand that guided, I’ll bless the heart that plann’d, When thron’d where glo-ry dwell-eth In Immanuel’s land, When thron’d where glo-ry dwell-eth In Immanuel’s land
Oh! I am my Beloved’s, And my Be-lov-ed’s mine, He drew a trembling sin-ner, By cords of love di-vine; I stand up-on His meri – it, I know no oth – er stand, Not e’en where glo-ry dwell-eth In Immanuel’s land, Not e’en where glo-ry dwell-eth In Immanuel’s land



The Local Church Hymn Book (#1154) version I am more familiar with is on Youtube at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZUY...UYfQA6gdI#t=12 Don't let your eyes stray OBW

I like the changes made to it, but like to see the original too. Original has a little "sweet bye and bye" flavor.

Many Christians, including me, continue to be inspired by the Christ-centered songs of A.B. Simpson.

One of my favorites is "Jesus Only is our Message", which he penned in 1890.

The music and words can be heard and seen at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ay3ATBluP5E

The words are:

Jesus only is our message,
Jesus all our theme shall be;
We will lift up Jesus ever,
Jesus only will we see.

Refrain

Jesus only, Jesus ever,
Jesus all in all we sing,
Savior, sanctifier, and healer,
Glorious Lord and coming king.

Jesus only is our Savior,
All our guilt He bore away,
All our righteousness He gives us,
All our strength from day to day.

Refrain

Jesus is our sanctifier,
Cleansing us from self and sin,
And with all His Spirit’s fullness,
Filling all our hearts within.

Refrain

Jesus only is our healer,
All our sicknesses He bare,
And His risen life and fullness,
All His members still may share.

Refrain

Jesus only is our power,
He the gift of Pentecost,
Jesus, breathe Thy power upon us,
Fill us with the Holy Ghost.

Refrain

And for Jesus we are waiting,
Listening for the advent call;
But ’twill still be Jesus only,
Jesus ever, all in all.

Refrain


A nice contemporary song inspired by this is sung by Aaron Shust

Yet another classic hymn penned by A.B. Simpson:

Himself

Original Words are:

Once it was the blessing,
Now it is the Lord;
Once it was the feeling,
Now it is His Word;
Once His gift I wanted,
Now, the Giver own;
Once I sought for healing,
Now Himself alone.

Refrain

All in all forever,
Jesus will I sing;
Everything in Jesus,
And Jesus everything.

Once ’twas painful trying,
Now ’tis perfect trust;
Once a half salvation,
Now the uttermost;
Once ’twas ceaseless holding,
Now He holds me fast;
Once ’twas constant drifting,
Now my anchor’s cast.

Refrain

Once ’twas busy planning,
Now ’tis trustful prayer;
Once ’twas anxious caring,
Now He has the care;
Once ’twas what I wanted,
Now what Jesus says;
Once ’twas constant asking,
Now ’tis ceaseless praise.

Refrain

Once it was my working,
His it hence shall be;
Once I tried to use Him,
Now He uses me;
Once the pow’r I wanted,
Now the Mighty One;
Once for self I labored,
Now for Him alone.

Refrain

Once I hoped in Jesus,
Now I know He’s mine;
Once my lamps were dying,
Now they brightly shine;
Once for death I waited,
Now His coming hail;
And my hopes are anchored
Safe within the veil.

Refrain

Three versions on Youtube follow

Today's "Listen Up" is a classic.

Jesus Paid it All - Words by Elvina M. Hall, 1865

I hear the Savior say,
“Thy strength indeed is small;
Child of weakness, watch and pray,
Find in Me thine all in all.”
Refrain:
Jesus paid it all,
All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.
For nothing good have I
Whereby Thy grace to claim;
I’ll wash my garments white
In the blood of Calv’ry’s Lamb.
And now complete in Him,
My robe, His righteousness,
Close sheltered ’neath His side,
I am divinely blest.
Lord, now indeed I find
Thy pow’r, and Thine alone,
Can change the *leper’s spots [*leopard’s]
And melt the heart of stone.
When from my dying bed
My ransomed soul shall rise,
“Jesus died my soul to save,”
Shall rend the vaulted skies.
And when before the throne
I stand in Him complete,
I’ll lay my trophies down,
All down at Jesus’ feet.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0k1WhFtVp0o

Refrain:
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;
As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be.

Refrain

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

Refrain

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

"How Great Thou Art" is among the best hymns. I have also recent come across a song by Sara Groves, "He's Always Been Faithful," that fits with it so nicely. I have even contemplated a choir rendition that splices in part of the old hymn.

Thanks for sharing OBW. I found the song you mentioned on You Tube, and it's wonderful! Strains from Great is Thy Faithfullness begin it, and are imbedded at one point. Are you suggesting a choir blend of that or How Great Thou Art?

I love that you bring some musical ability into the discussion.

I'm adding quote from Lamentations 3:22-24 that inspired the poet who first penned Great is Thy Faithfulness. As it inspires me when I'm tempted to get discouraged (which is often):

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him.”

I don't have reference to the Sara Groves song at the moment, but I recall both the intro's "hints" and the interlude a little. I think the Groves song has three verses. In any case, my initial thought was to insert the first verse of "Great is Thy Faithfulness" before the last verse of Grove's song, but right after "thy compassions, they fail not" end the verse with "He's always been faithful to me," then go on to the last verse and repeat the last line as follows:

He's always been faithful . . .
Great is thy faithfulness . . .
He's always been faithful to me

It's just a sketch in my mind. The ending is intended to juxtapose the softening and contemplative ending of the new song with the somewhat oratorical effect of the line from the original. Our contrition and awe set up against the majesty of God.

If I really wanted to do something with it, I would probably work with a true musician who would have additional suggestions (or tell me it just doesn't work). And give it a sufficient score to set out the parts and a rough piano accompaniment.

I think you may see that while I do not like choosing song styles for the purpose of the style, the manner of doing a song is often a secondary, but important part of the song.

If you like the song "Beautiful One" (a fairly upbeat song of the last decade or so), I do too. But several years ago, the music leader at the church I was attending eliminated the chorus, using the pre-chorus as the only chorus, and turned-down the tempo and intensity. Slightly altered the chords to include a couple of minors and you hardly realize it is the same song. And it is a positive change.

This link has several videos. One of them has become damaged (Praise to the Lord, the Almighty) and is only about half there. There are also a couple that were from a separate Thursday night modern worship venue that was hosted by the church but organized by others (although some of the "locals" were involved). Those are the "Mezzanine Floor" videos.

The list includes the Beautiful One and Revelation Song/Holy, Holy, Holy. There is also an original, "Kyrie (Lord Have Mercy)" that I have come to really appreciate. I never heard it live but only on the video.

Ignoring the more raucous Mezzanine Floor videos, you get a little glimpse of some recent history of worship that has influenced my thinking. And I am not saying I don't like the Mezzanine Floor stuff. Just not sure that it is always right for corporate worship — at least in the sense of the primary gatherings.

OK, I see with your explanation and link what you are talking about. Too bad the video quality is poor. In spite of that, I enjoyed Revelation Song/Holy, Holy, Holy and the slow version of Beautiful One. Thanks for sharing!

Regarding the doxology, I always thought it was weird to sing the words "Holy Ghost".. Sounds scary. I understand that's the translation they had in the 1600's. Perhaps this could use some musicianship to update it to something we can relate to better.

The videos were not really important. If you notice, the band is not making a show. The recording is simply being made from a camera and a microphone in the sound booth area (not directly off the sound board) and there is clearly something in the lighting that is not picked-up right by the camera.

As for the older wording, such as ghost v spirit, I often agree. But once you start, where do you stop? Get rid of every "thee," "thou," "art," etc. at the cost of the rhyming? Again, I think that sometimes it works well. And sometimes it doesn't. And sometimes you cause people to be lost in paying attention to which word to use rather than the meaning of the song.

I know that is the reason that some of the modern versions have completely different tunes. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Yet younger ones often like the newer versions simply because they are newer. As if that is the reason something is good. Same goes for liking the old hymns just because that is the way Paul and Silas did it. (Like when people jokingly say that KJV was good enough for Paul and Silas . . . .).

I enjoyed today's "Listen UP" "Our God Reigns! by LouAnn Lee et. al.

Music, words, and video capture the joy and awe in Jesus experienced by saints around the world.... until He comes! I'm preserving the link here for when another "Listen Up" takes its place.

"Come to the Father through Jesus the Son." Sounds like pretty clear and orthodox doctrine to me. Would "come to the processed and consummated God through the last Adam who became a life-giving seven-fold intensified Spirit" have the same impact? The LSM phraseology kind of muddy's the water for me, which may be satan's intent.

Yes, gotta love Ol Fanny's simple biblical words. I'm not quite sure what to say about the alternative. Funny, and kinda sad

[QUOTE=JJ;48410]Re: What are your favorite hymns to worship the Father?

Do you like "What love thou hast bestowed on us?" by Witness Lee?

Words at http://www.witness-lee-hymns.org/hymns/H0030.html

Singing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GwEh71uxQ7w

This used to be one of my favorites to sing at the end of Lords' Table meetings.

I've always liked that it continues beyond redemption through other areas of Christian growth (and still do).

As I read the lyrics now, I see seeds of things that grew into big problems.

Do you see them too? If yes, what are they, and how could the words be improved?

O
Breath
Of
Life

Jerry Williams
and Harvest

Original Lyrics by

Bessie P. Head
1850-1936

O breath of life, come
sweeping through us,
Revive Thy church
with life and power;
O Breath of life,
come, cleanse, renew us,
And fit Thy church
to meet this hour.

Revive us, Lord!
Is zeal abating
While harvest fields
are vast and white?
Revive, us Lord,
the world is waiting,
Equip Thy church
to spread the light.

O breath of love,
come breathe within us,
Renewing thought
and will and heart;
Come, Love of Christ,
afresh to win us,
Revive Thy church
in every part.

"Far above all" is our Saviour enthroned;
Crowned is the Lamb who for sinners atoned;
Living forever to list to our call,
God hath exalted Him "far above all."

Refrain:

"Far above all!" "far above all!"
Jesus the Crucified, "far above all!"
Low at His footstool adoring we fall,
God hath exalted Him "far above all."

When the fierce tempest, uplifting its waves,
Seeks to engulf us, we cry and He saves;
Looking to Jesus, upheld by His hand,
Tread we the billows as safe as on land.

High are the cities that dare our assault,
Strong are the barriers that call us to halt;
March we on fearless, and down they must fall,
Vanquished by faith in Him "far above all."

His is the kingdom from pole unto pole;
"Far above all" while the ages shall roll;
With Him the victors, who followed His call,
Share in His royalty "far above all."

Horace E. Govan, 1866-1932
Musician: Charles H. Gabriel, 1856-1932

OK, so here are words of another classic hymn by Frederick Lehman. You Tube has many different videos by various singers and genres:

The love of God is greater far
Than tongue or pen can ever tell;
It goes beyond the highest star,
And reaches to the lowest hell;
The guilty pair, bowed down with care,
God gave His Son to win;
His erring child He reconciled,
And pardoned from his sin.
Refrain:
Oh, love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure—
The saints’ and angels’ song.
When hoary time shall pass away,
And earthly thrones and kingdoms fall,
When men who here refuse to pray,
On rocks and hills and mountains call,
God’s love so sure, shall still endure,
All measureless and strong;
Redeeming grace to Adam’s race—
The saints’ and angels’ song.
Could we with ink the ocean fill,
And were the skies of parchment made,
Were every stalk on earth a quill,
And every man a scribe by trade;
To write the love of God above
Would drain the ocean dry;
Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
Though stretched from sky to sky.

Frederick Lehman tells us that verse 3 “had been found penciled on the wall of a patient’s room in an insane asylum after he had been carried to his grave.” While it is only supposition that he was the one who adapted the Jewish author’s poem to leave us these well-known lines, if the account is true it shows in any case that he highly esteemed the message.

Today's "Listen Up" is How Deep the Father's Love for Us - written by Stuart Townend, sung by Fernando Ortego https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLDGVl8D5UU

OBW posted this song as one of his favorites in this thread a while back ( sung by another artist). This is also one of my favorite Christian songs too. Thanks, Unto Him, for pointing this one out. I'm saving the words, here, which are very moving:

How deep the Father’s
love for us,
How vast beyond all measure,
That He should give
His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure.
How great the pain
of searing loss -
The Father turns
His face away,
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory.

Behold the man upon a cross,
My sin upon His shoulders;
Ashamed, I hear
my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers.
It was my sin that
held Him there
Until it was accomplished;
His dying breath has
brought me life -
I know that it is finished.

I will not boast in anything,
No gifts, no power,
no wisdom;
But I will boast in Jesus Christ,
His death and resurrection.
Why should I gain
from His reward?
I cannot give an answer;
But this I know with
all my heart -
His wounds have
paid my ransom.

Thanks JJ. Where I meet at Seattle Christian Assembly they love these traditional hymns, with such deep, meaningful sentiment for the Lord. Some of the hymns I never had heard before, but they are all good,
Friday night before breaking into Bible study groups; Sunday morning; and Tues night before breaking into prayer groups.

Your other hymn, post #60, my son knew I liked, and had it printed on wood w/turquoise background. I have it on my dresser. "The love of God is greater far than tongue or pen could ever tell...".

I was reading back through this thread and noted that at one point I started talking about "How Great Thou Are" when I obviously meant "Great is thy Faithfulness.

But I was also thinking about the other thing that is becoming larger in my thoughts lately . . . .

There are a lot of good Christian songs of all kinds. But not all are worship songs in the sense of corporate worship. Yet there is a tendency in some circles to not differentiate.

When it comes to worship time, it is mostly about Him. Less about me. Even less about the church. Not saying I disappear entirely. But much less.

That Sara Groves song that I mentioned in those earlier emails is not really corporate worship music. As special music (choir or solo, maybe), but not general congregational singing. But I still like it.

Oddly, I place "10,000 Reasons" somewhere near the break between regular worship and all other good Christian songs. The "story" seems to revolve around "me" but only in that it describes God as being the center of everything. So "bless the Lord, Oh my soul" is really solid.

Of course, to include the gospel, there is an aspect in which "I" the sinner will always be a part.

But I have less "good feeling" toward the pining for glory songs. And "I'll Fly Away" types. To much about me and my woes. I've got them. But that does not mean that songs of the life to come or mourning over loss are verboten. But they have specific places (in my worship-ology).

And I fail to mention that songs that are truly prayers are generally good (if they are generally good, if you get my drift). Doesn't matter how "me" or "we" those get. How much we need a good "Lord have mercy on me" — in song or in prayer (or both combined).

. . . . .

Squirrel!!

If I am not repeating myself (and if I am not repeating myself (and . . .)) there is a pretty good song recently by Mercy Me. Overall a great song. But there is one thing that really bugs me. The chorus effectively says "greater is the one living inside of me than he who is living in the world." Absolutely great. But then they stop and sing "In the woooorrrrld" all drawn out two or three times before repeating the whole phrase again.

And it is so upbeat.

Why does "in the world" get emphasized so strongly in a "makes you wanna dance" kind of upbeat way? I think they messed up (IMHO).

. . . . .

OK. Back to my ramblings.

While style is partly a matter of taste and partly a matter of what fits the lyrics, I have tended toward more a more contemplative feel lately. There are surely times to be bombastic. But even those can sometimes be turned down. And slowed down. Give us some more time and less distraction as we consider what we are singing.

(I notice that no one is asking me to be worship leader anywhere.)

We sang this last night, a hymn focused on the Lord Himself, with the first 4 vv "by Him" to us What a touching hymn, from 1858. Verses 5-6 are "to Him", which came later in 1871. More history of the hymn at http://cyberhymnal.org/htm/i/g/igavemyl.htm


I Gave My Life for Thee


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TjUsi7X28U


I gave My life for thee, My precious blood I shed,
That thou might ransomed be, and raised up from the dead
I gave, I gave My life for thee, what hast thou given for Me?
I gave, I gave My life for thee, what hast thou given for Me?

My Father’s house of light, My glory circled throne
I left for earthly night, for wanderings sad and lone;
I left, I left it all for thee, hast thou left aught for Me?
I left, I left it all for thee, hast thou left aught for Me?

I suffered much for thee, more than thy tongue can tell,
Of bitterest agony, to rescue thee from hell.
I’ve borne, I’ve borne it all for thee, what hast thou borne for Me?
I’ve borne, I’ve borne it all for thee, what hast thou borne for Me?

And I have brought to thee, down from My home above,
Salvation full and free, My pardon and My love;
I bring, I bring rich gifts to thee, what hast thou brought to Me?
I bring, I bring rich gifts to thee, what hast thou brought to Me?

And Thou hast brought to me, down from Thy home above,
Salvation full and free, Thy pardon and Thy love.
Great gifts Thou broughtest me; what have I brought to Thee?
Great gifts Thou broughtest me; what have I brought to Thee?

O let my life be given, my years for Thee be spent,
World fetters all be riven, and joy with suffering blent!
Thou gavest Thyself for me; I give myself to Thee.
Thou gavest Thyself for me; I give myself to Thee.

I'm glad you get to sing and hear these traditional hymns, Indiana. Many of them are not played very often in churches that have "contemporary worship". I fear that's a loss for the next generation.

The Love of God is certainly a classic. Here are links to two versions on You Tube.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjj2kZ1qoqw – Mercy Me, Contemporary
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEi463LcxxA – Heber Vega, Traditional

I agree that the best worship songs are those that focus on Him versus us.

Peter walked on water when he was looking at Jesus, but began to sink the second he looked at himself. That's a good lesson for us.

The songs I post here are those that focus on Him and are based on scripture, the two main factors I look for.

Regarding the music, I have little musical training, so I can't comment on that. Sorry.

OBW mentioned Revelation Song in one of his posts on this thread a while back.

This has become a very popular contemporary worship song. I like to sing it too.

I'm posting a link to You Tube versions sung by Phillips, Craig, Dean

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofNBuMdrbcg

The words are:

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, holy, holy is He
Sing a new song to Him who sits on heaven's mercy seat
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, holy, holy is He
Sing a new song to Him who sits on heaven's mercy seat

Holy, holy, holy is the Lord, God Almighty
Who was and is and is to come
With all creation I sing praise to the King of Kings
You are my everything and I will adore You, I will adore You

Clothed in rainbows of living color
Flashes of lightning, rolls of thunder
Blessing and honor, strength and glory
And power be to You the only wise King, yeah

Holy, holy, holy is the Lord, God Almighty
Who was and is and is to come, yeah
With all creation I sing praise to the King of Kings
You are my everything and I will adore You
Holy, holy, You are holy

Filled with wonder, awestruck wonder
At the mention of Your name
Jesus, Your name is power, breath and living water
Such a marvelous mystery, yeah

I like to sing "Hosanna", remembering the Lord Jesus' entry into Jerusalem, looking forward to his coming again.

Here is Hillsong United's "Hosanna" song on You Tube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NoM0AT8fBvs

Thayer's lexicon says the word Hosanna is from Psalm 118:25 and means
'save, I pray', is shortened in the Greek form to 'save us', and also means 'be propitious'.

Here is Matthew's account of Jesus' entry into Jerusalem (Mat 21:1-16, NASB):

When they had approached Jerusalem and had come to Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied there and a colt with her; untie them and bring them to Me.
“If anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord has need of them,’ and immediately he will send them.”
This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:
“SAY TO THE DAUGHTER OF ZION,
‘BEHOLD YOUR KING IS COMING TO YOU,
GENTLE, AND MOUNTED ON A DONKEY,
EVEN ON A COLT, THE FOAL OF A BEAST OF BURDEN.’”
The disciples went and did just as Jesus had instructed them,
and brought the donkey and the colt, and laid their coats on them; and He sat on the coats.
Most of the crowd spread their coats in the road, and others were cutting branches from the trees and spreading them in the road.
The crowds going ahead of Him, and those who followed, were shouting,
“Hosanna to the Son of David;
BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD;
Hosanna in the highest!”
When He had entered Jerusalem, all the city was stirred, saying, “Who is this?”
And the crowds were saying, “This is the prophet Jesus, from Nazareth in Galilee.”
And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling doves.
And He said to them, “It is written, ‘MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED A HOUSE OF PRAYER’; but you are making it a ROBBERS’ DEN.”
And the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them.
But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonderful things that He had done, and the children who were shouting in the temple, “Hosanna to the Son of David,” they became indignant
and said to Him, “Do You hear what these children are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes; have you never read, ‘OUT OF THE MOUTH OF INFANTS AND NURSING BABIES YOU HAVE PREPARED PRAISE FOR YOURSELF’?”

Mark 1:11 and John 12:9-16 also give accounts of the same event.

The praise of the Lord in these accounts is a quote from Psalm 118:25. I like to read that verse in context as follows (verses 19-26 of Psalm 118), and know it refers to Christ's coming:

"Open to me the gates of righteousness;
I shall enter through them, I shall give thanks to the LORD.
This is the gate of the LORD;
The righteous will enter through it.
I shall give thanks to You, for You have answered me,
And You have become my salvation.
The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief corner stone.
This is the LORD’S doing;
It is marvelous in our eyes.
This is the day which the LORD has made;
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
O LORD, do save, we beseech You;
O LORD, we beseech You, do send prosperity!
Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the LORD;
We have blessed you from the house of the LORD."

Here’s a pretty good web site about Jesus’ second coming with scripture references:
http://activechristianity.org/the-en...ing-of-christ/

Hosanna! Do save Lord Jesus! Thank you that babes praised you at your first coming. And, thank you that we can praise you now, and at your second coming.

Here's an old hymn we sang many times in local church meetings I still like:

JESUS, our Lord, with what joy we adore Thee
by H. D'Arcy Champney (1854-1942)

sung to Epiphany Hymn
by J. F. Thrupp (1827-1867)

1 JESUS, our Lord, with what joy we adore Thee;
Chanting our praise to Thyself on the throne,
Blest in Thy presence we worship before Thee,
Own Thou art worthy, and worthy alone.

2 How hast Thou triumphed, and triumphed with glory,
Battled death's forces, rolled back every wave!
Can we refrain then from telling the story,
How Thou art victor o'er death and the grave?

3 "Lord, what is man?" we would break forth
exclaiming;
Jesus, the crowned One, the Lamb that was slain!
Joyful we own Thee, Thy praises proclaiming;
Death Thou hast vanquished by rising again!

4 "Lord, what is man?" Yes, with deep adoration,
Gladly prolong we this wonderful theme;
Jesus, divine One, Thou Head of creation,
Head of Thy church, which Thou cam'st to redeem!

A faceless brother plays the tune on guitar here https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=C4NPAEX2aHQ

I wish there was a better recording, sung with joy from the heart to the worthy One we adore!

Thanks Unto Him, for finding a better video for the last song 👏

Now here's a great newer song:

"Wonderful Merciful Savior" written by Philips, Craig, and Dean

Wonderful, merciful Savior
Precious Redeemer and friend
Who would have thought that a lamb could
Rescue the souls of men
Oh, You rescue the souls of men

Counselor, Comforter, Keeper
Spirit we long to embrace
You offer hope when our hearts have
Hopleloessly lost the way
Oh, we hopelessly lost the way

[Chorus]
You are the one that we praise
You are the one we adore
You give the healing and grace
Our hearts always hunger for
Oh, our hearts always hunger for

Almighty, infinite Father
Faithfully loving Your own
Here in our weakness You find us
Falling before Your throne
Oh, we're falling before Your throne

[Chorus]

Sung by Selah

I like the song. I just wish it didn't generally come out so bouncy. Not that bouncy is not at least somewhat appropriate. Just that 6/8 beat of 1 2 3 4 5 6 1 2 3 . . . . sort of has a thing of its own. Someone did it in a way that was not so bouncy and I liked it much better. Smoothed out the emphasis. Made it more worshipful than wanting to do a Vienna Waltz. (I'll admit that I have not heard PCD's version)

Philips, Craig, and Dean sing their song here, OBW: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=dMuLcJT6jME

I see many others have covered this song beautifully on You Tube in ways that seem more reverent.

I can't speak to the music though. I like them all

I found something very interesting about Hymn 505 in the LSM Hymnal, which I always liked to sing:

"There's a Man in the Glory", Lyrics by Mary E. McDonough (1863 - 1962)

LSM has the words here: Words: https://www.hymnal.net/en/hymn/h/505
I even found a copywrite notice under this hymn on another site LSM has the words to the hymnal at.

The song is sung nicely here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_R07hyUzdM

Now here's where is gets weird (to me, as a former member of TLC beginning in 1978).

I learned by internet search that Mary E. McDonough wrote a book called "God's Plan of Redemption" that is filled with teachings concerning the tripartite man (uses the three circle diagram) and God's work to transform Christians into His image and glorious bride that are amazingly similar to Witness Lee's teachings I learned in the late 1970's - 1980's. The last page of an internet link to that book includes this hymn at: http://marymcdonough.ccws.org/appropriated/index.html

Here is a web site that talks about the tripartite man and Mary E. McDonough's (and others') teaching concerning it.

Now maybe some former members of TLC from the early 1960's can enlighten me about the relationship between Mary E. McDonough, Watchman Nee, and Witness Lee. Because there is a lot of copying of content going on here, and I'm not sure how this all came about. Nor do I know why Mary's hymn is now copywrited by LSM.

To be fair. I do remember Witness Lee mentioning the other authors mentioned on the site, saying his teachings were built on what they had seen (he often said he "stood on their shoulders" and saw further). I don't remember anything about this Mary E. McDonough though.

Now why is this important? Because I had no idea how similar Witness Lee's teachings were to hers, and of course I gave Watchman Nee and Witness Lee the credit for them (because I didn't know). And, I'll bet many others did the same.

I'm enjoying "Faithful Father" by Brian Doerksen, posted on this site by Unto Him today

I've been hearing "The Lion and the Lamb" on Christian radio, and enjoying it.

Default Re: Praise/Worship Song of the Day! Turn Up Your Speakers!

Chris Tomlin and Matt Redman have been writing and recording great worship songs for many years. Of course being in TLR, I missed hearing them, and initially looked down on them when I first heard them after I left.

Below are links to four I like the more I hear them. Tell me what you think.

"Kyrie Elieson" https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=-uzbDpBEAUU

"Glory in the Highest" https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=O0RJmvHmrDM

"Unfailing Love" https://m.youtube.com/watch?list=PL2...Pg&mode=NORMAL

"Awakening" https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=0_J9BI6AFO0 (by Chris Tomlin alone)

Today's "Listen Up" The Lamb of God by Twila Paris is worthy of saving here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmVrP-G3rAw

I'm not crazy about some of the pictures in this and many of the videos I post. But, like the words and singing.

Thank's UntoHim.

I hope it is OK that I resurrected this old thread. It has content I hadn't seen, as I joined after it went dormant.

I'm with ya JJ. Some of the video visuals are not exactly tasteful. Sometimes I simply go to another window on the browser and then I only have the audio in the background.

Here is a live version of Lamb of God by Twila Paris. The audio quality is not very good, but again, it is a non professional live recording.

Love Lifted Me

· I was sinking deep in sin, far from the peaceful shore,
Very deeply stained within, sinking to rise no more,
But the Master of the sea heard my despairing cry,
From the waters lifted me, now safe am I.

Love lifted me!
Love lifted me!
When nothing else could help,
Love lifted me!

· All my heart to Him I give, ever to Him I’ll cling,
In His blessed presence live, ever His praises sing,
Love so mighty and so true, merits my soul’s best songs,
Faithful, loving service, too, to Him belongs.

· Souls in danger, look above, Jesus completely saves,
He will lift you by His love, out of the angry waves;
He’s the Master of the sea, billows His will obey,
He your Savior wants to be, be saved today.

I remember singing this song as a young man years ago. I do not know/remember if I ever sang it in a LC meeting in the 40 years of attending. I heard it the other day and it spoke to me of a simple touch with the Lord, something I need more than not. Eventually I changed "Love lifted me" to "Christ lifted me" and it became as rich. Love and Christ lifted me. I enjoyed this song, one from a timeless simpler time.

Hark the Herald Angels Sing

Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the newborn King!"
Peace on earth, and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled
Joyful, all ye nations, rise,
Join the triumph of the skies;
With th' angelic host proclaim,
"Christ is born in Bethlehem."
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the newborn King!"

Christ, by highest heav'n adored:
Christ, the everlasting Lord;
Late in time behold him come,
Offspring of the favored one.
Veil'd in flesh, the Godhead see;
Hail, th'incarnate Deity:
Pleased, as man, with men to dwell,
Jesus, our Emmanuel!
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the newborn King!"

Hail! the heav'n born Prince of peace!
Hail! the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all he brings,
Risen with healing in his wings
Mild he lays his glory by,
Born that man no more may die:
Born to raise the sons of earth,
Born to give them second birth.
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the newborn King!"

Another song I liked from my youth. I do not believe I have sang this song in a church meeting for at least 30 years. I recall Ed Marks calling this hymn in a winter training meeting back in the 1980's (I think). When Brother Lee took the podium he asked him why he called a "Christmas song" to sing (in December) and had a few more words to add to it. I don't recall if Ed had an answer or not, but WL sent a clear message throughout the recovery to don’t do that, humiliating EM in the process. Nevertheless, this is still one of my favorite hymns. It was written in 1739 by Charles Wesley.


The link I chose from youtube is one of many. I just picked that one.

Blessed Assurance

  1. Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
    Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
    Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
    Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.
    • Refrain:
      This is my story, this is my song,
      Praising my Savior all the day long;
      This is my story, this is my song,
      Praising my Savior all the day long.
  2. Perfect submission, perfect delight,
    Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
    Angels, descending, bring from above
    Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.
  3. Perfect submission, all is at rest,
    I in my Savior am happy and blest,
    Watching and waiting, looking above,
    Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.
Another hymn I enjoyed from long ago. We sang this at a memorial service for a dear sister who passed on to be with the Lord. (Sonia Smith, passed Nov 4th, she was 95.) This was her favorite song and it was so nice to sing it with the family. It was written by Fanny Crosby in 1873.

I don't celebrate Christmas. But I take the opportunity to explain that God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.
This time of the year my favorite hymn: Once in Royal David's City

LSM has the words here: Words: https://www.hymnal.net/en/hymn/h/505
I even found a copywrite notice under this hymn on another site LSM has the words to the hymnal at.

The song is sung nicely here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_R07hyUzdM

Now here's where is gets weird (to me, as a former member of TLC beginning in 1978).

I learned by internet search that Mary E. McDonough wrote a book called "God's Plan of Redemption" that is filled with teachings concerning the tripartite man (uses the three circle diagram) and God's work to transform Christians into His image and glorious bride that are amazingly similar to Witness Lee's teachings I learned in the late 1970's - 1980's. The last page of an internet link to that book includes this hymn at: http://marymcdonough.ccws.org/appropriated/index.html

Here is a web site that talks about the tripartite man and Mary E. McDonough's (and others') teaching concerning it.

Now maybe some former members of TLC from the early 1960's can enlighten me about the relationship between Mary E. McDonough, Watchman Nee, and Witness Lee. Because there is a lot of copying of content going on here, and I'm not sure how this all came about. Nor do I know why Mary's hymn is now copywrited by LSM.

To be fair. I do remember Witness Lee mentioning the other authors mentioned on the site, saying his teachings were built on what they had seen (he often said he "stood on their shoulders" and saw further). I don't remember anything about this Mary E. McDonough though.

Now why is this important? Because I had no idea how similar Witness Lee's teachings were to hers, and of course I gave Watchman Nee and Witness Lee the credit for them (because I didn't know). And, I'll bet many others did the same.
Mystery Solved?

I found an explanation of who Mary E. Mc Donough was on hymnal.net

2014
Steve Miller
Detroit, MI, United States states:
"Mrs. McDonough was born in New Hampshire and eventually settled in the Boston area. She became acquainted with A. B. Simpson through his annual conventions held at Old Orchard Beach, Maine. Mrs. McDonough wrote "God's Plan of Redemption" as a Bible study course to present the truths of the gospel in a logical, convincing manner to the young people at that time. She felt that the teaching of evolution in schools and the higher criticism that many preachers were falling into were pernicious teachings which drew many away from the faith. She addressed the problem with a logical presentation of the Bible truths from a biological viewpoint. The book first appeared in the United States and was later published in Britain in 1922 by Mrs. Penn-Lewis. Mrs. McDonough was a very private person and conducted her ministry from her apartment and a local bookstore. This hymn appears as a poem at the end of her book, making no mention of the author. - Songs of the Spirit by Martin"

I note that T.A. Sparks quoted "There's a Man in The Glory" Hymn Word for word in a message he gave, without naming the author.

http://www.austin-sparks.net/english/books/002916.html

Witness Lee also mentioned this Hymn as one he liked a number of times. He was reported to also be a fan of the diagrams in "God's Plan of Redemption" written by Mary E. Mc Donough, and first published in the early 1920's.

I've been enjoying the songs in this thread as well as "Listen Up" selections.

A short song from TLC''s old "Supplement" is welling up in me this morning:

Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible,
**The only wise God, the only wise God,
Be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen. Amen.
**Be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

https://www.hymnal.net/en/hymn/h/134...loop=2&delay=0

Based on this verse http://bibleapps.com/1_timothy/1-17.

Indeed they did. They were wrong to think though that they had "cornered the market" on truth.... as this song (and other truth filled songs) written by a couple from "Christianity" (the Gettys) demonstrates.

Following is another group singing the same song.

Jesus Messiah another great praise/worship song from Chris Tomlin and others (Danielle Carson, Ed Cash, Jesse Reeves)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdxSC1tHJn0

He became sin, who knew no sin
That we might become His righteousness
He humbled himself and carried the cross
Love so amazing, love so amazing
Jesus Messiah, name above all names
Blessed redeemer, Emmanuel
The rescue for sinners, the ransom from Heaven
Jesus Messiah, Lord of all
His body the bread, his blood the wine
Broken and poured out all for love
The whole earth trembled, and the veil was torn
Love so amazing, love so amazing, yeah
Jesus Messiah, name above all names
Blessed redeemer, Emmanuel
The rescue for sinners, the ransom from Heaven
Jesus Messiah, Lord of all
All our hope is in You, all our hope is in You
All the glory to You, God, the light of the world
Jesus Messiah, name above all names
Blessed redeemer, Emmanuel
The rescue for sinners, the ransom from Heaven

Good Good Father
Songwriters: Anthony Brown / Joseph Patrick Martin Barrett

Sung by Chris Tomlin

http://www.metrolyrics.com/good-good...video-lwz.html

Lyrics:

I've heard a thousand stories of what they think you're like
But I've heard the tender whispers of love in the dead of night
And you tell me that you're pleased
And that I'm never alone
You're a good good father
It's who you are, it's who you are, it's who you are
And I'm loved by you
It's who I am, it's who I am, it's who I am
I've seen many searching for answers far and wide
But I know we're all searching
For answers only you provide
'Cause you know just what we need
Before we say a word
You're a good good father
It's who you are, it's who you are, it's who you are
And I'm loved by you
It's who I am, it's who I am, it's who I am
Because you are perfect in all of your ways
You are perfect in all of your ways
You are perfect in all of your ways to us
You are perfect in all of your ways
You are perfect in all of your ways
You are perfect in all of your ways to us
Oh, it's love so undeniable
I, I can hardly speak
Peace so unexplainable
I, I can hardly think
As you call me deeper still
As you call me deeper still
As you call me deeper still
Into love, love, love
You're a good good father
It's who you are, it's who you are, it's who you are
And I'm loved by you
It's who I am, it's who I am, it's who I am
You're a good good father
It's who you are, it's who you are, it's who you are
And I'm loved by you
It's who I am, it's who I am, it's who I am
You're a good good father
It's who you are, it's who you are, it's who you are
And I'm loved by you
It's who I am, it's who I am, it's who I am
You're a good good father
You are perfect in all of your ways
It's who you are, it's who you are, it's who you are
And I'm loved by you
You are perfect in all of your ways
It's who I am, it's who I am, it's who I am

I see "The Servant King" is up on the side banner. This is one of the more significant modern hymns that I have come to know in recent years. Covers the gospel and the charge to serve one another in one short poem/song. It should be sung often, and especially at every Easter service, preferably at the closing to send us out to serve.

I can't take any credit for referring these songs, Unto Him. I've just been posting songs I've heard in church lately. Great Christ-centered music, so I like to share here.

Where do you think I get most of the songs/hymns I post? Mostly from some great Christian radio and some from Sun morning worship service. There is great Christian radio station in my metro area. They are very eclectic in their selections - all the way from "Old Time Gospel Hour" selections (usually not my cup of tea) all the way to some pretty "rockish" stuff (usually not my cup of tea either) - but it's the 90% of selections in between that are so glorious and uplifting. The one you've referred today is by Charlie Hall. I discovered Charlie's music on this station and have posted a number of his songs/hymns on the forum. This station also plays a number of good daily/weekly things from various Christians teachers such a Ravi Zacharias.

This station is online off course. Anyone is welcome to send me a PM and I'll let you know their website which plays 24/7.

Default Re: Because He Lives I can face Tomorrow

https://www.google.com/webhp?sourcei...use+he+lives&*


God sent His son, they called Him, Jesus;
He came to love, heal and forgive;
He lived and died to buy my pardon,
An empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives!

Chorus
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone,
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living,
Just because He lives!

How sweet to hold a newborn baby,
And feel the pride and joy he brings;
But greater still the calm assurance:
This child can face uncertain days because He Lives!

Chorus
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living,
Just because He lives!

And then one day, I'll cross the river,
I'll fight life's final war with pain;
And then, as death gives way to victory,
I'll see the lights of glory and I'll know He lives!

Chorus
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living,
Just because He lives!

Great, inspiring song, Indiana. My church sings "Because He Lives" to a different tune. I didn't know Bill Gaither sang this with this tune. It is beautifully done.

A song my community church in another locality sang a lot came to me after some more time considering Christ as the light of life, and he as our life shining through us to enlighten dark and dying world crying for a savior.

Here I am to Worship - Michael W Smith

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=6aEhXBEUnZU with Lyrics

Jesus is the light of life John 8:12 NASB
Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”

In Matthew 5, Jesus says his followers would be the light of the world as a city set on a hill. At other times he challenged his followers to not be those who hid their lamps under baskets and to keep their eyes pure as the lamps of their bodies.

Today's Listen Up "Child Come Home" by Dennis Jernigan is a sweet reminder of where we can always return. Our real home during our sojourn in a land that isn't our home is the Father's house.

"Shout to the Lord' written by Chris Tomlin in 1998 has been a staple of many Christian churches' worship times for many years. I'm pretty sure it has been the Listen Up here before. My memory is fuzzy about that.

This morning I enjoyed playing it on my ipad during breakfast and shouting to the Lord with my wife.

Enjoy again

Ironic that churches sing a song about shouting to the Lord and many churches sing that - they sing about shouting but they don't actually do it. They sing about many things they don't actually do.

But if you actually shout to the Lord in those churches like we do in the Lord's Recovery you would be likely kicked out.

To God Be The Glory, EV. Got a great local church hymn that lifts our eyes and hearts to our Savior God? This is the place for it. Please share! We could use some more contributors.

I had the same critical thought you just expressed when I was in TLC. But, God broadened my narrow heart to see my brothers and sisters singing with all of their heart to the Lord. So, I shout to the Lord with them as we sing, and enjoy His wonderful presence. Have a great week

Nice to learn the last song posted here was by John Newton, and see YouTube has some alternative versions of it.

Now maybe someone can help find a better recording of: O, Christ in thee my soul hath found - Francis Bevan

Ponder anew what the almighty can do when first with His love he befriend thee...

Let the amen sound from His people again!

Lines from Joakim Neander's hymn "Praise to the Lord the Almighty the King of Creation" ... an inspiration to me this morning.

He Hideth my Soul words by Fanny Crosby in 1890, music by William J. Kirkpatrick

video: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Rx0Whauttqk

Words:

A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord,
A wonderful Savior to me;
He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock,
Where rivers of pleasure I see.
Refrain
He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock
That shadows a dry, thirsty land;
He hideth my life with the depths of His love,
And covers me there with His hand,
And covers me there with His hand.
A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord,
He taketh my burden away;
He holdeth me up, and I shall not be moved,
He giveth me strength as my day.
Refrain
With numberless blessings each moment He crowns,
And filled with His fullness divine,
I sing in my rapture, oh, glory to God
For such a Redeemer as mine!
Refrain
When clothed in His brightness, transported I rise
To meet Him in clouds of the sky,
His perfect salvation, His wonderful love
I’ll shout with the millions on high.
Refrain

This song isn't a praise or worship song, but a song of encouragement and exhortation.

Live Like You're Loved - by Hawk Nelson

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=IfHyAMjLLdA

I've been hearing it a lot on Christian radio. It makes me stop and appreciate what I have in Christ (God's wonderful love). Drop living in fear or condemnation, and live in the freedom that comes in Christ my savoir. Please share what you think about it, and what you get out of it.

JJ, sory for late reply.
Thanks for posting this wonderful song:

Live like you're loved

My thoughts can be summed up nicely in these lyrics:
"So go ahead and be who he made you to be"

It really brings out the truth that God wants to be so much more than just "building material" for the visible church, or any institute of man. He cares about us as individuals.

Thanks again for you're valuable contribution to our little forum, especially for your song/hymn references. Christian music has been a great help and joy in my "recovery from the Recovery", which is still an ongoing process after 20+ years. I also enjoy Christian radio immensely. Sure, there is a lot of junk out there, but if you find the right station it can be a source of great joy and edification.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts Unto Him. Part of laying a 'straight stick' of truth for comparison is to share the joy of Jesus and his incredible salvation in songs of praise. I'm glad to contribute, and hope to encourage the saints of God here, .... and build the digital song book for future reference.

Yesterday's Listen Up would be good to preserve here. I enjoyed it a lot.

Today's Listen Up has Fernando Ortega singing part of Rock of Ages, Cleft for Me

ihttps://m.youtube.com/watch?v=UHx005n1-

Wonderful Song! Here is more detail

Text: Augustus M. Toplady, 1740-1778
Music: Thomas Hastings, 1784-1872


Words

1. Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
let me hide myself in thee;
let the water and the blood,
from thy wounded side which flowed,
be of sin the double cure;
save from wrath and make me pure.

2. Not the labors of my hands
can fulfill thy law's commands;
could my zeal no respite know,
could my tears forever flow,
all for sin could not atone;
thou must save, and thou alone.

3. Nothing in my hand I bring,
simply to the cross I cling;
naked, come to thee for dress;
helpless, look to thee for grace;
foul, I to the fountain fly;
wash me, Savior, or I die.

4. While I draw this fleeting breath,
when mine eyes shall close in death,
when I soar to worlds unknown,
see thee on thy judgment throne,
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
let me hide myself in thee.
