So as I enjoy writing Christian music in a variety of styles in a hobbyist capacity, I find that the congregational worship song is tough to write properly for congregational singing.  So here is another attempt at writing a suitable worship song, one that I wrote with a local friend of mine (Shelly Head).  The song title, "Crimson King".   

Please take a moment to listen to the song at SoundCloud at   

Below are the lyrics and chords.

Let me know your thoughts and if you think this works as a congregational worship song.  Thank you!

Crimson King

Brian Lawson and Shelly Head 3/12/18  (Rev 9/10/18)

Verse 1:

 D                G/D                D

Jesus, Your nail pierced hands    (are)

        Bm7  Asus    G2

So, Beautiful to me

D               G/D                   D

Jesus, Your nail pierced hands    (are)

          Bm7    Asus     G2

Such proof of love for me


G                           A

Jesus, wounded healer


Bled to save us

           Bm// Asus//

Died for me,     (oh)

G                         A

Jesus, Scarlet Savior


My  Redeemer

      Bm7 -     Asus  G

Crimson King   Crimson King

Verse 2:

Jesus, the blood you poured out

Washed my sins at Calvary

Jesus, the blood you poured out

Raised this life, now I’m redeemed


G                                                  Bm

Oh how marvelous,    Oh how wonderful

D                                      A

Is your blood, Your cleansing blood

Em7                          Bm

Oh how marvelous,  Oh how wonderful

D                               A

Is your blood, Your cleansing blood

Nice song Brian and thanks for sharing! I think this would definitely work for corporate worship.

The annual songwriting contest is coming... hint, hint. :)

Thanks Nathan. Like last year, my reasons not to enter this contest stand. One reason at least with this song is that it needs a better recording, but the other reasons would overrule that anyway. Thanks for listening and your feedback!

There are some really well-phrased lines in here. “Wounded healer”... great picture of our King! I could definitively enter into worship singing this! Well done! Take it to the studio, sir. 

God bless

Thank you for your thoughts and time listening.   I don't know what kind of recording will get accomplished, but in the meantime, feel free to use and try it out in your church if you are leading worship. 

Lovely this song, the words.
