Just wondering what new worship songs from this year (i.e. 2013) have caught your imagination? Is there a particular worship song that was new to you recently, but now seems like you've known it for ages? These songs are often the ones that are congregational and easy to pick up. Looking forward to seeing which new 2013 worship songs are popular amongst our members!
I love God I look to you. Such a simple great song.
Awake my Soul - Chris Tomlin,
Walk in the Promise -Jeremy Riddle,
Closer -Steffany Frizzell
Our Father - Bethel Live
Here's a new one we've been doing - New Creation
I'm really enjoying 'One Thing Remains' by Brian Johnson:
Our 5 most recent:...
Whom Shall I Fear (God of Angel Armies) - Chris Tomlin
10,000 Reasons - Matt Redman
Where the Spirit of the Lord is - Chris Tomlin/Christy Nockels
I Belong - Kathryn Scott
Reaching For You - Lincoln Brewster
Our next new one will be "One Thing Remains" - Jesus Culture
God My Rock [Brenton Brown] - very easy to learn, very catchy, very engaging .. but pattern after *this* acoustic version rather than the big-arena-sounding album version: http://www.worshiptogether.com/songs/songdetail.aspx?iid=1963145
Be Lifted High [Elevation Worship] - another catchy, stick-with-ya song. (I like things our congregation walks about singing) ... again, pattern after an acoustic version, found here: http://www.elevationworship.com/album/be-lifted-high-acoustic-perfo...
What I Want [City Harmonic] - videos and chord charts here: http://thecityharmonic.com/video-2/
I've really come to love leading Daniel Bashta's "Praise the Invisible" - it's an instant 'classic'... powerful, Biblical lyrics - easy to sing & play... really solid.
My friend David Walker wrote/recorded "Beautiful Rescuer" which is a lovely modern hymn... very powerful
Alex Nifong (formerly responsible for the popular rewrite of "Jesus Paid it All", & played guitar on "Happy Day" & "Beautiful One" by Tim Hughes) has released an excellent, fist-pumping anthem in "Already Won"
And, if I might say so, I've had a successful year leading/introducing my original song, "Your Will", co-written with Gary Durbin, McKendree Augustas, & Bobby Gilles... the chords are currently being added in CCLI Song Select, so it's been requested a lot. I love that I co-wrote it because so much of it isn't my song that I can lead it as though someone else penned it - it's dear to my heart, but I don't easier grow burned out on it!
Though it's basically a simple chorus, Jon Thurlow's "All that's Inside" has been VERY popular with our youth...
And, lastly, Chris Tomlin's "Whom Shall I Fear (God of Angel Armies)" is Tomlin at his best.
Our Great God (Heath Balltzglier) and No One Higher (Seth Condrey) are both new to me and full of fresh, dynamic expression.
