They’ve got an album availble called Permanent City

Easter Worship – Behold Our God (free download at We Are Worship)

April 28, 2015

One of my favorite worship songs in my Easter playlist is Sovereign Grace Music’s song Behold Our God, from their 2011 album Risen.  Their recording of the song happens to be free this week at WeAreWorship (free MP3, free chord chart, and free PDF sheet music).  Joining We Are Worship is free, and it’s a wonderful source of excellent worship music, with free downloads every week.  I’m posting a YouTube below which melds wonderful pictures of creation with Sovereign Grace’s version of the song.

I do have to say though that even though I love the original version of this song by Sovereign Grace, my favorite version of this song is the live recording from the Falls Church Anglican worship CD A Thousand Amens.   The combination of this song, followed by Praise My Soul the King of Heaven is just utterly majestic (you’ve got to hear the organ instrumental between the two songs.  I still get chills….).  I can’t recommend those two tracks highly enough.  Contemporary Anglican worship at its best!!

Here are the lyrics:

Who has held the oceans in His hands
Who has numbered every grain of sand
Kings and nations tremble at His voice
All creation rises to rejoice

Behold our God seated on His throne
Come let us adore Him
Behold our King nothing can compare
Come let us adore Him

Who has given counsel to the Lord
Who can question any of His words
Who can teach the One who knows all things
Who can fathom all His wondrous deeds

Who has felt the nails upon His hand
Bearing all the guilt of sinful man
God eternal humbled to the grave
Jesus Savior risen now to reign

You will reign forever
(Let Your glory fill the earth)
(REPEAT 6X)
You will reign forever
(Let Your glory fill)

Music for your weekend worship [Free download!]

October 18, 2014

I love the Weareworship sites in the US and the UK which feature several free MP3 downloads each week.  At the UK site this week they’re offering a wonderful new Stuart Townend/ Keith Getty adaptation of a classic William Cowper hymn.  What a great prayer for a Saturday evening and preparation for Sunday worship.  [Note you don’t have to live in the UK to join the UK version of the site or benefit from the free downloads]

Enjoy!

O for a closer walk with God
A calm and heavenly frame,
A light to shine upon the road
That leads me to the Lamb.

Where is the blessèdness I knew
When I first saw the Lord?
Where is that soul-refreshing view
Of Jesus and His word?

O Fire of God, come burn in me;
Renew a holy passion,
Till Christ my deepest longing be,
My never-failing fountain,
My never-failing fountain.

The full song is here
