Song Ideas for Second Sunday of Lent (A)
*Be Still for the Presence of the Lord by David J. Evans (Capitol CMG/CCLI) found in the collection Voices As One vol. 1 listen on YouTube “Be still for the glory of the Lord is shining all around. How awesome is the sight, our radiant King of light.” —There are many ways to arrange this song. Just search it on YouTube! The melody and lyrics stand on their own so be careful not to try and upstage them with a ‘crazy’ arrangement! The assembly will sing it and love it.
I Am Yours–Consume Me Completely by Trevor Thomson (WLP) from the CD In Shadow and In Light and found in the collection More Voices as One vol. 2 listen “Let your light shine, let it shine in my heart.”
*In the Light by Charlie Peacock (Capitol CMG/CCLI) found in the collection Voices as One vol. 2 and the CD We Will be the Light listen on SongSelect “I wanna be in the light as you are in the light.”
*Let the Weight of Your Glory Fall by Steve Merkel (Capitol CMG/CCLI) found in the collection Voices as One vol. 2 and the CD Come, Holy Spirit listen “Spirit of the sovereign Lord, come and make your presence known, reveal the glory of the living God.” —The sample of the recording you hear here is midway through the song…I would recommend that it begins much more simply, stating the melody/lyric, maybe with a single voice and having the other vocals and band join in gradually.
*Lord, I Come by Billy Funk (Capitol CMG/CCLI) found in the collection Voices as One vol. 2 and on the CD Celebrate the Feast listen “All I wanna see is the light of your glory…just one glimpse…and my soul is satisfied.”
*Open the Eyes of My Heart by Paul Baloche (Capitol CMG/CCLI) found in the collection Voices as One vol. 2 and the CD Father, We Thank Thee listen “I want to see you high and lifted up, shining in the light of your glory.”
Our God by Tomlin/Reeves/Myrin/Redman (Capitol CMG) listen on SongSelect “Into the darkness you shine. Out of the ashes we rise.” —We often use this as a gathering song, and the tempo is a bit slower than you hear here.
Turn Our Hearts Around by Trevor Thomson (WLP) from the CD In Shadow and In Light and found in the collection More Voices as One vol. 3 listen “We are tempted and we are fooled by sin’s beautiful disguise. Bring us back, turn our hearts around.”
