Song Ideas for 19th Sunday in OT
Lord, Let Us See Your Kindness by Aaron Thompson (WLP)
*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, the Holy One is here” —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. (Gathering Song / Song of Preparation / Communion)
Build My Life by Younker/Martin/Kaple/Redman/Barrett (Capitol CMG/Bethel Music/CCLI) listen from SongSelect “I will put my trust in You alone. And I will not be shaken” (Song of Preparation / Communion)
Christ In Me, Arise by Trevor Thomson (spiritandsong) from the CD Christ In Me, Arise listen on YouTube “Be thou my vision…open these eyes, showing me where I must go…” (Gathering / Song of Preparation / Communion)
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 “Lead me to the silence where you whisper to my heart.” (Communion)
*Open My Eyes by Jesse Manibusan (spiritandsong) found in the collection Voices as One vol. 2 and on the CD We Will be the Light listen “Open my ears, Lord, help me to hear your voice.” (Gathering / Communion)
Our God by Tomlin/Reeves/Myrin/Redman (Capitol CMG) listen on SongSelect “And if our God is with us, then what could stand against.” —We often use this as a gathering song, and the tempo is a bit slower than you hear here. (Gathering Song / Closing Song)
Sovereign by Tomlin/Ingram/Myrin/Chalk/Redman (Capitol CMG Publishing, Chalk, Martin, Essential Music Publishing LLC/CCLI) listen from SongSelect “With me in the calm…with me in the storm.” (Song of Preparation / Communion / Closing Song)
There’s A Presence by John Angotti (WLP) from the CD I Believe and found in the collection More Voices as One vol. 1 listen “There’s a presence in this place…I can feel that you are here and you take away my fear. I believe in you.” (Communion)
We Walk by Faith by Ed Bolduc (WLP) from the CD Hymns and found in the collection More Voices as One vol. 1 listen “Help then, O Lord, our unbelief; and may our faith abound, To call on you when you are near, and seek where you are found.” (Song of Preparation / Communion)
You Make Me Brave by Amanda Cook (Bethel Music Publishing/CCLI) listen from SongSelect “You make me brave. You call me out beyond the shore into the waves.” –I’ve actually done this song with less of a ‘driving beat.‘ It works better for liturgy that way! Listen to this version or this one.
You Never Let Go by Redman (Capitol CMG/CCLI) listen from SongSelect “And even when I’m caught in the middle Of the storms of this life I won’t turn back I know You are near.” (Song of Preparation / Communion / Closing Song)
