Death and hell call him Victorious!Here’s the line that grabbed me:

Death and hell call Him victorious….

What a great thought.
What a triumphant declaration!

I’m always on the lookout for songs that lift the heart in praise and help us to think theologically. That’s a a hard recipe to get right every time. Let’s face it, not every song is going to be an “In Christ Alone.” The needle may ping more toward doxology or doctrine in a given song, but as long as it’s looking to land between the two, I’m interested. Michael FarrenKrissy Nordhoff and Riley Erin have given us a lovely and moving hymn in Oh Praise (The Only One). The song is very congregation friendly – singable, decent key, etc.. and calls us to praise while reminding us that our praise is rooted in the redemptive work of Christ. I’m looking forward to sharing it with our congregation this month.  It does have the obligatory (these days) “whoaaah whoaaah” section which you keep or let go depending on your aversion to things whoawoey. Lyrics are below along with a video of a live session that really invites you to worship along.  This week the We Are Worship website is offering free downloads of the sheet music and mp3 so go get it now.

There is no greater truth than this
There is no stronger love we know
God Himself comes down to live
And make a sinner’s heart his throne

There is no deeper peace than this
No other kindness can compare
He clothes us in His righteousness
Forever free, forever heirs

Oh praise the only One
Who shines brighter than ten thousand suns
Death and hell call Him victorious
Praise Him
Oh praise the One true King
Lift it loud till earth and heaven ring
Every crown we down at His feet
Praise Him

There is no sweeter joy than this
There is no stronger hope we hold
We are His forever more
Safe, secure by Christ alone

There is no sound that’s like the song
That rises up from grateful saints
We once were lost but now we’re found
One with Him, we bear His name

I love these folks! Here’s a video of the song “Mediator” from Ghost Ship’s new collection called “The Good King.” (Bands do love the iconic roof top performance don’t they?)

GhostShip_TheGoodKing_AlbumCoverMediator

He takes our place and stands in front of God on high
He speaks on our behalf since we don’t have the right
He pleads before the God who judges hearts of men
Our mediator served the sentence for our sin
There is only one God
There is only one mediator
Standing between God and man
He’s the only way to salvation
He found the captives, broke the bondage of our chains

 

We have redemption through the price that he has paid
He gave his life to purchase freedom from the Fall
Our mediator was the ransom for us all
The man Jesus Christ
Who gave us his life
The man Jesus Christ
The last sacrifice
The eternal Son
He was, he is, he is to come
Messiah has come
He was, he is, he is to come

The true Son of Man
He was, he is now on his throne
The atonement Lamb

Vineyard - Promises of WonderWithout question, the Vineyard churches and their artists have made an indelible mark on the worship of the church around the world.  Just consider the following:

  • Hosanna by Carl Tuttle
  • More Love, More Power – Jude Del Hierro
  • Change My Heart O God
  • Spirit Song and Isn’t He – John Wimber
  • Holy and Anointed One – John Barnett
  • We Will Dance – David Ruis
  • Refiner’s Fire – Brian Doerksen
  • Take My Life – Scott Underwood
  • Let the River Flow – Darrell Evans
  • In the Secret – Andy Park

That’s just a sample of the older stuff! My list could go and on. They continue to write and produce music that is worshipful and easily accessible for most churches to play with a small to medium team. A new release “Promises of Wonder” continues their great tradition.

The Vineyard team is doing something with video that is a great help to those learning their songs. The videos feature lyrics and chords on the screen together. The lyrics predominate the screen area but the chords with diagrams appear in the lower right corner. How great is that? I want to commend the Vineyard folks for going out of their way to serve worship leaders by their creativity and generosity. Check out the song “High King of Heaven” from the new CD. You can download the chord chart here and follow along with the video below.

 

GREAT ARE YOU LORD
Written by: Jason Ingram, Leslie Jordan, David Leonard

You give life, You are love
You bring light to the darkness
You give hope, You restore
Every heart that is broken
Great are You, Lord

It’s Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise
We pour out our praise
It’s Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise to You only

You give life, You are love
You bring light to the darkness
You give hope, You restore
Every heart that is broken
Great are You, Lord

All the earth will shout Your praise
Our hearts will cry, these bones will sing
Great are You, Lord
