Song of the week

I usually pick a new song for my myspace page every week. A song that's touched me. I'm thinking that maybe I will do that on here as well. I love how music touches me so deeply. Even before I was saved it was like that for me. Here's the one that's been calling to me at Journey lately. I had to look up who the artist was. Hillsong. Imagine that. Those cats can flat out write a worship song can't they? I'm not so enamored of their prosperity type ministry but I love their songs. If I had a top 10 I think they would have every slot except for a couple of Chris Tomlin and David Crowder tunes up in the mix. Anyway, without further ado, the song of the week:

You'll Come



Lyrics by Brooke Fraser

Chains be broken
Lives be healed
Eyes be opened
Christ is revealed

I have decided
I have resolved
To wait upon You Lord

My rock and Redeemer
Shield and reward
I'll wait upon You Lord

As surely as the sun will rise
You'll come to us
Certain as the dawn appears

You'll come
Let Your glory fall as You respond to us
Spirit rain
Flood into our thirsty hearts again
You'll come
You'll come

We are not shaken
We are not moved
We wait upon You Lord
Mighty deliverer
Triumph and truth
We wait upon You Lord

As surely as the sun will rise
You'll come to us
Certain as Your word endures

You'll come
Let Your glory fall as You respond to us

Spirit rain
Flood into our thirsty hearts again
You'll come
You'll come

Chains be broken
Lives be healed
Eyes be opened
Christ is revealed

What are some of your favorite worship songs?

How funny. I asked a similar question on my blog for today!

I'd never heard "You'll Come" before. It's beautiful. I also like "Mighty to Save" and "Healer" from Hillsong. Love everything from Jeremy Riddle. There are sooo many good songs. I'm trying to learn a bunch on guitar right now. "Everything" Tim Hughes, "You Never Let Go" Matt Redman. Can't list them all.

Great song. Great idea. I might try that idea out on my blog or facebook: Song of the week as I do tend to lock on to a song for several days at a time. Right now: Phil Wickham's Must I Wait and True Love.

First time on your blog, saw a comment you left on Ragamuffin Soul and thought I'd come by to say that I'm praying for you.

Oh, and my favorite worship song at the moment is With Everything from the new Hillsong album.
