Story

Inspired by the first two verses of Psalm 9 in The Message

Lyrics

So brilliant, You are! 
So splendid, my God! 
Your glory washes over me. 

Your power is my might, 
Your essence is my light 
Consuming every part of me. 
Your love is all that I can see. 

So bright, shining all around me 
So strong, power that surrounds me 
High and Mighty God, I sing about You! 

I thank you, singing with a full heart 
I praise you, everything that you are 
Makes me want to sing, sing about You!

Story

Written for the "Jonah" series at Mount Zion Church. 

Lyrics

The Father is calling, "Come and follow Me!” 
But the choice is ours to make 

To go where He calls, To wisely choose the road 
That we will take 

I will not run from the challenge, I will not hide from the Lord 
I am ready! I am ready! I am ready, ready to follow! 

Lord, I will follow You 
I am through with the road That leads me away from You 
I’ll go where You want me to 
I am ready to follow, ready to follow You! 

Lord, when I think about Your love, How You have blessed me in my life 
The finest offering I can give Is to find a way 
to give it back, to pass it on, It’s not mine to keep, So ‘til I get home 
I am ready! I am ready! I am ready, ready to follow! 

Lord, I will follow You 
I am through with the road that leads me away from You 
I’ll go where You want me to 
I am ready to follow, ready to follow You! 

Lord, I am ready! 

Lord, I will follow Your call, 
Give You my all, 
Even if I should fall!

Inspired by Psalm 67 in The Message

Lyrics

We bear Your mark 
We wear Your name 
Your will, our hearts 
One and the same 

So all will know 
We have seen Your face 
We pray, O God 
Mark us with grace 

To wear Your crown 
To win Your prize 
To be found faithful 
In Your eyes 

Show us Your favor 
As we run this race 
We wait O God 
Mark us with grace 

Pour Your blessing on us 
The world will know 
We are Yours, we are Yours 

Lord, Your glory will shine 
Shine in us! 

Our hearts’ desire 
Our deepest prayer 
Your love to show 
Your cross to bear 

And as we strive 
To give our lives away 
We pray O God 
Mark us with grace 

Pour Your blessing on us 
The world will know 
We are Yours, we are Yours 

Lord, Your glory will shine 
Shine in us! 

We bear Your mark 
We wear Your name 
Your will, our hearts 
One and the same 

So all will know 
We have seen Your face 
We pray, O God 
Mark us with grace

Lyrics

Speechless, lost in your power 
What can I say 
Helpless to describe who you are 
Try as, try as I may 

Who am I that You should stop to hear 
Still You draw near 
Still You draw near 

Higher, Deeper 
Faithful to the last 
Giver, Keeper 
More than I could hope or ask 
You are everything to me. 

Bowing, humbly I bring 
A small gift of praise 
Daunting to play for the King 
Author of Days 

Who am I that You should stop to hear 
Still You draw near 
Still You draw near 

Higher, Deeper 
Faithful to the last 
Giver, Keeper 
More than I could hope or ask 
You are everything so 

Feed me, fill me, 
Water to my soul 
Help me, heal me 
You are all I need to know 
You are everything to me

Story

Classic hymn with a little extra.

Lyrics

O for a thousand tongues to sing 
Blessed be the name of the Lord! 
The glories of my God and King, 
Blessed be the name of the Lord! 

Blessed be the name, blessed be the name 
Blessed be the name of the Lord! 
Blessed be the name, blessed be the name 
Blessed be the name of the Lord! 

Jesus, the name that calms my fears 
Blessed be the name of the Lord! 
‘Tis music in the sinner’s ears 
Blessed be the name of the Lord! 

Blessed, blessed be Your name! 

I never shall forget that day 
Blessed be the name of the Lord! 
When Jesus washed my sins away 
Blessed be the name of the Lord! 

Blessed be the name, blessed be the name 
Blessed be the name of the Lord! 
Blessed be the name, blessed be the name 
Blessed be the name of the Lord! 

Blessed, blessed be Your name!

Story

Inspired by Psalm 63 in The Message.  One of my favorite worship songs.

Lyrics

Here in the place of worship 
Still, drinking in your glory 
Thirst for you, I’m thirsty for you 

Lips pouring praise in fountains 
Hands waving winds of worship 
In you I live, Because of you I am living 

I bless you every time I breathe 
Fill this heart, fill my heart, 
As I’m pouring it out to you 

Oh Breath of Life, flow through me, 
You flow through me 
So I bless you, I bless you 
Every time I breathe 

Full! How you satisfy me! 
More than I ever hoped for! 
Songs of praise! With my mouth I will praise! 

Days basking in your brilliance 
Nights resting in your promise 
Hold me fast! You are holding me fast! 

I bless you every time I breathe 
Fill this heart, fill my heart, 
As I’m pouring it out to you 

Oh Breath of Life, flow through me, 
You flow through me 
So I bless you, I bless you 
Every time I breathe 

I bless you! I bless you! 

I bless you every time I breathe 
Fill this heart, fill my heart, 
As I’m pouring it out to you 

Oh Breath of Life, flow through me, 
You flow through me 
So I bless you, I bless you 
Every time I breathe

Story

My 13 year old niece Dove Stephens is singing the descant on this tune.

Lyrics

Lord, I ask with all humility 
That you open up Your arms to me 
Cause though the answer’s been made plain 
Since you gave me Your sweet name 
Still the knowledge almost seems too wonderful to bear 

You are my father, You are my friend 
You are my brother, my closest kin 
You are my savior, my risen Lord 
You are the mighty king, the one that I adore 

Simply now I pray You’ll help me know 
Tender places only You can show 
We will rest together there 
Still and timeless as we share 
Whispers from a Father’s heart 
Only His child can know 

You are my father, You are my friend 
You are my brother, my closest kin 
You are my savior, my risen Lord 
You are the mighty king, the one that I adore 

Abba, Father, Friend who’s closer than a 
Brother, by Your Spirit I have been adopted 
From the sting of death You came to save and rose a 
Mighty King, the One that I adore 

You are my father, You are my friend 
You are my brother, my closest kin 
You are my savior, my risen Lord 
You are the mighty king, the one that I adore 

You are my savior, my risen Lord 
You are the mighty king, the one that I adore

Story

Harkening back to our Southern and Black Gospel roots.  Worship is not about us and it's not a few-times-a-week thing; it's all the time and it's all about God.  My new friend Makenzie Little is singing with me.

Lyrics

Once more I come, Are You near?
 
Will You again meet me here 

How sure can I be that You will be pleased with my worship 



Is there some song I can sing?
 
Is there some gift I can bring?
 
Some words I can say Lord, show me the way I should worship

 

Every day I'll build 
With my heart and will 
An altar just for You
 
There I will give my life 
A living sacrifice
 

Each work of my hand, Each thought of my heart 

Devoted to honor The God that You are
 
Everything I do A true gift of worship For You

 

Calling Your name in this place 
Will I for sure see Your face
 
Lord, will this small part Come close to Your heart as I worship
 

More than my hands in the air 
More than my tears show I care
 
There's got to be more Oh please show me Lord How to worship

 

Whatever the offering You deserve more
 
No matter what others bring As for me, Lord

 

Every day I'll build 
With my heart and will 
An altar just for You
 
There I will give my life 
A living sacrifice
 

Each work of my hand, Each thought of my heart 

Devoted to honor The God that You are
 
Everything I do A true gift of worship For You

 



This is my pledge, This is my vow
 
I promise to, honor You now!

 

Every day I'll build 
With my heart and will 
An altar just for You
 
There I will give my life 
A living sacrifice
 

Each work of my hand, Each thought of my heart 

Devoted to honor The God that You are
 
Everything I do A true gift of worship For You

 



This is my pledge, This is my vow
 
I promise to, honor You now!

Story

This song came out of a simple prayer during my quite time.

Lyrics

Lord I love You and I bless Your name 
Through the years this prayer remains the same 
To the One that time will never change 
Eternal! 

For the evidence of daily grace 
Walking safely in Your strong embrace 
My desire is that You hear me say 
Forever! 

Wonderful, You are awesome and 
Wonderful, and You know that my 
Heart is full of love for You 
You are Wonderful!


Far above the world that pulls at me 
Draw my heart to Yours relentlessly 
So compelling is Your love for me 
Unending! 

I will lay aside the lesser things 
Not distracted by their murmuring 
Let Your Spirit tune my heart to sing 
Forever! 

Wonderful, You are awesome and 
Wonderful, and You know that my 
Heart is full of love for You 
You are Wonderful!

Story

The parables from Luke 15.  Also one of my favorites. I love this one.  Great cello work.

Lyrics

A bride 
Lights a lamp and searches every corner 
For her prize, 
A wedding gift intended to adorn her 
She will never give up ‘til it’s found 

His eyes 
Gaze upon his sheep safe in pasture 
He hears a cry 
Runs to save the one who’s near disaster 
He will never give up ‘til it’s found 

So it goes, all around 
Hopeless souls, few are found 

There is someone’s prize, there is someone’s child 
There is someone’s loved one lost in the wil 
We must search and pray ‘til they’re reconciled 
To the one who seeks 
The Coin, The Sheep, and The Son 

Ever since 
his youngest son had wandered down that highway 
For just a glimpse 
The father waits and watches just one more day 
He will never give up ‘til he’s home 

So it goes, all around 
Hopeless souls, few are found 
But what of us who are homeward bound? 
Will we search, will we shine? 

You and me 
Were like that coin and sheep ‘til someone found us 
How can we 
Close our eyes and hearts to those around us? 
We must never give up ‘til they’re home, 
we must never give up 

There is someone’s prize, there is someone’s child 
There is someone’s loved one lost in the wil 
We must search and pray ‘til they’re reconciled 
To the one who seeks 
The Coin, The Sheep, and The Son
