Wednesday’s Worship – August 19, 2015

Today’s worship is inspired by Matthew 11:28 – Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”



Back to Life by Hillsong Young & Free

Here in my heart You have found Your place/Replacing fear with Your freedom/You lift me up/You lift me up

When all seems lost in my brokenness/I call Your Name and You answer/Held by Your love/Held by Your love

In the night/Through the struggle, through the trial/You have made my burden light/You have brought me back to life, again

Your love, it wipes every tear away/You calm the storms that surround me/You carry me/You carry me

Your light breaks through in my darkest hour/Your love is strong in my weakness/You are enough/You are enough

You won’t let go/So I will follow/All I am/Yours now and forever/You won’t let go/So I will follow/With all I am

In the night/Through the struggle, through the trial/You have made my burden light/You have brought me back to life, again

You won’t let go/So I will follow/All I am/Yours now and forever/You won’t let go/So I will follow/With all I am [repeat]

In the night/Through the struggle, through the trial/You have made my burden light/You have brought me back to life, again


Alive sung by Kim Walker

You breathe Your life into my lungs/You bring to life these dry bones/I know that You’re alive

You call me one of Your own/In my heart You made Your home/I know that You’re alive

I’m coming alive

You call me one of Your own/In my heart You made Your home/I know that You’re alive

I’m coming alive/I’m coming alive/I’m coming alive

We will make Him known/Jesus is alive/He’s alive/We will shout it out/Jesus is alive/He’s alive

To all the dry and weary souls/Take joy, take heart, be filled with hope/I know that He’s alive

To all the ones who have no home/Get up and run/We’re going home/I know that He’s alive

I’m coming alive/I’m coming alive/I’m coming alive

We will make Him known/Jesus is alive/He’s alive/We will shout it out/Jesus is alive/He’s alive

It may get loud/The grave is empty now/It may get wild/His love is like no other [repeat]

We will make Him known/Jesus is alive/He’s alive/We will shout it out/Jesus is alive/He’s alive [repeat]


Relentless by Hillsong UNITED

Salvation sounds a new beginning/As distant hearts begin believing/Redemption’s bid is unrelenting/Your love goes on/Your love goes on

You carry us/Carry us/When the world gives way/You cover us/Cover us/With Your endless grace

Your love is relentless/Your love is relentless/Your love is relentless/Your love is relentless

The time is up for chasing shadows/You gave the world a Light to follow/A Hope that shines beyond tomorrow/Your love goes on/Your love goes on

You carry us/Carry us/When the world gives way/You cover us/Cover us/With Your endless grace

Your love is relentless/Your love is relentless/Your love is relentless/Your love is relentless

Tearing through the veil of darkness/Breaking every chain/You set us free/Fighting for the furthest heart/You gave Your life [repeat]

Your love is relentless/Your love is relentless/Your love is relentless/Your love is relentless


Come to Me by Bethel Music

I Am the Lord your God/I go before you now/I stand beside you/I’m all around you/Though you feel I’m far away/I’m closer than your breath/I am with you/More than you know

I Am the Lord your peace/No evil will conquer you/Steady now your heart and mind/Come into my rest/Oh, let your faith arise/Lift up your weary head/I am with you wherever you go

Come to Me, I’m all you need/Come to Me, I’m everything/Come to Me, I’m all you need/Come to Me, I’m everything

I Am your anchor/In the wind and the waves/I am your steadfast/So don’t be afraid/Though your heart and flesh may fail you/I’m your faithful strength/I am with you wherever you go

Come to Me, I’m all you need/Come to Me, I’m everything/Come to Me, I’m all you need/Come to Me, I’m everything

**Note: Personally, I like to change the lyrics of this song, so that I’m singing directly to God. For instance, I sing: “You Are the Lord my God/You go before me now/You stand beside me/You’re all around me…” I also think it would be beautiful to sing it once through the original way and then follow with our response, as though singing to Him; similar to Song of Solomon.


Unashamed Love sung by Lamont Hierbert

You’re calling me to lay aside the worries of my day/To quiet down my busy mind and find a hiding place/Worthy/You are worthy

I open up my heart and let my spirit worship Yours/Open up my mouth and let a song of praise come forth/Worthy/You are worthy

Of a childlike faith/And of my honest praise/And of my unashamed love/Of a holy life/And of my sacrifice/And of my unashamed love

You’re calling me to lay aside the worries of my day/To quiet down my busy mind and find a hiding place/Worthy/You are worthy

I open up my heart and let my spirit worship Yours/Open up my mouth and let a song of praise come forth/Worthy/You are worthy

Of a childlike faith/And of my honest praise/And of my unashamed love/Of a holy life/And of my sacrifice/And of my unashamed love [repeat]

Worthy/You are worthy/Worthy/You are worthy

Wednesday’s Worship – August 12, 2015

Today’s worship is inspired by John 16:33: “I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”



This is How We Overcome by Hillsong Worship

Your light broke through my night/Restored exceeding joy/Your grace fell like the rain/And made this desert live

You have turned my mourning into dancing/You have turned my sorrow into joy

Your hand lifted me up/I stand on higher ground/Your praise rose in my heart/And made this valley sing

You have turned my mourning into dancing/You have turned my sorrow into joy/You have turned my mourning into dancing/You have turned my sorrow into joy

This is how we overcome/This is how we overcome/This is how we overcome/This is how we overcome [repeat]

You have turned my mourning into dancing/You have turned my sorrow into joy/You have turned my mourning into dancing/You have turned my sorrow into joy


Trading My Sorrows written by Darrell Evans

I’m trading my sorrows/I’m trading my shame/I’m laying them down/For the joy of the Lord

I’m trading my sickness/I’m trading my pain/I’m laying them down/For the joy of the Lord

We say yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord/Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord/Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord/Amen

I am pressed but not crushed/Persecuted, not abandoned/Struck down, but not destroyed/I am blessed beyond the curse/For His promise will endure/That His joy’s gonna be my strength

Though the sorrow may last for the night/His joy comes with the morning

I’m trading my sorrows/I’m trading my shame/I’m laying them down/For the joy of the Lord

I’m trading my sickness/I’m trading my pain/I’m laying them down/For the joy of the Lord

We say yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord/Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord/Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord/Amen [repeat]

I am pressed but not crushed/Persecuted, not abandoned/Struck down, but not destroyed/I am blessed beyond the curse/For His promise will endure/That His joy’s gonna be my strength

Though the sorrow may last for the night/His joy comes with the morning

I’m trading my sorrows/I’m trading my shame/I’m laying them down/For the joy of the Lord

I’m trading my sickness/I’m trading my pain/I’m laying them down/For the joy of the Lord


Desert Song by Hillsong UNITED

This is my prayer in the desert/When all that’s within me feels dry/This is my prayer in my hunger and need/My God is the God who provides

And this is my prayer in the fire/In weakness or trial or pain/There is a faith proved/Of more worth than gold/So refine me Lord through the flames

And I will bring praise/I will bring praise/No weapon formed against me shall remain/I will rejoice/I will declare/God is my victory and He is here

And this is my prayer in the battle/When triumph is still on its way/I am a conqueror and co-heir with Christ/So firm on His promise I’ll stand

I will bring praise/I will bring praise/No weapon formed against me shall remain/I will rejoice/I will declare/God is my victory and He is here

All of my life/In every season/You are still God/I have a reason to sing/I have a reason to worship [repeat]

And I will bring praise/I will bring praise/No weapon formed against me shall remain/I will rejoice/I will declare/God is my victory and He is here

This is my prayer in the harvest/When favor and providence flow/I know I’m filled to be emptied again/The seed I’ve received I will sow


For the Lamb by Elevation Worship

On a shameful day He died/In the sorrow of defeat/But forgiveness was His cry/As His blood ran down for me

How the Father’s heart was torn/As His only son was slain/But the earth would soon rejoice/From the place where hope was lain

For the Lamb has overcome/Everlasting love has won/In eternal praise we will lift Him up/For the Lamb has overcome the world

By His spirit we are raised/To the fullness of new life/In a moment we’ll be changed/And forever glorified

For the Lamb has overcome/Everlasting love has won/In eternal praise we will lift Him up/For the Lamb has overcome the world

Most high and lifted up/Be glorified forever/Jesus has overcome/Declare it now together [repeat]

For the Lamb has overcome/Everlasting love has won/In eternal praise we will lift Him up/For the Lamb has overcome the world [repeat]

Most high and lifted up/Be glorified forever/Jesus has overcome/Declare it now together [repeat]


Freedom Reigns by Jesus Culture

Where the spirit of the Lord is/There is freedom/Where the spirit of the Lord is/There is freedom

Lift your eyes to heaven/There is freedom/Lift your eyes to heaven/There is freedom

Freedom reigns in this place/Showers of mercy and grace/Falling on every face/There is freedom

If you’re tired and thirsty/There is freedom/If you’re tired and thirsty/There is freedom

Give your all to Jesus/There is freedom/Give your all to Jesus/There is freedom

Freedom reigns in this place/Showers of mercy and grace/Falling on every face/There is freedom

Jesus reigns in this place/Showers of mercy and grace/Falling on every face/There is freedom

Freedom reigns in this place/Showers of mercy and grace/Falling on every face/There is freedom

Great is Your faithfulness/Great is Your faithfulness/Great is Your faithfulness

Freedom reigns in this place/Showers of mercy and grace/Falling on every, every face/There is freedom

**Note: I know she continues to sing, but these are really the primary lyrics to the song. 

Wednesday’s Worship – July 29, 2015

Today’s worship is inspired by Matthew 9:37-38: Then He said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field.”



Days of Elijah written by Robin Mark

These are the days of Elijah/Declaring the Word of the Lord/And these are the days of Your servant, Moses/Righteousness being restored

These are the days of great trials/Of famine and darkness and sword/Still we are the voice in the desert crying/Prepare ye the way of the Lord

Behold He comes/Riding on the clouds/Shining like the sun/At the trumpet’s call/Lift Your voice/It’s the year of jubilee/And out of Zion’s hill salvation comes

And these are the days of Ezekiel/The dry bones becoming as flesh/And these are the days of Your servant, David/Rebuilding the temple of praise

And these are the days of the harvest/The fields are all white in the world/And we are the laborers in Your vineyard/Declaring the Word of the Lord

Behold He comes/Riding on the clouds/Shining like the sun/At the trumpet’s call/Lift Your voice/It’s the year of jubilee/And out of Zion’s hill salvation comes [repeat]

There’s no God like Jehovah [repeat]

Behold He comes/Riding on the clouds/Shining like the sun/At the trumpet’s call/Lift Your voice/It’s the year of jubilee/And out of Zion’s hill salvation comes [repeat]


Hear Our Praises by Hillsong Worship

May our homes be filled with dancing/May our streets be filled with joy/May injustice bow to Jesus/As the people turn to pray

From the mountains to the valleys/Hear our praises rise to You/From the heavens to the nations/Hear our singing fill the air

May Your light shine in the darkness/As we walk before the cross/May Your glory fill the whole earth/As the water o’er the seas

From the mountains to the valleys/Hear our praises rise to You/From the heavens to the nations/Hear our singing fill the air [repeat]

Hallelujah [repeat]

From the mountains to the valleys/Hear our praises rise to You/From the heavens to the nations/Hear our singing fill the air


Tear Down The Walls by Hillsong UNITED

Tear down the walls/See the world/Is there something we have missed/Turn from ourselves/Look beyond/There is so much more than this

And I don’t need to see it to believe it/I don’t need to see it to believe it/’Cause I can’t shake this fire deep inside my heart

Look to the skies/Hope arise/See His majesty revealed/More than this life/There is love/There is hope and this is real

And I don’t need to see it to believe it/I don’t need to see it to believe it/’Cause I can’t shake this fire burning deep inside my heart

This life is Yours and hope is rising/As Your glory floods our hearts/Let love tear down these walls/That all creation would come back to You/It’s all for You

Your Name is glorious/Glorious/Your love is/Changing us/Calling us to worship/In spirit and in truth/As all creation returns to You

For all the sons and daughters/Who are walking in the darkness/You are calling us to lead them back to You/We will see Your Spirit rising/As the lost come out of hiding/Every heart will see this hope we have in You

And I don’t need to see it to believe it/I don’t need to see it to believe it/’Cause I can’t shake this fire burning deep inside my heart

This life is Yours and hope is rising/As Your glory floods our hearts/Let love tear down these walls/That all creation would come back to You/It’s all for You

God of this City sung by Chris Tomlin

You’re the God of this city/You’re the King of these people/You’re the Lord of this nation/You are

You’re the Light in the darkness/You’re the Hope to the hopeless/You’re the Peace to the restless/You are

There is no one like our God/There is no one like our God

For greater things have yet to come/Greater things are still to be done in this city/For greater things have yet to come/Greater things are still to be done in this city

Hosanna by Hillsong UNITED

I see the King of glory/Coming on the clouds with fire/The whole earth shakes/The whole earth shakes

I see His love and mercy/Washing over all our sin/The people sing/The people sing

Hosanna/Hosanna/Hosanna in the highest/Hosanna/Hosanna/Hosanna in the highest

I see a near revival/Stirring as we pray and seek/We’re on our knees/We’re on our knees

Hosanna/Hosanna/Hosanna in the highest/Hosanna/Hosanna/Hosanna in the highest

Heal my heart and make it clean/Open up my eyes to the things unseen/Show me how to love like You have loved me

Break my heart for what breaks Yours/Everything I am for Your kingdom’s cause/As I walk from earth into eternity

Hosanna/Hosanna/Hosanna in the highest/Hosanna/Hosanna/Hosanna in the highest [repeat]

Wednesday’s Worship – July 15, 2015

Welcome to my new series! I’ve been trying to figure out a way that I could incorporate my love of worship into this blog and share great worship songs with you; and this week it finally hit me! I’ve finally begun to set up my YouTube channel where you’ll be able to find playlists with each week’s worship set. I’ll also provide the lyrics for each song and links for the chord charts, if I can find them.


The verse that inspired this week’s playlist is Psalm 27:8: My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” Your face, LORD, I will seek.

Touch the Sky

by Hillsong UNITED

What fortune lies beyond the stars/Those dazzling heights too vast to climb/I got so high to fall so far/But I found heaven as love swept low

My heart beating/My soul breathing/I found my life/When I laid it down/Upward falling/Spirit soaring/I touch the sky/When my knees hit the ground

What treasure waits within Your scars/This gift of freedom gold can’t buy/I bought the world and sold my heart/You traded heaven to have me again

My heart beating/My soul breathing/I found my life/When I laid it down/Upward falling/Spirit soaring/I touch the sky/When my knees hit the ground

Find me here at Your feet again/Everything I am/Reaching out/I surrender/Come sweep me up in Your love again/And my soul will dance/On the wings of forever [repeat]

My heart beating/My soul breathing/I found my life/When I laid it down/Upward falling/Spirit soaring/I touch the sky/When my knees hit the ground [3x’s]

Find me here at Your feet again/Everything I am/Reaching out/I surrender/Come sweep me up in Your love again/And my soul will dance/On the wings of forever

Upward falling/Spirit soaring/I touch the sky/When my knees hit the ground


Pursue

by Hillsong Young & Free

I close my eyes to see/My king in majesty/Your grace compels my soul/To love and draw in close/I lift my hands and sing/Surrender everything/In You I know I’m found/My God, to You I’ll bow

Now until forever/Jesus, I surrender/Show me what I don’t know/More of You/I’m desperate for Your presence/Longing to be with You/Lead me to a new place/More of You

I’ll persevere/I won’t submit to anything/Where I’ll go you’ve been before/All my trust is in you Lord

Now until forever/Jesus, I surrender/Show me what I don’t know/More of You/I’m desperate for your presence/Longing to be with You/Lead me to a new place/More of You

Lead me to You/Forever, Lord, I will pursue/I will pursue/You’ve won my heart/Jesus, You’re all that I want/All that I want

Now until forever/Jesus, I surrender/Show me what I don’t know/More of You/I’m desperate for Your presence/Longing to be with You/Lead me to a new place/More of You
