New Life Worship’s You Hold It All – Giveaway

284

The Worship Community is proud to present elements from the upcoming release of You Hold It All by New Life Worship.

The new album drops April 12, 2011 but you can PRE-ORDER IT NOW.

The folks at Integrity Music provided us with a downloadable chord chart AND a great behind the scenes video with Jared Anderson giving us an inside peek at the song story for Great I Am.

But first let’s take a look at the music video for Great I Am – by Jared Anderson:

Video Produce Jared Henderson commented below in our comments section in response to a reader who wanted to know why the video was in black and white:

Hey, Jared Henderson here. I was the editor and producer for the “Great I Am’ music video as well the 4 other videos that will be coming out with You Hold it All. Just wanted to give you some insight into why we went with black and white. As we were beginning to color correct these videos we had tried a few different looks and one day, on a whim, we just turned the whole thing black and white to see what it would feel like. We loved it immediately, and felt like it gave the video a mood/tone that was very appropriate and fitting. We felt like it took attention away from the lights, colors and musicians and drew us into the moment of worship that was happening that night. More than anything we want these videos to allow people to enter into a worship experience and we felt that the black and white look would contribute to making that happen.

Here’s Jared Anderson talking about the song Great I Am:

And here’s the CHART (PDF) for Great I Am.

To help spread the word about the upcoming release we’re giving away THREE (3) You Hold It All Prize packs.

Those packs will include:

  • The new You Hold It All CD
  • Accompanying digital songbook and trax
  • Fear No Evil the new book from New Life pastor Brady Boyd.

All you have to do to be eligible to win our random drawing is answer the following question in the comment section (below):

If you could choose only one lyric (line or phrase) from a worship song to sing the rest of your life, which would it be and why?

THREE (3) random comments will be selected next THURSDAY night (March 31, 2011) at Midnight Pacific/3 AM Eastern).

  1. Worship lyric: “whoa ohhh oh ooo ohhh, whoaaa ohh oh, oh oh” from “With Everything, Hillsong”

    Nah, seriously, I’d go with “In this life, as I walk these streets. Love open my eyes, show me what You see” Never Let Me Go, Hillsong United

  2. “Glorious my eyes have seen the glory of the Lord” from Glorious by Paul Baloche.. This is the time I kept on listening at the darkest time of my life and passed through seeing the Glory of our Lord

  3. For our church and me, it would be “our God is greater, our God is stronger, God, you are higher than any other. Our God is healer, awesome in power, our God, our God.” This song has always been a song our church loves to sing, but took on a special meaning for us when we sang it on a Sunday morning before our area was largely damaged by wildfires that very afternoon. It has since become somewhat of a battle cry for us as we move forward as a church and as a community. I know that I will probably sing this song for the rest of my life, and have it hold a special place in my heart because of this experience.

  4. “break my heart for what breaks yours” – Hosanna by Brooke Fraser – what a great prayer and heart desire…to love like He loves, to want to see justice for those society forgets about…great phrase.

  5. “Better is one day in your courts…than thousands elsewhere”

    I’ve become convinced that I’ll never be right, satisfied, normal, or whatever you call how we were made to feel until I’m in the presence of the Almighty God. I’m so looking forward to being with Him that you can keep all the treasures I may or may not have stored up in heaven, I’ll be happy just to clean His toilets if it means that I’ll be near Him.

    I realize that for contest purposes that I should have picked a New Life/Desperation band song, but I was going for honesty!

  6. “All of my life…in every season…You are still God…I have a reason to sing…I have a reason to worship…” Deset Song – Hillsong

  7. I would sing a lyric from David Crowder’s “O For A Thousand Tongues to Sing” –

    “There are so few words that never grow old: Jesus”

    If I can only sing one line for the rest of my life I would want it to be the name of Jesus.

    • Chris, I love it! I think there are so many songs out there that talk “about” the “name” but never actually include it in the song itself. I love to hear a song that says…Your Name is holy…..JESUS!! thanks for sharing!

  8. Douglas Hallam on

    “Holy holy holy is the Lord God Almighty who was and is and is to come!” – Jennie Lee Riddle, Revelation Song…and of course Revelation 4:8

    Because it’s good practice!

  9. Leslie Neumeyer on

    “As each day, goes past, I seek to hold, to fully grasp, Why heaven has taken hold of me”
    JEREMY RIDDLE HALLOWED FATHER LYRICS

      • Hillsong United. You hold me Now – a song I will sing until my Jesus I will see

        “One things I know that I have found Through all the troubles that surround”

        • The First Time I heard ‘EVerlasting God’ by New Life Worship I just stood there in amazement of how much passion I could inherit from words. The same applies to ‘you hold me now’

  10. Mine right now is “You are Stronger, you are stronger, sin is broken, you have saved me, it is written, Christ is risen, Jesus you are Lord of All!”

    Very powerful reminder that it is not in my strength which is never enough, but He who is stronger, He who is greater, in His strength alone can all things be accomplished.

  11. Can I have 2? I have always loved “Ruin Me” by Jeff Johnson as well. Ruin My Life, the plans I have made. Ruin desires for my own selfish gain.

    Reminds me to ask God to get me out of my way so that His way prevails.

  12. “When Christ shall come,
    With shouts of acclamation,
    And take me home,
    What joy shall fill my heart!
    Then I shall bow
    In humble adoration
    And there proclaim,
    “My God, how great Thou art!””

    I can’t wait until that day, and when I sing these lyrics, it sets my heart on eternity and reminds me of why I am called to be here and what He has called me to live for during the days He has given me on this earth. :)

  13. “Take my life and let it be, all for you and for your glory, take my life and let it be Yours.”

    A total surrendering is necessary for us to live fully as Christ followers, but at the same point, it’s also the hardest thing to do. At least for me it is. This is a constant reminder. Soli Deo Gloria!

  14. Jordan Wonderly on

    For me right now, it’s the song ‘Father’ by Hillsong United. The lyric is: ‘Father, let heaven and earth collide in the endless wonder of your love upon the cross. We will follow and offer this life forever to see your love unfold.’

    The picture this puts in my mind is of such a loving saviour. If I can love others at a fraction of what Christ did for me, then His love will be an impact through me. Exciting stuff!

  15. This may sound self-centered, but it has become a central focus for my life; from a song I wrote the words for and Eddy Mann put to music, “Overflow.”

    “Take me, use me, fill me; let me overflow with your love. And let that overflow be the water of life for those who do not know that You are God.”
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i7nOyUrPOpg

    • Not self-centered at all, Tom…in fact, I think it’s great…because ultimately God was the One who birthed those lyrics in your heart!

  16. Nikki Criscolo on

    Mine is “Greater things have yet to come, and greater things are still to be done in this city”, because of its application to reaching our community for Christ. It’s both an impetus to continue (or start) evangelism, AND a reminder not to stop early even when wonderful things are happening. It’s also very exciting and encouraging to picture just what those “greater things” are!

  18. “And When I think, that God not sparing
    Sent Him to die, i scarce can take it in”

    I hope I never loose the feeling of awe when I think of Jesus’ sacrifice.

      • Jared,
        Hey, thanks so much for stopping by! (now that you’ve visited, let’s ask you to consider a great little article here on producing/editing videos for worship!). That makes so much sense – I totally love hearing back from the creators of media – hearing the back story, the why … it makes it that much more special!

        • Jared Henderson on

          Hey Fred,
          Sorry just wanted to clarify, were you asking me to check out an article about producing vids for worship? Or actually write a little article on that?

          Jared

  22. “You are holy, great and mighty, the moon and the stars declare who You are. I’m so unworthy but still You love me, forever my heart will sing of how great You are!!”

  23. Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee, How great Thou art! How great Thou art! One of the oldest and the words say it all, what I believe every second, every minute, every day. And “great” seems like it is not the best adjective, but it works!

    It would have to be “Holy, Holy are you Lord God Almighty, Worthy is the Lamb, Worthy is the Lamb Amen!” from Agnus Dei. My favorite version is by Michael W. Smith. Just an awesome & powerful Anthem.

  27. Gustavo Rodriguez on

    Another one of my favorites is: Hallelujah, You have won the Victory. Hallelujah you have won it all for me. Death could not hold you down, you are the risen king. Seated in majesty. You are the risen King.” The Anthem by Planetshakers..

    “Anyone who calls upon His name, they will be saved”

  30. Give a little listen to Your children Lord, we sing our praise to You. Lean Your ear down over the sky and let us sing to You. We want to entertain Your presence… (the Father’s songby Carl Cartee)

    • Since you said “what lyric …for the rest of your life…” I’ll take that literally, and say, for the rest of my life here on earth it would be a TIE between “You dance over me, while I am unaware… Lord, I’m amazed by You, how You love me” by ‘our’ very own J. Anderson…when that song first came out & we were singing it @ Sat night worship one night, I literally felt (was made aware) of Jesus/HS sweeping over me…I remember afterwards thinking, this can be a daily encounter! And while I recognize the reverence/holy moment, my hearts desire was to say, this doesn’t have to be a special occasion, God help me be aware of your love for others (&for me) on a regular basis! — Tied with: “my Merciful Faithful High Priest, He lives, He lives to make intercession for me.” – by John Thurlow …. we are never without hope here on earth, He LIVES, Jesus lives to intercede on our behalf before God. Selah, for a few… (:

        • My worship lyric foreve? Easy! “Here in Your Presence, heaven and earth become one:”
          that would be mine – just think. “standing in the presence of the Almighty God, heaven and earth becoming one, that would mean He has Come BACK!!!!!!!! oh, to stand in His presence, knowing my last breath on this earth would be my first breath in heaven!

  32. Both my wife and I thought of the words “Amazing Grace”. We just don’t think that would ever get old because once we start to think we understand grace, we realize we have so much more to learn. We could worship Him for just His grace…forever!

  33. “Finally the voice I have followed for life has a glorious face that is lit up with light”
    Come For Me by Charlie Hall

    Looking for & longing for that day!

  34. This is way too hard to just pick one. But, if I have to pick I’d pick Chris Tomlin’s “Jesus Messiah”:

    Jesus Messiah, name above all names
    Blessed redeemer, Emmanuel
    The rescue for sinners, the ransom from Heaven
    Jesus Messiah, Lord of all

    That pretty much sums up who He is and how awesome He is!!

  35. “You are the everlasting God, the everlasting God, You do not faint, You won’t grow weary.” Such a reassurance in overwhelming times.

  36. “This is the day the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it!”

    Such a simple children’s song reminds me to come to Him as a child. No matter how rough we may think our day is we shall rejoice. After all, He gave us that day.

  37. Then bursting forth in glorious Day
    Up from the grave He rose again
    And as He stands in victory
    Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
    For I am His and He is mine
    Bought with the precious blood of Christ

    “In Christ Alone”

  38. ‘Break my heart for what breaks Yours…’ (Hosanna by Brooke Fraser) because I so want to be more like Jesus- to see others through His eyes.

  39. What a great song! Love it.

    I may have to go with “Who O Lord could save themselves, there own soul could heal? Our shame was deeper than the sea, Your grace is deeper still” from Matt Redman’s “You Alone Can Rescue”.

    Such a beautiful description of salvation, the foundation of our lives.

  40. The first line that came to my mind was from “Glory To God Forever” be Steve Fee and Vicky Beeching. It was “Take my life and let it be all for You, and for Your glory”. I think that says it all! If nothing else is true, I should surrender my life to Him, and let all I do be for His glory!

    Barry Westman

  41. Wow, what a powerful song. Thanks for giving us a sneak preview! My lifetime lyric would have to be:

    “My soul longs for you, my soul longs for you
    Nothing else will do, nothing else will do”

    -Misty Edwards

  42. I came to realize many years ago that no matter what my circumstances were and what was going on around me that God not only deserved my worship but also wanted my worship. In the toughest moments of my life all He was asking me was will you worship me? Will you give me your heart? I determined that I would worship Him all the days of my life and everything else will fall in to place when I put Him first. This is my life song- will you worship by Brian Doerksen.
    Will you worship, will you bow down
    Before your Lord and King?
    Will you love me, will you give me
    Your heart, your everything?
    Right here and now, I make my choice
    With all my love I will answer you

    I will worship, I will bow down
    Before my Lord and King
    I will love you, I will give you
    My heart, my everything

  43. Love ‘Break my heart for what breaks yours…’ but I can’t get away from ‘Jesus paid it all, all to him I owe. Sin had left a crimson stain, he washed it white as snow.’ Amen!

  44. I would have to go with Elevation Worship’s song, Give Me Faith. The line is, “I may be weak, but Your Spirit’s strong in me. My flesh may fail, but my God You never will.”

    “holy, holy, holy”
    any rendition of anything that just repeats those words over and over and over. it’s what’s sung around the throne in Heaven, so i think if there’s any song that i had to sing forever, those are the words I want to go with. but for the sake of choosing a specific song, I am tied up between Matt Gilman’s “holy” for that very reason –
    “holy, holy, the Lord God Almighty…”

    OR (i think it’s by don moen) “to Him who sits on the throne and unto the Lamb be Blessing and Honor and Glory and Power FOREVER”

  50. Some great lines here. Choosing one is hard, but I’ld go with a line from “Show Us Who You Are” by Todd Proctor…

    “Show us who You are, we come to see you // Lead us in Your way for we believe You // Are the One who saves // Oh, how we need You to fall on this place // And leave us amazed at who You are.”

    Reminds me very much of the cry of Moses in Exodus 33 and I likewise don’t want to ever proceed throughout life without God going with and before.

  53. It is impossible to choose just one line out of SO many millions of profound lyrics. But this sums up what my life is about.

    Knowing You, Jesus, knowing You
    There is no greater thing.
    You’re my all, You’re the best,
    You’re my joy, my righteousness,
    And I love You Lord.

Holy Holy yeah Lord GOD almighty From Matt Gilmans “Holy”, IT is the phrase that angels sing as they worship him, who is to say that when we are there, at his feet. will we be able to say anything but? He is holy, he is mighty, and his wonders in every moment and second of our lives is blessing given by grace.

    • For me, for years, it’s been “It’s all about You, Jesus, for Your glory and Your fame; it’s not about me, as if I should do things my way; You alone are God and I surrender to Your ways.”
      At times it’s my testimony; at times it’s my prayer of surrender; every Sunday it’s my plea/prayer.

      • Cindy, those are great thoughts. I like how depending on where you are, the lyrics never change, but the posture YOU find yourself in might! Thanks for sharing!

  64. “I’ll stand, w/arms high & heart abandoned
    In awe, of the One who gave it all….all I am is yours.”
    – Joel Houston
    Such a hard question to answer but I feel, personally, that I try to live these particular lyrics everyday of my life & every time I step on any stage to worship. Such a painstaking phrase to walk out.
    The Great I Am is vastly becoming my mantra these days though:)
    Thanks for the time…blessings!

  65. I Exalt Thee would be my choice for the Worship song for the rest of my life. I want my Life to bring Honor and Glory to my Lord!

  66. I know that my redeemer lives
    And now I stand on what He did
    My Saviour, my Saviour lives
    Every day a brand new chance to say
    “Jesus, You are the only way”
    My Saviour, my Saviour lives

    • This whole song is full of great lyrics. But I agree this line seems to be the epitome of what worship is about.

      “Seek first the Kingdom of God, and His Righteousness…” Stockstill just said it a little differently.

  67. the song lyric I am thinking would be, “We will overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony, everyone overcome!”

      • Oh, and the reason why you asked? We are in a season of the year, Lent, Easter prep and Spring, that can often, coming out of winter, be a trying season for some. I declare, along with all of our people here at Stillmeadow, we will be overcomers only by the power of Jesus Christ to not only worship, but to live like Jesus in the world.

          • Overcame is a wonderful song. The lyrics are so powerful and the song is so versatile. I have heard it done the way it was written, Done as a country sounding son, and done with a heavy drive and rock theme. That helps expose lots of groups to it.

  68. The one song that speaks to me is Shepherd Me O God.

    Refrain: Shepherd me, O God,beyond my wants,beyond my fears,from death into life. God is my shepherd,so nothing shall I want, I rest in the meadows of faithfulness and love, I walk by the quiet waters of peace.

    I love the 23rd Psalm and this song touches my heart. I know that God is with me at all times. He is the way, the truth, and the light.

  69. I would say “Holy Holy Holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come, with all creation I sing, praise to the king of kings, you are my everything and I will adore you” from revelation Song.

  70. “My whole life us Yours, I give it all, Surrender to Your name and forever I will say, Have Your Way, Have Your Way.”

  71. Wow there are so many that fill me with emotion when I sing them. It’s powerful when great lyrics are combined with a great sounding melody and music. Here are a few that get me choked up when worshiping:
    1. “No weeping, no hurt or pain, no suffering you hold me now you hold me now. No darkness, no sick or lame, no hiding you hold me now, you hold me now” –You Hold Me Now-Hillsong United
    2. “We must go live to feed the hungry, stand beside the broken we must go. Stepping forward keep us from just singing, move us into action we must go” –God of Justice-Tim Hughes
    3. “I’ll stand with arms high and heart abandoned in awe of the One who gave it all. I’ll stand my soul Lord to you surrendered all I am is Yours”–The Stand-Hillsong United
    4. “Christ has died and Christ is risen, Christ will come again…Celebrate His death and rising lift your eyes proclaim His coming. Celebrate His death and rising lift your eyes lift your eyes”–Mystery-Charlie Hall

    Any of those!

      • alright, alright, alright! I hope that you don’t want to know because somehow you actually make it the only song I sing for the rest of my life! JK. I guess I would go with the second one then, “God of Justice”

  72. Jason Huggins on

    Relient K has a song (not a traditional worship song, but I worship to it!) called “Let it All Out” with a lyric that says, “The end will justify the pain it took to get us there.”

    This line has become the cadence of my life, knowing that the stuffering that we endure for the sake of the name of Jesus Christ will be worth it. Paul said it best, “I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” – Romans 18:8

  73. Adam Brakhane on

    Bridge in “Give Me Faith” by Elevation Worship
    I may be weak
    Your spirit’s strong in me
    My flesh may fail
    My God you never will

    Sums up our situation pretty darn well…

    -Adam

  74. Greg Chastine on

    The lyric I would choose to sing the rest of my life is the phrase ” I will give you all my praise” from the song ” I Will Worship”. Everyday I live and am able be a witness for Jesus is a day of praise. Everything I have I owe to him. He as helped me out of some financial jams recently that while not devastating, would have been very uncomfortable. What I owe Jesus is my life, family and soul. Amen.

  75. Niki Kauffman on

    “You are my shield, my strength, my portion, deliverer, my shelter, strong tower, my very present help in time of need.” ~taken from “Made Me Glad” by Miriam Webster

  76. I will sing to the maker of heaven and earth, God you reign forever and Your love will endure. Faithful and true is the name of the Lord, You are faithful God.

    Faithful – Chris Tomlin

  77. “if grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking” from How He Loves by John Mark McMillian. The lyrics of this song paint such a vivid picture of God’s love for us. Second would be “you make beautiful things out of us” from Gungor.

  78. Just one? That’s hard…
    “Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe, sin had left a crimson stain, He washed it white as snow”
    from Jesus Paid it All

    Other lyrical gems that I like:
    “You stay the same through the ages, Your love never changes, there may be pain in the night by joy comes in the morning, And when the oceans rage I don’t have to be afraid because I know that You love me”
    from Your Love Never Fails by Chris Quilala

    “Our God is the only righteous judge, ruling over us, with kindness and wisdom”
    from A Mighty fortress by Christy Nockels

    “How costly the bread, how bitter the wine, body broken in death blood poured out for life,
    How endless the love that laid down His life, How precious the blood and the body of Christ.”
    from We Remember by Jennifer Barnett

  79. This may be the hardest question you have ever asked me. There are so many impactful lyrics throughout history. I think if I were going to have to stick with only one, it would have to be something that praises God. There are tons of lyrics I love because they remind me of what he did, but to pick one that I am stuck with my whole life, it would need to be one that is all about him and magnifies him in the Beauty of his holiness. If it was a song about what he did for me that would be focusing on me as much as him and I do not want to be focused on him for my whole life.

    Ones that make the list include:
    “Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord, God, Almighty; Who was, and Is, and Is to come.”
    – Jennie Riddle: Revelation Song

    “Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Praise him all ye creatures here below. Praise him among ye Heavenly Hosts. Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.”
    – Doxology

    “God, You stand when all has fallen. You embrace the long forgotten.”
    – The Glorious Unseen: Forever Holy

    But I think the one I would pick is: DRUMROLL PLEASE!!!

    “The sun is dancing with the moon
    And the earth is spinning round singing her tune
    And the stars they sparkle in your eyes
    And the planets join hands with the comets as they fly”
    – Benjamin Dunn: Circus of Love

    I probably come up with hundreds on this topic, but thanks for making spend time reflecting on the lyrcis of the worship I sing. sometimes it is worth it to strip the musicianship, the instrumentation, and all of that and simply reflect on the words we are singing.

    *FYI, I do not want to win the CD. I just wanted to be involved in the amazing discussion.

  80. “O praise the One who paid my debt and raised this life up from the dead!” from “Jesus Paid It All” by Alex Nifong. I don’t think any believe would be bothered by singing this for the rest of his or her life! It’s a declaration that never gets old for me.

  81. I would use this because whenever I look at Him, I am blown away by His majesty and awesomeness. He truly is so beautiful. I want only to look and see Him in all that He is!

  82. Christ be the center of our lives, be the place we fix our eyes, be the center of our lives.

    Charlie Hall – Center

    No lyric knocks me in to a spirit of worship like this.

    • Tyler, I love the phrase “knocks me in to a spirit of worship” – haha – never heard it phrased that way! Thanks for chiming in!

  83. The words, “Jesus, Jesus, there’s just something about that name” seem to speak volumns about our Lord and Master. He is our all in all and one can find comfort in that.

  84. Trish O'Doherty on

    “I Surrender All” … a constant reminder of John 3:30 “He must become greater; I must become less.”

  85. I love the lyrics from Steve Fee & Vicky Beeching’s song “Glory to God Forever”.

    Creator God You gave me breath, so I could praise,
    Your great and matchless name, all my days, all my days!
    So, let my whole life be a blazing offering
    A life that shouts and sings the greatness of our King!

    To live out our lives to the fullest for the King is worship that captivates my heart!

  86. My hands go up giving You glory, I just can’t give enough
    You are so worthy Lord, I’ll keep pouring it out for You
    And my cup is overflowing with Your perfect love
    And this is my reward I’ll keep pouring it out for You

    by Jared Anderson & Jonathan Lee

    I was introduced to this song at a conference this past October while at a very low point. It culminated a time of resurgence and continues today as a rally call for me each morning.

  87. “If I lose it all You’re enough, If I gain the world, You’re enough. My joy is complete. Jesus You are enough for me”
    from “Enough” by Elevation Worship

  88. I would have to say “So I’ll stop searching for the answers. I’ll stop praying for an escape. And I’ll trust you God with where I am and believe that you will have your way. Just have you way.” (have your way by: Britt Nicole). I just love this song and the heart behind it. It’s all about when life is hard Or people abandon you cjoosin to say that you trust God no matter what happens or where he leads!

    “Beautiful Jesus, You are my only worth” Knees to the Earth by Watermark….get’s me every time!

  90. Lyric:
    “Lord, Make us instruments of your peace,

    Authors: Deby Dearman and Kirk Dearman : CCLI Song #1136271

    Why: I’ve chosen this as my personal favorite lyric / phrase because it resonnates to my heart of God’s will for me to enter into His timelessness while I am here on the earth: to enter into His sacrifice for all mankind, and to see His principles of love apply outwardly to others through me, as well as inwardly to me when I am walking through a despirate trial. I can bring to mind many instances, especially in the past three to four years, where I’ve needed despirately to hear God’s direction in my life. Without fail, as I have followed the way of His Peace, I have been able to find a quite more willing heart of surrender to Him. I have found more time to be quiet, without my own needs on the top of the list, and His voice has become so much more than a still soft whisper in my heart.

  91. for me …. this will be my burned in lyric forever ..l..
    “I’m Yours’ …. take me as I am … I’m Your …
    “take this space between us and fill it up …” tobymac

  92. Justin Watts on

    It was between 2, but one wins out! The runner up would be “Prone to wander, Lord I feel it, prone to leave the God I love. Here’s my heart Lord, take and seal it, seal it for Thy courts above” from ‘Come Thou Fount’. This is one of those daily prayer lyrics that speaks volumes in my life.

    HOWEVER, if there was ONLY 1 that I could sing for the rest of my life, it would be one simple line from ‘In Christ Alone’…
    “till on that cross, as Jesus died, the wrath of God was satisfied.”

    There it is… the gospel of Christ, which is salvation to those who believe, in one lyric!

    • Thanks, Justin, I love it when lyrics contain profound (and yet simple) truths in such short and sweet words! That’s a great song, too!

  93. I see you there hanging on a tree
    You bled and then you died and then you rose again for me
    Now you are sitting on Your heavenly throne
    Soon we will be coming home You’re beautiful
    (by P.Wickham)
    ..how long can a lyric be to qualify!? ..lol

  94. I think mine would be, either “You and I are made to worship” from the song “Made To Worship” by Chris Tomlin or “We live to worship You” from a song I wrote called “Redeemer And Savior”. I feel that that line encompasses what I want to be. I want to live out worship to God in every moment of my life by loving, honoring, and serving Him in everything that I do. Worship is a lifestyle of love and service to God not just music and songs.

  95. Mark Spaniel on

    I’ve stood in the desert and thirsted for you
    I’ve run through the city now I wont let go
    I’m throwing myself on your mercy O God
    You say it’s all or nothing I’m saying “Jesus, have it all”

    There are so many wonderful praise/worship songs that have been penned throughout history. Many have been birthed from trials and tribulations, victories and defeats, love, passion and desire for Him. But of all the songs currently written, my favorite is the one that is NOT written. The one He gives me when I am pouring out everything to and on Him, whether in prayer, praise, worship or all three. The one that I can sing to Him, in that moment…that’s my favorite place to be and would have to be my selection for my favorite lyric or phrase.

  98. Steve Russell on

    I know it’s an “oldie”, but I would take the chorus from Rich Mullins’ song “Sometimes By Step” – “Oh God, you are my god, and I will ever praise you”. So very simple, and yet it speaks so directly from the heart. I know that Rich is singing those words loud and strong in heaven!

  99. It is so hard to choose just one line or phrase from this song – out of the tens of thousands of songs that I love, there is one favorite for me. The song is best sung, in my opinion, by David Crowder Band, and is titled, I think, “How He Loves Us”. The lyric that does me in every time from the very first verse of the song:

    When all of a sudden, I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
    And I realize just how beautiful You are,
    And how great Your affections are for me.

  100. “You’re my Glorious King and my heart just sings to you!”, from “I Delight in You” by Mark Miller, Vineyard. There is no greater joy in my life than singing praises to our glorious Lord who delights in us singing His praises!!

  101. “The Steadfast love of the Lord never ceases
    His mercies never come to an end
    they are new every morning, new every morning
    Great is thy faithfulness oh Lord,
    Great is thy faithfulness.”

    I work as a medical missionary in the northwest mountains of Honduras and also transport children to and from heart surgery to a hospital and back home again to third world countries. I am so blessed to be a part of His plan. Every day is new, I look at the Great Adventure with open eyes each morning waiting in anticipation to see what God will bring my way. There are so many blessings to be a part of His work.

  102. I like this simple line from the closing song of Hillsong United’s “United We Stand”:

    “Hallelujah… our God reigns!” It’s a line worth eternal repetition in my book… :)

  103. “Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness.”
    This is straight Scripture, but was used most widely through the Maranatha singers in the 70’s. It still comes into my head when I am confronted with moral and ethical decisions; and musically, it and the other two verses and Hallelujah descant represent a rare perfection in the marriage of lyric and melody.

  104. Jemma Hamilton on

    I have my top three lyrics (in order as shown if I absolutely have to pick between them)

    1) “In royal robes I don’t deserve, I live you serve your majesty” (King of kings, Majesty) – this one reminds me so much of all that Jesus has done for me, and what my response should be.

    2) “He wraps himself in light” (The Splendour of the King) – this line just blows my mind with the awesomeness of God.

    3) “When Satan tempts me to despair, and tells me of the guilt within, upward I look and see him there who made an end to all my sin” (Before the throne) – It’s so easy to look at myself and feel wretched, but God wants me to lift my eyes and see him

  105. Melody Randle on

    It would be, “I’ll serve you while I’m waiting” from the theme song Fireproof. It reminds me that even though you may be waiting for your loved ones to come to the Lord, or waiting on a healing or just waiting with a word the Lord spoke to you, no matter what-keep serving the King, walk in faith, look with your spiritual eyes and celebrate the victory before it manifests. Love in Christ!!!

  106. I would say hillsongs Hosanna the line “break my heart for what breaks yours” especially with Japan, Libya, and everything going on this world we have to remember to keep our focus not on ourselves but on God and align his heart with ours:D Its a constant reminder that we are here to love God and love people

  107. Paul Wunderlich on

    “I’m running to Your arms, I’m running to Your arms. The riches of Your love will always be enough.”
    from “Forever Reign” by Hillsong United. I love the imagery that these lyrics give, and I get a little choked up whenever I sing them :)

  108. “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, Holy, Holy is He” from Revelation Song by Jennie Lee Riddle. He alone is worthy! “Sing a new song to Him who sits on Heaven’s mercy seat” We need His mercy! So good we sing it twice!

    Mine forever lyric would be an older lyric but explains my feelings toward God: You deserve the Glory and the honor. I lift my hands in worship and I bless your Holy Name. You are Great. You do miracles so great. There is No One else like you

  112. Until my breath runs dry I will sing to you, Until we fin’lly meet I live down at Your feet….

  113. The lyric that shakes me lately is from Remembrance by Matt Maher and Matt Redman
    “None too lost to be saved, none to broken or ashamed…all are welcome in this place”

    I believe that.
    hope i win. Love me some New LIfe!!!

  118. “Our God, our God”
    The last line of the chorus of Chris Tomlin’s “Our God”! :)

  119. Oh praise the One who paid my debt and raised this life up from the dead!… the lyrics of the bridge from Kristian Stanfill’s version of “Jesus Paid it All”.

    Truly Christ’s provision is everything and why we can sing!
