It can be hard to find solid, new corporate worship songs for your congregation, especially if you don’t subscribe to the “one-size-fits-all” mentality of only pulling from the CCLI Top 100. Well, I collect new songs year round, listen, play along, & analyze to see which ones float to the top – that’s to say, I’ve done some of the work for you. Here are my most recent picks.“Praise our God” – Matt McCoy (Chart available HERE)
I reviewed Matt’s latest right HERE, but on the short, Matt is a worship leader atHarvest Bible Chapel, a regularly appearing musician in the Vertical Church Band, & the Founder/CEO of the Loop Community. I’ve already added “Praise our God” to Saint Lewis’s live set-list, & hope to use it corporately soon as well. It’s a strong, mid-uptempo Call-to-Worship anthem, with a strong melody, & chorus that is both classic/historic/Biblical (“To Him to sits on Heaven’s throne…“), & quite original, feeling like a “breakdown” (if it were driven my distorted guitar instead of synths, a mosh-pit would break out) – it’s really quite powerful on it’s musical merits alone. Necessary listening for all of you worship pastor audiophiles.
