  • Best New Songs

    Hey Everyone,
    I'm posting this for Jan, a worship leader who sent this via email. She's a member of the forums, but couldn't remember her login! (gotcha!)

    Anyway, she'll probably find this eventually, but her question is this:

    Hey all -
    I am researching the next worship songs to add to our rotation and wondered what songs you have encountered lately that are powerful? That touched you? If you are a worship leader, what songs have you seen that seem to help others connect deeply to God? What's working in your church?

    Thanks so much,

    We are seeing several songs that God is touching people with lately. Here are a few off the top of my head:

    Yearn- Shane and Shane
    Beautiful the Blood- Fee
    Lift High- Fee

    Yearn we have been playing for a while, but the last 2 are pretty recent, like this past Sunday for Lift High, so I based the decision to put those on this short list because of immediate response with the song very new to the congregation.<---------very close to a run on sentence!!

      The answer of this question sorta depends on how up on the times your church is. If you're not doing them yet, I'd add "Sweetly Broken", "How He Loves", & "Revelation Song", for starters. My personal favorites right now are very fresh: "Morningstar" by Al Gordon, "Say So" by Michael Gungor, "I have Found" by Kim Walker, & runner up goes to Celebration Music's "One & Only".

          Sure thing - glad you found your login Jan.

          I think a few songs that very "new" that are catching on in churches would include:

          "Today is the Day" by Lincoln Brewter
          "Let God Arise" by Chris Tomlin/Passion
          "Our God Saves" by Paul Baloche
          "Healer" (Planetshakers or Hillsongs)
          "God Of This City" (Passion)

                We are loving Everything by Lifehouse!

                The one problem we run into is we haven't been able to find any decent sheet music for the song. Most all of the instrumentalists have just been playing it by ear and writing their own...Can anyone help?


                • #9
                  here's a link


                  http://www.iwillworship.com/view.asp?id=2202 is Everything by Lifehouse

                  Hope this works for you.

                    Jesus Messiah

                    Last Sunday we taught our congregation Jesus Messiah, by Chris Tomlin. It's been playing on K-Love pretty often, so a lot of our people had heard it and picked it right up. It is a relatively easy song and I really like it, but I was unprepared for how powerfully that song would touch our people. I think it's going to be one of our favorites.

                      Lots of Good Songs

                      Lots of good songs, everything folks have listed has been great. . . I just added three songs by Daniel Doss to our song list that I'm really enjoying. . . plus the lead sheets are posted on his web site, which is always an added bonus. . .

                      "Lord Reign", "Great God" and "Abba Father" are all really excellent. . .

                              I'll ditto 'Bless His Name"

                              I don't know if this is a "new song" but It's new to me:

                              You Are Holy (Isaiah 6 or Isaiah's call) by Trinity Worship

                              Sing My Love- JEsus Culture
