  • The wonder of Your worth

    Another worship song....

    http://soundcloud.com/richjens/the-wonder-of-your-worth

    To Him alone who does great wonders
    His steadfast love endures forever
    He made the heavens, he made the light
    Our God in heaven - He is able
    to do more than we imagine
    His is the glory, and His the might

    The universe displays
    The wonder of Your worth
    Let every creature praise
    In heaven and on earth
    So with one voice we raise
    Our thanks to God above
    He is Lord, He is Lord


    With His word he holds the heavens
    With His word He heals the broken
    Every creature is in His sight
    And He has gathered all His people
    To be His own, a holy nation
    We've moved from darkness into His light

    The universe displays
    The wonder of Your worth
    Let every creature praise
    In heaven and on earth
    So with one voice we raise
    Our song to God above
    He is Lord, He is Lord


    The universe displays
    Your wonder, Your wonder
    Let every voice be raised
    in worship, in worship

    I love the words. Such a great word-picture of the awesomeness of our God!

    The only thing that bothered me is the back and forth between vertical and horizontal, especially in the chorus:

    "The universe displays the wonder of YOUR worth"
    "HE is Lord, HE is Lord."

    Actually, as I look closer, the "Your worth" is the only vertical; everything else is telling about Him, rather than talking to Him.

    I also like the energy of the song; those powerful words need a high energy arrangement .

      Good point Tom - I'll have to think about the vertical/horizontal... maybe it should all be horizontal?

        Nothing wrong with a song that tells about God; the Psalms are full of them. Changing one word is easier than rewriting the whole song!

          Nice song rich. I still think your vocals get a little lost in the music, but I think it is getting way better. I see what Tom is saying, that is an interesting point. I don't think I would have thought about that if he hadn't mentioned it.

          God Bless

            Thanks Doug... Yes, I'm still learning how to make the vocals stand out when there's lots going on in a song. I guess I don't mind if they get lost a bit as my voice isn't the best anyway!

                I have a beautiful voice. It just gets torn to shreds trying to get out.

                  Wow, this is a very impressive song. The music is fantastic. Did you write the lyrics and music? Where do you find the time?

                    Yes I wrote the music and lyrics. I've found that once you get into a habit of songwriting it becomes easier (most of the time!)
