Your Favorites...

Mike Cope 's blog today is about listing your favorite 3 worship songs. I'm a music addict and can recall lyrics from the 70's with ease. I've been reminded of some of my favorites while reading the comments section. I've also been amazed at some of the choices but I guess that's why some people complain about the song selections for Sundays. I ONLY complain when we sing Blue Skies and Rainbows.

Now it's your turn - What 3 worship songs would you choose for Sunday morning? Feel free to list again if you already posted on Mike's blog.

I listed: (but this may only be true for today)

1. My Hope Is Built On Nothing Less (an all-time favorite)

2. No Higher Calling

3. Wonderful Merciful Savior

Sadly, I don't think "Days of Elijah" would be on my top 10, even. It's a great toe-tapper, but it doesn't touch my soul like so many others.

I think that the songs you relate to when sung make a connection with the longings in your heart and soul. Sometimes you might just like a worship song because like Sarah said it is a toe tapper, but sometimes it is the picture in your head you see when you sing the words. Going home to heaven is always my favorite thing to sing about, and I think that many of my favorite songs have that as a theme. When I sing Days of Elijah I close my eyes and I can see in my mind the spectacle of Jesus riding a cloud calling us home. Love it. Just like There's a Stirring, could He be calling me? There is a visual I get with that, and I just can't wait to be called home. Glory.

I was taught as an adult that our reward would be based on our service(works.) This bothered me for a long time "just give me a hut on the beach" I had taken to saying. Then I sang There's a Stirring and the lyrics say we'll lay down our crowns at Jesus's feet. Yep, it's Bibical. I checked it out. I love knowing that no matter what I do-I'm His and no matter how MUCH I do-it's His. Glory.

Tammy -- great point. I've known for a long time: I'm a word person, many other people (usually very creative ones) are picture people. I see words and definitions and associated words in my brain when you try to "paint a picture" for me; you actually see the picture. I guess the words in "Days of Elijah" don't string together for me like others do (but I actually do get a picture in my head of a cartoon cowboy trying to tame a wild cloud he's riding -- it's an illness).

Sarah said...

Oh. One more thing, because I'm a conformist: Glory.

So tonight in HIP we sang, There's A Stirring, It is Well, No Higher Calling, did I miss one? There were lots more but I wondered if they were chosen after Mike's blog today. It was a wonderful night of praise!

wonderful night of praise and my soul lapped it all up.

depends on the focus of the worship songs change from day to day. favorites come with the feelings of the day. its too hard to pin down an all time favorite at any one time.

o.k i feel a little like I am entering a private conversation, but I am a novice blogger so here goes.

I happen to love Blue skies and Rainbows, but that is because I have a very sentimental attachment to it. So other than that I would have to say . .

1) No Higher Calling
2) The Heavans Sing Praise (I call this the Milky Way song- it is a song I heard often in the NW but have not heard it sung here)
3) Just as I am

I also love Days of Elijah . . . it would be interesting to know if anyone has any black listed songs. That is except for Blue skies and Rainbows . . . (anyone brave enough to admit a worship song they do not like?)

Well, there is no possible way for me to narrow down my song list to a mere three, but I would definitely have to say that "Come to the Table" would definitely be up there! I love that song.

I'll admit that if I NEVER hear "As The Deer" again (the older one -- we sang a newer one last night) I will be immensely happy.
