Just wondering what new worship songs from this year (i.e. 2012) have caught your imagination? Is there a particular worship song that was new to you recently, but now seems like you've known it for ages? These songs are often the ones that are congregational and easy to pick up.
Looking forward to seeing which new 2012 worship songs are popular amongst our members!
i just watched God with us now i love it..i think its a great song any worship leader can add to his sunday praise and worship list.
What happened to this forum? Did it die? I used to find a bunch of great new songs here. Anyone out there???
I love the fresh approach of the Rend Collective Experiment. We're actually doing "You Are My Vision" this week in church. "Build Your Kingdom" is another high energy favorite and fills a real need for more worship music with a missional heart. Our third Rend song, "You Bled", is from the first album, and includes snippets of "How Marvelous" and "Jesus Loves Me"
Meanwhile, we have incorporated 2 Will Reagan & UPC songs, "Set A Fire" and "Break Every Chain". Our congregation really jumps in to "I Give Myself Away" by William McDowell, another call to Christian action, but with a gospel feel. If you have keyboard and bass that like to groove or pop, then try Aaron Keyes' "Dwell" (or about anything off of his last album, including "Song Of Moses") The other new favorites in our congregation the last year include "One Thing Remains" by Bethel/Jesus Culture, "Freedom Reigns" and "Mighty Breath Of God" by Jesus Culture, "At Your Name", which we do as a hybrid of the Tim Hughes and Phil Wickham versions, "Unending Songs" by Leeland, and older IHOP-KC songs like "Tree" and "Found Faithful" by Justin Rizzo, "Made A Way" by Gilman/Asbury, "O Taste And See" (Misty Edwards & originally by Bethel). Finally we have been doing 10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord) by Matt Redman since the album released last year, and now of course, our folks are also hearing it all over the radio.
The last Tomlin song our folks really embraced was "All My Fountains" from last year's Passion conference.
As a follow up to my recent post on new music we're doing, let me elaborate on Rend Collective Experiment. Below are links to videos and resources. I love their hearts and winsome attitude. I love that they present worship as a total life event and not a series of 30 minute song-blocks. I really love their emphasis on the Church, universal and on the Kingdom of God (rare focii from our present day worship industry). And ... they put all their chord sheets for free on their website here: http://rendcollective.com/chords/

The above is meant to share music and messages we're excited about and merely appears to be a non-paid, unsolicited advertisement for this band.
Yep, Rend Collective are such a gift
Build your kingdom has gone down a treat at our church
I also taught alabaster which was pretty emotional, ended up talking about how much I hate feet. Weird.
Been meaning to teach Second Chances but ended up going off sick for a few months. Also desperate to teach Shining Star from that album (Rend Collective Experiment - 'Homemade worship by handmade people')
Anyone who has checked out the album a strongly recommend it to you. Is something of a breath of fresh air even if a little too mumford and sons at times (just my opinion of course) And I really like mumford and sons so go figure
Ha! I love it, Andrew! So went and listened to Alabaster on the way to work the next day and cracked up. Since *I* got the personal touch and felt your connectedness just from the above post, I'm totally sure your feet soliloquy set quite a proper tone for your brothers and sisters in your church. Thanks, brother, and I pray your few months of infirmity are passed.
ps) I relay the explanation Gareth gives concerning "You Are My Vision" and it really seems to create energy and acceptance for doing a cherished older hymn in such a new light -- almost like having 2 separate songs.
pps) I may either get or make a Jingling Johnny for Christmas this year. Most of these songs would be good to just sit around the living room and jam with.
I read this in the forum yesterday and we learned Come On and You Bled to do tomorrow. It was a miraculous rehearsal, to say the least:) Two new songs is an amazing feat:)
Read your set lists -- liked 'em. So, how did the new songs go over?
Hope you are well - not been about for a while..........anyway not sure they are 2012 songs but fresh for us - so:
Bless The Lord O My SOul (10,000 Reasons)
God Is Able
If My Herat Is Overwhelmed (Love Came Down)
Be Lifted High
You Are Good (I Want To Scream It Out)
Revelation Song (Worthy Is The Lamb)
There are probably some more but that's a taste
We have had an phenominal 18 months in Norfolk (Engalnd) and at FBCC - a large number of churches across the county are joined together in a call for revivsl for the UK following prophecy that it will begin in Norfolk, and it is happening now WOW AMAZING!!
In addition last Thursday I led a team of six musicians and singers (never having played together before but from churches connected to the Norfolk Revival stuff) and we were the Praise band for Day 48 of the Prayer and Praise bus touring the UK 1 hour ahead of the Olympic flame - an amazing day in which God poured out blessings on us and just provided a perfect day..............
So, exciting stuff in Norfolk that I am just honoured to be part of
God Bless Phil and all at WTR
