"O The Deep, Deep Love Of Jesus" (the classic hymn-book tune, not the newer Sovereign Grace tune)
"You Are Mighty"
I also took a crack at writing a minor-keyed worship song last year.
Nice job on the song Alex! Praise our God!
Off the top of my head, two come to mind:
1. "I Will Celebrate" -- sing unto the Lord, I will sing to Him a new song ... (not sure of the author, but it has that jewish minor thing going on)
2. "Lead Me to the Cross" by Hillsong (You can actually do a lot of cool things with the chord structure there ... soloing would be really easy...)
Happy Giving of Thanks!
I absolutely love We Worship You! I have never heard that before! Do you happen to have the chord chart that you can forward me? Mylifesingspraise@gmail.com
This is my favourite
Baruch Haba B'shem Adonai
Take me in, more love more power, lord you have my heart, praise adonai...
My favourites too : )
There is another that I just thought of... "Fly" by Robin Mark!
Sing Hallelujah to the Lord (some use "Alleluia") - Maranatha song which can be sung a capella with echoes, or with strings or a rock band, or absolutely anything, and it registers.
Holy of Holies (Take me past the outer courts...)
Psalm 95 / Hallelujah (O Come Let Us Sing) - Rick Powell, Matterhorn Music (popularized by Kenneth Copeland, who i think sang the solo). Wonderful wonderful song from the 70's, when the Okies were discovering that Hebrew music had the same boom-chick beat they already knew). A straight setting of Psalm 95, in three verses. If you can find the original it is priceless.
Facedown. (Matt Redman) Actually melts from Eb minor to Gb. A gorgeous picture of "throne-room" worship.
O Sacred Head. Found in any hymnal, usually with the genuine Bach 4-part, which is easy to sing for a group that can hold a part.
Once to Every Man and Nation (hymn from the Welsh revival)
You Shall Go Out with Joy (Trees of the Field) - Stuart Dauermann One of the best of all 70's Scripture choruses, practically straight from Isaiah.
Make a Joyful Noise (Russell Lowe, 1984 Integrity) Awesome praise song you can sing over a half-dozen times with variations, or medley into other minor clap-and-dance songs, such as I Will Celebrate (Linda Duvall)
I don't have my book with me, but there's a guy named Terry Mc-something, ah yes! MacAlmon from a big church in Colorado that made an album, Visit Us (1997, TMMI Music), that starts with Prepare Ye the Way. The song is in major, but the Prelude is in minor and melts into the opening song. Very beautiful, makes-you-weep beautiful. Well, it made me weep. I was having a midlife crisis when I heard it first, and seeing flower buds opening made me weep.
On my profile I had Where You Keep Your Treasure. I'll see if it's still there (about half of what I write is in minor).
More Love, More Power.
I have somewhat mixed feelings about songs in minor keys.
I do like some of them but in our band I play whistles. For those who don't whistles only have a major scale unless you resort to a technique known as "half holing". The more accidentals the more "half holing" and it's difficult.
Thank you guys! I will check these out!!
