Busy as ever in this group, I see!
I need some songs about the Kingdom of God.
TBH WTR has become very slow lately. I'll have a think, Dee, since nothing is coming to mind right now except a single line I can't connect with anything. Many songs refer to the KoG obliquely, rather than specifically: e.g. Let your glory fall in this place (starts Ruler of the nations IIRC).
How about Jesus, God's righteousness revealed by Geoff Bullock. You can find it in Songs of Fellowship Book 3 music edition.
Thanks both. I'm finding the sermon theme (Jesus' teaching about the Kingdom of God, specifically the story of the pearl of great price) tricky regarding songs. Normally, the theme triggers lots of song ideas for me.
Now that's a quite different spin on things.
Draw me close to you
Jesus, be the centre
All I once held dear
My first love (as a reminder)
There's probably a bunch of stuff, but I don't have a song list handy to remind me.
I thought of another one which might work for you based on the pearl idea: Lord you are more precious than silver..., more costly than gold...
Hi Dee - WTR is v.slow these days...
Some more thoughts to add to those below:
King of Kings, Majesty
You are beautiful beyond description
I'm giving you my heart (I surrender)
God bless, James
Some possibles (I was going to mention Come set your rule by the Rend Collective Experiment as well)
All I have, All I am - Matt Osgood, on the Resound Worship site
Restore O Lord (old Graham Kendrick song)
Couple of home-grown possibles:
All the world is changed (on my page, http://www.worshiptherock.com/profile/DanielRead)
This one: http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=8564513 (very rough recording of song based on Beatitudes, written by another member of our group)
Thanks for the suggestions, Folks. I'm going to be working on this today. It's nice to have somewhere to start. My mind was a complete blank! Some of those are familiar. Others I'll have to look up.
BTW, my name is Dorothy. Toni is confused cos I used to be Dee here, which was a very old nickname, because at that time I thought people used 'user-names' rather than real names. My fault, but Dorothy it is. No one calls me Dee any more.
Any more suggestions needed or are you sorted now?
I'm good now thanks, Wulf. Why not add some suggestions for posterity to discover though!
