Sing to the Lord

Genre: Spiritual, Christian Rock, Soft Rock
Released: October 2016

The title track, “Sing to the Lord,” is an upbeat praise song based on the Psalms of David.   

“Sing to the Lord” is a praise and worship album consisting of seven original songs and two covers. Many of these songs were written for my local congregation but I wanted to share them with the world.

“Almighty God” is a powerful and unique worship song that attempts to capture the glory and awesomeness of an all-powerful creator.

“Build Your Fire in Me” is a prayer for the Spirit of God who lives within us to fill our hearts, comfort our fears, and open our eyes to see like Jesus.

With a God who loves us, died for us, and guides us, this song asks the question “How Could We Not” love Him back?

No matter what we’re dealing with in life, the Bible contains the wisdom and answers we are looking for if we will only “Listen to the Word of God”

“Holy Spirit” is a cover of the song written by Katie and Bryan Torwalt and made famous by Francesca Battistelli. It’s one we sing often in our congregation and I wanted to include it on this album.

“Sacrifice” was written for communion. Our pastor commented that we didn’t have enough communion songs so I penned this one that we now use often during the celebration of communion.

“Remembrance” is another communion song written by Matt Redmond.

The final track on the album is an upbeat and fun to sing song praise song called “Lift up your Voice”

“Sing to the Lord” is a collection of nine very pleasing songs that, while openly praising Jesus & God, is really nice listening for anyone. This is Spirituals done very nicely in a Soft Rock format. “Holy Spirit” has shades of Neil Diamond. Just the thing if feeling a bit lost.

Lyrics

Nine songs for keeping the Lord close in your life.

Sing to the Lord
 
Sing to the Lord
Let all the earth proclaim
Your salvation every day
 
Declare your glory
Throughout the nations
Your marvelous deeds in every way
 
I will bless you Lord at all times
Your praise will always be in my mouth
My soul will make its boast in you my God
And the humble will hear and they'll shout
Endless praises to your holy name
 
Great are you Lord
You're to be feared above all gods
You are worthy of my deepest praise
 
Splendor and majesty
They are before you
Strength and joy are your dwelling place
 
I will bless you Lord at all times
Your praise will always be in my mouth
My soul will make its boast in you my God
And the humble will hear and they'll shout
Endless praises to your holy name
 
Sing to the Lord
Let all the earth proclaim
Your salvation every day
You’re the Almighty God
 
As easily as a child tosses glitter in the air
You flung the stars across the universe
Vast blue oceans wide, peaks that pierce the sky
You said the word and there they were
 
I will worship you all my days
And I will sing to you all my praise
And I will let your light shine for the world to see
 
You’re the Almighty God of Heaven
You’re the Almighty God of Earth
You’re the Almighty God of the Universe
 
Like a loving tender artist shaping clay upon his wheel
You molded us for your delight
Coded DNA, no two fingerprints the same
A tiny sample of your might
 
And I will sing to you all my praise
And I will let your light shine for the world to see
 
You’re the Almighty God of Heaven
You’re the Almighty God of Earth
You’re the Almighty God of the Universe
 
The heavens declare your glory
Creation tells your story
I lift my voice in worship
To the Holy Great I Am
 
You’re the Almighty God of Heaven
You’re the Almighty God of Earth
You’re the Almighty God of the Universe
Build Your Fire in Me

Holy Spirit you’re welcomed here
Come fill our hearts and calm our fears
Open our eyes so that we can see like Jesus
Holy Spirit build your fire in me
Holy Spirit you’re welcomed here
Come fill our hearts and calm our fears
Open our eyes so that we can see like Jesus
Holy Spirit build your fire in me
 
Counselor and Comforter, Breath of the Almighty King
The Spirit of the Living God is alive inside of me
 
Holy Spirit you’re welcomed here
Come fill our hearts and calm our fears
Open our eyes so that we can see like Jesus
Holy Spirit build your fire in me
How Could We Not
 
Father we love you, how could we not
You wove creation’s tapestry
You’re the source of all we’ve got
 
Jesus we love you, how could we not
You took our place and bore our sins
Upon that rugged cross
 
Spirit we love you, how could we not
You guide us through our troubles
And give wisdom to our thoughts
 
Holy trinity three in one
Holy Spirit, Holy Father, Holy Son
We bow and worship you and give you all we’ve got
We sacrifice our lives for you, how could we not
 
Father we love you, how could we not
You wove creation’s tapestry
You’re the source of all we’ve got
 
Jesus we love you, how could we not
You took our place and bore our sins
Upon that rugged cross
 
Spirit we love you, how could we not
You guide us through our troubles
And give wisdom to our thoughts
 
In light of all your mercy we bow before your throne     
You bought us for a heavy price so we are not our own
We are a living sacrifice we live to bear good fruit     
We’ve been transformed to worship you In Spirit and in Truth
 
Holy trinity three in one
Holy Spirit, Holy Father, Holy Son
We bow and worship you and give you all we’ve got
We sacrifice our lives for you, how could we not
Listen to the Word of God
 
Listen to the word of God
There is so much it has to say
Listen to the word of God
It was true back then it’s true today
 
You’ll find comfort for your sorrow
You’ll find wisdom for your soul
You’ll find knowledge
That your mind would never know
 
Listen to the word of God
There is so much it has to say
Listen to the word of God
It was true back then it’s true today
 
You’ll find love from your creator
You’ll find grace that makes you whole
You’ll find peace that
Passes everything you know
 
Listen to the word of God
There is so much it has to say
Listen to the word of God
It was true back then it’s true today
Sacrifice
 
Come here all ye faithful and gather round His table
The very blood and body of our Savior King
Spotless lamb unblemished the sacrifice is finished
A price too great to measure purchased you and me
 
Drink this brand new covenant He said
Take and eat this broken bread
And when you do remember me
And I will make you new
 
Come here all ye faithful and gather round His table
The very blood and body of our Savior King
Spotless lamb unblemished the sacrifice is finished
A price too great to measure purchased you and me
 
There’s no way we could make it on our own
We couldn't have stood before His throne
On judgment day but He paid the price
And He made the way
 
Come here all ye faithful and gather round His table
The very blood and body of our Savior King
Lift Up Your Voice
 
Lift up your voice sing praises to the Lord
Open your mouth confess His holy word
Raise up your hands your hearts have been restored
Lift up your voice sing praises to the Lord
 
Watch the orange round sun set on the sea         
Nap in the cool calm shade of an old oak tree
Feel the warm embracing hug of a friend in need
What else can we do except believe
 
Lift up your voice sing praises to the Lord
Open your mouth confess His holy word
Raise up your hands your hearts have been restored
Lift up your voice sing praises to the Lord
 
See the ever changing glory of a summer sky                 
Catch the laughter in a baby’s sparkling eyes
Hear the soft and soothing sound of a loved one’s voice
What else can we do except rejoice
 
Lift up your voice sing praises to the Lord
Open your mouth confess His holy word
Raise up your hands your hearts have been restored
Lift up your voice sing praises to the Lord
 
We lift up our voice and we praise you Holy Lord
