Lyrics of the Heart…

It’s amazing how many songs lyrics just hit the heart and how many great songs are out there.  For most here, we’re all music lovers already, so posting songs comes naturally, and it seems only natural to try and find the song that describes who we are here as friends, siblings in Christ and how we encourage, strengthen and sharpen each other, how we love the Lord and how we would like to present ourselves to those who might be lurking.

Yes we have the odd family squabble and sometimes don’t understand each other, but for a group with as much diverse backgrounds and faith walks as we have, I imagine we are as much like the early church as could be while never meeting each other face to face.

While we might not always agree, I would love for our ‘porch’ to always be open and welcoming to anyone who ventures in here because what we have here at the Heart Beat needs to be shared.  Music is a universal voice which sometimes describes our heart more than we can express, so what better way to show who we are, and share what we have than a theme song for our Heart Beat.

For everyone who has submitted songs and helped vote on the first week’s picks, Thank You!!

For today we need to break a couple of ties, and I think we ought to focus more on the lyrics than the song.  So which of the following lyrics speaks to you of the atmosphere of this place and this fellowship?

Choose ONE Only

Lyrics #1

Come meet this motley crew of misfits
These liars and these thiefs
There’s no one unwelcome here, no
So that sin and shame that you brought with you
You can leave it at the door
And let mercy draw you near

Just come to the table
Come join the sinners, you have been redeemed
Take your place beside the Savior now
Sit down and be set free

Lyrics #2 

I know, that I am far, from perfect
But through You, the cross still says, I’m worth it
So take this beating in my heart and
Come and finish what You started
When they see me, let them see You
‘Cause I just wanna be different, ye-ey
I wanna be different
I wanna be changed
‘Til all of me is gone
And all that remains
Oh is a fire so bright
The whole world can see

Choose ONE only

Lyrics #3

Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are amazing God
All powerful, untameable,
Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God
Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are amazing God
Incomparable, unchangeable
You see the depths of my heart and You love me the same

Lyrics #4

Give me your heart give me your song
Sing it with all your might
Come to the fountain and
You can be satisfied
There is a peace, there is a love
You can get lost inside
Come to the fountain and
Let me hear you testify

Lyrics #5

The sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning
It’s time to sing Your song again
Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing when the evening comes

Bless the Lord
Bless the Lord
Oh my soul, oh my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
Oh my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

Lyrics #6 

The one who reigns forever
He is a friend of mine
The God of angel armies
Is always by my side
My strength is in your name
For you alone can save
You will deliver me
Yours is the victory
Whom shall I fear

I know who goes before me
I know who stands behind
The God of angel armies

Lyrics #7

When I stop and watch the people who Come and go everyday
Yours is always the one face I find That is helpful and hopeful and kind
And sometimes I feel Nothing is real
But there’s always you
Thank God there’s you

Lyrics #8

I’ve walked among the shadows
You wiped my tears away
And I’ve felt the pain of heartbreak
And I’ve seen the brighter days
And I’ve prayed prayers to heaven from my lowestplace
And I have held the blessings
God, you give and take away
No matter what I have, Your grace is enough
No matter where I am, I’m standing in Your love

I know that it’s incredibly hard to choose because all of these are amazing songs, and some songs we love more than others, some are closer to how we love to worship… but what speaks of this place and who we are is sometimes different than what our favorites might be.   However we choose, and however we pick from tomorrow’s list of songs posted from this week- they will always be favorites to post here.

I hope everyone has a blessed Saturday!
