‘Our God Is An Awesome God’

I haven’t posted this hymn in a while. Let me correct that fault right now–Our God Is an Awesome God, by Michael W. Smith.

There’s something to be said for a multitude of Christians all singing God’s praise under one roof. As I heard a wise lady once say: When the going gets tough… sing louder.

By Request, ‘Do It Again/Surrounded’

Requested by Susan, and spot-on suitable for the grim situation in which we find ourselves: Do It Again and Surrounded, played and recorded together by Michael W. Smith. I think we want to refer here to 2 Kings 6: 16-17, in which Elisha shows his servant God’s host of angels, invisibly poised to save them from the enemy.

By Request, ‘Friends Are Friends Forever’

Requested by Thewhiterabbit, Friends Are Friends Forever, by Michael W. Smith.

My best friend when I was a boy was Ellen, across the street. But of course her family moved away and that was that.

By Request, ‘Way Maker’

Our first hymn request of the day comes from SlimJim–Way Maker, a worship song by Michael W. Smith.

I don’t know if I’ll get around to doing any nooze today.

Bonus Hymn, ‘Our God Is an Awesome God’

I post this as an antidote, an answer, to the pessimism that creeps over our souls from time to time. Let us not forget the God we serve!

If you can, take yourself out of today’s nooze and put yourself into the audience within this video–and then try to tell yourself the bad guys win, no hope, they beat God. Go ahead, try.

Our God Is an Awesome God, by Michael W. Smith: he hardly has to sing it; he’s got a hall full of people to sing it for him.

Feel free to join in!

‘Our God Is an Awesome God’

Yes, we’ve posted this before; but we won’t be any the worse for hearing it again. Our God Is an Awesome God, by Michael W. Smith–with most of the singing done by the concert audience.

Our God truly is an awesome God, maker of heaven and earth and all that is in them…

By Request, ‘Reckless Love’

Someone was bound to ask for this, sooner or later–Reckless Love, by Michael W. Smith, with a little help from a couple thousand people in the audience. Requested by Susan.

Remember–anyone can make a hymn request. I have a few lined up that I’ll get to when I can. So if you have a hymn you’d like to share, just leave a comment anywhere; we’ll do the rest.

Encore, ‘Our God Is an Awesome God’

This is the hymn that insisted on being posted this morning: I must have a need for it. Our God is an Awesome God, by Michael W. Smith. Note that all he has to do is play the first few notes and the whole audience starts singing. I wish I’d been there!

Our God truly is an awesome God, and more than equal to the challenge of even this profoundly evil age. We need an awesome and mighty Redeemer–and we’ve got one.

Michael W. Smith, ‘Hallelujah’

Sometimes it seems all Michael W. Smith has to do is play the first few chords, and his audience will do the rest. Here the audience joins him in singing Hallelujah. I wonder what it would be like, to be at one of these events.

By Request, ‘Shout to the Lord’

Requested by Linda: Shout to the Lord. This worship song by Michael W. Smith reminds me of some lines in Psalm 144:

“My goodness and my fortress, my high tower and my deliverer: my shield, and He in whom I trust…”
