“When all things that surround become shadows….”

My Favourite Worship Songs

Worship is one of the greatest gifts that God gives, especially so because in the act of worship we’re actually giving it back to Him. As a worship leader, I have of course heard, learned and played hundreds of worship songs, some good, some not so good.

But, just occasionally, a real gem comes along. As I say on my website Vintage Worship Tapes.com, each tape in those days had at least one outstanding song on it. On the tapes Let Your Spirit Rise and Lift Up His Banner were published my two all-time favourite worship songs, ‘When I look into Your Holiness’ and ‘Great is the Lord’. Here they are, the original and (to me) definitive versions of these two classic songs. In my opinion, these are the two finest worship songs that have ever been written. Feel free to worship along with the music…..

When I Look into Your Holiness

When I look into Your Holiness
When I gaze into Your loveliness
When all things that surround become shadows in the light of You
When I’ve found the joy of reaching Your Heart
When my will becomes enthroned in Your Love
When all things that surround become shadows in the light of You

I worship You, I worship You
The reason I live is to worship You
I worship You, I worship You
The reason I live is to worship You

Great is the Lord

Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise
The City of our God, the Holy Place
The joy of the whole earth
Great is the Lord in whom we have the victory
He aids us against the enemy
We bow down on our knees

And Lord we want to lift Your Name up high
And Lord we want to thank You for the works You’ve done in our lives
And Lord we trust in Your unfailing Love
For You alone are God Eternal
Throughout earth and Heaven above

 

It is my sincere hope that these two glorious songs bless you and help you into God’s Presence. Where all things that surround become mere shadows. There’s no place else I’d rather be.
