WAY MAKER

Written by Osinachi Joseph, popularly known as Sinach

This song has moved rapidly across the world as an anthem for the church. Originally written by Nigerian-born gospel music singer, Osinachi Joseph, it has now been recorded by artists like Leeland, Bethel Music, and many more. It is a song of faith and belief in our God who has made a way for generations past and for the future. The melody is easy for congregations to catch on to and the lyrics empower worshippers as they declare who God is over their lives and their circumstances.

VERSE 1

You are here, moving in our midst

I worship You, I worship You

You are here, working in this place

I worship You, I worship You

 

CHORUS

Way maker, miracle worker, promise keeper

Light in the darkness, My God, that is who You are

 

VERSE 2

You are here, touching every heart

I worship You, I worship You

You are here, healing every heart

I worship You, I worship You

You are here, turning lives around

I worship You, I worship You

You are here, mending every heart

I worship You, I worship You

 

BRIDGE

Even when I don’t see it, You’re working

Even when I don’t feel it, You’re working

You never stop, You never stop working

You never stop, You never stop working


 


 

SEE A VICTORY

Written by Ben Fielding, Chris Brown, Steven Furtick, and Jason Ingram

See A Victory is one of the most popular new songs from Elevation Worship, which is based out of a thriving multi-site church in Charlotte, NC. The church’s senior pastor, Steven Furtick, joins in songwriting for their worship ministry. This song stirs up faith for the present while singing about what is promised to come in the future. It is a song for people that need faith for a hard season. It’s a declaration of faith in the victory Christ has already accomplished. The chorus will be easy to catch on to as your congregation learns this powerful song of hope. Then the bridge solidifies the truth we are promised that everything works together for good for those who love God and have been called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)

 

VERSE 1

The weapon may be formed, but it won’t prosper

When the darkness falls, it won’t prevail

‘Cause the God I serve knows only how to triumph

My God will never fail, oh, my God will never fail

 

CHORUS

I’m gonna see a victory

I’m gonna see a victory

For the battle belongs to You, Lord

 

VERSE 2

There’s power in the mighty name of Jesus

Every war He wages He will win

I’m not backing down from any giant

‘Cause I know how this story ends, yes, I know how this story ends

 

BRIDGE

You take what the enemy meant for evil

And You turn it for good, You turn it for good

You take what the enemy meant for evil

And You turn it for good, You turn it for good



 

RAISE A HALLELUJAH

Written by Jonathan David Helser, Melissa Helser, and Molly Skaggs

If you are looking for a song for your church to rally around, you have found it with Raise A Hallelujah. This song is full of energetic praise in the midst of uncertainty and strengthens faith as it is sung. It is a declaration from the middle of a trying season of devastation that nothing will steal our worship for the Lord. It is a battle song from the valley, but it leaves you filled with joy. This is a song that every church needs in its rotation. The story behind the song is also one you will want to share with your worship team and church for an even deeper connection when singing these lyrics in worship. Raise A Hallelujah was written in the midst of a near-tragic medical situation with Jaxon, a little boy at Bethel Church in Redding, CA. The Bethel Music team and the global church community rose up like a mighty army, joining in prayer and worship for his healing. Watch his parents testimony here: https://youtu.be/fqlgKWZf4ak and here is the songwriting story from its writers: https://youtu.be/awkO61T6i0k

 

VERSE 1

I raise a hallelujah, in the presence of my enemies

I raise a hallelujah, louder than the unbelief

I raise a hallelujah, my weapon is a melody

I raise a hallelujah, heaven comes to fight for me

 

CHORUS

I’m gonna sing, in the middle of the storm

Louder and louder, you’re gonna hear my praises roar

Up from the ashes, hope will arise

Death is defeated, the King is alive!

 

VERSE 2

I raise a hallelujah, with everything inside of me

I raise a hallelujah, I will watch the darkness flee

I raise a hallelujah, in the middle of the mystery

I raise a hallelujah, fear you lost your hold on me!

 

BRIDGE

Sing a little louder, sing a little louder

Sing a little louder, sing a little louder 

Sing a little louder, in the presence of my enemies

Sing a little louder, louder than the unbelief

Sing a little louder, my weapon is a melody

Sing a little louder, heaven comes to fight for me

Sing a little louder!

 


BUILD MY LIFE

Written by Pat Barrett, Matt Redman, Brett Younker, Kirby Kaple, Karl Martin

This is a great song of vertical praise. When you need a moment of reverence and awe, this chorus is perfect to sing out. It is a song of adoration and praise for our holy King. This song has a great melody that is easy to catch on to and the lyrics help posture our hearts in humble worship as the lyrics remind us of God’s love as a foundation for our lives. It is also a declaration of the worth of God and the power of the name of Jesus. It also prompts the worshippers to ask for a deeper revelation of God’s holiness so that they may become more like Jesus as they grow to know Him more. This song became widely popular after being sung at the Passion Conference with upwards of 50,000 college students attending in Atlanta, GA.

 

VERSE 1

Worthy of every song we could ever sing

Worthy of all the praise we could ever bring

Worthy of every breath we could ever breathe, We live for you

Jesus the name above every other name

Jesus the only one who could save

Worthy of every breath we could ever breathe, We live for you, We live for you

 

CHORUS

Holy there is no one like you

There is none beside you

Open up my eyes in wonder

Show me who you are and fill me

With your heart and lead me

In your love to those around me

 

BRIDGE

And I will build my life upon your love it is a firm foundation

And I will put my trust in you alone, and I will not be shaken


 


WHO YOU SAY I AM

Written by Reuben Morgan, Ben Fielding

You’ve probably heard this song already, but if you haven’t added it to your rotation at church, you should. It’s a great upbeat song that is filled with the joy of knowing we are adopted as sons and daughters of God. It is a very inclusive song declaring that everyone has a place in the house of the Father and He is waiting to receive them with open arms. This song is perfect to declare the goodness of God’s fatherly love and affirm our identity as His Church. This is only one of the countless anthems for the Church coming out of Hillsong Church in Australia over the years like Shout To The Lord, Mighty To Save, O Praise The Name, What A Beautiful Name, and So Will I.

 

VERSE 1

Who am I that the highest King

Would welcome me?

I was lost but He brought me in

Oh His love for me, Oh His love for me

 

CHORUS

Who the Son sets free

Oh is free indeed

I’m a child of God, yes I am

In my Father’s house there’s a place for me 

I’m a child of God, yes I am

 

Free at last, He has ransomed me

His grace runs deep

While I was a slave to sin

Jesus died for me, Yes He died for me

 

BRIDGE

I am chosen, not forsaken

I am who You say I am

You are for me, not against me

I am who You say I am


 

There are many wonderful worship songs available for the church to sing today. These are just a few that have made their way around the globe in local churches far and wide. When looking for church music, search for songs that will not only impact your local congregation but also songs being sung around the world in the global Church. It’s beautiful when the body of Christ unites with one voice through the power of worship.

If you are a worship leader or pastor, you have the responsibility to pick the lyrics your church sings in their worship services and gatherings. We encourage worship leaders to choose worship song lyrics that will encourage, challenge, empower, and uplift their congregations and the communities they serve week in and week out. Worship teams and church media teams have a great privilege of choosing the songs their churches will sing, leading them, and engaging them with creative arts and visual media for worship services.

We hope these songs will only be the beginning of the great worship setlists that your team will use to lead people to God’s throne of mercy and grace this year. May we all steward our gifts well and enjoy leading others to Jesus through worship music every Sunday.
