i'm ready (new song)

(listening to coldplay, the beatles)

i think intended with worship should be the readiness for God's presence. and as a worship leader i think there are a few things that you could do as a worship leader for the people to be ready to worship.

1. there should be some sort of invitation, whether it be a verbal invitation to worship by the leader, a count down on the slide show, a loud intro to a song... something should give the worshipers a call. and the way they answer is worship.

2. the worshipers should be drawn in. the words, melody line, guitar riff, piano line... something should give the worshipers a feeling of connection. and the way they respond is worship.

3. above all, the worshipers should have a implantation to want to worship from God. God should have divinely placed a wanting of a further connection with Him in the worshiper. i believe that God has placed this implantation of wanting in each and everyone of us. it just takes recognition of God, understanding what He has said to you, and understanding of worship. from the core of us, we each have the voice of God beating at the same frequency as our hearts, we just have to slow down and listen.

with all that aside, through my ideas behind the concept of worship, i have written lyrics to a new song. here it goes.

i'm ready (theme: worship the glory)

don't hide Your face from me
i'm ready
shine your light through me
i'm ready

pre ch.
to shout from the mountain tops
sing from the highest heights
for you

i'm going beyond myself
to meet you God.
to worship in the glory
of a God higher than all

reveal you love to me
i'm ready
You gave Your life for me and
i'm ready

i feel You coming
i feel You coming
i feel You coming
i know You're here.

  1. v2 reveal youR love to me?

  2. Great advice to worship leaders in the beginning. Nicely said.
    The words seem to have good rhythm and are quite focused thematically! Great job!
    I'm still drinking in the meaning of the first 2 lines of your chorus. I am 100% sold on the 2nd 2 lines of the chorus though!
    Can we hear the audio?
