This Song. Your Church. Please Sing.

 

There is much to be said about the songs we sing in our churches, especially when it comes to being overly critical. I am guilty of this beyond what I care to confess.

But I’ve been personally inspired and drawn to Christ’s hope with a new song by Elevation Worship. Why? Because it’s one of those rare and unique songs that invites people who once experienced the joy and majesty of God to declare that it’ll happen again, even if it’s not happening now.

This beautiful song invites people who once experienced the joy of the Lord to remind themselves that it’ll happen again, even if it’s not happening in their lives now.

Too many of our songs of worship invite us to pretend that we feel the closeness and goodness of God, even when we don’t. But not this song.

“Do It Again” gives me hope in the future, not only a future in heaven, but one day on earth too. It invites me to proclaim that the night won’t last, that change will come, and that the walls won’t stand forever. It reminds me of the mountains that God has moved in my past, and gives me the words to believe that He isn’t finished moving other mountains on my behalf, all for His glory.

I don’t think I’m exaggerating to estimate that at least half of the people in our congregations everywhere need to proclaim this message as they sing. We are in desperate need of artists and lyricists who give words to people in pain – words that make clear sense, especially when the events of our lives do not. It’s not just about proclaiming truth in our songs of worship. It’s about the truth we proclaim as we sing.

I hope this one makes it into your set list, or at least into your “Songs to Introduce Soon” list. It’s long, and you can chop it down quite easily. I believe that God will be honored, and that a larger-than-expected segment of people will find a place where they don’t feel like they’re the only ones who aren’t experiencing what everyone else seems to be experiencing.

Tree of Life by Playback Media

This motion features a beautiful silhouette of a single tree full of branches and leaves. The tree is a beautiful shade of orange with a white background. Subtle grungy texture moves slowly inside the tree. There are also faint light and dust particles that drift down from the top of the tree. The warm hues help set a peaceful serene feeling. This is a gorgeous background to help set a calm meditative mood for any setting and is a great background for any time of the year!
