'New Song' News

 

 

This page will periodically feature new worship songs of praise, thanksgiving, love, delight in God (as Father, Son and Holy Spirit) -- songs to sing from the heart.

 

 

Whatever type of music you use for worship, be sure that it has relational clarity:

Low-key music should not dampen but deepen our thoughts and feelings to more intimate connections with God. Upbeat music should not deaden (numb with sensory stimulation) but enliven by stirring our hearts to open to the heart of God.

 

 

Songs for His glory!

Jesus promised not to leave his disciples alone as orphans, and so the Spirit was sent as his relational replacement to be with us forever (Jn 14:16-18). Therefore, the whole of God--Father, Son, and Spirit--is ongoingly present and involved with us as family (v.23). Yet, to experience being family together cannot happen with only God's intimate involvement, as if in a unilateral relationship; God's family requires the compatible relational response of our whole person, vulnerably from inner out, to the whole of God who is vulnerably involved with us for face-to-face, heart-to-heart relationship (Mt 15:8-9; Rom 8:15-16). Worship is our reciprocal relational response with nothing less and no substitutes. We hope all the songs here encourage you to worship the whole of God as the Father's daughters and sons, with Jesus, in the Spirit--intimately involved with God in likeness of how God is with us! And may God be blessed by your whole reciprocal relational response.

 1.   O God, your heart has opened
       for us to know your innermost.
O God, your heart now present
       with us to experience, no less,
       all involved not less—undivided.

 

Chorus 1:

       Praise the Undivided Heart
       of God’s whole presence.
Thank the Undivided Heart,
       of God’s whole involvement—
       Yes, the Undivided Heart,
              God’s presence and involvement!

 

2.   O God, you want our heart open
       for you to know our innermost.
O God, you want us unveiled
       for you to experience no less,
       us involved and yes—undivided.

 

Chorus 2:

       Praise with undivided heart
       our God’s whole presence.
Thank with undivided heart
       our God’s whole involvement—
       with our undivided heart
              in reciprocal response!

 

3.   Let not our heart be divided,
       some parts here and some over there.
Let all of me be present
       for you, my God, to have me now
       all involved, not less—undivided.

 

Chorus 3:

       Undivided Heart,
       be praised in reciprocal response,
Undivided Heart,
       be thanked in relationship together—
       undivided heart
              of relationship with you.

 

O, O, O, as One, yes whole! O, O, yes, no veil, not in parts, undivided! (repeat as desired)

 

Finale:

       O, Undivided Heart
You, Undivided Heart
       Our Undivided Heart
       My undivided heart
             Yes, all whole together!
