I love it when timeless hymns are given new life and vigor. Not that the original song was old-fashioned or out-dated, but sometimes a new bridge or chorus to a traditional hymn allows it to speak to a new generation in a fresh way. I feel like this is true for the hymn “Jesus Paid it All” with Passion Music’s new bridge added to it.
Continuing on in our theme of celebrating God’s saving work on the cross and our salvation, today’s song for “Here I Am to Worship” is a powerful declaration and anthem of Christ’s victory over death.
We’re in the middle of Passion Week. Palm Sunday has passed, and we looked at the empty praise Jesus’ followers gave Him that memorable day over two thousand years ago and the take-aways we can glean from that event. Good Friday is before us and all that it represents, along with Jesus’ struggle in the garden of Gethsemane. And beyond that is the glory of the Resurrection, the empty tomb, and the finished work. So it’s appropriate that this week’s song for “Here I Am to Worship” should cover all these highlights from Passion Week.
Now that we have learned to appropriately prepare our hearts for worship, let’s dive into actually worshipping the Lord through song. The plan is to share one song each week and build a worship set of four songs each month. However, since we’re in mid-March, we will wait until April to start the first worship set.
In the meantime, I have a couple of powerful songs I’d like to share with you as we get ready for Resurrection Sunday and all that it stands for. Today’s worship song is “Behold the Lamb” by Passion Worship.
