I know I talk a lot about what frustrates me about black Christian music, aka “gospel,” however, today I’ll do the opposite. I don’t want to confuse those of you who know that I am a lover of this music 🙂 .
Although there are a LOT of dumb songs out there, there is something else that’s happening that I love! Has anyone noticed this wave of worship songs taking over?? I love it! If you haven’t read my previous post “Dumb Songs,” then I would highly suggest that you do that to have a point of reference. However, if you’re lazy :-p I’ll give you a VERY brief summary: The lyrical content of a lot of gospel music is self-centered. There are a lot of songs that are out now that [lyrically] I would expect to hear on my local CCM station. These lyrics are rich and totally God-centered, and I love them.
“I give myself away so You can use me….”
“There’s a Voice that cries out in the silence searching for a heart that will love Him….”
“Jesus, the Lamb, the Great I Am; wonderful and matchless King; the Word on whom I stand; giver of life to every man. I lift my hands and worship in Your presence….”
“I will sing praises to You. You’re worthy if everything. I was created to worship You. This is my offering….”
…and many more
These are GOOD songs! What are some recent songs you like?
