This upcoming Sunday is a little different in that we are choosing songs with an emphasis on theme rather than looking at songs that are objective, or subjective.

Pastor Larry is going to be preaching on the Trinity this Sunday as part of his Back to Basics sermon series, so we picked some of the songs with that in mind. Below is the set list for Sunday.

Hallelujah (Your Love is Amazing)

Glory to God Forever

Praise the Father, Praise the Son

How Great is Our God

Offertory – To the Only God

It is actually a little bit different for me to choose songs based on theme. Usually, I am thinking about the dymanics of a worship set and how songs will bring someone from where they are currently at, to an understanding of the greatness of God, and hopefully to a time of closeness with God where they can respond to the work of the Holy Spirit. This week there is the added dimension of also looking at how a song expresses the Trinity. Praise the Father, Praise the Son is a new one for our church, but it has a great chorus that is easy to sing and catch on to:

Praise the Father, Praise the Son, Praise the Spirit, three in one, clothed in power and in grace, the name above all other names.

How Great is our God speaks of the trinity in the second verse when it says, “The Godhead, three in one, Father, Spirit, Son, The Lion and the Lamb, the Lion and the Lamb.

We are also going to sing a song during offering called “To the Only God” which is a great song off of the Glory Revealed project, taken directly from Jude 24-25
