Steve Schallert is Kickstarting a worship album, and you should check it out. He led worship for my Discipleship Training School when I was first in YWAM, so I can tell you from experience that he facilitates some uniquely personal and justice-minded worship. In his own words…
“‘SONGS OF SORROW / SONGS OF HOPE’ is my attempt to reaffirm the place of lamentation within the world of congregational worship music. My prayer is that these songs, songs written all over the world in all kind of circumstances, will be both a comfort and a challenge to communities of faith. A comfort and affirmation for all of us who mourn and struggle and weep and doubt and a challenge for us all to love deeper and wider and more recklessly. These are songs of tension and weakness, songs of compassion and praise and protest… and I invite you to join me as I seek to bring them to life.”
On this mountain By the water No one else can touch her But God
On This Mountain | the Soil & the Sun
Grace for Succesion | Extol
Now we are come to the sun’s hour of rest; The lights of evening round us shine; We hymn the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit divine!
Phos Hilaron | Imago Dei Music
Someone, someone tell me what we’re fighting for Anyone, anyone, anyone can start a war No one can walk away No one can walk away truly alive
Someone Anyone | Anberlin
I don’t deserve your grace
Sills | Heard in the Mountains
Do you accept me? When we both know my past.
Closer | Anberlin
The question hangs, faith hinging on the answer The words come easily, as if we’ve known it for forever
Who Do You Say I Am? | Pas Neos
I can finally breathe. Suddenly alive. I can finally move. The world feels revived.
Breathe | Anberlin
Part of me is unending, hear it say, I love you, I love you, I love you
