Sunday Setlist (June 13, 2010)

June 13, 2010

Enjoyed worshiping with the people of Greentree Christian Church today. I was blessed to have the opportunity to lead worship at the 10:30am service. Had some minor issues with being able to hear myself over some of the other sounds mixed into my monitor but that’s more my issue than anything else and easily fixed for next time. The highlight of the song setlist today for me was being able to sing with three ladies who put together such beautiful harmony Especially during our singing of the beautiful hymn, It is Well With My Soul. Once again, I’m so grateful to be able to be a part of such a talented worship team. Sarah, Jana and Elaine, thanks so much for your service and your heart for lifting the name of Jesus high above all other names!

10:30 Service Setlist

  • Opening Song: Oh Praise Him (David Crowder)
  • Agnus Dei (Michael W. Smith)
  • It is Well With My Soul Vs. 1 & Chorus (Horatio Spafford)
  • Draw Me Close (Michael W. Smith)
  • It is Well With My Soul Vs. 6 & Chorus
  • Closing Song: It is Well With My Soul Vs. 3 & Chorus w/ Draw Me Close Chorus Reprise

We wove above middle four songs together playing them all in the Key of A and it worked out really nicely. The girls led into the first verse of It is Well With My Soul after Agnus Dei and it was just a really simple and sweet melody that the congregation seemed to really love singing. Everything seemed to flow pretty nicely. For me, it was one of those Sundays where I could have just kept singing the words found in that beautiful old hymn. I’ve posted the lyrics to it below. Just reading them whether you’re familiar with the melody or not, sort of takes me into the excitement that the writer must have felt as he penned the words.

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Chorus

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

Chorus

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

Chorus

For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:
If Jordan above me shall roll,
No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life
Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.

Chorus

But, Lord, ‘tis for Thee, for Thy coming we wait,
The sky, not the grave, is our goal;
Oh trump of the angel! Oh voice of the Lord!
Blessèd hope, blessèd rest of my soul!

Chorus

And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.

Chorus

Pulled the historical account of this song off of www.cyberhymnal.org. It’s amazing!

This hymn was written after two major traumas in Horatio Spafford’s life. The first was the great Chicago Fire of October 1871, which ruined him financially (he had been a wealthy business man). Shortly after, while cross­ing the Atlantic, all four of Spafford’s daughters died in a collision with an other ship. Spafford’s wife Anna survived and sent him the now famous telegram, “Saved alone.” Several weeks later, as Spafford’s own ship passed near the spot where his daughters died, the Holy Spirit inspired these words. They speak to the eternal hope that all believers have, no matter what pain and grief befall them on earth.
