WORSHIP AT HOME: The Digital Hymnal
DIGITAL HYMNAL OF THE DAY … as we consider how to “Worship at Home,” what hymnals can we use that will fill our “church at home” with beautiful, uplifting, and inspiring music?
I would like to suggest that YouTube could fulfill this task. For the next 40 days, we will do a “Top 40 Countdown” of the most popular and the most frequent worship songs in use in the USA, according to the CCLI list.
The song for today – #40:
One of the favorite segments on American Bandstand was “Rate a Record” – where teens would listen to a new song and give it a rating, as in “I give it an 8, because it’s got a beat and you can dance to it.”
As we learn to “Worship at Home” where will we find the music to lift our spirits and touch our hearts with emotion? Each day we will share a “new song” from the 40 most popular in the USA and ask you to rate it from 1-10 in three categories:
– How did it influence you emotionally?
– How did the words inspire you spiritually?
– Would you like to hear it in our worship service?
Please share your ratings and thoughts in the comments below, along with a YouTube link to other versions that you might prefer.
The “Top 40” Christian Worship songs are drawn from the CCLI list of songs actually sung in churches that emphasize contemporary Christian worship over the past 12 months.
