Sunday Setlist - June 14
Here's this week's list from Gospel Light Community Church.
Revelation Song (Riddle)(G)
Tell the World (Douglass/Houston/Sampson)(G)
We Cry Out (Johnson)(C#)
For Who You Are (Sampson)(B)
The Stand (Houston)(G)
Came to My Rescue (Davies/Sampson/Thomas)
Wow, what a day. The service went really well today, especially the worship segment. Rehearsal was a bit rough, as the musicians seemed to be having a hard time finding the pocket, and Josh was straining to hit some notes.
None of that was apparent in service. Everything really flowed well, and the worship really soared. "We Cry Out" continues to be an amazing song of ministry to so many people. We hold nothing back when playing it, and still it's all about what the song is saying that really engages people.
For the "For Who You Are" and "The Stand" especially, I was in tone Nirvana, hitting things just as I wanted. There was such a good balance with the piano today, it was amazing. On "The Stand," I used the same trick I used last week with the reverse delay, giving a heavy, cello-like string sound in the verses, a clean channel for the walkup in the prechorus, and then some Bad Monkey overdrive when the chorus begins to pick up. We then dropped all the istruments and let the voices sing out. (this is where I switched to acoustic for the next song)
The congregation was so engaged at this point, that when we got to the lyric "Falling on my knees in worship..." on the next song, many people were already on their knees. As I looked over the room, I saw tears and lifted hands. But I was in my own worship space, too, so maybe I was doing the same.
