Sunday Setlist - March 21
Here's this week's Sunday recap from Gospel Light Community Church:
Blessed Assurance (Crosby/Knapp)(D)
Tell the World (Houston)(G)
Glory to God Forever (Fee/Beeching)(B)
O Praise Him (All This for a King)(Crowder)(Bb)
Agnus Dei (Smith)(G)
Revelation Song (Riddle)(D)
Victory Chant (Vogles)(G>A)
The idea with two weeks to Easter was praising Jesus, and that's the theme of this week's setlist. It was guitar and drums only today, so everything had a bit of rocked-out feel to it. A lot of the women were away at their encounter weekend, so I felt fine turning the volume up a bit.
"Agnus Dei" is a tune that we haven't done in awhile. I know a lot of churches don't sing "alleluia" songs during Lent, but we've never held to that convention. And it felt right as we anticipate Jesus to sing it. We do it acoustic, but in a Third Day style, so it really resonates. The transition into "Revelation Song" went really well, and kept the flow going. (I really like that song.)
"Victory Chant" is another "oldie-but-goody" kind of song. Since it was an offering song, I played it really dirty, lots of overdrive and distortion, with a Bo Diddley beat to it. Very George Thorogood-ish. (Think "Who Do You Love.") We start in G, and modulate up to A in the "Glory, glory" line. Nice.
Next Sunday we'll be playing three churches - our usual twice-monthly awsomesauce at LFC, our church, and then the "official" launch of our church plant in the Bronx, Good News Christian Church. Plus I'll be preaching. Busy Palm Sunday coming up!
