The Perfect Song for Worship

Posted by undergroundchurch on August 14, 2011


An unfortunate side effect of our American definition of worship is that we equate it with music.  However, music is just a tool, albeit an effective tool in conditioning the emotions of the believer to be more in tune to worship God.

If you really look at the words in the songs we use in worship, you will find that most are more about us or about what God does for us or relate to God in a second or third person and really promote deeper worship.

All that said, there come songs every so often that are excellent for worship.  I personally prefer “free worship” songs, which are songs that don’t follow written music, but allow the Spirit of God to lead the worshiper in the experience.

But if you need a worship song that is about as good as they come that follows a standard written pattern, this is the song for you.

Here are the reasons why I would qualify this as the “perfect” song for worship.

  1. The music is emotionally stirring. (Don’t let anyone fool you, the music has to stir our hearts.)
  2. It looks at God and man and compares his awesome nature to man’s and God wins.
  3. It reflects the only place where worship can occur… in His presence.
  4. The Chorus beautifully wraps the idea of the importance of the presence of God concisely
  5. The bridge is exceptional.  It can be, and is, repeated and repeated and repeated in a time of powerful worship where it is just you and God with you just telling him how, beautiful, marvelous, glorious, matchless in every way he is.
  6. The words are written to God, not about God or about what we can get from God.
  7. It is all about Him.
Found in Your hands, fullness of joy
Every fear suddenly wiped away here in Your presence
All of my gains now fade away
Every crown no longer on display, here in Your presence
Heaven is trembling in awe of Your wonders
The kings and their kingdom arestanding amazedChorus:
Here in Your presence, we are undone
Here in Your presence, Heaven and Earth become one
Here in Your presence, all things are new
Here in Your presence, everything bows before You

Bridge:
Wonderful, beautiful, glorious, matchlessin every way
Wonderful, beautiful, glorious, matchlessin every way
