Sing Unto the Lord

Driscoll on the coast music

Last night went well. We had to do some songs that everyone would know. We tried these:

Blessed be your name

Nothing but the Blood (Matt Redman)

When I survey

Let your Kingdom come

I thought Let your kingdom come would be a bit of a risk, but people belted it out. We wrote a new bridge for When I survey to sing on the night. It worked nicely having something a bit different in the Hymn. We’ve found that a few times that sticking a new bridge into an old hymn can highlight some of the truths of the hymn in a new way. This was our new bit:

‘On the cross, my Saviour died

Lord of Life now crucified

And all I am belongs to Him

On that cross He bore my sin’

‘When I Survey’ is all about dying to yourself and living for Jesus. The cross humbles you. The cross demands a response.

Mark spoke faithfully and convictingly. I’m looking forward to tonight with some more item-y stuff and a call to non-christians. Be praying.

The bridge at the start didn’t ‘feel’ right to me, it worked much better at the end. That’s just my opinion, though.

We were hoping for the bridge to work at the end – which is why we started with it, to subconsciously make it familiar.
Good point though.

Last night was gold!

I didn’t know the song to begin with, so it seemed to flow all together well!
