Evolution of Worship Music – A Cappella Medley

November 3, 2019

Be Thou my vision O Lord of my heart Not be all else to me save that Thou art Thou my best thought by day or by night Waking or sleeping Thy presence my light O praise Him, O praise Him Hallelujah, hallelujah Hallelu Let goods and kindred go This mortal life also The body they may kill God’s truth abideth still His kingdom is forever Praise to the Lord the Almighty the King of creation O my soul praise Him for He is thy health and salvation Amazing grace how sweet the sound That saved a wretch like me I once was lost But now I’m found Was blind but now I see When darkness seems to hide His face I rest on his unchanging grace In every high and stormy gale My anchor holds holds within the veil And the things of Earth will grow strangely dim In the light of His glory and grace O victory in Jesus my Saviour forever He plunged me to victory Beneath the cleansing flood Burdens are lifted at Calvary Calvary Calvary Burdens are lifted at Calvary Jesus is very near That’s how it is with God’s love Once you’ve experienced it You spread his love to everyone You want to pass it on Soon and very soon We are going to see the King Soon and very soon We are going to see the king hallelujah! Soon and very soon We are going to see the King Hallelujah hallelujah We are going to see the King Our God is an awesome God he reigns From heaven above With wisdom power and love Our God is an awesome God Shout to the Lord all the earth, let us sing Power and majesty praise to the King Mountains bow down and the seas will roar At the sound of Your name I’m trading my sorrows I’m trading my shame I’m laying them down for the joy of the Lord God of wonders beyond our galaxy You are holy, holy Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty Who was and is and is to come Your love never fails, it never gives up Never runs out on me Your love never fails, it never gives up Never runs out on me And I will call upon Your name And keep my eyes above the waves When oceans rise My soul will rest in your embrace For I am Yours And You’re a good good Father It’s who You are And I’m loved by You Our God is the Lion, the Lion of Judah He’s roaring with power And fighting our battles And every knee will bow before Him I’ve seen You move You move the mountains And I believe I’ll see You do it again You made a way Where there was no way And I believe I’ll see You do it again I’ll see You do it again Lord I believe Heart of my own heart, whatever befall Still be my vision O Ruler of all If you’re still watching that means you’ve made it through almost 1500 years of Christian music This video was a lot of fun to make It was a lot of work and it took a long time and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the generous support of my patrons on Patreon Especially by super patron Marsha Hansen.

    Anyone can give me the list of the music in this video?

  • Reply TheJaguar1983 October 29, 2019 at 10:35 am

    It's say worship songs have gotten simpler over time, but I think most of that is in line with music in general. Also, the oldest songs were made for big choirs whereas modern ones are more targeted to the average person.

  • Reply J Greenough October 29, 2019 at 10:58 am

    Thank you, David, for this creative way of demonstrating the progression of worship music – very entertaining and creative! I had no idea there were beatbox beats in 1939! πŸ™‚ I look forward to showing my students. Thank you for the detail list of each piece – very helpful and good selections! Keep using your talents for the Lord (love A Cappella music!).

  • Reply SkyNuts October 29, 2019 at 12:15 pm

    Okay but seriously, worship music is literally some of the best music. It's a genre full of songs that aren't made to be sold, to be criticised or become worldwide hits, they're just there for people to express themselves as Christians and proclaim their love for God. And that's actually so amazing it's hard to believe at times
