Welcome to sojournmusic.com’s weekly worship music set list review. You can find links to the set lists of this church and many other churches each week in the Worship Blog Carnival at theworshipcommunity.com. And you can learn about some of the songs we sing at Sojourn Gathered each week in advance of the Sunday service by reading my “Getting Ready For Sunday” post each Thursday at Sojourn’s online journal, TravelBlog. This set list recap begins with the first song following the Call To Worship (our sets often begin with a pre-Call To Worship song that is “band leader’s choice,” and so is different in each campus). Some additional variations in the music sets may have taken place in each service/campus.

1. King Of Glory by Chris Tomlin. This popular modern praise song, based on Psalm 24, is a great response to God’s Call To Worship:
Lift up your hands, be lifted up
Let the redeemed declare the love
We bow down at heaven’s gate
To kiss the feet of hope and grace
All Your ways are loving, faithful
Lord, to those who seek Your face
You give grace to the humble hearted
And instruct them in Your ways
3. Here Is Love by William Rees and Robert Lowry, with modern bridge by Matt Redman. We sang this as a song of assurance, prior to engaging in the Passing Of The Peace and then hearing the first sermon in a month-long miniseries on Ephesians and Philippians.
Here is Love, vast as the ocean.
Lovingkindness as the flood
When the Prince of Life, our Ransom
Shed for us His precious blood
4. The Wonderful Cross by Chris Tomlin, adapted from Isaac Watts’ hymn “When I Survey The Wondrous Cross.” We sang this together as we came forward in lines to receive the weekly communion meal, following the sermon:
When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died
My richest gain I count but loss
And pour contempt on all my pride
5. Clean (My God Has Rescued Me) by Michael J. Pritzl of The Violet Burning. This is one of the longest-running songs for worship at Sojourn Gathered. It’s a simple, upbeat of song of praise. We sang it after our baptism ceremony (we witnessed baptisms of fellow believers at all but one of our services). At Sojourn Gathered, we hear the testimonies of those being baptized before they go down into the water, and we celebrate together as they complete the sacred symbol by “rising to new life”. You can read these baptism testimonies, and other testimonies and stories of salvation, at our online journal, TravelBlog (the blog within sojournchurch.com).
My God has rescued me
Taken my life and made me clean
Opened my eyes so I can see
My God has rescued me
Let all the moons and all the stars
in all the universe
Sing praises to the living God
Who rules them by His Word
