Lift High by Steve Fee

Today’s strong worship song is Lift High by Steve Fee. This song is on the We Shine album by the group Fee released in 2007. It is a solid worship song. “When Broken people call His name”  is an accurate and beautiful description of worship. Scriptures references include Psalm 2, Psalm 24, Psalm 121, Psalm 123, Isaiah 49:18, Isaiah 60:4, and Luke 21:28.

Broken people call His name
Helpless children praise the King
Nothing brings Him greater fame
When broken people call His name

Lift high, your chains undone
All rise, exalt the Son
Jesus Christ, the Holy One
We lift our eyes to You

Sinners all exalt the Son
Your ransom paid and freedom won
We will see His Kingdom Come
When sinners all exalt the Son

[Repeat Chorus]

Lift up your heads
Oh oh oh lift up your heads
Look on Him
Lift up your heads
Oh oh oh lift up your heads
Look on Him
Lift up your heads
Oh oh oh lift up your heads
Look on Him

Lift up your heads
Oh oh oh lift up your heads
Look on Him
Lift up your heads
Oh oh oh lift up your heads
Look on him
Lift up your heads
Oh oh oh lift up your heads

Lift high, your chains undone
All rise, exalt the Son
Jesus Christ, the Holy One
Lift high, your chains undone
All rise, exalt the Son
Jesus Christ, the Holy One
We lift our eyes to You
We lift our eyes to You

Overflow by Matt Maher

Today’s strong worship song is Overflow by Matt Maher which came out in 2008. Unlike most of Matt’s songs, this one hasn’t gotten much air time or YouTube attention. It is a great song, however and fun to sing. Matt intended it  be a Communion song with references to the Lord’s cup, body, and blood.  The lyrics also correctly depicts God’s blessings of grace & love overflowing into our lives.

Scripture references include Deuteronomy 6:5, Mark 12:30, Luke 10:27, Romans 15:13, 2 Corinthians 4:15, 2 Corinthians 8:2, 2 Corinthians 9:12, Philippians 1:26, Colossians 2:7, James 1:17, and 1 Thessalonians 3:12.

Overflow

Your grace is power, your will forever,
your love is a river; overflow in me.

Your word: true presence. Your body: our recompense.
Your blood: salvation; overflow in me.

Refrain
Overflow in me, my Lord, overflow in me, my Lord.
Let your people bless you as your cup is poured;
overflow in me, my Lord, overflow in me, my Lord.

Your worship of you, its your gift to us from you.
No one could give this gift but you; overflow in me.

Bridge
We lift up our hearts. We lift up our souls.
We lift up our minds. Every good thing is yours.
Yeah, every good thing is yours, so overflow. Oh,

Final Refrain
Overflow in me, my Lord, overflow in me, my Lord.
Let your people bless you as your cup is poured;
overflow in me, my Lord, overflow in me, my Lord.
Overflow in me, my Lord. Overflow. Oh.
Overflow in me, my Lord. Overflow in me, my Lord.
Overflow in me, my Lord.
