“Having a worship experience”.
Yes that’s what the praise leader said.
And true there was song and agreement
From those who had come here half-dead.
The instruments artfully joining
To pluck at each singer’s heartstrings,
And soon there were tears and hand-raising.
“Oh listen, the Bride of Christ sings!”
And each celebrant felt a presence
To talk about after that night.
They “got” something truly “anointed”
But did they “give ” praises aright?
For worship is all about giving
Our Lord must receive blessing first
From hearts pouring out adoration
And quenching a righteousness thirst.
And if there are tears, it’s the Spirit
Accepting a sacrifice rare
And having His way with the music
And moving through those gathered there.
