We’ve Come To Worship You

Milton Brunson and The Thompson Community Singers (“The Tommies”) never fail to please, and this is The Tommies at their best!  This song is not only great and sung well, but the END OF THE SONG is not to be missed.  SOOOO powerful…they hold the last notes seemingly for ever…okay, 11 seconds which seems an eternity…and they are so strong.

Take a listen. I think you’ll agree this is a “keepa”.

Wash Me

I love John P. Kee.  A reformed thug and drug dealer from Durham North Carolina, Kee turned his life around and became an international gospel sensation in the 1990’s. His choir is always excellent and several of his family members are in his band. Kee always brings his all to every performance.

Praise Him

I believe this is the third version of this song I’ve posted because I love it so much. Maranatha Gospel is a group that sings primarily praise and worship songs, usually those that are popular in large evangelistic churches.  

This version is incredibly good…the beginning is like most versions of the song (the song was composed by Donny Harper, Director of The New Jersey Mass Choir), but then at 2:40 the song breaks into a wonderful, almost endless (well, 2 minute long) vamp that is unique to this version, and it makes the song great!

Jesus Promised

Another version of one of my favorite songs, “Jesus Promised”.  The original version I posted is by The Chicago Mass Choir and I’ve provided a link to that as well.

Use Me

You know I LOVE Youth Choirs and The Soul Children of Chicago are among the very best. Give the song time…the opening solo isn’t riveting (IMHO) but once the choir comes in it’s great…USE ME, have Thine own way, USE ME as an instrument of praise!

If I had ten thousand tongues,
I’d praise You with every one.
If I could fly to the uttermost parts of the world,
I’d spread the good news of Your greatness.

If I could blow like the wind,
if I could roar like the sea,
I’d perform for You a symphony.
But since I have none of these,
I’ll just use what You gave to me;
but whatever I use, whatever You choose,
I’ll use it to say thank You Lord.

Chorus
Use me as an instrument of praise
(so I might praise Your name)
and it won’t be in vain.

(Use me) so someone can see
the light that shineth, that shineth in me.

Use me as an instrument of praise,
so that I might worship You.

Vamp 1
Whenever I pray, use me.
Whatever I say, speak through me.

Vamp 2
Use me, have Thine own way,
use me as an instrument of praise.

Thank You For Your Healing

Here is one more from Twinkie Clark’s “Praise and Worship” live album released in 2006. She does write some great songs.

In Your Presence

Twinkie Clark (nee Elbertina) is the eldest daughter of Mattie Moss Clark who was Director of the Music Department for The Church of God in Christ.  With her sisters, Twinkie headed the Clark Sister who had a huge impact on contemporary gospel. Twinkie was well versed as an organist and could make the B3 be a true instrument of praise.  This song showcases Twinkie’s talents.

I Need You

Dr. Jonathan Greer II was born and raised in Chicago, where as a child he ministered along his father. He later served as the church’s organist and choir director, eventually recording for the Nashboro label. Greer turned away from music as he accepted a pastorship in Nashville, next leading the Cathedral of Faith church in Atlanta. After a 12-year hiatus from recording, he signed with Malaco to release “He’s Worthy” in 1990, followed three years later by “Just Jesus”. This song is from the “Just Jesus” album.

This song is like so many gospel songs that starts out very quiet and sedate and builds and builds into a wonderful finale.
