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.

God Is A Good God

Bishop Paul Sylvester Morton who leads rhe choir was born on July 30, 1950 is an American Baptist Pastor and the Senior Pastor of Changing a Generation Full Gospel Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia, and Co-Pastor of Greater St. Stephen Full Gospel Baptist Church in New Orleans, Louisiana.  I love this choir!

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.

No Greater Love

I’m back after a short hiatus.  I’ve always said that one of the very best contemporary gospel groups is Ricky Dillard and his New Generation Chorale.  Their work is ALWAYS outstanding and this cut is no exception.
