It's a beautiful thing, to worship the Lord. You know, it just changes you somehow. I've played with the worship team for so many years and have watched people just stand right where they are, with hands lifted up, and begin to worship their God. It truly is a beautiful thing. But I can't help but wonder if perhaps I'm being changed also, as I watch them worship the King of Kings.
Here's an old song, quite simple in lyrics and meter. It was written in 1978, I Love You, Lord.

Do you remember this one and have you had the opportunity to play it in your ministry? I think sometimes singing a simple song acapella can be so powerful, too. Here's a resource you may be interested in. I have a couple of Fake Books in my library. Do you use them?
