I have the great honor and privilege to lead services every Sunday at my home church, Christ Community Church - Leawood Campus. I get the opportunity to work with some terrific musicians and spirit-filled worship teams and every once in a while I contribute a song that gets added into our church's "songbook." "Come Sing for Joy," is one of my latest that, as I like to say, wrote me rather than I wrote it. Charts and lead sheets are available on the charts/resources page.
The first verse focuses on creation’s praise (Psalm 98:7-8) and invites the worshiper to join with all creation in lifting this song of God’s salvation. The chorus sings of God’s deliverance of all things through Jesus and his ultimate deliverance as the King who will come again.
The second verse invites the worshiper to sing over those who cannot, at this time, sing this song for themselves (the lost, the least, the weak, the poor), while the final chorus points to the day when all will be put to right and God’s justice will be made known to all of creation.
