God is Worthy!
Get your praise on…(you should know me by now). Glory to the King of kings!
Praise is fitting for every Believer!
Worship is almost always confused with Praise. Yesterday I shared the differences with you called Praise and Worship: What is the Difference? Today we will look at some praise and worship songs. I would like for you to guess the differences. I will have the answers for you later on. Just focus on the songs.
Let’s do a quick review from yesterday:
In the narrow sense of the word, praise is very distinct from worship because praise doesn’t necessarily have to be directed towards God. We can praise God amongst ourselves by declaring his goodness, but worship must be directed towards God. Praise can be sung about God, but worship must always be sung directly to him. Today we will learn just that!
Worship songs are not sung slow all the time, and Praise songs are not always fast to dance too. Sometimes there is a combination of both, praise and worship. Now let’s take a look:
What type of songs are these? Praise, Worship, or a combination of both
Today we will evaluate praise and worship songs, and dispel the myth that worship songs are slow, and praise songs are fast.
1) What type of song is this?
Undignified by David Crowder Band
I will praise! I will sing! I will dance before my King! Hallelujah!
This is very easy to guess. So what is it? It fast and shouting worthiness to the song.
2) What type of song is this?
Invincible God by Martha Munizzi
We serve an invincible God? There is nobody like God!
Do you know? It is fast and not slow. You can dance to it. So what is it?
3) What type of song is this?
It Was You by Clint Brown
It was you, Lord holding me, when I cried. Thank you Lord!
Did you guess? It is slow and not fast. You can bow your head to this song. So what is it?
4) What type of song is this?
No Greater Love by Fred Hammond
There is no greater love that the Father has for us. Amen!
Do you know? It is slow and not fast. You can kneel to this song. So what is it?
5) What type of song is this?
Hungry for You by Clint Brown
Are you longing for God’s presence? He is waiting for you. Call on Him in truth!
This is another easy one. What is it? Bow your heard and prostrate before your King.
6) What type of song is this?
God of Wonders by Rebecca St. James
Lord of All Creation, We praise You! You are Holy! Hallelujah!
Did you guess? Do you have your listening skills in tuned? What is type is it?
Here are your answers:
1) Undignified by David Crowder Band
David Crowder is singing to the audience to get them stir up for praise. So you guess it! It is a praise song.
2) Invincible God by Martha Munizzi
Martha Munizzi is singing to God and not the audience. Listen to what she is saying. She began to talk with the audience, but starts off right away tell the Lord there is no one like him; pointing her finger upwards. If you guessed it, it’s a worship song.
3) It Was You by Clint Brown
Clint Brown is singing to the audience about God. He is telling of God’s character of love and compassion; helping Mr. Brown through a storm in his life. Can you relate to this? I know I can. The answer is a praise song.
4) No Greater Love by Fred Hammond
Fred Hammond is singing to the audience, just like Clint Brown’s song ‘It Was You.’ God’s character is talked about all the time, but the words must be sung directly to Him. So you guess it? It is a praise song.
5) Hungry for You by Clint Brown
Here is another Clint Brown’s song that is very easy. You guess it! It is a worship song, because we are talking directly to God.
6) God of Wonders by Rebecca St. James
Rebecca St. James is singing what type of song. Did you listen closely? I hope you guessed it was praise and worship song. She starts off talking about God’s character, and then she directs the audience to Him by saying “You are Holy”!
From these six songs, I hope you see that praise and worship are different. For more practice, come back anytime. I might even update this page from time to time. Practice listening is key to learning about the praise and worship songs. My Brother and Sister getting understanding about what you heard will build your faith.
Until next time, continue to be blessed and Praise the Lord!
