O Sing My Soul – Sunday Songs

O Sing My Soul is from the first EP of Matt Boswell’s Messenger Hymns.
Apparently he has a new release with Matt Papa later this year. I’m looking forward to hearing it.

The lyrics:
1
O sing my soul the ancient song and lend Your highest praise
To Him who is the King of old and dwells in endless days
How resplendent His glory, How majestic His name
Now to the Uncreated One, O Let the anthem raise
2
O worship Him our Father God, The Spirit and The Word
Who fashioned all things from His joy, and saw that it was good
What perfection of friendship, what communion we shared
But choosing death we fell from life, aside the guilty pair
3
Now hear my soul the gospel song, attend the joyful news
For Christ has come the perfect Son, His Father’s will to choose
In our place He did suffer, In our place became sin
The death of death, the death of Christ who stands alive again
4
Now people of the risen Lord, o hear the call to go
Into the world we have been sent as messengers of hope
Christ alone be our treasure, Christ alone our reward
Come bid the nations sing, sing with us, the praises of the Lord

Lord, From Sorrows Deep I Call – Sunday Songs

Based on Psalm 42, by Matt Papa and Matt Boswell, Lord, From Sorrows Deep I Call is another demonstration of how these two songwriters produce material that gives expression to themes that modern songwriters don’t automatically gravitate to, while composing songs that are engaging and singable.

I think there’s an album of their material (don’t know whether it would be new collaborations or some of the songs that they’ve written individually and together in the past) coming out later this year.
It will be worth a listen.

O God Of Our Salvation – Sunday Songs

O God Of Our Salvation by MaTt Boswell and Michael Bleeker, a song for Trinity Sunday.
It seems the lyrics may have been helped by Isaac Watts.
From Boswell:

From Bleeker (a training video)

The lyrics:
1
O God of our salvation
Who reigns upon the throne
The sov’reign Father great is He
From Whom all blessings flow
Chorus
O God of our salvation
From Whom redemption comes
O Father Son and Spirit
The blessed Three in One
2
Behold the Son our Savior
Who for our sin was slain
The Christ Who purchased with His blood
The wretched souls of men
Chorus
3
O God the Holy Spirit
Revealing deity
The fount of life and love divine
Throughout eternity
Chorus
Bridge
Yeah ascribe O church the greatness
And the glory due His name
One God one King one Essence
Our triune God proclaimed
Interlude
Amen
Amen
Amen
Amen (yeah)
Ending
(Amen) God of our salvation
(Amen) Who reigns upon the throne
(Amen) The sov’reign Father great is He
(Amen) From Whom all blessings flow

His Mercy Is More – Sunday Songs

I’ve featured His Mercy Is More previously, but I want to include it in Sunday Songs as well.
Matt Papa and Matt Boswell have done a good job setting lyrics that have gravity with a medium paced melodic tune.

This is lyric video.
