A Defense of Contemporary Worship Songs

 

Lindsay answers critics of contemporary song form worship music using Psalm 27 by Donnie McClurkin.

Includes a brief harmonic and rhythmic analysis and explores how the form serves the lyric:

 


Psalm 27

by Donnie McClurkin

 

One thing that I desire from the Lord

That one thing will I seek for

That I may dwell within His house 
And inquire in His temple 
And behold the beauty of the Lord

Beautiful Savior
Beautiful Savior

I’m not worried and I’m not dismayed 
I never will run away 
I won’t fear the enemy 
When they come at me they’re gonna fall 
For Your power will conquer all 
There’s just one place I wanna be

That place is….

One thing that I desire from the Lord 
That one thing will I seek for 
That I may dwell within His house 
And inquire in His temple 
And behold the beauty of the Lord

Fairest Lord Jesus 
Ruler of creation 
Thou art God and Thou art man and so beautiful 

Thee will I cherish, Lord 
Thee will I honor, Lord 
You’re my soul’s glory, joy and crown 
Oh, my God

Beautiful Savior 
Beautiful Savior 
God of all creation 
How I love and adore You 
For You’re beautiful beyond all description

Beautiful Savior, yeah (x3) 
Wonderful Jesus
