“HEART OF WORSHIP”

There’s a recent song that was written by a young man who lead the worship at church. He was an extremely talented singer, but the preacher there took him aside and told him that he could not lead the singing at church until things changed because he saw that he was more interested in the attention he received than in worshipping the Lord. This young man was angry at first and yet the words of the preacher were true, and he knew it. Six months later he wrote a song and taught it to the church there. The words are these:

Heart of Worship

(words and music by Matt Redman)

When the music fades

All is stripped away

And I simply come

Longing just to bring

Something that’s of worth

That will bless Your heart


I bring you more than a song

For a song in itself

Is not what you have required

You search much deeper within

Through the way things appear

You’re looking into my heart


I’m coming back to the heart of worship

And it’s all about you

It’s all about you, Jesus

I’m sorry Lord for the thing I’ve made it

When it’s all about you

It’s all about you, Jesus


King of endless worth

No one could express

How much you deserve

Though I’m weak and poor

All I have is yours

Every single breath
