Just wondering, what does the new passsa coming have to do with the hymn selection?
If it had not been for the Lord on my side, where would I be!!!

well good question
I hope I can answer it fully

I believe hymns should be selected according to season and need of the congregation
hymns are a vehicle to minister to folks

I think that this occasion is one where the congregation has gone through a tough season

their pastor died two years ago
another minister died in the church of a massive heart attack while playing on the organ these two events happened in the same year.

so now that they have selected their pastor after a 11 months of searching

it is a joyous occasion and one that I know that many of the members are excited about



It is an opportunity to sing about God's faith
or holding on
or victory is coming
or whatever

Like I said I am a little stuck.

but yeah that is it. 

I hope I answered your question.

Right, as well as choir selections. 
But if you are focusing on the hymn, here is my $0.02

We've come this far by faith
The Lord is my light
Praise Him (Jesus Blessed Savior, He's worthy to be praised)
Great is thy faithfulness
It is well
Count your blessings
Revive us again
Bless the Lord oh my soul
Thank you Lord (I just want to thank you Lord)
If it had not been for the Lord on my side, where would I be!!!

I had to laugh at some of your suggestions
because they are right on time

i actually was already on the same page as some of these

and I may even want to re do my list


I was thinking of
Victory in Jesus
Precious memories  in honor of the old pastor
Look and live
count your blessings
spirit of the living God fall fresh on me  usually I would play thank you lord right here during prayer but i do that song so much i dont think it will have the same impact
but i could move it and put it someplace else like for devotion

i like revive us again
i didnt even thing of that i like that suggestion a lot
praise him was a great suggestion too.


i may do both of these for devotion

Bless the Lord oh my soul will require some teaching and we have a full plate this week with the other songs I am doing for choir selections

but this is an excellent list
I will have to put you on my buddy list and pick your brain in the future,

thanks a bunch
