I was recently blessed to have the opportunity to review Vinyard Music's "I Love Your Presence" CD as a digital download from iTunes. It was released to iTunes January 10, 2012 and will be physically released February 7, 2012
I LOVE YOUR PRESENCE was recorded live at the Burn Bright: Worship and The Kingdom Of God conference, hosted by Vineyard Worship. Several hundred worship leaders and worshippers gathered in the Arizona desert to explore the nature of God's kingdom through music and teaching with some of the Vineyard's most gifted communicators and musicians. This inspiring collection of songs recorded live at the The Vineyard Church North Phoenix will immerse listeners in the powerful worship that was the highlight of the event. I LOVE YOUR PRESENCE reminds us to not just think of worship as singing songs, but also laying down our lives for Him.
Featuring worship leaders Matt Turrgiano, Chris Lizotte, Steve Jones, Anabeth Morgan, Kirsten Ford, Nigel Briggs and Casey Corum
Here is the list of songs:
1.Let It Come
2.Glory To The King
4.What Can I Bring
5.Love Of God
6.One Thing Remains
7.Now And Ever
10.Isn't He / Amazing Grace
11.I Love Your Presence
13.I Lift My Eyes Up (Psalm 121)
This worship CD speaks to my heart. I can listen to this over and over. The first song, "Let It Come" nearly had me up and out of my seat dancing. If I was not at work, I would have. It has a great upbeat tempo and the vocals are full of spirit. If you like a more "rockin" worship song, this one is for you. It goes straight to the heart and is so very uplifting.
The second song on the CD, "Glory to the King" is amazing. I can picture myself in my church's sanctuary or at a large gathering of believers with everyone singing and lifting their hands into the air for Him. It's an ultimate worship song that literlly gives glory to our almighty God.
"Sweet Mercies" is another that reminds me of all of God's mercies and what He can do for me and all of mankind. Her sweet voice resonates her faith and her dedication to Jesus. Listen for yourself and you will see. Here is a great verse from the song:
"Your mercies fall from heaven
Sweet mercies flow from heaven
New mercies for today
Shower them down Lord as we pray"
In summary, this is a worship CD destined to become a classic. I think it contains songs that will be popular with adult Christians of all ages. There is something there for everyone from someone newly saved or someone who is a lot further in their walk with the Lord.
A little bit about Vinyard from their website:
Vineyard Worship exists as an organic extension of the Vineyard church movement in the USA (Vineyard USA). We are, in a phrase, "from the church, for the church". We are not a music company first and foremost; we are a non-profit worship ministry. Our efforts will be centered in the cultivation and empowerment of the core value of worship in the Vineyard or more simply put "to help the local church experience God", rather than in a profit-driven music business model.
