Men’s Conference Setlist

September 14, 2011

Here are the setlists from last weekend’s “All-In” Men’s Conference at Compass Bible Church.

Friday Night

Awesome is the Lord Most High (Passion– G)
Our God (Passion – G)
Lead On Oh King Eternal – (Enfield – D)
From the Inside Out – (Hillsong United – A)
Hallelujah to My King (Baloche – E)

Saturday Morning 1

Holy is the Lord – (Passion – G)
Chosen Generation (Passion – G)
O Church Arise (Getty – D)
Take My Life (Passion – C)
Lead On O King Eternal

Saturday Morning 2

All the Earth – (Brewster – E)
O Worship the King (Passion – E)
Give us Clean Hands – E
Maranatha – (E) (This is an original song. Hopefully we will have a recording soon.)

“Lead On Oh King Eternal” was a new song for our group and in a way our “theme song” for the weekend. The Bible clearly calls men to be leaders, but we cannot effectively carry out this God-given task unless we are following his lead. The song beautifully employs military language to remind the singer that the Christian life is a battle and requires courage and trust in the Lord. I am excited to do this song again and prayerful that the lyrics of this old hymn (excellently redone by Enfield!) describe the people in our church.

(For the weekend service, we played the following songs from the conference: “Awesome is the Lord Most High”, “Holy is the Lord”, “O Church Arise”, “Lead On Oh King Eternal”, and “O Worship the King”.)


Compass Bible Church is a happening place. We keep a pretty full ministry schedule all throughout the year. The closest thing we get to a lull around here is mid-to-late August. And yes, if you just looked at your calendar you realized those days are over.

Last week I was busy preparing for the fall kick-off of ministries at CBC. It felt like the days were flying by. Even on days when I had time it still seemed like there were too many things I needed/wanted to do. In short, the constraints of time felt like a pretty hefty ball-and-chain last week.

All this busyness made me thankful that I serve a God that is not finite like me. I am limited by a lifespan, but God is eternal. The more and more I thought about this, the more I realized that these were crucial truths for us to be singing as a church. Therefore, this was our weekend set (the letter in parentheses at the end of each song is the key in which we sang the song):

Everlasting God” by Brenton Brown/Ken Riley (A)
Blessed Be Your Name” by Matt and Beth Redman (A)
10,000 Reasons” by Matt Redman/Jonas Myrin (E)
Rock of Ages” by Augustus M. Toplady/Thomas Hastings (somewhat like the Chris Rice arrangement) (G)
Your Love Oh Lord” by Brad Avery/David Carr/Mac Powell/Mark Lee/Tai Anderson (G)

Our closing song was more tied to the sermon than the rest of the set. We did a simple version of “Blessed Assurance” by Fanny Crosby.

I started the service with Psalm 90:1-2, and I’ll end this blog with them as well:

Lord, you have been our dwelling place
in all generations.
Before the mountains were brought forth,
or ever you had formed the earth and the world,
from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
