10 Upbeat Worship Songs For 2017

10 Upbeat Worship Songs For 2017

This year I have made it a point to lead more upbeat, celebratory songs with my church.  There is a place for reverence in church music.  A place for stillness.  There is also a place for loud declarations of praise.

I want to be faithful to the Word of God which calls us to:

“Sing joyful to the Lord, you righteous, 

it is fitting for the upright to praise Him” (Psalm 33:1)

“Sing aloud to the God our strength,

shout for joy to the God of Jacob!” (Psalm 81:1)

“Praise God in His Sanctuary” (Psalm 150:1)

“Praise Him for His acts of power,

Praise Him for His surpassing greatness” (Psalm 150:2)

I am not naturally an exuberant person but I have so much to celebrate.  I have been saved and redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ.  My life has been transformed.  My eternity is secure.  I have the very Spirit of the living God within me.  In a lifetime I couldn’t sing enough songs of praise.  

I want my life to be marked by joyful exclamations of the power of God.  As a Worship Pastor I want the same for my church.   

Here are ten upbeat songs of celebration and praise to lead in your church.
