A Defense of Contemporary Worship Songs

Lindsay answers critics of contemporary song form worship music using Psalm 27 by Donnie McClurkin.

Includes a brief harmonic and rhythmic analysis and explores how the form serves the lyric:

Psalm 27

by Donnie McClurkin

One thing that I desire from the Lord

That one thing will I seek for

That I may dwell within His house
And inquire in His temple
And behold the beauty of the Lord

Beautiful Savior
Beautiful Savior

I’m not worried and I’m not dismayed
I never will run away
I won’t fear the enemy
When they come at me they’re gonna fall
For Your power will conquer all
There’s just one place I wanna be

That place is….

One thing that I desire from the Lord
That one thing will I seek for
That I may dwell within His house
And inquire in His temple
And behold the beauty of the Lord

Fairest Lord Jesus
Ruler of creation
Thou art God and Thou art man and so beautiful

Thee will I cherish, Lord
Thee will I honor, Lord
You’re my soul’s glory, joy and crown
Oh, my God

Beautiful Savior
Beautiful Savior
God of all creation
How I love and adore You
For You’re beautiful beyond all description

Beautiful Savior, yeah (x3)
Wonderful Jesus
