Worship time on Sunday mornings is filled with much authentic praise through different worship songs. Many of the songs we sing are original, written by members of the Worship Tribe.
We asked Hannah Martin, a song writer, musician, and member of the Severn Run Worship Tribe, what it is like to write a song. Here is what she had to say:
It always starts with the same question…”What do You want to say?”
I ask God this question every time I sit at my piano, or hold my guitar.
Before I ever play a note, or write a word, I want it to be from HIM.
Sometimes He says nothing.
But sometimes He speaks, and when He speaks the message is louder, clearer, with more impact than I ever could have on my own.
The words start pouring out, truths that He reveals in His word put to music.
The music starts flowing, rhythms and melodies start to form.
Piece by piece it’s weaved together.
My pen can’t write fast enough as He lavishes His thoughts into my mind.
These songs are different. People can’t really explain it, they say things like “that song really touched me” or “that song gave me goosebumps” and the reason is because it was from God.
I was just a glove that He decided to use.
These songs bring me to my knees at the thought that God would choose me. His heart is so kind, His mercy is so great. The thought that he would want me to relay His love to His people is overwhelming.
God picks people to say what He wants His people to hear. And if we listen, if we’re patient and willing enough...we will hear them, and there will be an impact.
If you would like to continue to be impacted by the songs from our Worship Tribe, their album, Fill the Room, is available on iTunes or from the Gear Shop on Sunday mornings.
