Leader / congregation improvise additional verses...

This song is designed to be improvised! There are a few basic verses to get you going - you can then choose to stop, or carry on with improvised verses. The leader or members of the group/congregation call out 4 or 5 syllable phrases which everyone then joins in singing, finishing with 'Christ the Lord' each time. I've found it works well in big and small groups, and particularly in response to Bible study or preaching, when our eyes have been opened to Jesus' character and work. I've been very encouraged seeing some of the quieter members of a group bravely call out and play a part in leading the praises of the others. We've gone for a live recording of this one to try to give you a really clear idea of how it might work in practice.

We've used this song several times and I love the participation. Today, we used it a bit differently. We have an increasing number of people in our congregation who have different mother tongues. I got some of them to read a special passage from the Bible in their language, then we had a screen with the first verse of this song in their languages. So we had Spanish, German, Dutch and Farsi and people could sing in English or any of those languages. It was really powerful for people to sing in their own heart language and for us English speakers to hear other languages and also sing in them.
We also sang "Blessing and honour" and "Let everything that has breath" which both have lines about the nations praising God. In these times of countries closing borders and people isolating thenselves,it was good to remember we're are part of a global community.

Tried this last night at church. It's the first time I have lead any "unfinished" worship. The first phrase that was called out was "He's the beginning and the end", which was a bit of a challenge to fit - heehee, but it got easier, thankfully. I loved how participatory it was.
