Wanna see part of my church worship?

My hubby is the worship pastor at our church. He introduced a new song this week - Cannons by Phil Wickham. It's a wonderful song and one that the congregation will begin singing probably this week. We also have a group at our church called "DOZ" or "Daughter's of Zion". They are young girls under 19 years old who dance, use tambourines and streamers/flags/etc. in worship. They don't worship every week with the worship team but numerous times throughout the year. They worshipped Thanksgiving Eve and then 3 of the girls danced this past Sunday to the new song. This was done during the offering time which is a "special music" time - not a normal time for the congregation to sing along in worship but DH had them join in towards the end on the chorus. So, that's the introduction. Here's the video. Oh - one of the girls - the tall blonde - has a broken hand and a bright purple cast on it. She put an ace bandage on it so you can't see it but a few times I noticed she had a hard time with the streamer fan. :) The lyrics are below.

Cannons by Phil Wickham

It’s falling from the clouds
A strange and lovely sound
I hear it in the thunder and rain
It’s ringing in the skies
Like cannons in the night
The music of the universe plays

Singing, You are holy, great and mighty
The moon and the stars declare who You are
I’m so unworthy, but still You love me
Forever my heart will sing of how great You are

Beautiful and free
The song of galaxies
Reaching far beyond the Milky Way
Let’s join in with the sound
Come on let’s sing it out
As the music of the universe plays

All glory, honor, power is Yours, Amen
All glory, honor, power is Yours, Amen
All glory, honor, power is Yours, forever Amen

Thanks Ginger. I know it's not your style of music and such at all - but I have to say that I know these girls and their hearts for the Lord. It's so neat to see them be able to use their talents to serve the Lord in worship. :)
