Open With The Same Song – Every Week

Why repetition can be a gift to a worship leader and a congregation

Every week, every worship leader has the hard task of choosing one song that will open the set and provide a spiritual and musical on-ramp to the rest of the worship experience. What if you tried something unexpected – like repeating the same opening song each week for a season?

You’re planning your next set asking the same kinds of hard questions you always do, in a similar order. One in particular leads the way…

Sam Yoder | Dan Wilt – “Alpha And Omega” (Official Lyric Video + Song Story)

A new song celebrating everlasting Love, and the Lord of new creation.

Combining theological reflection on the God-Beyond-Words with poetic sensitivity and a celebration theme – is a labor of love. This collaboration between friends seeks to do all three in a way that inspires the Church to worship. Here is the story behind the song.

Alpha And Omega
Sam Yoder | Dan Wilt

No eye has seen, no ear has heard,
No mind conceived, nor understood
All that You’ve prepared for Your children

You turn our nights to brightest day,
Our deepest cries to highest praise
The best is yet to come for Your children

| Prechorus |

And by what measure could Your worth be weighed?
Or the riches of Your glory be appraised?

| Chorus |

Alpha and Omega,
You are great forever
You deserve, You deserve all our praise

Your love knows no beginning,
Your love is never ending,
You deserve, You deserve all our praise

| Bridge |

You were, You are, You’ll always be
From age to age, the great “I Am”
