The Doxology

Why The Doxology Is One Of The 21st Century's Most Powerful Anthems

It is a crisp, Autumn morning in the year 1674. An 18-year old student at Winchester College, with the rolling countryside of county Hampshire and the great Winchester Cathedral whispering to him from his window, is preparing for his day. An open pamphlet on his desk, and the words of a Morning Hymn on his lips, the devout, singing student commits his day to his Lord. Unknown to him, the last of the 14 stanzas of that hymn will go on to become, very possibly, the most-sung hymn in all of history.[1]

Matt Bramstedt | Dan Wilt – “The Song Inside Of Me” (Lyric Video + Song Story)

And my heart beats like a drum, You are the song inside of me.

The song that moves you from the middle of the hard night to the beginning of a bright day is rarely one that is perfect, polished, or presented with a bow. It’s usually the one that’s honest, full of passion, and helps you say something that is true and right. That’s the power of of spiritual resolve – choosing to declare Kingdom truth until our feelings learn to follow. The Song Inside Of Me is a new song of celebration and resolve for the Body of Christ.

The Song Inside Of Me

I’ve got to sing, I’ve got to sing out
I’ve got to shout, I’ve got to shout out
The One and Only, the King of Glory
You are the Song inside of me

You are the joy that I’m declaring
Releasing hope for all to carry
God, You’re alive, reclaiming lives
You are the Song inside of me

| Prechorus |

And I will sing, a song to bless Your Name
Shout it out, proclaiming Christ who reigns
To our God, You are the risen King
You are the Song inside of me

| Chorus |

And I will sing, like the sun
Shout it out, You’re the worthy One
And my heart beats like a drum
You are the Song inside of me

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”

“Healing In Your Wings” (Live Performance Video) – Dan Wilt & Friends

Sometimes we write songs for a moment in time, that then carry us and those we love for a lifetime. The song in the video below, “Healing In Your Wings,” is a prayer song based on Malachi 4:2 and Psalm 62:11-12. It was born in a season years ago when it seemed like almost every family in our church community was facing some major battle –  chronic illness (cancer and other sicknesses), mental or emotional struggles (depression and more), family relational pain, or unemployment, underemployment, and financial difficulty. We just needed to sing the promise of God together.

Here is a very simple video of the song, recorded on our back porch around a Christ Candle (symbolizing the eternal presence of the risen Christ) with some friends and fellow worship leaders from here at the Franklin Vineyard in Tennessee.
