Sunday Singables: "Holy"

"Holy" by Matt Redman, released on 10,000 Reasons (2011)

Why I recommend this song for worship-

This has become one of my favorite songs from the past year. It takes the very biblical theme of declaring God's holiness and expands on why we sing of this attribute. Have you ever spoken of God's holiness and wondered what that means? It means He is other, not like us, above us, a completely different kind of being. And yet, He sent Christ to become one of us and to save us. These amazing truths and more are taught with a melody that is very singable and a final focus on Christ's triumphal return. This song speaks to those hurting spiritually, those longing for hope, those needing truth, and those that just want to praise the Lord. We have come to love singing this song in our church and I hope it is an encouragement to you as well.

Changes I've Made-

The key we sing this song in is C. On the recording I believe it is in Eb which is a bit high for the average voice. We also don't sing quite as many repeats. However, this song lends itself to just singing straight through or repeating things a few times. If you do end up repeating a verse or singing through the bridge multiple times I would recommend changing the volume and instrumentation around a bit, just to give it some variety. Other than that we enjoy the song in much the same way as it was originally recorded.
