There is a Nirvana song called 'In Bloom' that has the lyrics..."He's the one, who likes all our pretty songs and he likes to sing along...but he knows not what it means". As a worship leader, I can identify with this sentiment. Being up the front with a guitar singing words that the songwriter has carefully considered (and in a worship context may be scripture based) and the people in front of you are singing along. If it is a new song, the probability is that many haven't even considered what they are singing, and by the time the vocal has passed it's too late to wonder what it meant before the next line comes. So stop a while. Really consider in your own time what you are singing. Pray through the lyrics; read the scripture that it was based on, and contemplate what its relevance is to you. Then go back and sing it like you mean it. Like the other months in this range, these two CDs have tracks or songs from some of the top UK worship leaders like Tim Hughes, Paul Oakley, Ben Cantelon, etc, and more obscure ones while the devotional book makes some thought provoking points.
