Coming out this week is Elevation Worship's brand new collection of hymns entitled "Hymns of Worship - How Great Thou Art." The set contains 18 hymns of the church including "Nearer My God to Thee," "Christ the Lord is Risen Today" and "Love Divine."
Senior Pastor of Elevation Church and auhor Steven Furtick speaks of the importance of hymns when he says: "The great hymns of the church are filled with some of the richest words and confessions of praise. But often we overlook the power of these songs because of our perception of them. Occasionally during our weekend worship experiences, like this video from the Code Orange Revival, our worship team will take a new approach to a timeless hymn to break free from the familiar and help our church gain a fresh perspective on these incredible songs of worship."
