Many people know this song. It’s been around for a while. As a matter of fact, it would be considered “old” by praise and worship standards. Yet, this song is still asanointedd today as the very first time Michael W. Smith introduced it all those years ago.

Some songs are just meant to “hang around”. Most of us still sing “Holy, Holy, Holy”, and there’s a reason. At Shelter Cove, many of the gospel songs of the 50s through the 70s still move us. Just a few weeks ago we sang “Blessed Assurance”. The way we did it had our “uniqueness” in it, but the essence of the song was unchanged. There is power in the words “this is my story. This is my song praise my Savior all the day long”.

Just this past weekend, we sang “Agnus Dei” at the Cove. The Holy Spirit was active and working in His people this weekend through this song. It was incredible. The Holy Spirit was almost tangible–like we could almost touch him. One of the worshipers commented to me, “it was like being in heaven with the saints that have gone on before us praise Jesus.” Wow! The power of ananointedd song to help God’s people reach out and touch Him.
