Here are a few ideas for creating a short praise set on a communion Sunday using HymnCharts arrangements and the popular praise song Mighty to Save. The set looks like this:
Are You Washed In the Blood (uptempo, final chorus repeated ballad-style)
There Is a Fountain (uptempo)
Mighty to Save (ballad)
Start with the uptempo Are You Washed In the Blood and flow into There Is a Fountain. The songs link by theme: verse 4 of Are You Washed says:
Lay aside the garments that are stained with sin,
And be washed in the blood of the Lamb;
There’s a fountain flowing for the soul unclean,
O be washed in the blood of the Lamb!
The final chorus of Are You Washed is repeated in a more free, worship style with just piano, and allows you to set the new, slightly slower tempo of There Is a Fountain:Are You Washed > There Is a Fountain
Next, flow out of There Is a Fountain into Mighty to Save. The songs are linked by theme: the repeated tag of There Is a Fountain says:
I will sing Your pow’r,
I’ll sing Your pow’r to save.
Notice there’s no stopping between any songs – the key to worship flow are seamless seques.
You can use Mighty to Save with Are You Washed, too:Are You Washed > Mighty to Save
