Vintage Worship Songs
Posted July 12, 2020
By BPence,


I was introduced to the duo Shane and Shane at the Getty’s Sing! worship conference in Nashville a few years ago, and have enjoyed their music ever since. This album of vintage worship songs, that you probably sang in your church in the 1990’s, was recorded live from home during the COVID-1 quarantine. It was produced and performed entirely by duo Shane Barnard and Shane Everett.
The duo gives these songs the treatment you would expect from them – acoustic (guitar, light percussion, keys), excellent harmonies, rather slow and extended versions.  
I was introduced to a few of these songs on Michael W. Smith’s best-selling 2001 album Worship. There are also two Rich Mullins’ classics included. 
Below are a few comments about each song on the album:
Awesome God – This song was written by Rich Mullins. The song features acoustic guitar, excellent vocal harmonies, and bass.
Key lyric:
Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from Heaven above
With wisdom, power, and love.   
I Could Sing of Your Love Forever – This song was written by Martin Smith. The song features acoustic guitar, drums, bass and vocal harmonies.  
Key lyric:
I'm happy to be in the truth
And I will daily lift my hands
For I will always sing of when
Your love came down

Draw Me Close – This song was written by Kelly Carpenter. The song features acoustic guitar, bass, keys, and vocal harmonies.
Key lyric:
You're all I want
You're all I've ever needed
You're all I want
Help me know You are near

Knowing You – This song was written by Graham Kendrick. The song, which builds slowly, features acoustic guitar, keys, bass, and vocal harmonies.     
Key lyric:
Knowing You, Jesus, knowing You
There is no greater thing
You're my all, You're the best
You're my joy, my righteousness
And I love You, Lord

Ancient of Days – This song was written by Gary Sadler and Jamie Harvill.  The song is upbeat, and features some excellent acoustic guitar, bass, light percussion, and vocal harmonies.  
Key lyric:
Blessing and honor, glory and power
Be unto the Ancient of Days
From every nation, all of creation
Bow before the Ancient of Days

As the Deer – This song was written by Martin J. Nystrom. The song features keys, acoustic guitar, and vocal harmonies.
Key lyric:
You alone are my strength, my shield
To You alone may my spirit yield
You alone are my heart’s desire
And I long to worship You

Sometimes by Step – This song was written by Rich Mullins and David Strasser. The song features acoustic guitar, bass, drums, and vocal harmonies.
Key lyric:
Oh God, You are my God
And I will ever praise You
Oh God, You are my God
And I will ever praise You
And I will seek You in the morning
And I will learn to walk in Your ways
And step by step You'll lead me
And I will follow You all of my days

In the Secret- This song was written by Andy Park. The song features acoustic guitar, bass, drums, and vocal harmonies.   
Key lyric:
I want to know You
I want to hear Your voice
I want to know You more
I want to touch You
I want to see Your face
I want to know You more

Lord I Lift Your Name on High – This song was written by Rick Founds. The song features acoustic guitar, drums, bass and vocal harmonies.
Key lyric:
You came from Heaven to earth
To show the way
From the earth to the cross
My debt to pay
From the cross to the grave
From the grave to the sky
Lord, I lift Your name on high

Breathe – This song was written by Marie Barnett. The song features acoustic guitar and some excellent vocal harmonies.  
Key lyric:
And I, I'm desperate for You
And I, I'm lost without You
Oh, I'm lost without You
