Reimagined Worship
Posted September 23, 2021
By BPence,


Michael W. Smith’s best-selling album is Worship, which was released twenty years ago on 9/11, the day our nation was attacked. As a way to honor the tragic September 11 anniversary, Smith has released a reimagined version of the album. Worship Forever was recorded in front of a live audience in Nashville in July with a full symphony orchestra, choir and guest appearances by Amy Grant, Matt Redman and Tauren Wells. 
Smith adds a few newer songs to the track list – “Surrounded/Waymaker", and ends with the new studio recording, the piano and orchestra driven "Sing Again” as a bonus track. Below is the chorus for “Sing Again”:  
This lonely heart will sing again
These barren lungs will breathe again
Through suffering we're stronger
In the palm of His hand
Like a beacon in the night
Hope illuminates the sky
Reaching for each other
And as we carry on
We are keepers of the light

The project is very well done, though Smith performs the songs a bit slower with the orchestra than he did on the original album.
Here is the track list for Worship Forever:
Forever
Heart of Worship (featuring Matt Redman) 
Draw Me Close
Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus 
Open the Eyes of My Heart
Above All 
Breathe
Let It Rain 
Agnus Dei (featuring Amy Grant) 
Awesome God 
More Love, More Power (featuring Tauren Wells) 
Surrounded/Waymaker (not on original album)
Forever (reprise) 
Sing Again (new song)
