ONE VOICE: Like Incense
We at LifeQuest Church recently experienced a very special worship service that centered on a theme of “Incense”. As a core part of that service, we introduced a new song to you titled Like Incense by Brooke Ligertwood, David Strasser, and Rich Mullins. This song has been one of my favorite worship songs for awhile now and I’ve been looking forward to teaching it to our church. I love worship songs that have such rich lyrics...especially when those lyrics are drawn straight from God’s Word: May my prayer be counted as incense before You; the lifting up of my hands as the evening offering (Psalm 141:2, NASB).
There’s also a section of the song where we simply sing “Oh...” over a beautiful melody in 3-part harmony. I loved singing this with all of you on Sunday, it felt like we were offering some kind of audio-incense to God as the room was filled with a palpable sense of worship! I look forward to singing this more with you in our coming worship services.
