Catholic Worship Leader Song of the Week "The Jesus Song"

Blessings everyone!  This is our weekly Catholic Worship Leader song of the week for the week of January 12th, 2015.  

"The Jesus Song" is a great song that was recently introduced to my community by fellow songwriter, worship leader, and mission presenter, Tom Booth.  It is a very simple, yet powerful worship song that is very easy to learn and sing, and can easily be used inside the liturgy, or at other worship services such as an XLT worship night.  

Tom recently released his latest CD, "Time Stands Still" (spiritandsong.com) which includes "The Jesus Song" and our community of St. Stevens in Sun Lakes was the first to get our hands on the CD, but not the first to learn and pray this great new song.  

Tom taught "The Jesus Song" to our community at his recent parish mission this past Advent, and I have used it many times in the community since then.  Our congregation prays and sings it with joy and it is quickly becoming a favorite here at St. Stevens.  

Here is a great podcast from Spiritandsong.com where Tom talks about how he wrote "The Jesus Song."

You can also find information on purchasing the sheet music here.

Blessings in Christ!
