Worship Christ the Risen King


In the interest of promoting songs that I believe are among the best for corporate worship, I am planning to post several videos over the coming months.  These are just demonstrations of how one person arranges and plays these songs for corporate worship.

Below is a video demonstration of Worship Christ the Risen King.  It’s an old tune (the same one for Angels From the Realms of Glory), with a relatively new text–written in 1986 by Jack Hayford.  It’s (c) 1986 Maranatha Music.  My chord chart can be downloaded here.

    Thank you so much for the chord help and background info on Worship Christ, the Risen King. I lead with a guitar, djembe, sometimes violin and recorder. One day we’ll have a piano but that’s it for the time being. Your style falls squarely in where we’re are at the moment. I look forward to reading your other posts. Blessings.

        The chord sheet is linked on the post above, as well as on youtube. Here’s the link again: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/25633855/Worship%20Christ%20the%20Risen%20King%20%28G%29.pdf

        You can look up B7, D7, and C#dim online. If I have time, I’ll try to post a demo video, but it’s Holy Week and I have 3 worship services to plan.

        Thanks for reading!
