Singer and YouTuber David Wesley shared a video where he performed the ‘Evolution of worship music’ spanning 1500 years in just 8 minutes.
Wesley describes the video as an “A cappella medley filled with almost 1500 years of Christian music crammed into 7.5 minutes. Better strap yourselves in and enjoy the ride!” This is true because worship music all through the ages is a way of bringing people together into the presence of the Almighty God. Even though our music may have changed but our heart and purpose of worshiping God has always remained the same.
Wesley is taking us on an a cappella journey singing timeless church tunes like ‘Be Thou My Vision’ and ‘Amazing Grace’ to today’s hits like ‘God of Wonder’ and ‘Oceans’ as he lends his amazing voice to all time favorites like ‘Amazing Grace.’
“Amazing Grace, How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now am found
T’was blind but now I see
T’was Grace that taught my heart to fear
And Grace, my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed”
He also sings modern worship songs like ‘Good Good Father.’
“You’re a good good father
It’s who you are, it’s who you are, it’s who you are
And I’m loved by you
It’s who I am, it’s who I am, it’s who I am”
This is a wonderful tribute by Wesley to 1500 years of worship music with this incredible video, as long as we are alive we are to praise our God.
