Over Matt Redman
Redman benefited from the wave of church worship leaders being hurled onto the top of the CCM charts. But his success is not just a matter of good timing. He earned his status by writing what became the number one worship songs. A prime example is "The Heart of Worship" whose lyrics capture the conundrum of the platinum-worshiper phenomenon, not losing sight, under the bright lights of fame, of what worship is: "I bring you more than a song, 'cause a song in itself is not what you have required I'm coming back to the heart of worship." Other runaway Redman praise songs include "Better Is One Day," "Let Everything that Has Breath," "I Am Yours," "Let My Words Be Few" and "Once Again."
