Michael W. Smith Releases Decades of Worship Jan. 17

Project Brings Together Smith’s Most Popular Worship Songs

(Nashville, Tenn.) Jan. 9, 2012—Having released the acclaimed instrumental project, GLORY (Nov. 21, 2011), celebrated artist, songwriter, composer, instrumentalist, performer, author and producer, Michael W. Smith delivers his latest musical offering, Decades of Worship, on Jan. 17. Smith, a mainstay with a 29-year career, brings together the best of his beloved worship hymns on this, his 24th project.

Since his entrance onto the music scene in the early 80s, Smith has been a worship leader, writer and has recorded some of the church’s most popular worship anthems including “Great Is The Lord,” “Agnus Dei,” “A New Hallelujah” and “Healing Rain” to name a few. These songs were released on three worship albums since 2001, including Worship, Worship Again, A New Hallelujah, and Healing Rain, which have collectively sold more than 3.7 million copies.

Available for the first time, Smith’s top worship songs are all on one CD. Decades Of Worship features 12 total tracks comprising such classics as “Agnus Dei” and “A New Hallelujah” mentioned above as well as “Above All,” “Mighty To Save,” and “Breathe,” among others.

A complete track listing is as follows:

  • Decades of Worship
  • Agnus Dei
  • Above All
  • Breathe
  • Awesome God
  • You Are Holy (Prince of Peace)
  • Here I Am To Worship
  • I See You
  • Mighty To Save
  • A New Hallelujah
  • Healing Rain
  • So Great (with Christy Nockels & Israel Houghton)
  • Take Me Over
  • BONUS CUT: Great Is The Lord (newly remastered)
  • “As long as I can remember, I have felt called to lead worship. Each song on this collection is a reflection of my heart to see people draw closer to God. I pray that these songs move people to encounter God in a new and deeper way,” shares Smith.

    The new year ushers in a flurry of activity for Michael. In addition to a Spring Tour in the U.S., concert dates have already been booked in Brazil, Australia, Europe and Canada. July 7 – 14 will see Smith hosting his semi-annual Michael W. Smith and Friends Cruise; this trip touring Eastern Canada and New England.

    Right now it looks like WordPress is the top blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

    Used to love Big White Undies. Still have my cassette tape of them somewhere! I was there from 91-95. Of course I remember Sister Hazel. There’s one band that hasn’t been mentioned yet that I’d seen at The Florida Theatre and have their DVD still that I listen to once in a blue moon…The Dingo Fish.

    Thanks. Great tutorial. It provided the starting point that I needed to roll up my sleeves and tackle contact forms. I’ve browsed about this subject quite a bit (the fear of a complete PHP ignoramus) and there are indeed lots of examples on the web, some of which contain solid advice; and I have to congratulate you. You offer all the basic functionality with a very clean and clear structure (a few example forms out there “die” on errors without providing the user with meaningful feedback, for instance), and you have the good-tutorial-writer-knack of making things accessible. It’s reasonably easy to add tailored complexity using your code as a template because you made it easy to understand what goes on where. I (selfishly) encourage you to write more of these things.Cheers.
