I first heard the PlanetShakers songs in 2002 when a church friend recommended them. Now there are a couple of songs that still minister to me.
When I first heard the Planetshakers, I thought they were too loud. However, Henry Seeley, the worship leader’s diction was very clear and I could hear the lyrics and they won me over. Grace-filled and Jesus-centred. Sometimes a little loud music is good for the soul.
Only the first 2 songs were loud and fast. The rest are slower and really good for personal worship. The lyrics and videos are included in the collection.
Fast Planetshakers Songs

Slower Planetshakers Songs
I still prefer the slower more contemplative songs.
3. It’s all about Jesus
This song is all about what Jesus has done for me.
It's all about Jesus It's all about the way he changed our lives It's all about Jesus The power of his blood can't be denied It's all about Jesus It's all about the covenant he made It's all about Jesus Victorious he rose up from the grave We lift our hearts to him He is the reason that we sing Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, We praise your name It's all about Jesus It's all about the way he set us free It's all about Jesus Bearing all our sins at Calvary It's all about Jesus It's all about the gift of love he gave It's all about Jesus The precious lamb of God for us was slain We lift our hearts to him He is the reason that we sing Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah We praise your name Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah We praise your name We lift our hearts to him He is the reason that we sing Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah We praise your name [4 times]
4. Beautiful Saviour
Every time this song starts, my spirit leaps. The music and lyrics transports me to the Tabernacle of David where the mercy seats is, under the mighty wings. Where worship is unimpeded.
Jesus Beautiful Saviour God of all majesty Risen King Lamb of God Holy and righteous Blessed Redeemer Bright morning star All the heavens shout Your praise All creation bows to worship You How wonderful How beautiful Name above every name Exalted high How wonderful How beautiful Jesus Your name Name above every name Jesus I will sing forever Jesus I love You Jesus I love You
5. Unto You
Written by Henry Seeley
I live for You All of my days belong to You You draw me to Your tenderness You make me new Into the secret place I will run Where my heart can be free In the grace that I've found Unto You Be all glory and praise How my heart seeks Your face As I'm waiting on You Only You Are my strength and my tower Fill my life with Your power As I stand here in awe of You I stand here in awe of You
I didn’t quite get the newer Planetshakers songs. The sound is different. The lyrics and messages did not resonate with me. I looked for my favourite worship leader Henry Seeley. He was no longer with Planetshakers.
So, I realised that it wasn’t Planetshakers that I connected with, it was Henry Seeley’s worship.
