Listening to My Favourite PlanetShakers Songs

planetshakers songs

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.

1. Overwhelmed (Reflector)

I'm overwhelmed by Your love
I'm overwhelmed by Your touch
It's Your love that's lifted me
And forever I will sing
I'm overwhelmed by Your love
I'm overwhelmed by Your touch
It's Your love that's lifted me
And forever I will sing
Of Your amazing praise
Of Your amazing praise
I'll lift Him up, the King of Glory
I'll praise His name and tell the story
Of His goodness, kindness following me
All the days of my life

2. I want to see Jesus

I wanna see Jesus
I wanna see Jesus
I wanna see Jesus lifted high in this place
I wanna see Jesus
I wanna see Jesus
I wanna see Jesus lifted high in this place
Holy Spirit open my eyes
To see His glory magnified
To understand His awesomeness
And the power of His name
Holy Spirit take control
I give my life to You alone
Surrendering every part of me
Let Your Will be done
Glory, glory
Glory to the Risen One
Glory, glory
Glory to the Risen One
Glory, glory
Glory to the Risen One
Glory, glory
Glory to the Risen One

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.

We have come to the end of this post. If you have found it useful, do let me know by liking or sharing it or leaving a comment about what you like.
