    My Favorite Lyrics From “God’s Great Dance Floor”

    Former Delirious? lead singer Martin Smith recently released his own album, God’s Great Dance Floor. The five-single EP includes “Back to the Start,” “Soldiers,” “Waiting Here for You” and “You Carry Me (Psalm for the Broken).”

    Check out “Waiting Here for You.” The lyrics to the amazing worship song are beautiful!

    Waiting here for You, with our hands lifted high in praise! 
And it’s You we adore, singing Alleluia.

    Smith, who was nominated for a Dove award as well as a Grammy, is a worship leader. He wrote famous songs you may know, such as “Did you Feel the Mountains Tremble?” “I Could Sing of Your Love Forever” and more.

    Smith is actively involved in supporting other artists, songwriters and worship leaders. He founded the CompassionArt Charity Project and is passionate about serving the Lord.

    Over the last few years I have had the privilege of travelling to some of the poorest parts of the world and seeing first hand the plight of humanity.

    As a song writer and a person with a microphone I made a promise to try and do something about it. What better than to call on my friends and do something together. To be people that can make a change rather than just singing about it.

    So the dream was born to gather some of the best-known writers in the gospel/Christian music scene and spend the week writing songs that could impact these issues on a long-term basis.

    So after many phone calls, the team was assembled, Michael W. Smith, Darlene Zschech, Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, Tim Hughes, Paul Baloche, Israel Houghton, Graham Kendrick, Steven Curtis-Chapman, Andy Park, Stu Garrard, Martin Smith.

    So, with so many songwriters gathering it felt like we needed a new structure to compliment and carry this dream. The usual way of doing things is for a publisher to own the songs and then distribute them to the writers. Although there’s nothing wrong with this it felt like we needed a more radical approach to maximizing all the income from these songs as the intention of the writers is to give every cent away. Also a lot of the publishers and managers were excited about being involved too and making a contribution.

    So CompassionArt was born, a charity dedicated to seeing works of art generate income for the poorest of the poor.

    1. I like worship music like this (: Don’t get me wrong, I love other christian bands like red, skillet, fm static, but sometimes it feels way too alternative and similiar in comparison to secular music. Not sure if anyone will understand this, but I just think secular arists can’t make music like this (:
