Song discovery - We Say Yes
'We Say Yes' began from a conversation with John Glass, Elim's previous General Superintendent. John spoke about saying yes to God. Saying yes to God in whatever he has for us and whatever comes our way.
The song is a declaration of faith - saying we will choose to serve God, to be his witness, to be His hands and feet.
Declaring that God is for us and that in every season of life we can trust in God.
He is with us in every situation and He is always good.
God is for us.
‘We Say Yes’ is a great song to start a service with or as your second or third song in. It’s also perfect as an upbeat response song. We’ve found that it’s been used really well at the end of many services.
The song is really versatile too - We will often repeat the verses, sometimes we’ll go back to a repeat bridge and the 2 choruses can be slowed down to be more reflective
Also, this is super easy to do with just an acoustic or piano.
On the album the song is in C. However, we use it in Bb-C for a male vocal and F# - A for a female
