Today’s artist is the Buddy Holly of Christian music. Rather than die in a plane crash like Holly, Rich Mullins was killed following a car accident at the peak of his popularity. If you were ever fortunately to see Rich Mullins live, he’s one of the greatest worship leaders ever. While some Christian artists are more talented musicians, Rich had a special way of worshipping the Lord.
The Lord your God is in the midst of you, a Mighty One, a Savior [Who saves]! He will rejoice over you with joy; He will rest [in silent satisfaction] and in His love He will be silent and make no mention [of past sins, or even recall them]; He will exult over you with singing, Zephaniah 3:17.
Several of Rich Mullins songs incorporate the hammered dulcimer. This distinct song serves as an introduction for today’s song Creed. While the lyrics are something out of a traditional Catholic service, the hammered dulcimer brings energy to this song as you wait for the singing to begin. Like a congregation repeating the Apostles Creed together, hearing Creed reminds Christians of what they believe.
