5 Great Intro Songs For Worship Services

We can sometimes get into a rut in our worship services singing the same old songs over and over again, and it can be difficult to find music for various parts of the service. So we’ve decided to help you out with some suggestions - here’s our pick of 5 intro songs you can learn & teach in your church’s worship services to invite the presence of the Lord in. Let us know how they work out and if you have any other suggestions - we’d love to hear them!

1) Enter In - Joe Pace

Tip:

This song is really easy to sing congregationally. Get them to repeat the chorus after you.

Enter in, enter in

All God's

People

Enter in

Enter in, enter in

All God's

People

Enter in

Let us worship in

This holy place

Enter in, enter in

Let us bow before

This throne of grace

Oh, enter in, enter in

Oh, enter in, enter in (vamp)(x3)


2) Surely - Israel & New Breed

Tip:

It's possible to omit the verse in the middle of the song for a congregational setting and just repeat the chorus.

Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place
Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place
Surely You won't forsake the ones who seek Your face
Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place


Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place
Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place
Surely You won't forsake the ones who seek Your face
Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place


In Your presence there is fullness of joy and laughter
He rejoices over us with singing and we are changed
As we welcome the heart of the Master
And the heavenlies are ringing out with praise in one accord
Praise to the Lord


Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place
Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place
Surely You won't forsake the ones who seek Your face
Surely the presence of the Lord is
Surely the presence of the Lord is
Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place
This place, this place, this place, this place


3) The Glory Of The Lord - Richard Smallwood Singers

When the glory of the Lord fills His holy temple,
He will lift us high.

And on angels' wings we'll rise to the pure and holy, when His spirit fills this place.
When His glory, (3x) fills this place.
When His glory, (3x) fills this place.

Let the glory of the Lord fill His holy temple,
Let Him lift us high.

And on angels' wings we'll rise to the pure and holy, when His spirit fills this place.
Let Thy glory, (3x) fill this place.
Let Thy glory, (3x) fill this place.


4) Let Your Glory Fill This House - Tonya Baker

Let your glory fill this house 
Let your glory fill this house 
Let the manifest presence of the Lord, 
let it fill this house. 

Your glory, your glory, fill this house,
Your glory, your glory, fill this house.

Your presence, your presence, fill this house,
Your presence, your presence, fill this house.


Let your presence fill this house 
Let your presence fill this house 
Let the manifest presence of the Lord, 
let it fill this house. 


5) Welcome Into This Place - Gary Oliver

Welcome into this place,

welcome into this broken vessel.

You desire to abide

in the praises of Your people;

so we lift our hands,

and we lift our hearts,

as we offer up this praise unto Your name.
