The Sounds of Summer

YouthCon005Last weekend, the Steubenville Summer Conferences began with the Catholic Charismatic Conference, and tomorrow over a thousand young people will come to campus for the summer’s first youth conference. People who went to the conference last weekend asked me about the new music I played, and people coming to the youth conferences have been asking what I will play, so I hope this blog will satisfy both those questions.

At the Catholic Charismatic Conference, here are some of the newer songs:

“Whom Shall I Fear? (God of Angel Armies)” by Chris Tomlin

“Great I Am” by Jared Anderson

“Consuming Fire” by Tim Hughes

“Lord, I Need You” by Matt Maher

“Christ Has Risen” by Matt Maher

“Our God” by Chris Tomlin

“Revelation Song” by Jennie Lee Riddle

I also played, “Never Been Disappointed” which is off my new CD project, “The Gospel Accordion to Bob Rice.” You can CLICK HERE to find out more about that.

This weekend, I’ll be playing all of the above, plus a few more key songs:

“One Thing Remains (Your Love Never Fails)” off of Passion’s “White Flag” CD

“Lord of Lords” by Brooke Fraser

We’ll hit the “classics” that we usually play: “How Great is Our God,” “How He Loves,” “From the Inside Out,” “Days of Elijah,” “Marvelous Light,” “Blessed Be Your Name,” “No One Like You,” and other songs like that.

And then there’s my stuff: “The Lord Is,” “Little Guy,” “Always You Are Faithful To Me,” “Open Wide,” from the CD “Everybody’s Got a Song to Sing;” “Heart of Jesus,” “You Came to Me,” and “I Shall Be Healed,” from the CD “I Shall Be Healed;” and a few new songs—”Never Been Disappointed,” “Thesaurus of Praise,” “Prince for a Pauper” from the new CD, “The Gospel Accordion to Bob Rice.”

Any summer requests? Leave a comment! And please say a prayer for the Steubenville Summer Conferences—God does great things through them, and I am honored to lead worship there!

  1. I would LOVE to hear King of Kings! It is one of my favorite songs!

  2. which ones will you be playing for mass. we would like to use the Mass playlist for our school. thanks

  3. I’d love to hear “Word Became Flesh” and “Above All”, the theme songs from a few years ago. Each were special in their own way, and my whole youth group loves listening to them again and again.

    “With Everything” and “Yahweh” are super awesome too (:

  4. Hey Bob! I’m so excited for this conference and just this year I’ve found so much joy in leading worship and I’m excited that you’re going to be leading us! Some of my favourites of the year are ‘After All’ by David Crowder and ‘With Us’ from Hillsong Live.

  5. This last weekend I was at the Steubenville conference and it was the best weekend of my life. My favorite thing would have to be Saturday night adoration, but the music comes in at a very close second. The music makes it even more powerful than it was already. Some new songs that I would request for when I come back next summer are “Voice of Truth” and “Who Am I”. Those are just a few that I enjoy.

  6. I’d love to hear “How He Loves” at MC3!! That’s one of my favorites, and it hasn’t been played too much in the past couple of years. Thanks!!!

  7. Might I recommend, perhaps for next year, songs from David Crowder Band’s last album, “Give Us Rest… etc. etc.” Since the album was inspired by the Catholic Mass, it would be very appropriate to use some of the music either in Mass or adoration. I might suggest “After All (Holy)” and “Come Find Me.”

  8. I’d love to hear “It Is Good” or “Refiner’s Fire”. I’m praying for you, and I ask your prayers for me during my LEAD week for MC4. God Bless.

  9. I would love to hear Light the Fire, Above All, The Word Became Flesh, Rooted, and The Eighth Day! Thank you so much for the amazing music you play! So excited for the conference!

  10. Hey Bob Rice! I’m from Canada and I’ll be coming to Steubenville Ohio! Can you play “Running” by Hillsong, “Every Move I Make (Waves of Mercy)” Thanks and God Bless
