Those ENGLISH worship leaders / song writers

This is my opinion
This is may not be an entirely correct point of view
I may come across ignorant
But I write anyway
Because these thoughts spill out,
in the words of EMPIRE RECORDS “Who knows where thoughts come from? They just appear” (Lucas to Joe)

I have noticed here in South Africa, we sing a lot of worship songs from “elsewhere” particularly England.
We also sing songs by Chris Tomlin (US), Dave Crowder (US) and Hillsong (AUS).
But a lot of churches worship with songs by:
Matt Redman
Delirious
Tim Hughes
Al Gordon

And that God me thinking…
Isn’t it odd, how from an apparent “Christianity is dying” country: England, that a lot of good worship songs come from that place.

Why? I thought these may be the reason:
i) The worship industry is bigger there. Music sells well that side. People push these worship leaders well in the UK and thus their songs get known and are used.

HOWEVER

ii) I believe in a place where “Christainity is not the popular thing” those who do make a decision to follow Jesus have really stood up against a large majority. They have made a real passionate decision following Jesus.
And out of those places, these guys above have written HEART FELT profound lyrics.

I mean “sometimes” in South Africa its really easy to be a Christian. Sometimes there are too many who wear the “of course I am a Christian label”
YET their lifestyles do not match.
and Christians and non Christians look the same.

Just a thought.
I really do love the lyrics of many UK song worship leaders, wow!
Just to think, what was on their heart when they “wrote” and uttered those words to God.
I am moved.

In conclusion I am sure there are quite a few SONGS FROM AFRICA.

I write an observe ONLY from a general “white westernized” church.
Will you point me to good songs of Africa?

Concluding, it is good to express our hearts to God. Because He is amazing.
