about

The Sing Team is just what you would expect from their name - a merry troupe of family and friends who are always ready to party to the glory of God. Yet with inspiration ranging from Motown to The Muppets, it’s unlike anything you’ve heard before. A band that formed out of a community group, The Sing Team now leads worship regularly at Mars Hill Ballard. The ensemble is led by Deacon Brian Eichelberger, one of the main songwriters at Mars Hill Church. The Sing Team's tunes are filled with straightforward, joyful lyrics that celebrate God’s grace and the group’s reliance on Jesus. 

Marked by a swarm of group vocals, soulful string melodies, and infectious bass riffs, Oh! Great Is Our God! is The Sing Team’s second EP. The title track, ‘Oh! Great is Our God!’, opens the album with a compelling invitation to worship the glorious God. From there, the songs continue to reveal a complete dependance on Jesus, including ‘Satisfied in You’, a reminder to preach the gospel to yourself in despairing circumstances based on Psalm 42.

Track Name: Oh! Great Is Our God!
Oh! Great is our God! So we should worship greatly!!
No song is too loud! No orchestra too stately
To hail the majesty of our King
So lift your voices loud as we sing

Oh! Great is our God! So let our songs be endless!!
So awesome His ways, how could we comprehend them?
So we will make it known to our kids
And we will sing about the gracious gifts you give

We will sing your praise and pour forth your fame
We will bless your name
Let every one give thanks, because our God is great!

Oh! Great is our God! And we cannot contain it!
We sing from our souls, affected by His greatness
His mercy covers all that Heʼs made
Showing His glory and His grace
Track Name: As Long As I Live (Psalm 63)
Oh God, you are my God
I am seeking you like sunny days in winter months
My soul is thirsty for you, my body longs for you
In a dry and weary land, where thereʼs no water PreChorus

I have seen you in the sanctuary,
I have seen your power and glory
Because your love is so much better than my life
My lips will glorify you

I will praise you as long as I live
I will praise you as long as I live,
I will praise you as long as I live

All day I think of you
In my bed at night, I cannot help but think of you
Because you are my help, my soul clings to you
And youʼre the only thing that holds me up
Track Name: Because Jesus Christ Is Alive
We get tired, we canʼt win
We were dead in our sin
But thereʼs a hope, a new life
The pressureʼs off, cause Jesus Christʼs alive

So we can rejoice,
though weʼre grieved by various trials for a little while
ʻcause a genuine faith under testing
brings honor and glory to our great King

By Godʼs great mercy we have been born again,
because Jesus Christ is alive
Our living hope is in our inheritance,
because Jesus Christ is alive
No grip of fear, no sting in death,
by His mercy we have been born again
because Jesus Christ is alive

We donʼt have to bear the load
We donʼt have to have control
We are free from guilt and shame
ʻcause when He rose, he left death in itʼs grave

No grip of fear, no sting in death,
because Jesus Christ is alive
Weʼre free from guilt, weʼre free from shame,
because Jesus Christ is alive
Weʼre free to live for Jesusʼ fame,
because Jesus Christ is alive
Track Name: Satisfied in You (Psalm 42)
I have lost my appetite
And a flood is welling up behind my eyes
So I eat the tears I cry
And if that were not enough
They know just the words to cut and tear and prod
When they ask me “Whereʼs your God?”

Why are you downcast, oh my soul?
Why so disturbed within me?
I can remember when you showed your face to me

As a deer pants for water, so my soul thirsts for you
And when I survey Your splendor, You so faithfully renew
Like a bed of rest for my fainting flesh

When Iʼm looking at the ground
Itʼs an inbred feedback loop that drags me down
So itʼs time to lift my brow
And remember better days
When I loved to worship you and learn your ways
Singing sweetest songs of praise

Let my sighs give way to songs that sing about your faithfulness
Let my pain reveal your glory as my only real rest
Let my losses show me all I truly have is you

So when Iʼm drowning out at sea
And all your breakers and your waves crash down on me
Iʼll recall your safety scheme
Youʼre the one who made the waves
And your Son went out to suffer in my place
And to show me that Iʼm safe

Why am I down?
Why so disturbed?
I am satisfied in you
Track Name: What a Friend We Have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus,
all our sins and griefs to bear
What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer!
Oh, what peace we often forfeit,
Oh what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer

Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
Jesus, Savior, is our refuge, take it to the Lord in prayer
Are we weak and heavy laden,
cumbered with a load of care?
Jesus knows our every weakness, take it to the Lord in prayer

Blessed Savior, You have promised,
all our burdens You will bear May we ever,
Lord, be bringing all to you in earnest prayer
Soon, in glory bright unclouded,
face to face will be our prayer
Joyful praise and endless worship
will be our sweet portion there
