Tip #2 for Writing Worship Songs: Free Writing

Tip #2: Go back to what your high school english comp teacher taught you.
Start with free writing. Let your thoughts flow onto a page without criticism. Don’t think too much. After that, viciously edit and revise. Move parts around to see if it works better. Don’t be afraid to toss out any phrase or idea if it’s not working with the rest of the song. As a worship song, you should edit with the church in mind. So make sure it’s singable, simple, passionate and clear. Ambiguous metaphors are not really good for worship songs.
