Tip #6 for Writing Worship Songs: The Hook

Tip #6: Look for the hook
A hook is a musical phrase captures the attention of the listener and “hooks” them into listening and remembering the song. A hook should be clearly presented, then repeated and developed throughout the song. A song without a hook is like a boat without a rudder; it floats around different ideas without any direction or goal. Build the song around the hook. If the hook is “I am Delivered” then the rest of the song should develop the idea. Delivered from what? Delivered by whom? Delivered into what? Delivered how?
