If you’re a fan of what we do, would you consider supporting us with a one-off or regular gift?
Resound Worship is a ministry of the Song and Hymn Writers Foundation, a charity dedicated to publishing quality worship songs as well as training, resourcing and influencing worship songwriters from the grass roots to published composers. We’d really value your support.

Come, let's sing
to the Rock of ages,
worship him,
joyful and contagious;
bring a song of glory to our God.

Come, let's bow,
kneel before our maker,
praise him now,
there is no-one greater;
bring a song of glory to our God.

He made the earth, the oceans wide,
the desert plains, the mountain heights;
the heavens praise him and his people cry:

O the Lord our God is great,
our God is King of all the earth.
Raise a shout, let praise ring out,
our God is King of all the earth.

And now if we hear his voice,
the sound of his glory reaching down,
then with humble hearts we'll turn towards him.
Now if we hear his voice,
the sound of his glory reaching down,
then with humble hearts we'll turn towards him,
bow before him.

During the last 12 months I've run songwriting workshops on both sides of the globe. In each workshop we try to model song-critiquing and collaboration, and I always take along something I'm working on. This is the song I've shared with several groups this past year. Their collective thoughts, observations and constructive suggestions have all contributed to this finished song. It's been hard work, trying to stick closely to essence of the psalm while keeping a simple structure and rhyme scheme, and it's taken many weeks and many miles to get there. Thank you to everyone who's played a part! I hope it will be prove a lively, joyful and humble call to worship our great creator God.

Hi Joel . We enjoyed using this song to open both morning services last Sunday . It works really well as a call/ encouragement to worship .

We opened our service tonight with this, and despite singing 6 other songs after it, I can't get the chorus out of my head :) great song and well received!

I love this song, especially with a Cure-esque "It's Friday I'm in Love" feel behind it.
How about on the last line of the bridge ("Bow before Him") going to [capo 3] Cm/ Bow, Dm7/ be, Eb / for, F / Him. (Notes of the tune would be - [concert] Eb, F, G, A. (A bit Beatles or They Might be Giants.)
Great song!

A great 'opener' song Joel. Filling the 'call to worship' niche.
I especially like the bridge.

Great to hear the final version of this , Joel . Love the middle 8 lyric 'the sound of his glory reaching down..' Should work really well as a service opener.

Great song - Can't wait to use it in worship! Maybe it's just me but I can't help but go to a D chord (F) at the first 'earth' in the chorus.
