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.

Praise the God of grace and glory
for the wonders of his love;
angels tell of his great mercy
in giving us his Son.

Through the Holy Spirit's power,
Christ our saviour comes to birth,
bringing glory to the Father
and hope to all the earth.

Glory to God in the highest heaven,
peace on earth, mercy for all!
See how the gift of love is given:
Christ the Lord is born for us.

God is veiled in human weakness,
born to bear our grief and sin.
Grace and truth draw near to save us
in Christ the humble King.

Praise the God of restoration
for the gift of Christ our King
Join the angels' celebration,
come, worship him and sing:

Glory to God, glory to God
Glory to God, glory to God.

The inspiration for this song comes from Luke 2:8-14 where some lowly shepherds have an amazing encounter with the glory of God and hear the great news that a saviour has been born Jesus, Gods ultimate gift of love to us . The verses speak of Gods mercy and salvation as revealed through the incarnation, offering hope and peace to all, and then encourage us to respond in praise, adding our song to that of the angels, giving glory to God!

I thought you might like to know that we sang this song this Christmas. Both words and music were very much appreciated. We have regular meetings where we try out 3 or 4 new songs. This was the one we wanted to use in our Sunday morning service. Thank you.

Nice song! Hauntingly memorable modal melody... the Bsus4 and B chords are a nice departure from the otherwise minor quality of the tune. Well done!
