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.

We come to hear your word:
Lord, open up our hearts and lives again.
So let your voice be heard:
we're ready to receive this daily bread.

Your word is truth and life to us,
so light the way.
As we believe your promises,
renew our faith.

We come to hear your word:
let revelation shape our hearts anew.
We long to know you more:
come, Spirit, lead us deeper into truth.

Themes: God's Word

A simple song to help a congregation prepare to hear God speak – whether through Scripture, a sermon, or through the revelatory gifts. The essence of the song is a call that the Holy Spirit would "guide us into all truth" as Jesus promised in John 16:13.
 
The lyrics reference several Biblical images about how we should receive the Word: as daily bread, as truth, as life, as a light for our path, as transforming power, as promises from God, and as a foundation for faith. The most obvious place to use the song is before Bible readings or the sermon, but it’s also useful for leading more general times of response and openness to God.
