Listen to the sound

Added 12th October 2013


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.

NB This song has two different choir arrangements. 'Choir score' is a straight four-part harmony 'Concert Bundle' has a more creative arrangement designed to fit with a band and lead vocalist.

Listen to the sound of the angels singing
their gospel song.
Listen to the joyful news they're bringing:
Jesus has come!
Glory to God in the highest heaven,
peace on the earth.
Hope is rising, fear subsiding,
where the song is heard.

So let your gospel song be heard,
raise your voice in all the earth;
join the angels singing 'glory'.
Let your festive anthem sound;
hope and joy and peace abound,
as we sing the Christmas story.

Come with a song of celebration,
come to your king.
Fall to your knees in adoration
and worship him.
He is the Lord of earth and heaven,
God's only son.
Lift up a shout to all creation:
Jesus has come!

Sing, sing, sing
to the king, king, king
who has come!

Bible Passages: Luke 2

This is a Christmas call to worship which, for quite a simple song, took several years to write. I had most of it for a long time, but it wasn't until I moved it into a more bluegrass style that I found the right tone for the chorus, carrying through idea of a gospel song that begins with the angels and continues through us. Then the end section came out of a jam with Chris Pearse and seemed the perfect joyful response. Finally, the the Weeks brothers got hold of it when producing our Christmas Songs album and transformed it into a contemporary, edgy anthem. It's amazing the journey a song can go on! I hope it brings something a bit different into the Christmas celebration.
