Wednesday Is for Worship: “Shout to the Lord”

It’s Wednesday once again.  Are you ready to do a little shouting?!  A shout of praise, that is.  There’s a lot to shout about, and today’s song will help you along.

“Shout to the Lord” was written in 1993 by Darlene Zschech and published through Hillsong Music Publishing.  It is by far the most popular song Zschech has written.  In fact, here in 2012, it still remains on the CCLI Top 25 List, which charts the most-used worship songs as reported monthly by churches.  That’s 19 years after it was published!  I’d say it now a classic and here to stay.

It’s easy understand why.  The lyrics are wonderfully Christ-centered and Christ-exalting, and although the lyrics are simply one verse and a chorus, there’s a lot to feed the soul on as you praise the Lord.  I’ve been worshiping the Lord with this song since 1997 when the Lord saved me and to this day, love to give the Lord a shout of praise with this song.  Why don’t you do the same today?!!

My Jesus, my Savior
Lord there is none like You
All of my days I want to praise
The wonders of Your mighty love
My comfort, my shelter
Tower of refuge and strength
Let every breath, all that I am
Never cease to worship You

Shout to the Lord
All the Earth, let us sing
Power and majesty
Praise to the King
Mountains bow down
And the seas will roar
At the sound of Your name
I sing for joy at the work
Of Your hands
Forever I’ll love You
Forever I’ll stand
Nothing compares
To the promise I have in You
