The Sounds of Conquering Grace

"Shout for joy to God all the earth; Sing the glory of His name;
Give to Him glorious praise!" (Psalm 66:1-2, ESV)

 

VERSE

1.   All around the world
         Are voices joined in praise
      All singing of the grace of God
         Whose voice the dead can raise

2.   Down through every age
         When God makes known His Word
      Each generation adds its voice
         And new songs can be heard

CHORUS

     Come and hear the grand design of God
         The sounds of conquering grace
      For everywhere His gospel goes
         His praises fill that place!
            Ev'ry tribe and tongue and voice
            Praising God with joyful noise
         Filling every place—
         It's the sound of conquering grace!

VERSE

3.   Hear His masterpiece
         Crescendo age to age
      Each life He makes anew, a voice
         He adds upon His stage

4.   Each adds to the sound
         A glorious tapestry
      Of joyful praise that will resound
         Into eternity

CHORUS

     Come and hear the grand design of God
         The sounds of conquering grace
      For everywhere His gospel goes
         His praises fill that place!
            Ev'ry tribe and tongue and voice
            Praising God with joyful noise
         Filling every place—
         It's the sound of conquering grace!

BRIDGE

      No language we can speak
       Can tell of all His grace
      No favorite music is enough
       To sing in every place
      No style can contain
       The fullness of His praise
      And no one voice can sing of all
       The wonders He displays

CHORUS

     Come and hear the grand design of God
         The sounds of conquering grace
      For everywhere His gospel goes
         His praises fill that place!
            Ev'ry tribe and tongue and voice
            Praising God with joyful noise
         Filling every place—
         It's the sound of grace!

FINAL CHORUS

     Come and hear the grand design of God
         The sounds of conquering grace
      For everywhere His gospel goes
         His praises fill that place!
            Ev'ry tribe and tongue and voice
            Praising God with joyful noise
         Filling every place—
         It's the sound of conquering grace!

TAG

         It's the sound of conquering grace!
         It's the sound of conquering grace!

WORDS: Ken Puls and Rebecca Ascol, October 2012
MUSIC: Ken Puls and Rebecca Ascol, October 2012
THEME: Praise to God Resounding in the Music of the World

The idea for this song began in August 2012 when Tim Brister, who serves with me as a fellow pastor at Grace, shared with me some of the music he recorded on a recent trip to Haiti. It brought back memories of experiences I had hearing music while in Indonesia and Israel. I was reminded again that there are believers all over the world who are singing praises to God, and most are not singing like Americans. When you consider all the music that God has rescued and sanctified for His own glory—all around the world and in every age—the scope and variety of sounds are staggering. God is continually adding voices and instruments to His tapestry of praise. No one style or type or preference can possibly contain or fully express the manifold praise of God!
