Every once in a while, a song pierces my heart and touches me so deeply that I am moved to tears. This morning, as I was driving to New York, I decided to finally listen to a CD that I’ve owned for years now. And I believe that was a God thing, because I discovered a song called “We Speak To Nations” by Israel Houghton…and the words absolutely resonated within my soul and moved me to tears because it speaks about my greatest passion: serving others and taking Christ to the nations.
Here are the lyrics…thank you, Lord, for songs like these that resonate so deeply within our souls and draw us nearer to you!
Hear the sound The sound of the nations calling Hear the sound The sound of the fatherless crying Who will go for us Who will shout to the corners Of the earth That Christ is King Chorus: We speak to nations, "Be Open" We speak to nations, "Fall On Your Knees" We speak to nations, "The Kingdom is com - ing near to you" Oh, we speak to strongholds, "Be Broken," "Powers of darkness, you have to flee" We speak to nations, "The Kingdom is com - ing near to you" We speak to you, "Be free, yeah be free" Hear the sound The sound of the nations worshiping Hear the sound Of sons and daughters singing We will go for you We will shout to the cor - ners of the earth That Christ is King
