A New Song About the Gospel of the Kingdom

A New Song About the Gospel of the Kingdom March 28, 2021

A strong part of our Christian heritage is the practice of writing new lyrics to well-known tunes. This practice goes back to at least the Reformers. But I suspect it precedes that.

In February 2012, I delivered a message to a Christian community entitled Living in the Divine Parenthesis. The night before I brought the message, I wrote a song as a companion to the talk called “He Has Anointed Us.”

I wrote the song to the tune of Wavin’ Flag by K’naan — a specific version of it performed by the Young Artists for Haiti. I regard their version to be one of the most inspiring melodies of our time. (It’s not a “Christian” song, but a secular one.)

In July 2012, a community of Christians I know took the lyrics I wrote and recorded the new song in a studio. And . . . well . . . it blew me away.

These saints did an amazing job. I hope you’re inspired by the song.

Here’s a video of it along with lyrics.

If you find it valuable, please share it. Not sure how videos go viral exactly, but I’d love to see God’s people hear this song.
