"Shout to the Lord" is probably the best known song written by the Hillsong songwriter Darlene Zschech. It picks up the powerful and majestic themes and images of the Psalms, particularly chapters 95 to 100.
It was estimated in 2006 that 25 million churchgoers worldwide sang "Shout to the Lord" in any one week. The song continues to be well known and was sung on American Idol in 2008.
My Jesus, my Saviour 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
Nathan Black reporting for the Christian Post
- When the contestants [of American Idol] sang the song [Shout to the Lord] again near the beginning of Thursday's results show, many Christians were pleasantly surprised to hear "Jesus." The religious song, however, continued to irk others who did not find it appealing to a wide audience.
