I first heard the song God Be Praised a year ago at a Worship Conference put on by Gateway Church. Â I was captured immediately by the melodic flow and anthemic declaration of this song. Â In a live worship environment it really draws the crowd in and elevates the experience to a celebration of faith. Â It’s an incredible proclamation of the truth that Jesus has conquered death and set us free…God Be Praised!
Hallelujah – We’re redeemed and made free
By the blood of the Lamb we have won
Hallelujah – WeÂ will sing victory
Jesus conquered the grave
God Be Praised!
Musically, I love the key shifts and tempo change mid-song. Â I’ve done this song live a couple times and people have seemed to engage with it quickly. Â Gateway Worship recently released the live DVD to go along with the recording. Â I’ve posted the video from that below.
What did you think? Â Would you use this in your live Worship Experience?
