"Until the Whole World Hears"

By Casting Crowns—a song declaring our desire to be proclaimers of God's Gospel in the spirit of John the Baptizer and the Prophets Isaiah and Elijiah before him.

Recorded to accompany the Hope At Home sermon video for Sunday, May 17th, 2020.

Like voices in the wilderness, we're crying out; and as the day draws near, we'll sing until the whole world hears.

John 1:19-27 NKJV Now this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, "Who are you?" 20 He confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, "I am not the Christ." 21 And they asked him, "What then? Are you Elijah?" He said, "I am not." "Are you the Prophet?" And he answered, "No." 22 Then they said to him, "Who are you, that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?" 23 He said: "I am 'The voice of one crying in the wilderness: "Make straight the way of the Lord," ' as the prophet Isaiah said." 24 Now those who were sent were from the Pharisees. 25 And they asked him, saying, "Why then do you baptize if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?" 26 John answered them, saying, "I baptize with water, but there stands One among you whom you do not know. 27 It is He who, coming after me, is preferred before me, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose."

Verse 1:

Lord I want to feel Your heart,
And see the world through Your eyes.

I want to be Your hands and feet;
I want to live a life that leads.

Pre-Chorus 1:

Ready yourselves, ready yourselves.
Let us shine the light of Jesus in the darkest night

Ready yourselves, ready yourselves.
May the powers of darkness tremble as our praises rise

Chorus 1:

Until the whole world hears, Lord, we are calling out;
Lifting up Your name for all to hear the sound.

Like voices in the wilderness, we're crying out;
And as the day draws near, we'll sing until the whole world hears.

Verse 2:

Lord let Your sleeping giant rise,
Catch the demons by surprise

Holy nation sanctified,
Let this be our battle cry

Pre-Chorus 2:

Ready yourselves, ready yourselves.
Let us shine the light of Jesus in the darkest night

Ready yourselves, ready yourselves.
May the powers of darkness tremble as our praises rise

Until the whole world hears, Lord, we are calling out;
Lifting up Your name for all to hear the sound.

Bridge 1:

Sing until the whole world hears.

Sing until the whole world hears.

Bridge 2:

I want to be Your hands and feet,
I want to live a life that leads,
To see You set the captives free;
Until the whole world hears.

And I pray that they will see,
More of You and less of me.
Lord I want my life to be the song You sing.

Final Chorus:

Until the whole world hears, Lord, we are calling out;
Lifting up Your name for all to hear the sound.

Like voices in the wilderness, we're crying out;
And as the day draws near, we'll sing until the whole world hears.
