    Hunter Lynch addresses God’s omniscience in his new text, “God of Knowledge, All-Consuming.” What I love about this is that Hunter begins with God’s omniscience as wisdom, mystery, and discernment, rather than painting God as a celestial Santa. He quickly moves to how God’s endless knowledge matters to us humans–”you know my need.” In verse 3, he takes a turn from God knowing to God making himself known. In the final verse, we will no longer see “through a glass darkly,” but all beauty, truth, and mystery will be revealed.

    This song is mentioned in Greg’s podcast, “2021 Musical Year in Review.

    In this song’s lyrics, Tammy Moody ties together images of harvesting the land, social justice, and the Lord’s Supper. The more connections we can make between what we do in worship and in the world, the better.

    This song sets the story of Isaiah 6 to a Rwandan melody. It gives us a picture of the angels in heaven singing, “Holy, holy, you are holy,” and the third verse reminds us of our hope to join believers from every nation with the angels in giving glory to God.

    You can almost imagine Jesus coming closer as this song progresses: The verses begin with prophecies of the Messiah with which the crowd would have been familiar (Ps 24, Is 40) and the people answer with the Palm Sunday refrain of “Hosanna in the highest!” It uses the familiar Jewish folk tune (“The King of Glory Comes”), which your congregation likely already knows.

    There are only a handful of great Palm Sunday hymns, especially ones that can be sung during a palm processional. “Hosanna in the Highest!” is a stately hymn with an easily-learned chorus and narrative verses that move dramatically toward Jerusalem. The text can also be sung to the Jewish folk tune associated with “The King of Glory Comes.”

    One of the things I occasionally do in my songs is dedicate a verse to each person of the Trinity. In this song it takes the form of 1) Jesus Christ, the rock upon which the church is built 2) the Spirit who descends like a dove as we worship 3) the Lord God who has shown us mercy and deserves our offerings of praise. The song is also appropriate for prayer meetings; if you’d like to change the lyrics to “House of Prayer” for such occasions feel free to do so.

    The title phrase gives the impression of a wide-eyed universalist anthem of feel-good hope. But a deeper look shows a hymn that recognizes both the struggles of life and the hope of faith in Christ. This Just Add People arrangement brings out the lament of the verses with a minor harmonization, switching to a major key when the refrain proclaims confidently: No storm can shake my inmost calm.”

  • I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say (KINGSFOLD)

    KINGSFOLD is a fitting tune for this hymn’s calm confidence in Jesus’s comfort, and this Just Add People arrangement includes a fresh piano accompaniment with a sparkling intro and outro. This arrangement is also available with the texts “O Sing a Song of Bethlehem” and “We Sing the Mighty Power of God.” The string quartet arrangement available below can also be used with congregational singing and adds lyrical interludes between each verse.
