Ministry collective and worship team Here Be Lions teamed up with world-renowned Australian worship leader, Darlene Zschech ("Victor's Crown," "In Jesus' Name, "Shout To The Lord"), earlier this year to release a new song, "I Speak Jesus." The track originally debuted on Here Be Lion's EP, I Speak Jesus, and was been newly reimagined as a powerful male-female duet.
"The song came as easy as it sounds," shares Here Be Lion's Dustin Smith ("God Who Moves The Mountains," "Miracles") in regards to the writing of the song. "Jesse Reeves prayed over us before we started writing and just said, 'I just want to speak the name of Jesus over these people.' That was it. The whole prayer. Nothing more. Nothing less. When we went to write I asked if we could write a song based on his prayer. He said, 'all I did was say the name of Jesus.' And that is all I want to say over my congregation, over my family, over my sickness, over depression and anxiety. All we needed was a melody because we already had the most powerful word...Jesus. There is mighty power in the name of Jesus."
The song's new rendition followed an exciting season for both Zschech and Here Be Lions, as Smith and his wife Jeanna recently launched HopeUC Nashville, a greater vision of Darlene Zschech's Hope Unlimited Church (Hope UC) in New South Wales, Australia. Now with churches in 11 major cities throughout Australia, India and the United States, Hope UC continues to shout the resounding truth and freedom that hope is a person, and His name is Jesus.
Thank you, Darlene Zschech and Here Be Lions, for your combined decades of ministry in worship!
