This story started with a simple Facebook message. Today, it has turned into the recording of a worship song “Your Word” in multiple languages with talented singers about the Word of God. The song will be released at the end of November, but already today you’re invited behind the scenes atmosphere at the the recording of the song in the first six languages.
This is a testimony of passion for the Word of God. At the United Bible Societies we love the Bible. We are working towards the day when everyone can access the Bible in the language and medium of their choice. With “Your Word” Scripture is shared through music, in many languages.
It all started with a Facebook message this summer from Billy Dorsey, a multi-award winning musician from USA. We connected immediately, sharing the same passion for the Bible. We shared Billy’s story here with you, how he grew from being homeless to a success in a music industry.
Following that article Billy wrote “Your Word” a Scripture based worship song. But it’s more than a worship song. Thanks to musicians and Bible Societies partnering together net revenues from the online release on iTunes will be dedicated to Bible translation. “Your Word” will help people to receive the Word of God in their languages in a crowdfunding way.
Here are some thoughts from these Christian star singers in the video:
“Of course the message of the Bible speaks for itself, but when there’s a song about it I think it reaches the emotions of people and they accept more easily something.” Thierry Ostrini, France
“I think that everybody in the world, all over the world, need to have the translation of the Bible, to know Jesus” Lidia Genta, Italy
“I think it’s very important in this time to draw people’s attention to God’s Word” Darina Kochanzhi, Ukraine
“I hope that this project and this song will raise awareness of the treasure that we have and also the joy of sharing it.” Sefora Nelson, Germany
Please look forward to next announcements about the song releases. Owning a MP3 of this song will enable you also to give a Bible to someone who doesn’t have it in their own language today.
