I'm looking for the hymn that starts with the phrase "If We Keep Our Voices Silent" and goes on something like this: "All creation will rise and shout. If we fail to praise you Father, The very rocks cry out". Thanks for any help you can give - what a great idea!

Hi Guest,

Here's what I could find:

From the corners of creation
Come the people of the Living God.
Ev'ry tongue and ev'ry nation
Gather now to praise the Lord!

If we keep our voices silent,
All creation will rise and shout.
If we fail to praise You, Father,
Then will the very rocks cry out.

From a world of tribulation
Come and let your voice be raised.
Join us now in congregation.
Let the Living God be praised.

If we keep our voices silent,
All creation will rise and shout.
If we fail to praise You, Father,
Then will the very rocks cry out.

I believe the lyrics are copyrighted, so if you plan to use this in a performance, it's included in this book of Tom Fettke Arrangements or this book.


Hope it helps!

Thanks,
Steve

Thanks !! I too was wondering what the choral group on Family Radio was singing. In the last line of the 2nd and 4th verses it sounds like some giberish like "...praise You, Father, then a military box triumph" !

LOL!!

I love this piece but it's been driving me crazy months every time they play it I've been trying to figure out the "military walks right out " something or other. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who was thinking the very same thing!

THANKS, this made my day.

The anthem title is 'Then Will the Very Rocks Cry Out''. Words and music by Gary McSpadden, Bill George, John W. Thompson, and Randy L. Scruggs. Arranged by Mark Hayes. Our choir has sung this anthem several times, It's a great anthem!

Thanks for the help. I am, also, trying to find where the passage appears in the Bible. I found it once, but didn't write a note about it. Now, I am looking for it again, but don't know where to look.

I confess...... I too couldn't decipher "then will the very rocks cry out", when Mel Moulder would give his creation talk on Family Radio.
Eventually somehow my brain made the connection with a passage in the Bible that talks about "the very rocks crying out", if someone doesn't praise God, as He so much deserves to be praised.
I love this refrain, because it's so powerful, and Biblical!
