“Across the Lands” is a hymn that celebrates God speaking, from calling creation into being, to the incarnation—God’s Word made flesh, to his death and resurrection, and his ongoing intercession on our behalf.
Echoing the language of John 1, the hymn is used increasingly as a song for Advent as well as being a call to worship and a declaration of faith.
Having written the song for the launch of the Operation World prayer book, it was a pleasure to bring it back and feature it as part at the TGC missions conference earlier this year. Kristyn and I consider it a privilege to join in the mission of The Gospel Coalition as we work together to develop a canon of new and theologically rich hymns for the church.
It is our pleasure to provide for you a free sheet music copy of “Across the Lands” (with gratitude to our publisher for their generosity in this as well) and pray it will be useful to you and your church during this season of Advent and all year long.
