“We’ve been singing it, we’ve heard it in different versions, but the amazing thing about the song, Way Maker, is that it was born in the Federal Republic of Nigeria, written by Sinach.”
Since its release, many Christian artists are creating their own rendition of a worship song. Artists including Steffany Gretzinger, Leeland, Paul McClure, Caleb and Kelsey, and Michael Smith. “The father has given Jesus the nations as his inheritance, and this is never more powerfully demonstrated than when every tribe and language gather before him in worship. The song is about worshipping the Lord no matter what your circumstances may be because you trust that He is with you always. No wonder, it has become a popular worship song that is commonly sung in churches worldwide.”
The original music video by Sinach now has over 150 million views on YouTube.
This version of Way Maker features worship leader and the pastor of Deeper Fellowship Church, William McDowell, and Darlene Zschech, who is also the pastor of HopeUC. “The timeless vocal of Darlene along with exhortations from William about what God is doing in the nations will hopefully leave you inspired and in awe of the Miracle Worker.”
Their hope with the REVERE version of Way Maker is to “gently help steer the church away from a production culture where the emphasis can, mistakenly, become a love for worship, to a reverential culture where the focus is, clearly and firmly, a love for Christ.”
