“By His Wounds”, the lead-single from the multi-artist worship album project, Glory Revealed: The Word of God in Worship, has set a new record on the R&R INSPO Radio Chart. It stayed at No. 1 for eleven consecutive weeks. “By His Wounds”, written by Third Day lead vocalist Mac Powell and evangelist David Nasser, is performed by a powerhouse vocal lineup, including Mac Powell; Steven Curtis Chapman; Brian Littrell; and Casting Crowns lead vocalist, Mark Hall.
“By His Wounds” co-writer, Mac Powell, shares his reaction to the accomplishment, “We are blown away with the success of ‘By His Wounds’ at INSPO Radio. It’s so great that people have caught the vision that we have of helping us all to learn God’s word through music. What an honor to be able to be part of a song with such great artists singing about God’s great sacrifice for us all.”
The Glory Revealed Tour recently wrapped up a 16-city run with several sold-out shows, including the kick-off show in Frederick, Maryland. The tour ended in front of another near sold-out crowd in Mac Powell’s hometown of Atlanta, Georgia, that featured a guest appearance by Mark Hall of Casting Crowns.
The tour was sponsored by World Vision, WorshipTogether.com and The Worship Network, who supplied the video for the tour. In addition to providing images on three screens during each concert, The Worship Network worked with David Nasser and “Jesus Painter” Mike Lewis to create an original video for the song, “By His Wounds.”
“All of us on tour recognized early on that this was a rare and special thing to be a part of. It was obvious that God was up to something big. We were all humbled to get to be a part of it,” said Nasser.
The evening featured all artists in-the-round singing familiar worship songs as well as several cuts from the album, Glory Revealed: The Word of God in Worship. The night also contained a powerful message from Nasser, encouraging attendees to truly discover the Word through a relationship with Jesus Christ and through the Bible.
