Pairing theologically rich lyrics with soaring melodies, Peoria, Illinois-based Grace Worship incorporates both classical and pop influences for its recording of “Calvary’s Anthem” that releases today (March 20). Available at digital and streaming outlets globally, this is the second single from this worship team’s debut Christ Be All EP available to preorder now from Grace Worship / The Fuel Music.

Drawing on its 150-year church history (Grace Presbyterian Church) to bring a multi-generational focus to Christ Be All, the EP is centered on Jesus' prayer in John 17 for the body to be “one” and honors the rich heritage of Christian hymnody while incorporating modern anthemic choruses and pop hooks.

This unique blend, reaching across generations and music genres, is especially captured well in “Calvary’s Anthem.” The new single features lyrics from Robert Lowery’s classic hymn, “Nothing But the Blood,” along with verse lyrics to accompany its traditional Appalachian melody by Grace Presbyterian Church pastor Dr. Bryan Chapell. Additional melody, chorus and bridge is supplied by worship director Kevin King, who also sings the song and orchestrated the piece.

“With brilliant brass, sensitive strings and a powerful band, this track centers on Christ’s interceding work on the cross that causes hell’s hold to cease and frees us to a life of joyful worship,” says King.

With Worship Musician premiering the “Calvary’s Anthem” video this week, King also wrote and leads the EP’s title track and “Christ Be All (Live)” video that was premiered by Worship Leader. The title song incorporates words from Andrew Murray's classic book, Humility, and is meant to help worshippers express, along with the Apostle Paul, “It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me" (Galatians 2:20) as they sing, "May Christ be all and I be nothing.”
