Still Rising!!!

I just learned today that Let It Rise has cracked through the top 50 CCLI Songs. It’s so amazing to see how God is using this simple little song that began as a spontaneous song that was first introduced at Calvary Chapel Point Loma during their Wednesday night Bible Study in a coffee shop located right on the boardwalk in Pacific Beach.

I want to give a shout out to Jeremy Redmond and Big Daddy Weave for bringing this song into the new millennium. I also want to give a shout out to William Murphy for bringing this song into the gospel community. His version went to # 1 on the gospel charts and helped open an entirely new audience. William Murphy was able to capture the desperation and heart cry of the song. I also want to give a shout out to 21:03 and PAJAM for putting out one of the most original gospel versions of Let It Rise to date. It’s available on Maranatha! Music’s Top 25 Gospel Praise. Finally, I’d be remiss if I didn’t thank the worship leader that introduced Let It Rise to the world…. Paul Baloche.

I have so many versions of this song… that I’ve made a little side hobby of collecting everyone’s version of the song. If you have a version of Let It Rise… I’d love to hear it!!! Please email it to
