Glory Revealed: By His Wounds

Last week, a friend of mine asked me to play mandolin and sing on the “Glory Revealed” song “By His Wounds” with him tonight. I hadn’t heard this song until last week, and I am impressed with its simple nature as well as the excellent mandolin solos by Jason Hoard on this cut.

While Glory Revealed sounds as though it is the name of the band, it is not – it is the name of the project that features various artists. It was just easier to refer to Mac Powell, Steven Curtis Chapman, Brian Littrell, and Mark Hall by the overall project banner name.

The first verse is sung by Mac Powell of Third Day; Steven Curtis Chapman follows with the second; Mac Powell and Mark Hall of Casting Crowns split both choruses; the third verse has Brian Littrell; and Steven Curtis Chapman to the lead the final verse with Mark Hall contributing the tag.

The “Glory Revealed” CD won the 2008 Dove Award for Special Event Album of the Year and “By His Wounds” won the 2008 Dove Award for the Inspirational Recorded Song of the Year.
