Download: Awake My Soul – Hillsong Worship feat. Tasha Cobbs Leonard
Leader/songwriter Brooke Ligertwood of Hillsong Worship teams up with Tasha Cobbs Leonard, in a special collaborative edition of “Awake My Soul.”
“Awake My Soul” is a song-cry of intercessional praise and an invitation to consider the spiritual ‘sound’ of the Saviour’s response. The song is a powerful expression of spiritual warfare.
“We witnessed the COVID-19 pandemic evolve, as it reached a point that necessitated the postponement of live events and conferences the world over. It became clear we weren’t going to be able to execute what we’d originally planned. However, the collaboration felt important, so perhaps there was something else we could do…And so, ‘Awake My Soul with Tasha Cobbs Leonard’ was birthed.” – Hillsong Worship.
Though we could not have foreseen the potent timing of this collaboration, it was well within the Lord’s realm of knowledge and so we are grateful, yet not surprised!”
“What God was birthing in us was on purpose, and it was for this time,” adds Tasha Cobbs Leonard.” ‘“Awake My Soul’ calls for the Church to arise and take authority. It reminds us of eternal weight and an eternal calling. Together, this anthem is the Church’s declaration that there is an awakening taking place in the earth. The Kingdom of God is alive!’
“Awake My Soul” is Hillsong Worship’s first collaboration since partnering with Delirious back in 2004. The duo (Ligertwood and Cobbs Leonard) have been friends for years and share the same passion for worship and the same desire to connect people to God. Together, they pray that this rendition will be a reflection of God’s heart for His Church: unity, diversity, peace and power.
“Our hope is that this version of ‘Awake My Soul’ unequivocally exhorts every believer who hears it to PRAY with faith and authority for our world and Christ’s Church at this time in history,” says Ligertwood and Cobbs Leonard.
“May His Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven, and may our worship and intercession pull that reality into this one:
“And when He moves and when we pray
Where stood a wall now stands a way
Where every promise is Amen”
