"...a great multitude, which no man could number,
of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne...".
This profound verse inspired our 6th project, All Nations Shall Worship.
In the title track, the Jewish shofar calls forth worship from the ends of
the earth: Irish Celtic pipes from the north, African drums from the south,
Latin American percussion from the west, and Indian sitars from the east.
All the voices join together in a powerful final chorus.
Throughout, we use colorful and authentic musical styles from the Middle East,
China, Java, America, India and Africa. One of our favorites is
"The Beatitudes" from Matthew 5, featuring a traditional American ensemble
with picccolo, dulcimer, and harp. Beautifully sung by our kids' ensemble, this is
one of our "greatest hits". The encouraging Psalm 91 ends the recording with a
lively mix of energetic drumming and orchestral instruments.
These 11 unique Scripture memory songs are recommended for ages 10 and up, but, like all our recordings,
All Nations will be enjoyed by the whole family. Instrumental-only tracks are included for memory practice and performance.
Bible versions used: NAS, KJV, NKJV.

"I just finished listening to All Nations Shall Worship. I think you have produced another great product. I believe you have a very nice balance of Eastern sounds (to link to our course of studies), and music we all are more familiar with. I really like the one “fun” song you add (Go To The Ant), and your rendition of Psalm 91 brought tears to my eyes. Your team gets better and better at really clearly presenting the words, and musically, you continue with interesting and beautiful sounds. And I greatly appreciate the references linked to the songs.
Thanks again for your great service to kids everywhere to help them “hide God’s Word in their hearts.” I don’t think we ever forget the songs we sing! Keep up the good work! Blessings on you and yours, Sarita."

"The All Nations CD is one of my absolute favorite CDs. I am a wife, mother, and elementary school teacher, and my experiences lead me to believe that this CD will appeal to adults and teens, as well as young children. I like the Scripture choices and the melodies, which are inspirational, and a perfect vehicle to transport the Word of God. The melodies and rhythms are unique and memorable, and each song reflects the musical influence of a different culture. The vocals are delightfully crisp and clear. This CD incorporates an interesting variety of instruments as well.
For me, All Nations fills the quiet time driving to and from work. I also use it to meditate on the Word, and it adds an element of peace and calm to my working environment. For children, the CD is a wonderful tool for teaching and memorizing Scripture. It provides a good opportunity for parents and children to discuss Bible stories and biblical truths. The CD is excellent for children to listen to during sleep time and play time. There is a great musical benefit for children as they sing the melodies along with the vocalists on the CD. And…a funny thing is when you’re not at all thinking about God’s Word…maybe at the super market, or your teen is drying her hair, or your little one is playing with blocks, don’t be surprised if each of you begins humming an All Nations’ melody and continues by singing the scripture….we have!
