LifeWay Songwriter of the Year Shelly E. Johnson Releases ‘Your Kingdom Come’

September 16, 2014

From Shelly E. Johnson, the writer of “Power of the Cross,” comes the long-awaited album ‘Your Kingdom Come’ featuring new anthems of worship for His Church. ‘Your Kingdom Come’ is released by LifeWay Worship in partnership with Elevate Entertainment and Sytnax Creative is available in stores and online September 23.

“I truly believe God inspired me to write the songs on this album for such a time as this,” said Johnson. “We are living in a unique time in history, and our culture is influencing the Church in many ways, both positive and negative. Throughout my travels and work in the local church, my eyes have been opened to some of the issues that are challenging our churches today. It breaks my heart to see the division these challenges are causing among the body of Christ. God has used this to fuel a renewed passion in me to encourage unity and oneness among His people.”

Featuring worship-filled ballads and uplifting lyrics, ‘Your Kingdom Come’ includes 12 fresh tracks penned by Johnson, Sean Hill, and Jason Dyba. The album is produced by Michael Farren.

“This album is a turning point in my life and ministry, and in many ways, has become the catalyst for the new work God is stirring in my heart,” added Johnson. “My prayer is that these songs would spark courage in the hearts of listeners and worshippers, so that we can all live and thrive in the hope and Truth of the Gospel.”
