Joseph Espinoza, Lebron Arnwine, Ana Nobrega, and Evelyn Cortazio got to meet and write together at a REVERE spiritual formation retreat focusing on Portuguese and English songs. As they had never met before, the group started by sharing their testimonies and were so stirred by what God had done for each of them that they penned a song focused on encouraging the Church to exclaim praise to the Lord.
‘Bless His Name‘ reminds us of the Lord’s wonderful acts, from the Old Testament to Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. This song invites us to ‘Bless His Name‘ and “proclaim his fame with every breath” with a celebratory “undignified spirit of David” type of arrangement, Joseph Espinoza notes. REVERE’s English unscripted version of ‘Bless His Name‘ starts off with a drum loop evolving on a piano melody and strong vocals from Joseph, capturing the raw spirit of praise of that moment.
