This song was written by Dan Dean , and was recorded by Phillips, Craig & Dean… included on their album, Phillips, Craig & Dean.
Phillips, Craig and Dean (rendered as Phillips, Craig & Dean on albums) is a contemporary Christian music trio composed of pastors Randy Phillips, Shawn Craig, and Dan Dean.
In 1991, Randy Phillips went to several record companies with a solo album he had. StarSong, a Nashville-based company, urged him to form a male vocal group. He then called two friends who also happened to be pastors and had also recently made solo albums.
Since forming in 1991, the group has sold over two million units. They have also received 10 GMA Dove Award nominations, winning 4, including Praise and Worship Album of the Year in 2007, and Inspirational Album of the Year in 2010.
In 1992, they released their debut album, which peaked at #13 on the Christian albums chart.
I first heard this song while pastoring Plainview First Baptist Church. They were a group that bridged traditional sounds with a more contemporary feel… and their music became a part of many mainstream churches.
This song reminds us that of everything that happens in God’s creation, nothing pleases God more than when a lost soul trusts God – through Christ – for their salvation. And He will be listening to their songs of praise throughout all eternity.
Bible Reference… Psalm 75:1; Ephesians 1:5; Revelation 5:12
He loves to hear the wind sing as it whistles through the pines and mountain leaves.
And He love to hear the raindrops as they splash to the ground in a magic melody.
He smiles in sweet approval as the waves crash through the rocks in harmony.
And creation joins in unity to sing to Him majestic symphonies.
But His favorite song of all is the song of the redeemed,
when lost sinners now made clean lift their voices loud and strong.
When those purchased by His blood lift to Him a song of love,
there’s nothin’ more He’d rather hear nor so pleasin’ to His ear
as His favorite song of all.
And He loves to hear the angels as they sing, “Holy, holy is the Lamb!”
Heaven’s choirs in harmony lift up praises to the Great I Am.
But He lifts His hands for silence when the weakest saved by grace begins to sing.
And a million angels listen as a newborn soul sings, “I have been redeemed!” (CHORUS)
It’s not just melodies and harmonies that catches His attention;
it’s not just clever lines and phrases that causes Him to stop and listen.
But when anyone set free, washed and bought by Calvary, begins to sing… (CHORUS)
Holy, holy, holy is the Lamb! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
