Brand New Worship Album “Great Awakening” Now Available Everywhere

I can’t believe it’s finally here!!! I can’t believe I am actually typing this post! I am beyond excited to announce that my long-awaited full-length worship album GREAT AWAKENING is now available everywhere! It has been over 7 years since I released a full length worship album, so needless to say, it is time. But what makes this album so special is that it was given to me in a way unlike any project I have ever done. This album was not a Shelly idea, as some past projects have been. This album was entirely God-breathed. 

Beginning in January 2021, the process of God pouring these songs out was like a download from Heaven, where He was showing me visions of Heaven, visions of His heart for His Church, for His Bride, and the lyrics were pouring out in such an avalanche I could barely type fast enough. Within a matter of weeks, God made it abundantly clear He was asking me to record a new worship album called Great Awakening

After everything the world endured in 2020, I knew God was up to something, and I began to pay attention and lean in to the voice of God like never before. This past year has been a process of God awakening my own heart to the Truth, on so many levels, and I have never been more excited to release an album.  I feel these songs in every fiber of my bones. I can’t listen to them without tears welling up in my eyes. I believe these songs are the soundtrack of what the world has endured these past two+ years, like seeds straight from the heart of the Father to be planted into the hearts of His children and His Church, for such a time and season as right now.

I am beyond grateful to my graphic designer, Kelly Morris (who also happens to be my best friend and soul sister), and who has a God-anointed gift for branding and design. She had a sense from early on that the branding for this album needed to be a picture of the Bride of Christ. That is precisely why I am wearing a wedding dress in what appears to be a garden. God is waking up His Church to returning to their First Love, in the Garden where it all began. He is cleaning out the Temple and raising up His true remnant of believers who love Him with a pure heart. Now more than ever, we desperately need a Great Awakening to sweep across the Earth, to break our hearts for what it really means to Love Jesus honestly, and to see God breathe on His Church with Holy Fire and birth within us the greatest revival of all time. 

I am also beyond grateful for my long-time friend and producer Sean Hill for the way he stewarded these songs, from the songwriting collaboration process all the way to delivering the final audio master. Sean has been a huge part of my music for the past decade, and this Great Awakening album marks the first full-length worship album he’s been able to sit at the helm in the producer seat. 

I am in awe of how all the pieces of this album have come together so perfectly and so divinely – from the songs, to the production, to the photos, to the branding, artwork & design, and ultimately the timing. The world has never been on fire like it is right now. We are not in a battle of flesh and blood, but a battle of dark vs. light, Truth vs. lies, good vs. evil, God vs. Satan.  We must choose a side. We can no longer be lukewarm. Our culture has completely lost its way, and it is our responsibility as His Church to shine His Light here on planet Earth.

To God be the glory!

Song Lyrics:
GREAT AWAKENING ALBUM
Words & Music by Shelly E. Johnson & Sean Hill

Verse 1
Let there be an awakening that sweeps across the Earth
A Holy Day of reckoning so justice can be served
Let the Truth ring loud and clear
Perfect Love replace all fear
Bring the Kingdom of Heaven here

Chorus
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Jesus Christ is King
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
The Great Awakening

Verse 2
Let there be an awakening that shakes us from our sleep
A radical unraveling that pulls us to our knees
Make the darkness run and hide
And be destroyed on every side
By the power of Heaven’s light

Chorus

Bridge

I see a world where every slave can dance in freedom
The King of Glory comes to save His stolen children
Where healing rushes in live waves through every nation
The Great Awakening!

Chorus (2x)

Ending
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! Our God reigns!
