Leslie Jordan’s name has become synonymous with meaningful and groundbreaking worship music. The Nashville-based singer-songwriter and worship leader unveils new songs, starting with “Great I Am,” last week. The official lyric video can be viewed below starting today (June 16). The song welcomes listeners into her space – where songs become companions to those who embrace them. It’s the first release from Jordan’s upcoming project, All I Need To Know, coming July 22.
“Great I Am” offers a sound of peaceful folk, where soft songs and strong messages are carried by Jordan’s clean and warm vocals. The song was initially written in 2019 in YWAM Kona, Hawaii when she collaborated with YWAM’s local team to craft songs for their community. After appearing on YWAM Kona Music’s 2021 live album, “Great I Am” transcended its missionary context and stuck to Jordan for its simplicity and the way it reflects who God is, not just His greatness but His nature too.
With this new version of “Great I Am,” Jordan hopes to serve more people, sharing, “I believe in songs for the church because the church isn’t only on Sunday morning and Wednesday night. I think it’s in the car with your kids. I think it’s at a funeral for someone that you’ve lost that you love deeply. I think it’s at the top of a mountain that you’ve climbed or in the valley you’ve laid down in.”
“Great I Am” marks a new beginning for Leslie Jordan, not only musically but as an inspirational figure in the worship sphere.
