CCM EXCLUSIVE Video Premiere: Here Be Lions & Darlene Zschech — ‘I Speak Jesus’

Ministry collective and worship team Here Be Lions, led by pastor and worship leader Dustin Smith (“God Who Moves The Mountains,” “Miracles”), and world-renowned Australian worship leader, Darlene Zschech (“Victor’s Crown,” “In Jesus’ Name, “Shout To The Lord”), release new song, “I Speak Jesus.”

Originally debuted on the Here Be Lion’s EP, I Speak Jesus, the declarative title track anthem has been newly reimagined as a powerful male-female duet.

“The song came as easy as it sounds,” shares Smith in regards to the writing of the song.” Jesse Reeves prayed over us before we started writing and just said, ‘I just want to speak the name of Jesus over these people.’ That was it. The whole prayer. Nothing more. Nothing less. When we went to write I asked if we could write a song based on his prayer. He said, ‘all I did was say the name of Jesus.’ And that is all I want to say over my congregation, over my family, over my sickness, over depression and anxiety. All we needed was a melody because we already had the most powerful word…Jesus. There is mighty power in the name of Jesus.”

The song’s new rendition follows an exciting season for both Darlene and Here Be Lions, as Dustin and his wife Jeanna recently launched HopeUC Nashville, a greater vision of Darlene Zschech’s Hope Unlimited Church (Hope UC) in New South Wales, Australia. Now with churches in 11 major cities throughout Australia, India and the United States, Hope UC continues to shout the resounding truth and freedom that hope is a person, and His name is Jesus.

“I Speak Jesus” Lyrics:
I just want to speak the Name of Jesus
Over every heart and every mind
I know there is peace within Your presence
I speak Jesus

I just want to speak the Name of Jesus
‘Til every dark addiction starts to break
Declaring there is hope and there is freedom
I speak Jesus

Your name is power
Your name is healing
Your name is life
Break every stronghold
Shine through the shadows
Burn like a fire

I just want to speak the Name of Jesus
Over fear and all anxiety
To every soul held captive by depression
I speak Jesus

Shout Jesus from the mountains
And Jesus in the streets
Jesus in the darkness over every enemy
Jesus for my family
I speak the holy Name
