In a time where worship songs mostly focus on our feelings and views towards God, few capture the very essence of who God is as well as Way Maker. Released back in 2020, Way Maker quickly became one of the biggest hits in the Contemporary Christian music world. The song was originally released by Nigerian songwriter and Pentecostal worship leader Sinach. Its powerful message would see the song top the US charts for both Christian airplay and church worship. Essentially, Way Maker is an anointed and inspiring song that brought hope to millions around the world during the pandemic. It glorifies God, describing why we praise him and our definition of what worship is. The chorus states the truths about the nature of God
Thanks to its massive success, several Christian artists have released covers of the song. This includes Leeland, Michael W. Smith, Darlene Zschech, Mandisa, and many others. Way Maker has been translated into countless languages and is sung all over the world. If there’s one thing we can take from all of this is that we are members of a global church. The widespread adoption of the song given that it’s from another culture represented a rare moment for the evangelical church. We can’t help but acknowledge the essence of this song.
