A modern Thai worship style song.
This song declares the power of the name of Jesus. It was composed in a modern Thai worship style as a song of trust in God and demonstrates a quiet confidence expressed by these Thai believers who live among a mainly Buddhist population and for whom it is not always socially acceptable to put one's faith in Jesus.
WEC field leader Malcolm Gray noticed the power of this faith-inspiring Thai worship song, which prompted him to translate this into English. English-language worshippers have readily embraced it. In this version, the Asian origin is emphasized through sounds such as the Chinese erhu and hulusi (emulating the Thai so duang), the Thai ching and the ranaat xylophone. The middle instrumental section uses typical features of the 'Thai Classic' style.
