"Greater Is He" is the first single from Sixteen Cities' upcoming worship album, expected to release this summer (2014). The song is now available on iTunes, with an Official Lyric Video on YouTube. This song represents Sixteen Cities' current focus on leading the church in authentic and passionate worship. All of the new songs being released from the band are entirely rooted in Scripture. "Greater Is He" comes from 1 John 4:4: "You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world" (NASB).
"Greater Is He" was written by lead singer Josiah Warneking and songwriter Jonathan Lee. The song was produced in Nashville, TN by Rusty Varenkamp and Sixteen Cities. The song is published by Centric Worship (a division of Centricity Music).
"We are excited to release songs - and an album - that serve as a resource to the church and represent our greatest passion: to worship God with everything we have", says lead singer Josiah Warneking. The band is turning their attention to what they believe was their initial and primary calling; to be worshippers. "Our goal is not to grow the fame of Sixteen Cities, but to place Jesus on the throne and lead others to Him" - Josiah Warneking.
The next song to be released is "Once For All", and will be available the week before Easter.read more
