"Voice of God" by Dante Bowe

Dante Bowe has been featured with Bethel Music as well as Maverick City Music. His deeper voice has the passion of a black Gospel artist and the slight gravel of an alternative/grunge singer. A recent single is "Voice of God," featuring Steffany Gretzinger and Chandler Moore. It would work well for a church offertory. Lyrics below:


I can hear it in the crackle of a bonfire And I can hear it in the middle of the ocean water Oh, I just can’t explain But it makes me wanna cry And I can hear it when the rain falls on my windowsill On a playground where children’s laughter lives Oh, I can’t explain But it makes me wanna cry And I can hear it in the busy New York city streets And I can hear it in the country Georgia fields of green Oh, I can’t explain, no But it makes me wanna cry


It sounds like grand-momma, telling you where you come from Said it’s kinda like laughter, out of the mouths of your loved ones Or catching up with an old friend, reminiscing on back when It’s like a summertime sprinkler, street side with my ice cream cone Said it sounds like a choir, singing hymns, hallelujah It’s the voice of God, yeah It can make a grown man cry


And I can hear it on the wind of an early morning, haha When the fog is getting thick and the birds are chirping Oh, it’s just something I can’t explain, no But it makes me wanna cry And I can hear it in the hush of a midnight hour When I’m alone in my room, if I’m going under Oh, I just can’t explain, no But it brings me back to life It’s like the sound of a newborn baby crying, yeah Like the final breath of a loved one passing Oh, it’s a beautiful thing, yeah ‘Cause it leads me to the light

It’s like a drive-through movie, small town with a big screen Like grilling out in the front yard, sometimes it’s the simple things Like storytelling with my grandpa, he was so easy to believe Like when the sun goes up, yeah, sometimes it’s better when the sun comes down ‘Cause there’s just something about the moonlight And it can make you feel alright Oh, it’s the voice of God And it can make a grown man cry Yes, it can, yes, it can It’s the voice of God It can make a grown man cry, mm

If you listen (Ooh-ooh) You will hear Him (Ooh-ooh) (Voice of God, it’s the voice of God) In the question (Ooh-ooh) He’s the answer (Ooh-ooh) (Voice of God, it’s the voice of God) Just like my daddy (Ooh-ooh) He always taught me (Ooh-ooh) (Voice of God) Yes it is (It’s the voice of God)

I remembered that day (Ooh-ooh) When He called my name (Ooh-ooh) Nothing was the same (Voice of God) Because of the voice, yeah (It’s the voice of God) And everything was changed (Ooh-ooh) I saw myself in a different way (Ooh-ooh) Because of (Voice of God) Yeah (It’s the voice of God) Before there were so many noises (Ooh-ooh) I made so many wrong choices listening to other voices (Ooh-ooh) (Voice of God) But now I hear (I hear) (It’s the voice of God) Hey! And He is still speaking (He is still speaking) (Ooh-ooh) He is still declaring (He’s still declaring) (Ooh-ooh) That He is the voice (Voice of God) (Voice)

Yeah (It’s the voice of God) Creation responds (Ooh-ooh) The wind still obeys (Ooh-ooh) The voice of God (Voice of God) Ohh yeah (It’s the voice of God) Ohh, oh-oh, voice of God, it’s the voice of God I’m so glad I hear it Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh Voice of God, (Still hear it), the voice of God


The voice that created The same voice that saved us Oh, no other sound so precious (So precious) So precious (So precious) The voice of God Listen, listen To the texture and the tone Listen, listen For the kindness, for the hope Listen, listen It’s the sound that leads you home It’s the voice of God (It’s the voice of God) Oh, that still small voice (Still small voice) The voice of God So precious (Ohh)


It’s holy, holy, holy (It is, it is, it is) It’s so holy, holy, holy (Holy, yeah, it is, it is, it is) (The voice, it’s the voice) So holy, holy, holy, ohh (There’s nothing else like it, nothing else can compare) It’s so holy, holy, holy (Yeah, nothing else) Oh, we cry It’s so holy, holy, holy Oh, we cry (It stands alone, it stands alone) Holy, holy, holy No other voice can compete No other voice can stand beside, it is Holy (Holy) holy (Holy) holy (Holy) It calms my fears (It calms my fears) It soothes my doubts (It soothes my doubts) His voice, His voice, His voice is holy Holy, holy, holy Holy, holy, holy (Holy, holy) (Holy) He is holy, holy, holy


The deaf ear still responds to that sound, of His voice The dead man still gets up from the ground, because of His voice Everything responds when He calls (Yes) Everything responds when He speaks (Everything, yeah) I come alive when He calls (Everything inside of me) I come alive when He speaks (Stands at attention) Everything stands at attention (Oh) Everything stands at attention (I stand at attention) Everything stands at attention (Every soul of my bone, yeah?) When my Father speaks When my Daddy speaks When my Healer speaks When my Savior speaks Everything stands at attention (I love the sound, I love the sound)

Oh-oh, oh-oh Voice of God, it’s the voice of God Singing Oh-oh, oh-oh Voice of God, it’s the voice of God Sing it again, say oh Oh-oh (You can hear it) Oh-oh (If you want to) Voice of God (If you want it, you got it) It’s the voice of God


You can hear His voice right now (Oh-oh) He’s not coming how He spoke to your mother (Oh-oh) He may not come how He spoke to your father (Voice of God) He wants a new thing (It’s the voice of God) He wants a new thing (Oh-oh, oh-oh) (Voice of God) May come differently this time (It’s the voice of God)

Time to sing oh Oh-oh (Oh-oh) oh (Oh-oh) Oh-oh-oh (Voice of God) Oh, oh yeah yeah yeah (It’s the voice of God) Oh
