Petra - Somebody's Gonna Praise His Name Lyrics

[Based on Luke 19:40, Psalm 69:34, 148:9]

Somebody's gonna praise His name
Somebody's gonna call Him Lord
It'll either be you and me
Or it's gonna be a rock or tree
Somebody, somewhere is gonna praise His name

Jesus said that it couldn't be stopped
Jesus said that it had to be heard
His creation will praise Him
Jesus said we could be assured
If we all maintain our silence
Even stones will cry out so loud
His creation will praise Him
All alone or in a crowd
In the end every tongue will confess
Every knee will eventually bow
His creation will praise Him
It's so easy to go for it now

And it's gonna be me
It's gonna be me
Somebody's gonna praise Him
And it's gonna be me

Lord I lift my voice to You
And I magnify Your name
You are Alpha and Omega
You are everyday the same
As long as I draw breath my lips will praise You
As long as I have strength I want to praise Your name

  9. Barry Pierce

    The first time I heard this song I was energized to lift up my head and heart and praise my awesome Lord. No different today -- or a thousand years from now! -- Worthy is my Lord!

  10. Anthony Sandoval

    One of the best "Petra" songs

  11. Eduardo Rocha

    Petra Means Rock

  12. Peter J. Chiozza

    ... weniger motzen, nörgeln, kritisieren - mehr loben, anerkennen, bestätigen: "loben zieht nach oben, danken schützt vor wanken"

  13. Geoffrey Rudd

    His creation, we praise him.

  14. John Q. Public

  22. Steve The Man האיש

    This is a true Christian band. I feel Gods Holy Spirit when I listen to this song.

    Julie Hodes

    I know right

    Seth Merritt

    I agree but you missed an apostrophe in the word God's. You wrote "Gods" when you should have written "God's". Don't forget to use proper grammar (to the best of your abilities that is. It would be hard to use proper grammar 24/7.)! Also I'm not being mean just pointing out a flaw you made for the whole world to see and kind of mocking you for it. Don't take it personally. It's just a mistake YOU made being blown WAY out of proportion. The rest of the comment was good though. Good job Steve! You're the man!

  23. ilovemusic R

    I'm gonna praise His Name!!! 2018

  28. sol solecita

    ellos son el único grupo de habla inglesa que conozco que cantan alabanzas al señor Jesucristo tal cual, sin disfrazar la letra.
    cosa rara hoy día. ni siquiera stryper .
    bendiciones a todos los integrantes de esta banda. Dios los bendiga.

  29. meljpetra

  34. Church of Steven

    I want everybody to know this song is about Lord Steven Christ.



    Church of Steven

    @WalkinwithJesusChrist2 Jesus Christ died.
    Long live the Steven!

    Amanda Moore

    Church of Steven Jesus is LORD and He won't be mocked.... soon every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord... that includes you... It would be wise for you to trust Christ today and not wait until you are standing before Him in judgement.... humble yourself before God and Call upon Jesus before it's too late... you might think it's all a joke now but trust that you will know it's not a joke on judgement day... you'll spend all of eternity in the literal hell wishing that you would have accepted God's free gift of Salvation through Jesus Christ... you'll desire to know him then and you will not be able to....God is not willing that any should perish but that all would come to repentance... that includes you He love you more than you could ever know that is why He sent his son to die for you so that you could be saved and become his child....all manners of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven except blasphemy of the Holy Spirit... you can be forgiven for all of your sins and foolishness if you would humbly turn to Christ

    Church of Steven

    +Markreality This song is Lord Steven Christ.

  36. Taylor Crawford

    So, if anyone here believs in evolution, and people coming from monkeys, where would the monkeys come from???

    Monkeys were named by Adam, and the monkeys were CREATED by God.


    @Church of Steven Maybe; is Steven Lord's number publicly available in the phone-book?


    @Church of Steven Maybe; is Steven Lord's number publicly available in the white pages?


    Humans evolved from hominids, who evolved from apes, who evolved from Proto monkeys, who evolved from large rodents. Your question seems to be veiled in proud ignorance. Maybe instead of asking random people on the internet for answers, you should ask an evolutionary biologists who could explain the process and the evidence much better than I can. We weren't made out of dirt.


    @Kim Clayton What would explain more is your seeming inability to do any research for yourself. Why don't you read the articles linked here and come back when you've refuted them?

    Arthur Phillips

    Who are you trying to convince? Christians already agree and confirmed evolutionist will never be convinced by argument. Advice, focus on Jesus!

  37. liquidnature13

    Glory to the King of Kings!!!!!!!

  38. Jim Thompson

    if you would be so kind.

  39. Jim Thompson

    Church of Steven

    +manof steele Thank you.

    you and me 🎶

  41. 1927Norma

    This is one of the Christian claiming bands that really kept it up in lyric content and largely lived it too. Now that is a rarety........all sinners admittedly but their lyrics were biblically accurate.


    @redtigersj I completely agree with you.  :) 

    Taylor Crawford

    Theprayer777! Yes, it is a shame!

    Church of Steven

    +1927Norma Lord Steven Christ Rules!

    Arthur Phillips

    Boy did you peg it. You said exactly what I was going to write!

    John Stewart


  42. Beti Adams

    i love this song but no all rocks

  43. Steven Whitehouse

    depends on what type of music you listen to Spencer. Some songs dont edify people.

  44. Steven Whitehouse

    Well Unknownpetra fan, There's another song that goes with that. If they are gonna call us fools for believing in Jesus Christ. As the old saying goes. I rather be a fool for Jesus! if that what it takes to win souls to Jesus Christ!!

  45. Spencer Deforest

    Metal and Rock is not a sin! I am a Christian and I listen to nothing but metal and rock. This is some amazing, catchy, and really great Christian Hard Rock!!!!

    Martin Boomhower

    Have you checked out Seventh Angel, It's just as good as any metal ever ,both secular and Christian. Lament for the weary, The Torment, Dust of Years. God bless you my Brother with no mother.

  46. Jeremy T

    Best Petra song.

  50. jaxforjesus

    i am going to praise the Lord! its what i was created to do!! and i sure enjoy it :-)

  51. David Truckerzz

    My favourite song of all time!!!

  52. Danny McKinney

    Silence the tongues so we can live as instruments in harmony.... We are your children in this world, so we lift our rebellion spirit up to you, so the devil doesn't mock Man. Man is never allowed to be mocked.

  53. Triple MVP legend

    Luke 19:40, " I (Jesus) you, if these people were to keep silent, the stones, would
    immediately cry out".

  54. Triple MVP legend

    " YOU are Holy, enthroned (on) the praises of Israel." Psalm 47: " GOD is gone
    up with a (shout), the LORD with sound of a Trumpet, Sing Praises to God, Sing Praises."
    Luke19: " if these should (keep silent), the Rocks) would immediately (cry) out."

  55. Triple MVP legend

    The LORD Says: " He honors those who honor HIM, & those who
    despise HIM, shall be lightly esteemed." King David says: " Praise the LORD!", also," The
    LORD'S Name is to be Praised." HE Created us, along with (all) things, & HE is Worthy of All

    of our Praise and Worship. Whoever is ashamed of Him in this sinful and adulterous generation, of him the Lord will be ashamed of them. We will make THE LORD Proud, we (will) Praise HIM.!

  56. Cheryl Goodwin

  64. Capt_Gunzou

    @UnknownPetraFan Same here pal, I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of men, than in the eyes of God & Jesus.

  65. Michele Hansen Wurzer

    I guarantee it's true. In fact...I would be my own life on it. He has proven Himself to me time and time again over the past 49 years. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that He exists and is who He says He is. All you have to do is ask Him. He'll answer you if you seriously want Him to. He doesn't play mind games. And He won't be mocked or goaded into playing them with you either.

  66. apk1215

    @travelerintime11 Such a question can't conceivably be answered in a tiny 133rd-rate forum such as this one,Traveler. Think about it - it's just too complex a question.

    If you really wish to know, repeatedly ask your creator,with total faith and patience,about who he is. Then do the research - it may take weeks,it may take months,it may take years. (Personally, it took me several months of extremely intense & laborious research to find satisfactory evidence to believe the Bible.)

  67. jesse dunmire

    who doesnt guarantee it son?

  68. Seriva

    Whoever says that Odin isn't the true god is a DAMNED FOOL. OPEN YOUR EYES BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE. RAGNAROK IS NIGH.

  81. Brian Howden

    good song, good band. My friends think it is wierd that I like PETRA because my beleifs or more of a Buddhist bent.

    Barry Pierce

    Perhaps the Holy Spirit at work there, Brian. Few songs contain more Biblical content that those of Petra. Spirit-filled.
