A Chinese Worship Song

"Lord, Give Me a Vision"

In March of 2014, over a thousand Christians from all over China attended the Grace to the City Convention held at Queen Elizabeth Stadium in Hong Kong. For two and a half days they listened to teaching by Tim Keller, as well as from urban house church leaders from various cities around China.

As is the case with any such conference, worship was also a central focus. Here is a video from the conference of the participants singing a popular Chinese Christian worship song called “Lord, Give Me a Vision.” It is posted here on the China Partnership channel.

It's a good example of the kind of contemporary Christian music that is being sung in China today.
