About the Artist

We Are Messengers

We are Messengers are fronted by Darren Mulligan, a single minded Irish man who writes rock n’ roll anthems and intimate earthly psalms for messy broken people. The goal has always been to engage culture in conversation about the goodness of God and to put words and melody to some of the hardest things we feel as humans. This is a band that understands and loves the outsiders, the marginalized, the lost and the least.

We Are Messengers have built a career, the old fashioned way, on the road touring relentlessly around the USA, Europe and beyond. They have had 11 consecutive top 10 radio singles including the multi chart #1 hit song “Come What May” and the Gold certified “Maybe Its OK’.

Collaboration has been a cornerstone of We Are Messengers distinctive sound. In 2020 country legend Vince Gill joined the band on a one take stripped back version of “Image of God” captured live and acoustic at Vince’s place. Features by Cory Asbury, Josh Baldwin, Naomi Raine of Maverick City and Christian Hip Hop legend KB have followed.

The Lyrics

“When the ground beneath my feet
Is shaking like a leaf
God You’re still good to me
When my hope is all but gone
And I’m barely hanging on
God You’re still good to me

When my heart can’t find the beat
When its dark and I can’t see
I will put my hope in You

I’ll trade ashes for beauty
I’ll trade joy for my mourning
I’ll trade to God be the glory
To God be the glory
I’ll trade strength for my weakness
I’ll trade pain for my healing
I’ll trade let this be my story
To God be the glory

You love me at my best
You love me in my mess
God You’re so good to me
There’s one thing I am sure
Your promises endure
You make a way for me

When my heart can’t find the beat
When its dark and I can’t see
I will put my hope in You

I’ll trade ashes for beauty
I’ll trade joy for my mourning
I’ll trade to God be the glory
To God be the glory
I’ll trade strength for my weakness
I’ll trade pain for my healing
I’ll trade let this be my story
To God be the glory
To God be the glory

And whatever comes my way
I will always praise Your name
I will put my hope in You
When I run into Your courts
I will fall into Your arms
I will sing a song of praise

I’ll trade ashes for beauty
I’ll trade joy for my mourning
I’ll trade to God be the glory (forever and ever)
To God be the glory
I’ll trade strength for my weakness
I’ll trade pain for my healing
I’ll trade let this be my story (forever and ever)
To God be the glory

I’ll trade ashes for beauty
I’ll trade joy for my mourning
I’ll trade to God be the glory
To God be the glory
I’ll trade strength for my weakness
I’ll trade pain for my healing
I’ll trade let this be my story
Let this be my story
To God be the glory”

Heart Behind “God Be The Glory”

“This is a song that reminds us that God is turning all of our mourning into laughter, all of our sorrow into joy, and He’s turning our feet toward dancing,” shares We Are Messengers frontman Darren Mulligan. “So whatever situation you find yourself in today — whether that be in great happiness or great sorrow — remember this, that God is working all things together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purposes, for His glory and our good.”
