Multi-GRAMMY® nominated artist, songwriter, and worship leader Cody Carnes has just released a new studio song, "Be Glad," available everywhere today. "Be Glad," co-written by Carnes, Chris Davenport, Steven Furtick, and Jason Ingram, was inspired directly from scripture, namely Psalm 118:24, 107:1 and Mark 5:19.
Carnes explains, "I love this song. It's straight scripture the whole way through. I pray it helps find the reasons to BE GLAD when it can be so easy to find a reason to be sad, mad, frustrated or anything else.
Psalm 118:24: This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 107:1: Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.
Mark 5:19: Go home to your friends and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how He has had mercy on you."
"'Be Glad' is a song straight from scripture and full of joy and praise," shares Cody Carnes about the inspiration behind this new track. "Psalm 118 says, This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and BE GLAD in it! There can be a lot of reasons to choose anything other than gladness. It's easy to find a reason to be sad, angry, frustrated, or hopeless. But the Bible says we have a reason to BE GLAD today. Jesus has saved us and redeemed us. His mercies were brand new when you woke up this morning. So put on some gladness and worship the Lord today! I hope this song helps you do that."
Carnes will be releasing his first-ever live-recorded album. Earlier this month, he was joined by his band and special guests Kari Jobe, Leeland, Natalie Grant, Benjamin Hastings, and David Leonard for a powerful two-night recording at Belonging Co. in Nashville for his upcoming release. More details will be announced soon on the forthcoming project.
