about

Two thousand years ago, God came as a man to suffer with humanity. He is coming again. This time, He will not come to suffer but will come to end all suffering. Abortion. Human trafficking. Debilitating sickness. Despairing poverty. He will go forth as the Mighty Warrior. He will stir up His zeal like a mighty man of war. He will destroy every injustice.

Mighty Warrior is the first release of International House of Prayer Nightwatch singer/worship leader Jonathan Baldwin. His journey of pursuing God's heart for justice began on a prayer journey in 2004 with Lou Engle and seventy others fighting for the lives of unborn babies. Led by a prophetic dream, they stood in silent prayer in front of the US Supreme Court with red tape over their mouths that said LIFE.

The album begins with a stirring plea to the church to rise up and fight abortion in “Where is the Moral Outcry?” featuring Jaye Thomas singing background vocals and Lou Engle praying. From there, “Mighty Warrior” is a prophetic declaration of God's zeal to bring justice to the earth. As you listen to “You Have Shown Me Mercy”, you will find yourself singing of God's gracious redemption. The moving vocals of Nightwatch singer Emily Bisinger combine with the passionate delivery of Jonathan Baldwin in “Something to Live For, Something to Die For” leaving you longing for more of Jesus. Are you someone who is waiting for an answer to your prayers? “Your God Will Come” and the soothing “Healing Selah” with the blended sounds of violin, cello, penny whistle, and Luke Hendrickson’s piano is a soaking song for those who are waiting for healing. The album ends with “Voiceless” and “Hold Me” featuring Isaac Meyer’s skillful acoustic guitar work and soaring string arrangements. “Voiceless” is a cry for the unborn that God will hear their voices even in their silence. Finally, you will experience the Father’s embrace as you listen to “Hold Me”, a prayer for Father God to hold us close through our most difficult times in life.

Track Name: Where is the Moral Outcry?
WHEREISTHEMORALOUTCRY?
Amos 5:23-24
Where is the moral outcry?
Rise up church, rise up church!
You’ve been sleeping for way too long now Smoke’s rising from a holocaust
It’s time to let your voices be heard
Let justice roll down like mighty waters
Let righteousness burst forth like an everlasting stream
And How long will you sit in silence? Can’t you hear their cries for help?
Will you close your ears and sing louder?
Even now God says,
“Take away from me the noise of your songs!
Give me righteousness and justice
I just want righteousness and justice”
Let justice roll down like mighty waters
Let righteousness burst forth like an everlasting stream
Even now, even now, let your song come forth Let your cry ring out, change history
Track Name: Mighty Warrior
MIGHTY WARRIOR
Isaiah 42:1-14

Behold My Servant, behold My Servant Behold My Servant, Whom I uphold
My Chosen One in Whom My soul delights
I have placed My Spirit upon Him
He will bring forth justice to all the nations He will arise

The Lord will go forth like a mighty warrior
He’ll stir up His zeal like a mighty man of war
He’ll raise a war cry; He’ll raise a war cry
And He will prevail against His enemies

With tender mercies and Your love
You’ll affirm those who are weak
Even the flames that are barely flames at all
You will not quench

The Lord says,
“I have kept silent for a long, long time
I have stilled and restrained myself
Now like a woman in labor
I will both gasp and groan.”

You will not grow faint or be discouraged Until You’ve established justice on the earth
Track Name: You Have Shown Me Mercy
YOU HAVE SHOWN ME MERCY
Romans 8:10, James 2:13

I would have never known
Communion unless You had come
To shed Your blood
When You died upon the cross

You have shown me mercy
You have shown me mercy

I was dead in my sin
And You came and rescued me
That’s why I’ll say:

Thank you Jesus, for the cross

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
Mercy triumphs over judgment
Track Name: Something to Live For, Something to Die For
SOMETHING TO LIVE FOR, SOMETHING TO DIE FOR
Revelation 6:9-11, Psalm 27:4

Open up my heart to draw near to You, oh God
Open up my eyes let me behold Your beauty
Come and take me in
Won’t You come and take me in
Come and take me in to Your fire
To Your fire

Something to live for
Something to die for
Something to live for

Give me reality, give me eternity, Oh Lord
Give me reality...
Give me Jesus, I want Jesus

At the end of the day, at the end of my life
At the end of the day, all I want is love
Track Name: Your God Will Come
YOUR GOD WILL COME
Isaiah 35:4-6

Say to those with an anxious heart,
“Behold, Your God will come to you.”

With vengeance and mighty power
He’ll come right in time
The dealing of God will come
He’ll come right in time (And He will rescue you!)

Then the eyes of the blind will be opened
And the ears of the deaf will hear again
Then the legs with no might will be strengthened
And the tongue of the mute will shout for joy!

So, do not be afraid

For waters will break forth in the wilderness
And streams will flow through the desert
Track Name: Voiceless
VOICELESS
Psalm 18:4-5,16-19
Can you hear the sound of Heaven? It’s breaking into the earth
It’s falling down like rain
Their voices and their cries
Their desire to live

And their voices will be heard in their silence

The cords of death encompassed them
The snares of death surrounded them
But He’ll send from on high
He’ll take them and He’ll draw them out of many waters And He’ll rescue them, because He delights in them

And their voices will be heard in our silence
Track Name: Hold Me
HOLD ME
Deuteronomy 33:27, Psalm 32:7, 90:1, Song of Songs 2:6, 2 Timothy 4:6-8, I Corinthians 13:12, Revelation 1:14, 21:4

There is a day
When sorrow and sighing will flee away
There is a day
When You will wipe all my tears away
But until that day
When I see You face to face

Father, hold me
Father, hold me
Father, hold me, in Your arms

When all is said and all is done
When I stand before You and my race is run
I’ll look into Your eyes and say,
When I stand before Your glory and your grace,

Daddy, hold me
Daddy, hold me
Daddy, hold me, in Your arms
