This song had a funny beginning. I was listening to the radio when I thought I heard a guy singing, “Everything speaks her name.” I thought, “What a great title for a song!” It turns out, though, that he was singing, “Whenever I speak her name.”
I was thrilled when I learned the real title of the song, because that meant I could use, “Everything speaks His name.” And instead of a love song, I wrote it about Jesus – for all things truly testify of him. This is one of my first songs and I loved writing about how we can find God everywhere and in everything.

When I consider the rose that grows in winter, Or feel the rain upon my face, Or see the snow arranged like lace, I know Him better. When I discover a wild flower's color Or touch a single blade of grass Or hear a child laugh Then I am surer that Everything from the mountain to the stream From the valley to the sky; Everything, from the meadow to the sea From the sunlight to the rain Everything speaks His name. He watches over creations without number And yet, He lifts the sparrow's wing And dresses lilies in the spring He knows my name. He forms a dewdrop; His word commands the storm to stop He makes the eagle free to fly And paints a rainbow in the sky All for you and I. Everything from the mountain to the stream From the valley to the sky; Everything, from the meadow to the sea How could you not believe? When everything speaks His name. I cannot imagine it was all because of chance When everywhere around me lies the evidence Everything from the sunset to the stars From the ocean, to the shore; Everything from the mighty King To the tiny Babe Everything speaks His name.
