Composed and recorded over a month, the Jubilee theme song arose out of a desire to create an easily singable, energetic, catchy anthem that reflects the joy and exuberance of Jesus Youth. The fusion of ethnic Indian rhythms and world music styles hark to the origins of the movement while signaling its international flavour.

Besides being centred on the theme 'Refined-Renewed-Radiant', the song attempts to capture the spirit of the awesome coming together of Jesus Youth during the Jubilee, the centrality of Jesus in the movement and the eventful journey over the last 25 years. It draws some of its essential ideas from the 43rd & 60th chapters of the book of Isaiah.

Lyrics

We hear the sound of a multitude rising
Deep down within there’s a new song arising
The time is now
Sing out your joy
Renewed in the Spirit we’re breaking all borders
Refined in the fire we’re reaching out higher
The time is now
Sing out your joy

We sing together
Jesus is King
Our sole life giver
To you we cling
Come reign forever
Praises we bring
And sing for Joy
Radiant in love

We are the people, anointed and chosen
(Jubilee…)
We are the prophets, a new generation
A righteous and holy nation sounding his praise

(Forever and ever and ever He reigns on high...)
He is the maker the Lord of creation
(Jubilee…)
His resurrection is our celebration
And now filled with his power and grace
Refined, Renewed, In Him
Shine Out!

Out of the formless you fashioned creation
And out of the void you have made us a nation
The time is now
Sing out your Joy
Down through the valleys of sorrow and darkness
You journey beside us and lead us to brightness
The time is now
Sing out your Joy
