Behold, I Make All Things New

Behold, I Make All Things New

a setting of liturgy by Ben Splichal Larson


Ben’s intention is that the music he wrote to the ancient worship language of the church be a catalyst for renewal, hope, and faith for people and congregations.


Behold, I Make All Things New appeals to all generations and is being sung in both large and small congregations, as well as campus ministries.


Behold, I Make All Things New is used for “traditional” worship with organ or piano, and also is used for “contemporary” worship utilizing a wide variety of instruments from piano, organ, guitar, drums, bass, mandolin, violin, other C instruments, etc. in large ensembles or small. This liturgy is meant for whatever instrumentation a congregation has, and is meant to be sung freely.


Thank you to Cory Clay for transcribing Ben’s music, to Daniel Grainger for editing this Assembly Edition, to Augsburg Fortress for allowance of the use of liturgical texts, to Wild Sound Studios in Minneapolis for the mixed and mastered recordings, to Niki Mosier for designing and maintaining the website:
