“This is Jesus” Jordan Smith Official Music Video - Christian Music Videos

Words like joy, happiness, and love come to mind when watching the new “This Is Jesus” official music video by Jordan Smith. And, well, those are among three of the best adjectives there are to define and describe our Savior!

Recorded in the streets of Dallas, Texas, the video features approximately a dozen individuals of different races, ethnicities, ages, and backgrounds as they sing, dance, and praise in a variety of cityscapes. 

While often, God’s creation is on display in Christian music videos—snow-capped mountains, gorgeous golden wheat fields, shimmering and sunlit waterfalls—Jordan’s video puts God’s children against muraled city walls, on busy streets and under concrete overpasses. But these folks aren’t hurried or frustrated; they are rejoicing!

“This is Jesus” is a celebratory song! The lyrics refer to a few of Jesus’s everyday actions, like healing the blind, offering freedom from our chains, and giving peace in our pain. These are dance-worthy deeds, and Jordan and crew know that!

The chorus goes as follows:

Lift your eyes, raise your voice to the King of all creation 
He is love, He is life; This is Jesus 
Gather every nation like a billion streams of light 
‘Til every heart, every soul can feel Him reach us 

The song was written by McKay Crockett, Tyler Castleton, and Staci Peters. McKay says of the video, “I love how the song and music video personifies the universality of Jesus. He is for every person, from every walk of life.”

Jordan Smith was just 22 years old in 2015 when he competed on The Voice. All four judges turned their chairs for Jordan, but he joined Adam Levine’s team and won the entire season! 

Jordan’s been busy since then recording and writing music, and he’ll be on tour soon, visiting other big cities with other big-name artists, including Michael W. Smith, Steven Curtis Chapman, and Jordin Sparks. We’re betting those will be joy, happiness, and love-filled shows!
