"Shout to the Lord" is a worship anthem, written by singer/songwriter Darlene Zschech in 1993, published by Hillsong Music Australia.

It has also been covered by Don Moen, Rich Mullins, Matt Redman, Chris Tomlin, Michael W. Smith, Lincoln Brewster, John Tesh, Sandi Patty.

On 9 April 2008, "Shout to the Lord" was the closing song on Idol Gives Back, sung by the remaining eight contestants of American Idol and a gospel choir. The lyrics of the song were altered, changing the word "Jesus" to "Shepherd" in the first line,[1] without the approval of Zschech or Hillsong Church.[2] At the request of the song's publishers, the song was performed again at the opening of the next show the following night, this time using the original lyrics.[1] The studio version of the performance charted at number 43 in the Billboard Hot 100, based on digital download sales alone.

In 1998, the Brazilian band Diante do Trono, re-recorded "Shout to the Lord" twice in Portuguese as "Aclame ao Senhor".
