THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG

 .... any song that has the line "let the lion of Judah roar" and ends with a climactic, anthem declaration from the Lord's Prayer is sure to stir hearts in praise and in worship... and this one does. No disappointment here!

 

Yet, I can tell you, this is not formulaic, not contrived, nor trite; this song comes from a deep revelation of the majesty of Christ and from a true desire to acknowledge all that He is, all He has done and all that He's going to be. I guess we don't even know the half of it, and indeed won't, until we experience it first hand for ourselves in the glory of His presence. 

 

I love to sing this song, I really do...  lyrically and melodically my heart leaps out with the blessing and privilege of carrying this special moment in time. And yes, each time is special. It connects heaven and earth in joint worship and you cannot help but know that is certainly the case. So whether you listen quietly and join in with your spirit, or whether you take this to your congregation and sing it triumphantly and majestically creating your own moment in time, be assured in knowing that the angels will be joining you with holy passion before the throne of our great conquering King! 

 

This song has been sung in the nations, to the nations and is for the nations!!!
