When God Pulls a Fast One

May 27, 2009

Every once in a while, I’ll receive the music for a worship service, and a certain song will strike me as, well, boring.  Either lyrically or musically, I’m just not impressed, and I don’t look forward to playing it.  Well, these are usually the songs God uses to break me, and give me an intimate encounter with Him.  This weekend that song was the Hillsong song “Glory.”  By the time the weekend rolled around, the simplicity and beauty of the song had overwhelmed me, and I was lost in it, eyes closed, voice blaring, during the run-through.  Here are some of the lyrics:

Great is the Lord God Almighty                                                                                                                                                                            Great is the Lord on high                                                                                                                                                                                          The train of His robe fills the temple                                                                                                                                                                    And we cry out highest praise

Glory to the Risen King                                                                                                                                                                                          Glory to the Son                                                                                                                                                                                                  Glorious Son

Lift up your heads, open the doors                                                                                                                                                                       Let the King of Glory come in And forever be our God

Simple, right?  The beauty of their simplicity is what strikes me.  They reiterate such a simple truth, yet that truth wrecks me.  I think that’s a good place to be.
