Glory

Selah is my absolute most favorites group in the entire world. Their music is amazing and is done in such a spirit of worship that you can't help but praise God. Not because of their music necessarily, but because their music point to the Glory of God.

I am a lyrics kinda gal. I do prefer more mellow music, but if the lyrics are wishy washy and not theologically sound, I get side-tracked. Yep, I am THAT anal. Anyway...

Ed bought Selah's newest CD for me for my birthday the other week. It's called Bless the Broken Road. The third song on the CD is my favorite. I thought I'd share the lyrics here because they just deserve to be blasted everywhere. Again, not because fo the song or songwriter or anything, but because of WHO GOD IS.

Glory -- written by Nichole Nordeman

One day, eyes that are blind
will see You clearly
One day, all who deny will finally believe
One day hearts made of stone will
break in pieces
One day chains, once unbroken,
will fall down at your feet


So we wait
For that one day
Come quickly, we want to see your...

Chorus:
Glory
Every knee falls down before Thee
Every tongue offers you praise, with
every hand raised
Singing Glory
To You and unto You only
We'll sing Glory to your name

One day, voices that lie will all be
silenced
One day all that's divided will be
whole again
One day death will retreat, and
wave it's white flag
One day love will defeat the
strongest enemy

So we wait
For that one day
Come quickly, we want to see your...

Chorus:
Glory
Every knee falls down before Thee
Every tongue offers you praise, with
every hand raised
Singing Glory
To You and unto You only
We'll sing Glory to your name

repeat chorus
Bridge:
We know not the day or the hour,
or the moments in between
But we know the end of the
story... when we'll see your...

repeat chorus

***********

Can you imagine no more division in the universal church because we are all so caught up in God's glory? Can you imagine no more death or lies? Can you imagine what it will be like for those who don't know Him to finally realize how wrong they were -- or that no one cared enough to share the truth with them?

It makes me think of my family. If I had the ability, I'd save them and change them and "fix" them. I can't do that though, so... until they are changed, I'll wait to see God's glory in all it's splendor.

LOVE Selah. And I had no idea that Nichole Nordeman wrote that song...I've said before that I'm going to be able to write all pretty like her when I grow up. :-)
