This song has become a praise staple in many churches, and is based heavily around Zephaniah 3:17:
However, there are so many other verses that are alluded to in these lyrics, more than I ever realized! Once again I’ve linked most of the verses to the ESV version, but some of the lyrics more closely follow either the NASB or NIV version, so I’ve linked those as they apply.
I’ve featured a lyric video of this song by Laura Story, in part because I think this video was so beautifully done, but Hillsong United also has a wonderful version (see that here).
Happy Sunday!! We sang this song this morning at my church (The Midtown Bridge Church, Atlanta, GA) and I loved it! So simple but I just love when we are singing the same Scriptures we are studying (still in our Matthew 6 study entitled “Rhythm”).
I’ve added the obvious Scriptures from the Lord’s Prayer, but also found a few other references tied into that passage that I wasn’t as familiar with. I love seeing how the Old & New Testament ties together!
For those of you who think of the Lord’s Prayer as a stuffy, boring passage, I hope you enjoy this! And be prepared to WAKE UP!
