This past Sunday, our Vocal Team introduced a new congregational song, “Glorious Day.” Actually, it wasn’t brand new. Our students learned it at DiscipleNow a few weeks ago. We are taking a cue from them and will be singing this song through Easter. The words of this song express the situations out of which God has saved and continues to save His people…
I was buried beneath my shame
Who could carry that kind of weight?
I was breathing but not alive
All my failures I tried to hide
It was my tomb 'til I met You
You called my name, and I ran out of that grave
Out of the darkness into Your glorious day
I needed rescue, my sin was heavy
But chains break at the weight of Your glory
I needed shelter, I was an orphan
Now You call me a citizen of Heaven
Yes, I know that many of you, like me, know how it feels to be buried in shame, weighted down with sin, only half alive, trying to hide failure from others. It feels like a dark, miserable tomb. But, when we sense God’s voice, calling us to experience life, we have responded not by walking, but by running to Him! Why? Because, He rescues us, breaks our chains, gives us shelter, and reminds us that our identity is found in Him, not in anything of this world. May God continue to form our spirits and transform our minds through the singing of Biblical truth.
If you want to learn “Glorious Day,” or just listen to the songs that we regularly sing in worship, you can access our YouTube and Spotify playlists from the Worship-Arts Ministry page of our website.
