about as sick as a blind man winning a knife fight

A Hardcore Worship Epic

2 min read

Inspired by Philippians 3:12-14, “Splendour” is a call to press on through the pain and darkness we all must endure throughout this life. “The Splendour” resembles God’s glory as something to be pursued whole-heartedly while rejecting the fleeting and empty promises of the corrupt man-made systems that ruthlessly demand our conformity. We are beckoned to yield our awe and devotion to the King who will one day make all things right and give meaning to our present suffering.

lyrics

“Onward, Forward, Leave behind, Your anguish
Racing, Reaching, Gaze upon, The Splendour”

What sting is this that comes to afflict me, The skies fume red with fury
Armies of Heaven fall, He wages war to save me and brings my soul to glory
For in these sufferings, He walks in great abundance ever so near among us

Behold, The one, Who calls, In fury, (In fury)

“Onward, Forward, Leave behind, Your anguish
Racing, Reaching, Gaze upon, The Splendour”

But with heart entrenched in mire, Darkness beckons my heart to slumber
Still you lay waste to the void, What trial has yet to halt my God

Does He yet shake the mountains, Does He still roar the seas
The God of shepherds and lilies, Yet still has eyes for me

Where is the plain God’s hand cannot extend, Where is this depth that God cannot descend
Forever the victor of the age

Oh, what great a captor whom I belong, Who stole me in great love
In grace confining, Adonai, You are for me

Behold the king, mighty in wonder, His presence fills my downcast soul,
His arm is reaching, ever so longing. Glory!
Behold the king, He comes now! He searches the earth to know my name
He is the Lord, All majesty defined, Glory to the King, Glory to the King, Amen

“Onward, Forward, Leave behind, Your anguish
Racing, Reaching, Gaze upon, The Splendour”

Forevermore
