I recently released a new album (acoustic chronicles) and wanted to give everyone a breakdown of what these songs mean. They are all very deep and biblical so I wanted to make sure and explain them so I have a place for anyone who wants to know all the meaning behind them. Most of the lyrics are old hymns that I revamped to fit my melodies. But this is one of the songs I had the pleasure of writing the lyrics to with some friends of mine. Here they are in full.
By His Offering
In the beginning, God created all
Man sinned and lost hope, darkness in our soul
We can not rebuild, what we have broken down
So God in all mercies smashed His Son to the ground
By His offering, we’ve been set free
It starts with Jesus, the Word of God released
Destined to suffer, the Fathers wrath appeased
God thee incarnate, Son of God was He
Lamb to the slaughter, set the captives free
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Three and yet One, perfect God
Father is awesome, Son who is worthy, Spirit who’s holy, perfect God
When we set out to write a new song, my friends and I thought, “What better topic to write about than the gospel?” Jesus, “God”, come into human flesh and save those who would love and believe in Him. Those whom He has chosen in fact. So, we wrote a Gospel song. The first verse focuses on the reality of our depravity. We have fallen short of God’s glory and there’s nothing we can do to reconcile us to God. The chorus focuses on the fact that Christ alone has saved His people from their sins. The second verse is a simple verse that glorifies Christ for His sacrifice for sinners. The bridge glorifies the Trinity in the fact that they are all One and yet distinct.
