07. Rejoice with Trembling

Where Angels Fear To Tread
by Matt Redman



 

We could watch you from afar
And forever be amazed
At how glorious you are
Yet you've drawn us close to you
Where the wonder's greater still
And you overwhelm us, God

And we rejoice with trembling in our hearts
Bring you a song of reverence and love
Jesus, how good, how great you are
And we rejoice with trembling
Before your throne

Who could fully voice the praise
Of the God of endless days
Tell a fraction of your worth?
For we only sing in part
Of the grace of who you are
Just an echo, just a glimpse

And we rejoice with trembling in our hearts
Bring you a song of reverence and love
Jesus, how good, how great you are
And we rejoice with trembling
Before your throne



Behind the Song:
'I love this phrase from Psalm 2 Ė 'rejoice with trembling.' Itís such a mysterious line, but the more Iíve dwelt on it, the more powerful I find it. We do a lot of rejoicing in the church, and thatís fantastic, but where are we at when it comes to revering the Lord? While writing this song, I saw a great line in Leviticus 9:24 Ė 'They shouted for joy and they fell face down.' That verse never made it into the actual lyrics, but I hope something of that sense ended up in the song.

On this song I tried to hard to use a fresh chord progression. Thereís definitely a time for using the standard ones, but these lyrics felt like they needed a slightly different treatment. Itís amazing how new chords progressions will give you a freshness melodically, and it feels like thatís what happened here. I made a conscious effort to write a chord progression with more than my usual '3 in a row' vibe. This one ended up with 6 different chords in a row, which is a record for me!' - Matt Redman
