02. Shout Of The King

Alive Again
by Matt Maher



 

Verse 1
You're not like man
That you should lie
You do not falter
Or change your mind

All that you say
Is what you do
All that you promise
You're seeing through

Pre-Chorus 1
So we wait on you, lord
And we rise to your voice

Chorus
The shout of the king, the son of god
Your presence now here with us
The sound of praise all in a name
Jesus Christ, the one who saves
All you people rise to the shout of the king

Verse 2
There is no power
No scheme of man
That separates
Us from your hand

We will not move
Far from your gaze
Here in your presence
We will remain

Pre-Chorus 2
So we stand on you word
And we run to your voice

Bridge
It's the sound that breaks down strongholds
It's the sound that makes a sinner whole
The sound of freedom falling on the earth
The sound of victory



Behind the Song:
'Shout of the King”—was a song I co-write with Sarah Reeves. Originally for her CD, it never got recorded, so I decided to take a crack at it. Based on Numbers 23:21, or “The third oracle of Balaam”, where it describes how completely “other” God is, in the sense of His faithfulness; and because of such truths, no misfortune is with God's people - that the “Shout of the King” is among them. Jesus is our biggest encourager - leading us in praise of the Father. Despite our sin and frailty, God truly is always for us.' - Matt Maher
