Everlasting God
by Brenton Brown


Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord, we will wait upon you Lord (x 2)
Our God, you reign forever
Our hope, our strong deliverer...
You are the everlasting God, the everlasting God
You do not faint, you won't grow weary
You're the defender of the weak, you comfort those in need
You lift us up on wings like eagles...

ccli # 4556538 / Brenton Brown/Ken Riley, 2004

Behind the Song:
"This song began it's life before I fell ill. It started late on a Friday after our worship teams had driven four hours to arrive at a week-end retreat centre. Exhausted after a long week, and a longer drive, we thought we'd have a quick prayer before bedtime. We decided to include percussion instruments just for fun. Well past midnight the words 'strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord' came to me as each of us played a rythmn on a hand drum and offered prayers to God. Two years later a good friend of ours Ken Riley visited us in London. We'd planned on doing some writing together. As Ken played the chords and melody for the bridge that short refrain came back to me. It was a few months and a lot of time spent thinking on Isaiah before we were satisfied with the chorus. Isaiah 40 basically says don't think that God has forgotten you, or that he is unable to save you. Flowers fade, and grass withers - and we fade and wither with them. But God does not grow faint. He won't grow weary. He is everlasting. And He is watching us, giving strength to the weary and the weak. Those who wait on this God will not be disappointed." - Brenton Brown
