10. Lord, Let Your Glory Fall

Where Angels Fear To Tread
by Matt Redman



 

Lord, let Your glory fall
As on that ancient day
Songs of enduring love
And then Your glory came
And as a sign to You
That we would love the same
Our hearts will sing that song
God, let Your glory come

You are good, You are good
And Your love endures
You are good, You are good
And Your love endures
Today

Voices in unison
Giving You thanks and praise
Joined by the instruments
And then Your glory came
Your presence like a cloud
Upon that ancient day
The priests were overwhelmed
Because Your glory came



Behind the Song:
'This song is four years old now, but I was desperate to finally get it onto one of my studio albums, as we do it a lot congregationally still.

As a lead worshipper, I often return to 2 Chronicles 5-7, the scripture this song is based on. It’s an amazing picture of congregational worship; it has everything – a hearty band (120 trumpeters!), a big song of praise, unity, consecration… and the presence of God. So the song recalls that amazing day they dedicated the temple to God, and met with Him so powerfully, and says 'Lord, let your glory fall on us, as on that day.'

I actually wrote the verses to this song in my head on a train. That explains why the verse are alternating bars of 3/4 and 4/4. I kept it like that because it felt fresh, but in all honesty it took me a good few minutes to get the hang of playing it on the guitar!' - Matt Redman
