11. Where Angels Fear to Tread

Where Angels Fear To Tread
by Matt Redman



 

If it wasn't for your mercy
If it wasn't for your love
If it wasn't for your kindness
How could I stand?
If it wasn't for your cleansing
If it wasn't for your blood
If it wasn't for your goodness
How could I stand?

Yet I find myself again
Where even angels fear to tread
Where I would never dare to come
But for the cleansing of your blood

With you there is forgiveness
And therefore you are feared
Jesus it's your loving kindness
That brings me to my knees

And I find myself again
Where even angels fear to tread
Where I would never dare to come
But for the cleansing of your blood

In the beauty of your holiness
Here in the beauty of your holiness



Behind the Song:
"I love this phrase... it brings such a sense of reverence with it. Although, it’s not in the Bible, the essence of it lines up pretty well with scripture – that even awesome beings like angels walk reverently with every step before God. I also like the fact that this phrase communicates to those who’ve never been to church too.

This song is all about the blessing we have in drawing near to God, through the blood of Jesus. "And I find myself again, where even angels fear to tread; where I would never dare to come, but for the cleansing of your blood." This is the awe-inspiring privilege of Christian worship." - Matt Redman
