02. The Highest and The Greatest

Holding Nothing Back
by Tim Hughes



 

Wake every heart and every tongue
To sing the new eternal song
And crown Him King of Glory now
Confess Him, Lord of all

You are the highest
You are the greatest
You are the Lord of all
Angels will worship
Nations will bow down
To the Lord of all

A day will come when all will sing

And glorify our matchless King
Your name unrivaled stands alone
You are the Lord of all

Let every heart
Let every tongue
Sing of Your name
Sing of Your name
Let every heart
Let every tongue
Sing, sing, sing

Lifting You higher, higher and higher




Behind the Song:
A friend of mine, Nick Herbert got together with me to play through some song ideas. He started singing this verse, ‘Wake every heart and every tongue. To sing the new eternal song.’ I loved the hymn like feel of the song. He didn’t have a chorus, but wanted the lead line to be, ‘You are the highest, You are the greatest.’ I loved that line - majestic and powerful. Muhammad Ali, once famously said, ‘I am the greatest.’ He was wrong. Jesus is the greatest. There’s nothing higher. There’s none that can rival Him. We spent the afternoon working on the song and I started singing out a chorus melody. As we bounced ideas back and forth we began to really hone in on the song. By the end of our time together we’d made great progress. The melody felt strong - anthemic and singable. Over the next few weeks we emailed back and forth lyrical ideas. We were keen to maintain a hymn like feel, with lyrics that speak of the greatness of God. ---------Tim Hughes
