REVERE Releases "The Lord, Our God"


Introducing "The Lord, Our God" by REVERE. Born from a unique collaboration of four writers representing six different countries during a songwriting camp in Stockholm, Sweden, this song is a testament to the universality of worship and the power of music to bring people together.

Unlike many contemporary worship songs that focus on what God does for us or our personal acts of worship, "The Lord, Our God" centers solely on Jesus. It's not about what we bring to the table, but about who He is - The Lord, OUR God. This isn't a song of possession, but a song of declaration. It's a proclamation that God isn't limited to one nation or one people but belongs to all.

In a time where unity seems more crucial than ever, this song resonates deeply with REVERE. Their aspiration is to remind the Church that God isn't 'my God' or 'your God', but 'our God'. They hope that this song serves as a rallying cry for unity, urging us to come together in worship of Jesus.

REVERE shares, "When we wrote it we shared it the following night at a worship night in Sweden and it was shocking how quickly people started singing. It was like they already knew it and the old historic cathedral full of people began belting out the words of this song as though it has been born into their DNA."

REVERE is a growing movement focussing on restoring the humble and honouring nature of worship. A generation ago, Christianity went through a massive shift. The formality of corporate worship gave way to 'intimacy', and we were forever changed. The ongoing work of the Spirit released us into 'a spiritual intensity', but our ultimate longing has always been a weighty encounter in the presence of God that is less about our contribution and more about our surrender. REVERE is a musical journey from intimacy to intensity into the fear of the Lord, where we fall down and cry out: "Holy, holy, holy are You, Lord Almighty."

Throughout history, the medium of our worship has communicated what we truly believe about God. Whenever we have been in seasons of faith and healthy dependence, the medium has been reverential songs and liturgies that are soaked in honesty and humility, the Psalms being a case in point. Whenever we have taken our eyes off the mark, we have replaced these with idols that we have been able to make with our own hands, substituting vulnerability with human ingenuity. If we are to be honest, we are facing this internal tug of war in the Church today. God forbid that our skills to produce and finesse cause us to move away from the simplicity and mystery of full surrender.

Our hope with REVERE is to gently help steer the Church away from a production culture where the emphasis can, mistakenly, become a love for worship, to a reverential cultural where the focus is, clearly and firmly, a love for Christ.
