PETER FURLER GLORY TO THE KING LYRICS

 

Lyrics:

awake / you’re in a place you’ve never been / a world beyond imagining / and the gates are open wide // awake / there’s nothing to compare it to / today your Savior beckons you / to a throne with no divide // like a wave / reaching the shore / with a final roar // a sea / a sea of voices sing / Glory to the King /
the King of everything // you’re here / lift up your hands and sing / Glory to the King / the King of everything // awake / as shadows lift from every doubt / with nothing more to figure out / and no more tears to dry // awake / to loved ones you’ve so dearly missed / the sting of death does not exist / and there’s no more wondering why // one sound / one light / one glorious sight // a sea / a sea of voices sing / Glory to the King / the King of everything // join in / lift up your hands and sing / Glory to the King / the King of everything // sing / the King of Glory’s face is shining down / sing / for every soul that’s been redeemed / sing / your family needs you to complete the sound / it it’s a bigger family / than you’ve ever dreamed // a sea / a sea of voices sing / Glory to the King / the King of everything // it’s here / the great awakening / Glory to the King / the King of everything // a sea / a sea of voices sing / Glory to the King / the King of everything // we’re here / to raise our hands and sing / Glory to the King / the King of everything

Behind the Song:
‘“This is a song about that great awakening,” says Peter, “that day when we come to be in presence of God for all eternity.” Of course, for Peter Furler, this ‘funeral song’ is anything but what you’d expect. It’s a full-on worship anthem that will likely be sung among generations to come, as corporate as corporate gets, yet as unrestrained in its chorus as waves crashing on the shore.’ – Melissa Riddle Chalos
