about

"Glory" was one of the ones written during my time spent in Vanuatu - a creatively prolific time since there was no tv, almost no radio, and a lot of Blessings and Trials. It explores the theme of 'service' and revealed itself quite slowly, as understanding grew over the year. It also probably reflects a bit of the slower-paced sun-drenched inside-to-the-outside kind of rawness that I learnt to live by there. At least for a while.

lyrics

I just want glory not for me but of me.
Glory
That I might be for God what God has been in me

I won’t give up. I will keep my faith
and I will shine
As God made me to

And you will shine too as our liberation is bound
For in the eyes of God we’re one

We won’t give up. We will keep our faith
and we will shine
As God made us to

I’ll give my life; I’ll give my all
For what I have remembered and you will be in me
Through all as I am here in you

And we find the more we give away the more we have
To give away
It’s a feeling at the start of a day that if we don’t give away, we’ll whither away
It’s a fountain full of fire and of fuel

We’ll give our lives; we’ll give our all
for what we have remembered
we'll lay it down we'll burn it up
we'll give until it hurts
and you will be in us through all
as we are here in you

I just want glory, not for me but of me
glory
