Hillsong Urges Us to Live in 'Remembrance' in New Song

Hillsong’s ‘Remembrance’

“Oh to think where I would be, if not for you.” – A simple, yet profound statement from Hillsong on their newly released album, There Is More (and we have had it on repeat at GOD TV since it released). But it’s so easy to forget all the good that has happened in our lives when things go wrong. We live in a world that puts all the attention on the negative. Everywhere we look, the news is telling us about all the tragedy that’s happening, and rarely reminds us of the good in the world. It’s so easy to get depressed with all this negativity, and that’s why it’s SO CRUCIAL to live in Remembrance of the greatness of God, and all He has done. The declaration in the bridge, starting with “You’ve been so, so good to me” is such a great way to summarize this remembrance. Even when we feel so clouded with doubt, fear, anxiety, heartache, just speaking those words will let His light break through your darkest moments. “Remind me I’m not finished yet” comes in at the end of the song, and sometimes that’s all we need to hear. THERE IS MORE!

Listen and remember as you read the poignant lyrics below.

VERSE 1:
I take the bread of life
Broken for all my sin
Your body crucified
To make me whole again

VERSE 2:
I will recall the cup
Poured out in sacrifice
To trade this sinners’ end
For Your new covenant

CHORUS:
Hallelujah
I’ll live my life in remembrance
Hallelujah Your promise I won’t forget

VERSE 3:
I’ll walk salvation’s road
With fear and trembling
Your way borne as my own
As Christ is formed in me

CHORUS:
Hallelujah
I’ll live my life in remembrance
Hallelujah
Your promise I won’t forget

POST CHORUS 1:
If ever I should lose my way
If ever I deny Your grace
Remind me of the price You paid
Hallelujah
I’ll live in remembrance

BRIDGE (repeated):
You’ve been so so good to me
You’ve been so so good to me
Oh to think where I would be
If not for You
If not for You

POST CHORUS 2:
As far as heights reach from the depths
As far as east is from the west
So far Your grace has carried me

POST CHORUS 3:
Until I see You face to face
Until at last I’ve won my race
Remind me Youʼre not finished yet

TAG:
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
I’ll live in remembrance
