Matt Redman: Greatest Hallelujah

Songwriter Matt Redman released his new album Glory Song last Friday.  I loved the song Greatest Hallelujah.  Here are the lyric video, a live acoustic performance and a little about the story behind the writing of the song.

The words of the song are:

There’s a hallelujah, an everlasting song
A never-ending anthem we sing to You alone
Resounding in the heavens and in our hearts today
How greatly we’re forgiven and how great
How great will be Your praise

And with this song I will rise for the honour of Your name
From this breath to my last then forever and a day
I’ll pour out my heart, I’ll pour out my soul
My greatest hallelujah

Alpha and Omega, Beginning and the End
Author of Salvation, a Father and a friend
You thunder and You whisper, Your glory fills the skies
Worthy, You are worthy
Let Your name, Your name be lifted high

And with this song I will rise for the honour of Your name
From this breath to my last then forever and a day
I’ll pour out my heart, I’ll pour out my soul
My greatest hallelujah

There’s a moment coming, a day above them all
When we will stand in glory and see the face of God
Sing holy, holy, holy, holy is the Lord
And bring our hallelujahs for You reign,
You reign forevermore

And with this song I will rise for the honour of Your name
From this breath to my last then forever and a day
I’ll pour out my heart, I’ll pour out my soul
My greatest hallelujah
