Song of the Week: “See the Glory” by Steven Curtis Chapman


Special edition with embedded video!  And also on Tuesday!

A big shout-out to Tek for introducing me to this fantastic song.  “See the Glory” is everything that a great song should be.  The lyrics are smart and thought-provoking, addressing our far-too-often apathetic response to God’s overwhelming, all-encompassing, glorious grace.  On top of that, the music is catchy and invigorating, Steven Curtis Chapman gives a splendid vocal performance, and it features a Game Boy solo.  Yes, you read that correctly.  A Game Boy solo.  Click through to give it a listen.

The lyrics are down there, and don’t forget to leave your suggestions for future songs of the week in the comments below.  I love hearing new music!

“See the Glory” by Steven Curtis Chapman

I never did like the word mediocre
I never wanted it to be said of me, oh, no
Just point me to the top and I’d go over, over
Looking for the very best that could be
So what is this thing I see
Going on inside of me?
When it comes to the grace of God
Sometimes it’s like …

I’m playing Gameboy standing in the middle of the Grand Canyon
I’m eating candy sittin’ at a gourmet feast
I’m wading in a puddle when I could be swimming in the ocean
Tell me what’s the deal with me
Wake up and see the glory

Every star in the sky tells His story, oh
And every breeze is singing His song
All of creation is imploring
Hey, come see this grand phenomenon
The wonder of His grace
Should take my breath away
I miss so many things when I’m content with …

Playing Gameboy standing in the middle of the Grand Canyon
Or eating candy sittin’ at a gourmet feast
Or wading in a puddle when I could be swimming in the ocean
I know the time for me to
Wake up and see the glory

Yeah, Yeah
Wake up and see the glory, yeah

How could I trivialize it
This awesome gift of God’s grace?
Once I have come to realize it
I should be speechless and amazed

Wake up and see the glory
Open your eyes and take it in
Wake up and be amazed
Over and over again

God’s love is calling to you and to me
Wake up, wake up
Open your eyes
