Hillsong – Glorious Ruins lyrics

When the mountains fall
And the tempest roars You are with me
When creation folds
Still my soul will soar on Your mercy

I'll walk through the fire
With my head lifted high

And my spirit revived in Your story
And I'll look to the cross
As my failure is lost
In the light of Your glorious grace

Let the ruins come to life
In the beauty of Your Name
Rising up from the ashes
God forever You reign

And my soul will find refuge
In the shadow of Your wings
I will love You forever
And forever I'll sing

When the world caves in
Still my hope will cling to Your promise
Where my courage ends
Let my heart find strength in Your presence

    This song is so precious! It was rendered at the farewell service of my dear friend's hubby, who went to be with the lord in such tragic circumstances. She'd requested it specially and it made me see how someone can be triumphant in anguish. I have never seen such a beautiful widow. She has been such a blessing in her pain and these words are such an eloquent narrative. Please pray for ese, who lost her sweetheart on a plane crash. Thank you, Jumi.

    Never heard a song so inspiring and spirit filling like this, the beauty of God, the beauty Jesus, and the beauty of the Holy Spirit. I heard this song at a time I was having very dark and horrific time but this song gave me hope and courage. More importantly it has helped me renewed my desire to worship God and remain with Him always. Thank you Hillsong. I pray the Holy Spirit will continue to inspire you. Glory to God!

    Yes!, I saw my ruins come to life again in the power of His name. Nobody expected to see me remain afloat again. I rose from the ashes and now I am back to life again. May His name be praised forever! I resolved to worship Him the rest of my life. This song is on my smart phone. I resound it everyday. May the Lord bless you always, Hillsong.
