The Prince of peace came bursting through the wind
The violent sky held its breath
And in Your light I found restTearing through the night
Riding on the storm
Staring down the fight
My eyes found Yours
Shining like the sun
Striding through my fear
The Prince of peace
Met me thereYou heard my prayerHope like the sun, light piercing through the dark
The Prince of peace came and broke into my heart
The violent cross, the empty grave
And in Your light I found grace…
Oh how those lyrics speak to me.
Hillsong United is one of my favorite Christian artists. They truly captivate me with their music and lyrics. It is as if they (really God) know(s) exactly what my heart needs to hear. Their newest album, Empires, will be just as well received as their previous ones. Winning GMA Dove Awards such as Artist of the Year and Song of the Year for “Oceans,” Hillsong United’s stirring vocals will take listeners on a journey seeking more of our Heavenly Father. I loved this powerful album with it’s powerful message. According to Joel Houston, the front man of Hillsong United, the message communicated in this new album is clear. We need to “be building, speaking and living for the unseen aspects of God’s kingdom.” The songs truly show how our eternity is not based or set on the things of this earth, but are set in the Kingdom of God.
