Hillsong United has been known world over for their worship music. This year, they have taken worship music to a whole other level.
Their album, Zion is full of interesting sounds. But the acoustic sessions of that album has piqued my interest the most. This stripped down, true-to-words version of the album makes you focus on the lyrics and brings you to your knees in worship.
“Relentless” is such a unique and true way to describe His love for us. When we think of a love that “goes on” and is “relentless”, we believe in a force that makes us be loved by that Almighty who created love in the first place. It makes us hope for a love so intense that it fights “for the furthest heart”. It truly makes “distant hearts begin believing”.
An idea that there is a God out there whose love for us is unrelenting, intense, persistent, never-ending, steady, incessant and uninterrupted just takes you to a place of awe and worship that no amount of doubt can ever take away from you.
I could go on writing about how His love is amazing, but what stood out most for me in this song is that there is hope for the ones out there that are far away from His love. And even when you are feeling down in the dumps and see no light at the end of your tunnel, this song reminds you that He carries us “when the world gives way”. Is there any love greater than that?
