Last Sunday, we sang this in church, and I have been singing the bridge all week.
To the One who overcame
To the One who made a way
To the One seated high
Be glory unending
I hope you’ll listen to the whole song as I think it’s really powerful, but I want to focus on these words for just a few minutes.
Dictionary.com says this about overcome/overcame:
I like #5 best. To gain the victory. He gained the victory over sin and death on our behalf.
To the One who made a way.
To the One seated high.
When important people come to speak, or just to watch an event, they are usually seated higher than others–either on a platform or stage, or in a balcony. A king is seated on a throne. Our King is also seated on a throne, at the right hand of God in heaven. He sits in his rightful place, interceding for us. I’m so thankful.
Be glory unending.
Revelation 5:13, “And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying: ‘Blessing and honor and glory and power Be to Him who sits on the throne, And to the Lamb, forever and ever!‘” [emphasis mine]
