Worship Wednesdays: Introduction (Hillsong United’s “The Stand”)

worship wednesdays 21st May 2014

Hello everyone and welcome to Worship Wednesdays! I intend on covering any and all things Worship! For my first Worship Wednesday Post, I thought I would go with my all-time favorite worship song: “The Stand” by Hillsong United (now called United).

No matter what mood I’m in, whether it be happy, sad, content, or feeling rushed; this song always makes me stop whatever I’m doing to worship God. I can’t say that there are many songs that make me stop and worship as quickly as “The Stand” can, if that makes sense to any of you.

“The Stand” is a phenomenal song from start to finish but if I had to choose my favorite lyrics from it, these would be it:

‘I’ll stand
With arms high and heart abandoned
In awe of the One who gave it all
I’ll stand
My soul Lord to you surrendered
All I am is Yours’

To me, those words are the very essence of worship. Standing with our arms high stretched out to God saying that, ultimately, we are His. And I, for one, will forever be in awe of the price that Christ paid for us on Calvary.

If you’ve never heard the song, you can listen to it here on Hillsong United’s YouTube channel. I would love to hear what your thoughts are on this song, just leave a comment below!
