Citizens & Saints are premiering a new lyric video for "Day By Day," an honest and gripping track of hope and redemption from the Seattle-based worship group's upcoming release, A Mirror Dimly, out September 16, 2016.


The track fits the overall theme of the record which deal openly with the band's search for clarity in the midst of a difficult time as they dealt with the downfall of the church organization they were associated with over the years, Mars Hill.

​Even when I'm at my worst, I am still of righteous birth
Covered by a saving grace, Past, present future debt erased
My heart is changing day by day

When I run like wild fire
I am still a ransomed child
Bought will blood bought on a tree
Sin, death, they have no hold on me
My will is changing day by day

I'm not who I was, I am who I am
A sinner saved, a stumbling saint
Still never alone, He's alive in my bones
The ghost of God, Sanctifies

Day by day by day

“Faith and doubt aren’t exclusive to Christian belief, but relative to the nature of the human heart," shares front man Zach Bolen. "To doubt God is evidence of that nature, and doubt in one thing often prompts the belief in another. So in regards to the gospel, we have to first doubt our own ability to save ourselves (acknowledging our neediness) in order to believe (have faith) that God is our only way to salvation. To believe in God is evidence of a power at work that goes beyond the bounds of human nature."

“This record wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for the fall of Mars Hill as an organization. One of the best days in the history of Seattle was the day Mars Hill shut it doors. While the brothers and sisters of that community may not meet all together in similar places anymore, the Church of Christ did not crumble and it certainly has not weakened because of it. We experienced the love of God through His presence and His people in ways we never had before. A Mirror Dimly is the result of both personal struggles, and conversations with those swimming in doubt post Mars Hill, yet inclusive enough to be a cathartic journey of listening and contemplation for any and all. We’re not the first people to go through hard stuff; we all suffer in different ways. There is hope beyond the foggy glass; the joys of being loved forever, free from the burdens of the wounds we all carry.” 

A Mirror Dimly will be available Friday, September 16, 2016.
