What You Need To Know In their own words, A Jesus Church describes their latest full-length albumTake Your Throne as, "a prayer of petition, asking God to take His rightful place in our lives and in this world." The worship collective delivers a stirring body of work with songs themed around the prayer of Matthew 6:10 that God's kingdom would come and His will would be done on earth as it is in heaven.
What It Sounds Like With Take Your Throne, A Jesus Church inspires deeper worship in us all. This album has everything: sing-able choruses ("When We Praise You"), quiet moments of singing spontaneous prayers ("Be Still"), and soaring builds that move to you grab hold of truth in the lyrics with faith and passion ("Take Your Throne").
Spiritual/Lyrical Highlights Thematically, "Yes & Amen (Life in Your Hands)" is a standout song on the record. It's a powerful reminder that God doesn't need our perfection or strength in order to use us or to work in our lives. He simply needs our surrendered hearts saying yes to Him. You don't need wisdom/You don't need power/Just my yes and amen/My life in Your hands/Not perfection/Not ambition/Just my yes and amen/My life in Your hands
The lyrics are similar to what we read in 1 Corinthians 1:26-29. The passage talks about God choosing us and saving because of His wisdom, power, and grace, not our own strength or merit.
Best Song On The Record The opening song, "On the Earth" wins for best song on the record. The song takes the timeless prayer "your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven" and sings it modern melodies. The lyrics capture the overall theme and inspiration of the entire album, making it a fitting opening track.
