We sing the refrain from this song in our church a lot. I would imagine most of our church members have never heard the whole thing. That's ok. We normally tag it onto a song about the greatness of God, which always works well, and it's always a pretty joyous occasion. When we listen to it here though, we see the other side of the coin. Our God reigns over everything. In the midst of the AIDS crisis, abortion, hunger, and other Social Justice issues, He Reigns. The line, "as we fight for this broken world on our knees," is two part. 1st, it obviously is an exhortation to pray for the brokenness in the world. 2nd, I think it should encourage believers, as the Lord requires of us in Micah 6:8, to act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
I think we walk humbly on our knees.
Our God Reigns is written by Martin Smith of Delirious? and is performed here by Delirious?.
