about

NOTE: WHEN YOU DOWNLOAD THE FULL ALBUM IT COMES WITH LEAD SHEETS FOR THE SONGS!

The Hills Beyond is a band of musicians from University Presbyterian Church. The group coalesced out of a three fold desire: To create music that is robust, interesting and congregationally engaging; to lead worship that is theologically rich as well as repetitive and meditative; and to write music out of the things their community is hearing God speak. The Hills Beyond has developed a highly collaborative style of song writing. From start to finish each song is molded and shaped, in some way, by every member of the band. Together they are able to craft a song that is greater than any one member could do alone.

By God’s Mercy we become the sacrifice;
Dying in his death, living by his life.

Breathe on us, breathe on us.

The veil has been lifted; God’s breath breathed into you.

In the face of Christ
There is the Glory
Of the Imaged One.
In the face of Christ
There is the glory
Father, Spirit, Son.

Verse 1:
I sought the Lord and knew
He'd move my soul to sing;

join an unending song
and praise his holy name.

Chorus:
The glory of the Lord is Christ, our righteousness.
The glory of the Lord is our righteousness.

Verse 2:
Our father in heaven
Hallowed be your name;
Your kingdom will come
And your will be done.
Give us our daily bread
And forgive us our sins;
As we have forgiven
Those who have wronged us.
Lead us not to despair
But deliver us

Our father in heaven (hallowed be your name)
Your kingdom come, your will be done
on the earth as is in heaven.

You make us new

The Father, Son, and Spirit
Prepare a place for us

Track Name: O Magnify
Verse 1:
My soul magnifies the Lord, my spirit rejoices
In God my Savior, he cares for His humble servant
Now all generations will see the Lord has blessed me
For He who is mighty has done great things for me

Chorus:
Holy is His name
Holy is His name

Verse 2:
His Mercy is for those who worship and humbly serve Him
He’s shown strength with His arm and scattered those of us who are proud
He’s brought down the mighty and exalted those of low degree
He has filled the hungry; the rich he sent away empty

Bridge:
O magnify the Lord
Spirit rejoice in God my Savior
Track Name: Empire
Verse 1:
We are not proud of the things that we have done
We've built up our walls thinking that we could become our own kingdom
But God is an Empire, God is an Empire

Verse 2:
The walls have come down since that day when we found our folly,
Storing up high the things that we thought could buy our freedom
But God is an Empire, God is an Empire

Chorus:
He's building a kingdom,
He's building an empire,
He's building a kingdom,
He's building out of sinners.

Verse 3:
For now we wait here and are strangers in a land that's foreign
Hoping for the day when he'll come back down and reign in his Kingdom.
'Cause Our God is an Empire, Our God is an Empire

Bridge
Halleluiah! (ah ah ah ah ah ah)

and to him are all things. (repeat)

The Glory is yours; we are your people forever.
