"Let the ruins come to life - In the beauty of Your Name - Rising up from the ashes -God forever You reign."
The chorus from the title track of Hillsong’s twenty-second album in the band’s live praise and worship series is captured from a vivid image in the imagination of Senior Pastor, Brian Houston:
“Ruins can speak of crushing defeat or perhaps of something abandoned, but the good news today is that the ruins come to life. …Through Jesus Christ what we look at is ruins that become glorious..."
Recorded live in London, England and Sydney, Australia, the album includes 12 fresh new songs and features “Man of Sorrows”, “Glorious Ruins”, “Christ is Enough”, “Anchor” and “Where The Spirit of the Lord Is.”
Since 1992, Hillsong has resourced local churches with gold and platinum albums, writing well known worship songs including "Shout To The Lord", "Inside Out", "Hosanna", "The Stand", “Mighty to Save” and most recently the highest debuting song on the most recent CCLI chart, “Cornerstone”.
The congregational expression of Hillsong Church, Sydney, the worship team - including Reuben Morgan, Joel Houston and Ben Fielding maintain a commitment to resource the Body of Christ with fresh songs of worship and encourage a deeper connection with the Living God in a real and personal way.
On 27-28 October 2012, Hillsong Australia recorded part one of Glorious Ruins at the Hills Campus, Sydney. On 17 February 2013, Hillsong London recorded the second part of the album at London's Dominion Theatre. Their joint aim across the miles, whether it be in times of personal or corporate church devotion, is that the lyrics contained in this album stir your faith in - and love for, Jesus Christ.
The DVD is Region 0 and will play on UK DVD players.
Glorious Ruins Deluxe CD/DVD by Hillsong was published by Hillsong in July 2013 and is our 8572nd best seller. The ISBN for Glorious Ruins Deluxe CD/DVD is 9320428243997.
In the salvation story, glory and ruins are inextricably linked: death to sin, ourselves and our selfish desires leads to resurrection into Christ's glorious life.
Just as there's ring of melancholy around the image of ruins, perhaps what's most heartbreaking about "Glorious Ruins" is the absence of Hillsong’s 21 album veteran lead voice, Darlene Zschech. Instead vocals are shared between Hillsong regulars and Pastor Brian Houston's daughter Laura Toganivalu.
The title track, co-written by Joel Houston is the heart of the album:"Let the ruins come to life/In the beauty of Your Name/Rising up from the ashes/God forever You reign." A thoughtful ballad it reflects on God’s raising up of the dry bones in Ezekiel's prophecy. "Christ is Enough," finds Reuben Morgan exalting Christ as all sufficient and weaves his composition into the hymn "I Have Decided to Follow Jesus."
"Glorify Your Name" co-written by Morgan with worship music's biggest names including Matt Maher, Chris Tomlin, Jason Ingram and Ed Cash is a twenty first century pointer to the great classic hymn, "How Great Thou Art."
"Man of Sorrows" is an intricate, scriptural and stately hymn with a melodic structure while "You Crowned the Year" featuring new voice, Laura Toganivalu, is more celebratory and based on Psalm 65:11.
Elsewhere on the album, "Closer" and "God Who Saves" are more like what you’d expect from today's modern worship songs. But have Hillsong lost something with the departure of Darlene, or have they moved into a new exciting era with opportunities to hear other talented female vocalists? You decide.
