I love everything about this album ~ the music, the lyrics, the title (it speaks to me how the ruins of our lives can be resurrected and glorified through Christ alone), and the cover (awesome colors and design). When it comes to music, I'm about the whole experience.
Most of all, I love the message and that Jesus is magnified. It's all about Him. It's the kind of album where you can't just pick a few songs you like; every song is fantastic and meaningful. When you purchase the whole album, a bonus sermon (also entitled Glorious Ruins) from Hillsong Church Senior Pastor Brian Houston is also included. Good stuff. A great, fresh worship album. Truly ministers to me. It's what's hot on my iPod right now.
P.S. If you're looking for some new worship music, I highly recommend Glorious Ruins.
All I want, all I need
More of you, less of me
Take this life, Lord it's yours
Have my heart, have it all
All I want is to be like You
(To Be Like You)
Let the ruins come to life
In the beauty of Your Name
Rising up from the ashes
God forever You reign
There is hope in the promise of the cross
You gave everything to save the world You love
And this hope is an anchor for my soul
Our God will stand unshakeable
