Luke Garfield - Behold (CCM)

Luke Garfield - Behold
Luke Garfield has released a Christian Contemporary Music (CCM) track called Behold.

Behold is the first single from the album “The Unseen”. The album is a collection of faith centred songs some of which are specifically for a congregational church setting.
“Behold” draws directly from book 21 of Revelation in presenting the beautiful hope of God’s place being with man in the new heaven and earth. This has always been a deeply moving chapter for me.

Luke shares: "I remember completely breaking up as I read these beautiful words in a group devotional I was leading. Someone came up afterwards to ask if I had stuff going on and I laughed and said “No mate, those words are just so beautiful and encouraging”.
For me Behold is about the only true “happily ever after” at the end of the story and I’m excited to be releasing it as the first song from this album.
“The Unseen” album has been strongly influenced by the work of Dr Michael S Heiser, particularly his book “The Unseen Realm”. Major ideas in this work include human worth as those made in the image of God, a loving Father’s mission over millennia to be reunited with his human family and the depth and fullness of Christ’s finished work.
When I write music for a church setting or music in general, the themes and ideas have to be authentic to me personally. I have to feel honest singing them. In a church setting, the challenge is to convey those deep lyric concepts in a musically accessible way. But when people talk to me about these songs I am always reminded that the beautiful thing about lyrics is that everyone has their own unique revelation when they hear and sing it."


Lyrics:

Verse 1
He will wipe away every tear from our eyes
Mourning shall be no more, no reasons to cry
Death will be unwritten, there'll be no more pain
For the things we knew in this life will pass away

Chorus 1
Behold, I am making all things new
Behold, you are home and I'm with you
Behold, I am making all things new
Behold, you are home and I'm with you

Verse 2
And as we stand in that glorious place
The past won't pass through those open gates
It is done! The beginning and the end
Into the joy of your Father, enter in

Chorus 2
Behold, I am making all things new
Behold, you are home and I'm with you
Behold, I am making all things new
Behold, you are home and I'm with you
Behold! Behold! Behold!
Behold! Behold! Behold!

Bridge
What we suffer now cannot even compare
To the glory revealed to us when we stand there
What we suffer now cannot even compare
To the glory revealed to us when we stand there

Chorus 3
Behold, I am making all things new
Behold, you are home and I'm with you
Behold, I am making all things new
Behold, you are home and I'm with you
Behold! Behold! Behold!
Behold! Behold! Behold!
