Seek and Surrender's 'Everyone Under The Sun' is a powerful and inspiring Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) song that celebrates the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for all humanity. The song was written by Tim on his 12-string guitar in 2016, and over time, it developed into the beautiful piece of music it is today. The lyrics are simple yet profound, touching on the key themes of Jesus' teachings and ultimate sacrifice. The song takes the listener on a spiritual journey through the life, teachings, and ultimate sacrifice of Jesus, reminding us of His love and the hope that comes through His resurrection.
The song starts with the repetition of the words 'He's alive' as a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The chorus then declares the central message of the song, that Jesus gave His life for everyone under the sun, two thousand years ago. The lyrics then paint a picture of Jesus walking the earth, teaching and preaching His living words, which still stand yesterday, today, and forever. The chorus repeats, reinforcing the message of the love and sacrifice of Jesus for all.
The song then moves into a powerful bridge that speaks of the unjust condemnation of Jesus, His crucifixion, and the taking of the sin of the world upon Himself. The lyrics declare that it was the greatest act of love that brings us to life for Him. This powerful bridge reminds us of the incredible love and sacrifice Jesus made for us, so that we might have life through Him.
The song then moves back into the chorus, repeating the message that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. The lyrics celebrate the fact that He is alive, and that He gave His life for everyone under the sun. The song concludes with a powerful declaration that Jesus is the Son of God and that He gave His life for everyone.
The background of the song is also significant, as it shows how Seek and Surrender took their time to develop the song and make it the best it could be. The song started with just the chorus chords on a 12-string guitar in 2016. Slowly over time, the rest of the song began to take shape, with the verse chords and lyrics arriving later. The song was finally recorded in their home studio, with cascades of guitars, effects, and lush overtones of melodies that take the listener on a spiritual journey.
Christian's comments about the song further reveal the depth of meaning and emotion behind the lyrics. The lyrics were completed on Mother's Day of 2020, and the song was recorded in 2021. The use of Luke 24:5 in the lyrics and the celebration-like manner in which the 'He is alive' part is sung adds to the uplifting and inspiring nature of the song. The final chorus is particularly moving, with Tim's voice rising as he passionately sings 'For everyone under the sun' while the music reaches a beautiful crescendo.
Overall, Seek and Surrender's 'Everyone Under The Sun' is an inspiring and uplifting CCM song that celebrates the love and sacrifice of Jesus Christ for all humanity. The song's beautiful music and lyrics take the listener on a spiritual journey through the life, teachings, and ultimate sacrifice of Jesus, reminding us of His love and the hope that comes through His resurrection. I recommend listening to this song, as it is sure to inspire and uplift anyone who hears it.
