    Rend Collective - Marching On


    The lyrics to this song got my spirit going this AM. Hope some of you will like it too.

    "Marching On"
    (feat. Hillsong Young & Free)

    [Rend Collective:]
    Let our praises remind all the darkness
    Of how great and how mighty our God is
    For the battle belongs to the Lord and no one else
    We are standing in holy defiance
    We're declaring aloud in the silence
    That the battle belongs to the Lord and no one else, no one else

    [Rend Collective & Hillsong Young & Free:]
    We'll sing "Hallelujah" for all Hell to hear
    Shout out "Hosanna" above every fear
    Strongholds will crumble like castles of sand
    We are marching on, we're marching on
    We're marching on
    We're marching on

    [Rend Collective:]
    Your unstoppable kingdom advances
    As we take back the ground from the darkness
    The battle belongs to the Lord and no one else
    You're the banner we raise in the chaos
    No, the gates of Hell won't stand against us
    The battle belongs to the Lord and no one else, no one else

    [Rend Collective & Hillsong Young & Free:]
    We'll sing "Hallelujah" for all Hell to hear
    Shout out "Hosanna" above every fear
    Strongholds will crumble like castles of sand
    We are marching on, we're marching on
    We're marching on
    We're marching on

    In the chaos, the crisis
    The troubles, the trials
    The shadows, the sorrows
    The long nights, the hard fight
    We are the prophets, the voice in the darkness
    Declaring the battle is Yours

    We'll sing "Hallelujah" for all Hell to hear
    Shout out "Hosanna" above every fear
    Strongholds will crumble like castles of sand
    We are marching on, we're marching on
    We'll sing "Hallelujah"
    Shout out "Hosanna"
    Strongholds will crumble
    We are marching on, we're marching on

    We are marching on...​

    Just as a side not to this I have often wondered what Hallelujah and Hosanna mean. I understand both words are used to praise God, but in using these words ,in song or speech, just seem foreign to this old man who only speaks English. I almost feel like I am speaking in tongues when I utter them. :)

    Hallelujah - Hebrew hallĕlūyāh praise (ye) the Lord 'YAH'
    Hosanna - from Hebrew hōshīʽāh-nnā pray, save (us)!

    :) Yes I phrased my post poorly. I guess what I am saying is that I personally have to translate Hallelujah and Hosanna each and every time in my mind, which I personally do not like to do. I have a vulgar mind I guess.

    That's an interesting observation, and I suspect many believers experience the same thing. I do with Hosanna. It doesn't immediately register as being a salvation statement; I have to translate it in my head. The only immediate connection I make is to flannelgraph images of people waving palm branches.

    I suppose one's childhood plays a role in such connections. With hallelujah, I grew up being taught to hear the divine name in that word, and to view its flippant use as a particularly serious violation of the third commandment. So in my case, it holds strong meaning right off the bat.
