Creator God was written in time for the Co-Mission Bible Festival where the theme was ‘Created for Christ’.
I started with the idea of viewing Jesus’ death and resurrection through the lens that He is also the Creator and Sustainer of all things. The line came to me: ‘the One who spoke out stars now breathes His last’, and the rest of the song unravelled from there.
The thing I loved most about writing this song was mining the Scriptures, seeing how God the Creator and Author came down in Jesus Christ to redeem those who have marred His likeness, and re-create our hearts and welcome us into His New Creation. It’s amazing to think that the same power of God that spoke light into darkness at creation speaks life and light into our hearts as we behold Jesus Christ (2 Cor. 4:6).
My prayer for this song is that people give glory to God for the beauty of creation, the glory of redemption, and eagerly await the Day ‘decay is slain by glory’ and we join the ‘New Creation anthem’.
