Let The Fire Fall

Majesty, worship His majesty,
Unto Jesus be all glory, power and praise.
Majesty, kingdom authority
Flows from His throne unto His own who His anthem raise.
So exalt, lift up on high the name of Jesus.
Magnify, come glorify Christ Jesus the King.
Majesty, worship His majesty,
Jesus who died, now glorified, King of all Kings.

We are living in increasingly difficult days and trying times, but there is one thing we can do that brings the glory of God to bear upon sickness, worry, fear, doubt, need, and sorrow—and that is to worship the Lord Jesus Christ. Worship is not just about music; it’s about turning our hearts to praise Him, to respond to God’s invitation that we come and worship Him, to give Him the space to move in among us.

Over twenty years ago, Pastor Jack Hayford wrote the song "Majesty" which has since become a classic and been sung around the world. Recently "Majesty" was voted one of the Ten Best Worship Songs of all time by readers of Christianity Today. In writing "Majesty" Pastor Hayford has said that his purpose was to deepen our hearts in the understanding of what worship is all about, and to capture two things:

  • The glory of Jesus in all of His wonder; and
  • A sense of what He wants of Kingdom authority to flow from His throne to our lives as we lift His anthems in praise.

"What He wants us to do as we praise Him," says Pastor Jack, "is to say, ‘Lord, You have made me glad; and You will make me triumph through the work of Your hands’."

At the conclusion of this year’s Conference on Spirit-Filled Living in May 2002, The Church On The Way presented an entire evening of worship and praise under the banner of "Majesty — Let The Fire Fall" with narration by Pastor Jack and a thrilling choir and orchestral presentation led by Dr. Tom McDonald. This two-cassette tape, SoundWord Tape #M4970, is available from Living Way Ministries or by calling (800) 776-8180.
