The Royal Royal – Praise Him

I have to say I’ve enjoyed my first week back on the blog, which makes Praise Him by The Royal Royal the perfect celebratory song to end the week on.

Praise Him is one of several songs bringing me a great deal of joy at the moment and was the first from The Royal Royals (overall brilliant album) that caught my attention within the first beat.

The song by Canadian brothers, Nathan & Gabe Finochio, is a praise anthem from opening lyric to the very last note.

The duo wrote it as a worship song for congregations the world over to enjoy and even provided an instructional video teaching you how to play the chords. Talk about a nudge to pick up my old guitar. Alas, Ruby has been sitting shamefully unused for some time and I fear I’ve lost all progress I was making.

But neglected talents aside, I thought I’d share the joy-filled lyrics with you and a few points of interest…

Lyrics:

To the amazing One
To the unchanging One
To Him the anthem raise
Lift up your hymns of praise

For all the things He’s done
For all the things to come
To Him the anthem raise
Lift up your hymns of

Praise Him with all of the music
Praise Him in all of the nations
Praise Him with all of creation

We praise Him we praise Him
Praise Him with all of your heart, sing
Praise Him in this generation
Jesus, the Light of Salvation
We praise Him we praise Him

See now the risen One
See the exalted Son
To Him the anthem raise
Lift up a shout of

Shine Your light forever and ever
Shine Your light forever and ever
Shine Your light, Shine Your light in the world

About The Royal Royal:

I first came across The Royal Royal whilst foraging for new music on Spotify and instantly fell in love with their album, The Royalty. Will definitely share a few more of my favourite tracks from their album.

For now though, here are 3 things I’ve learned and like about The Royal Royal:

3. THIS QUOTE FROM THEIR BIO:

Our prayer for you is that you connect with Jesus through these songs, that our song is clear and heard, and that you are inspired to sing your song. There is so much that we have to be thankful for and be creative about. This is our bread and loaves for Jesus, a representation of the most and the best of our life, almost everything we have come to know and practice in our walk with the Lord: music and family and church. This is also our small contribution to the worship conversation. More to come.
