Worship artist and songwriter Phil Thompson drops his latest single, "Only Risen King," with Integrity Music. Accompanied with a live performance video, "Only Risen King" will be featured on Thompson's sophomore album, Lion of Judah, slated to release July 23 and is now available for pre-order. This latest release is the third to drop leading up to the album, following "Jesus" and "Constant Mercies."
Thompson, who wrote the song with Nathaniel Smith, shares, "There’s a boldness that comes with knowing who you are. There’s a boldness that comes from knowing your identity in HIM. My favorite type of boldness is when you’re standing on His word. That type of boldness and confidence is unbreakable when you understand the nature of the Father, and how lying is not in His makeup, that true rest comes from trusting God. This song is braggadocios in a hip-hop way. But we obviously aren’t boasting about ourselves, we’re boasting about our Father. The point of this song is to be in your face. Sorry but not sorry!"
"I won’t be ashamed to declare the praises Of my God, the risen King
The One who gave His life for me
Name above all names Who came to break the chains
The God who sets the captives free, His love will always fight for me
We are not ashamed to declare Your glory and Your majesty
You’re the only risen King
When I call Your name all the earth will tremble and the darkness must flee
You’re the only risen King."
