New Life Worship announces their new song, "Our God Is Over All," is out today accompanied by a live video. As the first single from their upcoming album, Over It All, two additional songs will become available prior to the album's April release.
"Our God Is Over All" was written and led by Jon Egan. Solely writing the song in a mere 45 minutes, he shares, "I was feeling the itch to write something that I simply wanted to say to God. Though we have so much to rejoice about there is also much to grieve in the world. I wasn’t overly concerned with writing a great song. My hope was to write something real and raw, something that said what I felt needed to be spoken."
"I’m not sure I had anyone else in mind other than my own need to sing," Egan continues. "I thought about how worship is this extraordinary gift, especially in such times. Though I will always love worship first because it glorifies Jesus, I also love the way worship brings us through, how it stands in the face of complete darkness and sings a reality that outshines it, how it lifts our souls to remember what is real."
New Life Worship is a collective of worship leaders and musicians that serve at New Life Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado. With a rich history of serving the church with songs like "Strong God," "Great I Am," "I Am Free," and "Here In Your Presence," New Life Worship is stepping into a fresh season of new songs being birthed in the church.
The group exists to nourish a biblically- faithful, historically-rooted, musically-skilled, and vibrantly prophetic multi-generational worship culture. They focus on encountering the living God - both in the “here and now” and in the confidence of what is to come. Their voice is communal, formed with the belief that their collective efforts yield more than just the sum of their individual contributions, working at shaping their songs to bring formation to the soul with a message that is packaged in beauty and creativity. They seek to make their voice ancient and new - ancient by honoring and referencing rich church history and those who have gone before us, and new by knowing that in the Hebrew texts of the Psalms, God desires new songs to be emanating from his people.
