Anita Faye’s new worship track is both an outpouring of praise and an appeal to the body of Christ, to stand in the power of God. Written by Chantel N. Collier with music by Brandon Williams, the song was transformed from poetry that was downloaded in a moment of quiet reflection. Picture this. A young woman is sitting near the ocean, quietly praying and meditating—seeking insight and inspiration. The deeper she goes inwardly, the more clearly she hears the words that formed this song. “To God be the Glory” is a beautiful moment of pure worship that encourages believers to stand in their faith and declare the truth of the Gospel, even when others do not understand our Heavenly creator or why we feel called and compelled to worship God.
“We are living in a time when it is politically and socially polarizing to voice our Christian faith. And people are trying to twist a belief in God as an illegitimate pursuit, in favor of other world views,” says Anita Faye. “Well, thanks be to God that He has given us authority and power over the voice of the enemy. And this song implores us to be unwavering.”
