Rend Collective Experiment, “Build Your Kingdom Here”

More than seven months after the release of its official video, Rend Collective’s Build Your Kingdom Here has entered the Radio and Records’ Christian AC chart the week of April 19 at an impressive number 27. Written by Rend Collective Experiment, the song itself is an invitation to worship as a spiritual community, and its folksy instrumentation and instantly singable melody makes it a very likeable song. I like its scriptural reference to Colossians 3:14-16, and I predict a Top 20 finish, hopefully higher if Christian AC radio programmers are more open-minded.

Rend Collective Experiment

Come set Your rule and reign
In our hearts again
Increase in us we pray
Unveil why we’re made
Come set our hearts ablaze with hope
Like wildfire in our very souls
Holy Spirit come invade us now
We are Your Church
We need Your power
In us

We seek Your kingdom first
We hunger and we thirst
Refuse to waste our lives
For You’re our joy and prize
To see the captive hearts released
The hurt; the sick; the poor at peace
We lay down our lives for Heaven’s cause
We are Your church
We pray revive
This Earth

Build Your kingdom here
Let the darkness fear
Show Your mighty hand
Heal our streets and land
Set Your church on fire
Win this nation back
Change the atmosphere
Build Your kingdom here
We pray

Unleash Your kingdom’s power
Reaching the near and far
No force of hell can stop
Your beauty changing hearts
You made us for much more than this
Awake the kingdom seed in us
Fill us with the strength and love of Christ
We are Your church
We are the hope
On Earth
