about

This four-track single marks a new leg in Jotham David Parker's musical pilgrimage. It combines Gospel choir, 70s rock harmonies, techno-punk melodies and irresistible dance beats that will get you clapping, dancing, and praising. The lyrics combine Biblical paraphrases with literary and pop-culture allusions that remind us that God is the fountain of all beauty and the Truth behind every fantasy. Remember, Gentle Listener, the only things in your life that should be extreme are your love for Jesus Christ and your drum beats.

Track Name: Truth (Shortish Edit)
Chorus 1:
Flights of angels shrink back from your majesty.
You’re the truth behind every fantasy.

Verse 1:
God, you’re the one who gives me extra life,
Eternal save-states in the midst of strife.
My life is hid in Christ with Thee.
(Glory! Hallelujah!)

Christ, you’re the only one to bear the ring.
You’re the only Once and Future King,
Who can reign eternally.
(Glory! Hallelujah!)


God, you keep that squid guy in his watery grave.
You make the fays, leprauns and furies behave.
You put the powers all to shame.
(Glory! Hallelujah!)


Christ, your glory’s terrible, your love is kind;
One touch would heal one glimpse would shatter my mind.
Your feet are bronze your eyes are flame.

Chorus 2:
Sacred, undefiled vistas angels long to see,
Ghost-breathed Undying Ancient Mystery.

Talky:
And remember, Gentle Listener, the only things in your life that should be extreme are your love for Jesus Christ and your drum beats.

Verse 2:
You, you make the rosy-fire of dusk your throne.
The Starhost gather there to serve you alone.
They hear, they praise and they obey.
(Glory! Hallelujah!)


I, I’m invincible in Jesus Mode.
I didn’t even need to type a code.
Your code was final on that day.

You, you make me jump over the bottomless pit.
And I don’t even need to worry a bit.
Your blood has sealed my final phase.
(Glory! Hallelujah!)


I, I don’t need to use a phoenix down,
‘Cause I’ll respawn at the last trumpet sound.
And make the stars shake with your praise.
(Glory! Hallelujah!)


Bridge 1:
Shout all ye people in praise, honor and praise.


Bridge 2:
Ascribe Him all glory and honor and power and riches and wisdom and praise every hour,
In righteousness, holiness, meekness and lowliness, live for Him, sing for Him, give everything for Him.

Final Chorus:
Shining Father, Maker of things concealed and shown,
Remake us, that we might behold thine emerald throne.
