Essential Songs:The Army Of The Chosen One by Sleeping Giant

sleeping giant praying

Sleeping Giant may seem like a hardcore band on the surface.  They have down-tuned guitars, scream vocals, and tough looks.  One moment spent beyond that surface reveals a band that truly loves God and wants to spread His love through music. Though the approach is very extreme, the themes an lyrics of this band rival most groups leading worship in churches today. In fact, that is what Sleeping Giant does, they lead worship. They lead worship to a group of people who don’t know how to relate to a traditional church, and they lead worship with righteous anger and energy.

This is most apparent in their song “The Army Of The Chosen One”, a plead to God concerning the lack of conviction in His people, and willingness to wait and see the final outcome.

Opening prayer:
Lord we are asking for a generation to arise, that will not fall, that will not fall, that they would not give themselves to drugs, they would not give themselves to sex, they would not give themselves to others. Lord, that they would give themselves to You. Lord, we are asking that you would release the apostolical generation, that they would go out into the nations and they call forth those to love You and to serve You all the days of their lives, and know that wherever they go that they take the gospel and the love of Jesus, that in all things they would love You, they love You unrelenting, not holding back, nothing but that they would love you Jesus.

An army composed of walking dead,
of willing hearts,
in this our day of struggle.
We speak with fire,
we break all chains, the foolish bonds of carnal mind far beneath us.
We see the leader transfigured light,
He calls us forward,
in that moment receive.
Gives us a new name,
on stones of white,
and then we stand commissioned, searching for the valiant more to come.
(Oh …we’re rising, calling out your name)
Chosen ones! (And you will hear our anthem raise)
Chosen ones! (So answer us in truth) Answer me!

Ryan Clark of Demon Hunter: I know their faces.
I hear their names,
reveal their future, warriors of regeneration.
I’ve seen their journey.
I’ve felt their pain.
I’ve reached into each shame-filled, dark and failed existence.
I see them rising my crest in heart, sealed to my vision
anchored deep within each man.
The day approaches, each life will close.
The awesome day we see the Lion and the Lamb.
(Oh …we’re rising, calling out your name)
Chosen ones! (And you will hear our anthem raise)
Chosen ones! (So answer us in truth) Answer me!

Father where is the army I’ve seen in my visions.
It’s the generation the dragon has feared in his dreams.
Father where is the army I’ve seen in my visions.
We are the generation the dragon has feared in his dreams, his nightmares!
GLORIA! Soon we will find out who are the real revolutionaries.
GLORIA! Someday we will see who’s in this thing for real!
