Sunlight – Reilly

Edit: Get my “Sunlight” chords from this post!

This song, Sunlight, is by an alternate/violin Christian rock band named Reilly. I watched their music video of this song and the lyrics really struck me. I was particularly awestruck by the words that I’ve highlighted below…not to mention the music is brilliant! Enjoy :)

You are the treasure that I am after
Some look for riches some look for power
Just give me eyes to behold your beauty
To keep me lost in wonder after wonder

You are the father of every prodigal
running into the arms of sick and soiled souls
You make me whiter than the winter’s snow
You cover over the ashes on the inside

Sunlight, daybreak, chasing all my shadows away

You’re in the whisper between two lovers
igniting passion long after the altar.
You are the reason I sing
You are the reason I sing

Sunlight, daybreak, chasing all my shadows away

You shine a white light into my blind eyes
And now I’ve seen you truly for the first time
This revelation of my desperation
brings me to Calvary, brings me to salvation
You resurrect me, you rearrange me
you make my heart beat to another symphony

You’ve pursued me like you think I’m worth it
And Savior now I know that I do not deserve this

Sunlight, daybreak, chasing all my shadows away.

The lyrics really speak for themselves! By His awesome grace, Christ shows us our great need for him, and this “revelation of our desperation” brings us to the cross, brings us “to salvation” in Him. Thereafter, the Holy Spirit continues to sanctify us (change us to grow in holiness) everyday, rearranging us and making our hearts beat “…to another symphony”. Isn’t that just so awesome and wonderful!!!

        I agree, it’s brilliant!

        Yep, I’m working on them. I have a fairly good idea of the chord sequence; should be done in the next week or so :)

  7. […] Pretty good huh. The section I’ve highlighted above (which is kinda the bridge in this song) reminds me of the bridge in another song, namely, Sunlight by Reilly. […]
