dust to glory

(click here to listen or download)

From dust to glory
From death to dawn
Ashes to beauty
brighter than the sun

You've found me holy
You've found me pure
You call me lovely
You call me Yours

From dust to glory
From dust to glory, I have come

You brought me from my death
and gave me life
Yes, You made me to rise...

From dust to glory
From dust to glory, I have come


I wrote this song while listening to a sermon about death and the after-life. The old adage goes, "From ashes to ashes, from dust to dust." Well, that may be true for the rest of the world. But for those of us who claim Jesus as Christ and God, that simply is not the case. For us, it is dust to glory and ashes to beauty brighter than the sun.

Hallelujah. Hallelujah.

Hey, I really like it. It is very driving (or at least could be with some killer drums, or perhaps so wailing leads or maybe some galloping chops)

or maybe some keck styled beats.

duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh (That is the sound of a drum stick repeatedly hitting a snare drum, made popular by the late 90's drummer for the increasingly popular band 'last exit,' jake keck)

and if still don't feel like you've got a grasp on the complexity of jake keck's drumming style...just ask his mom linda about it. she does a dead-on impression.
