Soli Deo Gloria

MattyTomTom Worship music has a tendency to sound lackluster, using the fact that it's for God's glory as a crutch. Narnia shoves that criticism aside as it stands on its own as top-tier neoclassical power metal. Best in class. Riffs almost as good as God is great! Favorite track: You Are the Air That I Breathe.

    Soli Deo Gloria from 2021 is the band’s second compilation-album.

    Narnia sums up its first 25 years with the compilation album: ’Soli Deo Gloria’, a collection of 30 songs that show the band’s wide range and long experience of being established as one of the best melodic metal bands on the metal scene. Songs from the first album ‘Awakening’ to the latest studio album ‘From Darkness to Light’ along with bonus tracks from different album versions, clearly shows how the band has managed to maintain a high level throughout its history and at the same time, how to hungrily strive for a promising future.

    Meanwhile, the band’s ninth studio album is in the making and scheduled for release in 2022 — this is a great introduction to the band for new listeners, as it is a gold mine for current fans to revisit favorites and discover lesser-known songs.

    ’Soli Deo Gloria’ was released on double-CD, and digitally on November 5th, and distributed by Sound Pollution.

They have said the day is coming soon They have said the day is near now One day is a thousand years, a thousand years, one day Divine perspective versus human pride and knowledge Kingdoms turn to stone Nations burn at the hand of man There's a crack in the sky Knees will bow as the light blinds our eyes Come, see the greatest show in history A rumbling across the sky Kingdoms turn to stone Nations burn at the hand of man There's a crack in the sky Knees will bow as the light blinds our eyes A triumphant return and from darkness we'll turn He has come, we have chosen, it's time Descending from the throne King of kings and Lord of lords Mountains are crumbling, waves rolling high From the horizon, in the blink of an eye A final crescendo, the tide rises high He finally opens the gate in the sky
2.
You're the meaning, on You I'm leaning You're the reason why I'm breathing Every morning, a new dawning Every day, another drawing You have given, I have taken You sacrificed though I've forsaken Always learning, always yearning For Your love, forever reaching for You You are the air that I breathe You are the truth that I seek I believe, I believe in You I've been searching, I've been wanting Confirmation and affection Through the fires, my heart's desires Seeking treasures that I admire My imperfections and introspections Through grace and patience, transformation What I deserve, You have bled Drying all the tears I shed, oh...
3.
Out on a journey Out in the fields across the land Looking for answers Chasing the wind again No one can stop me No one in heaven or on earth Knowing the answers Raising my throne for all to see How long can I hold on Am I down on my knees again? In silence, I wonder From where is my aid to come Gazing out in the sky Through deserts I wander From where is water to flow Has the river run dry? Out of the ashes Into the fire, once again Will I be wiser Will I surrender, once again Yours is the Kingdom All power and glory to You Forever and ever So let it be done, for all to see Father forgive me I am down on my knees again

MNFST 04:26
When black and white are mixed to gray it's time to rise Unpleasant truths are traded for comforting lies Kings and priests with strings attached like marionettes The walls he built to keep us safe are now seen as a threat Rise above the ashes Shine with his living flame Break the silence once and for all I believe in the holy Father Who gave his only Son I believe in the holy Spirit Who raised him from the dead A stormy sea A distant light to guide us home A vivid hope In this world so monochrome An endless love in each drop of blood How can I be ashamed? Die from myself And rise in him Born again to proclaim I'm not ashamed of Jesus Who gave his life for me I believe in the resurrection The King is coming back
5.
He saved us from the war that tore the land And we sing our song to the Holy One Hallelujah, Hallelujah Amen
6.
Here we are, we're on the road again We travel far, to see your smiling faces We bring the music, we'll bring the fire Standing on the solid rock The spirit takes us higher We wanna follow, we wanna go Share the joy, share the living hope We are the people, we are the crowd We are rebels and we sail above it all We rock, we go, we're reaching for the top We rock, we go, we're never gonna stop We rock, we go, we're reaching for the top We rock, we go, we're never gonna stop Turn up the music and play it loud We want to celebrate the victory on the cross
7.
A hunger deep inside wakes me up at night Where are we going Where far away from home Like a blind leading a blind We sail away from all responsibilities For away from home Tearing it down stone by stone Raise an altar of pride, leave the worries behind I still believe in the Maker One by one, we all must bow down I still believe in the Father, the Son and the Fire Burning on, i still believe I still believe Turning the tide Following the winds of change denying Everything we know I've heard enough Your silence is deafening to my ears Did i ever know you? Tearing it down stone by stone Raise an altar of pride, leave the worries behind
8.
Follow me, Follow who? What is new? Will I ever know? I’m seeking confirmation, participation A broader vision Finding out the latest truth Twenty years ago the call To be a voice for the man Who gave it all Jesus Christ, The Son of God The solid Rock, the Lion's roar We are here through it all Get up, cry out on the highest mountain We’re not ashamed, not afraid to fall Stand up and fight for the truth of ages Let us declare freedom, One for all Read your Bible, say a prayer For your brother, it’s time to care We all need salvation On high horses, we´re riding high Riding blind, but still we try Time for redemption Twenty years ago the call To be a voice for the man Who gave it all Jesus Christ, The Son of God The solid Rock, the Lion's roar We are here through it all

Thank You 05:23
Thank You for creation Thank You for Your grace Thank You for the blood, shed upon the cross For showing us Your way, The way I see, I need, I trust, I change Whenever I am near You Lead me through the night As darkness falls, as seasons change Your love remains as others turn away Whenever I am near You Lead me through the night Thank You for the shield of faith Thank You for the sword Thank You for the steel Dividing right from wrong For showing us the way I see, I need, I trust, I change Whenever I am near You Lead me through the night As darkness falls, as seasons change Your love remains as others turn away Whenever I am near You Lead me through the night

Sometimes I feel like I'm drowning Sometimes I'm trapped in a hole I know I need... need Your protection I wish You could take me back home Sail around the world Sailing ships of hope Storm is coming I cling to my rope I'm forgiven My captain set me free On the ocean Shelter me Sometimes I search for an answer Inside of my head can find Nothing that really, really relieves me From pressure, from guilt and from sin Sail around the world Sailing ships of hope Storm is coming I cling to my rope I'm forgiven My captain set me free On the ocean Shelter me

Scared 03:33
Can't sleep at night All I hear is an endless fight A woman's cry, all is destroyed Can't sleep at night All I hear is an endless fight Call the police to make it calm The sound fades away But still it's there In our memories Life isn't fair What can I do Want to be more like You I want to be brave But I'm scared and broken too Still my heart is trying, trying to survive I know the colors, I am not blind But now Your hands are reaching, reaching out to save me Come my child, you shall be free The sound fades away But still it's there In our memories Life isn't fair The sound fades away And we close our eyes Pretend it wasn't there It's easier this way
12.
How long will we carry on To destroy what God has given us Look at yourself, look at the world All is falling apart It's time for a change Unholy rites rule We play the game and we lose Evil in fashion, it's time for reaction We are drifting away from the truth We're fading away Pray for protection Time for reaction We're burning our bridges Then wade across the blood-filled rivers The silence around us, the darkness beneath us And a thousand miles between us We're fading away Pray for protection Time for reaction It's time for a change
13.
Here I am in this world I'm a servant for your name Trying to make a better place I see fear, death, pain and anger People crying in despair The emptiness is growing strong today Into this game Running through fire and water In Christ I am strong My vision is clear You are the reason I live I'm into this game for your name I look around where is the light Shadows all around the world We're getting closer to the end Give me love for my enemies Give me hope for the broken ones Holy spirit, show the the way Time to move on Gotta be strong The road is long It's time to move
14.
There is danger in the air Afraid to face reality Where can we run and where can we hide? Listen to the master's voice inside We are protected in his name You can take our lives, but You can not take our faith We see the evil actions Death is in the air Give us the courage now To rise above it all We serve and pray Our time is here And we believe We're the people of the blood red cross Looking for a scapegoat everywhere "You are the sinner and I am the saint!" Who is the winner of this stupid game? Will we ever learn to see the truth And give our brothers a helping hand This is the cause we will be fighting for
15.
I am waiting for it Longing for the moment When the world will see the truth Few can hear the voice Many hearts are frozen Only the father knows the hour I will be there Stay close to you You're in command I'll follow you until the end Just another day In another world Death will be no more We're united as one Every man will see it They will feel the power When the king is coming back Demons bow their heads Darkness flee away When they must face The creator of life Long live the king of our lives Into the night, into the fire Turn on the lights Demons will bow their heads for the King Angels are singing Out of the night Out of the fire Enter the gate into the kingdom Leaving behind what's holding us down All of our fears, all of our hatred All of our wars, all of our sorrows Dry all your tears Heaven is open Into the light, out of the night Dry all your tears Heaven is open Enter the gate Enter the gate
16.
Getting closer to the end The final chapter has begun You can't run, you can't hide Face the truth, see the signs You are falling from the edge I saw the crisis in your eyes Working hard to survive One more day in fools paradise Enter the gate into the final mystery Forever my soul will rest in peace Leaving the shadows far behind I'm entering the gate of life Break the chains and see the light Yeah, I hope to see you there Don't you see I care for you All to win for you and me Eternal love and peace for free The eternity to win Jesus is the open gate Enter in and you will see The sins are gone, you will free
17.
Where can I run And where can I hide I'm trapped inside can't find my out No place to go home And no one here to carry me I am a lonely soldier I fight my own war Everyone's caught up in themselves My wounded soul staring me down (down down) Into the fire I run Someone out there help me to escape I hear voices from hell so loud and clear Laughing at me I'm back I'm back from hell again But hell is everywhere Back I'm back from hell But hell is everywhere If there's a God in Heaven Have mercy on my fallen soul My demons are hunting me They never seem to leave me alone Inside there are delusions I'm dreaming awake Afraid to fall asleep Bad memories are hunting me If you see me come and rescue me
18.
I've been foolin' around away for a long time Living my life with my own rules once again - Oh no! My storybook is full of colours Memories of my dark past are coming back Dark desires all over the place Lock up the door To my secret room I'm caught in the middle Feel I'm starting to slide Open up my eyes So I can see, so I can breathe, yeah I'm not a hero Just a simple man I am stumbling and falling I need someone to lean on Someone to solve my problems now Strange dreams are following me Wake me up from this nightmare I don't want more sleepless nights Lock up the door To my secret room I feel like a stranger Like a stranger to myself Open up my eyes So I can see, so I can breathe, yeah I'm not a hero Just a simple man Inner sanctum of my soul Only you know my secret room Inner sanctum of my soul Only you can see my reality I see commercials on the TV Promise me a life in luxury Take away all this stupid crap I want a life of quality I need some rest for my tired body & soul
19.
The battle is coming I've been waiting so long Prepared with my golden sword And my body is strong In the name of the Lion Judgement will come Holy fire is burning and I'm ready to fight Brave men are joining the army They will fight for the truth They carry the spirit of the brave They will never surrender, no The witch & the Lion The battle between good & evil See the demons around me They're dancing so wild Trying to hypnotize me I see the lies in their eyes They know the battle is lost Aslanis broken the spell They can't face the truth They will all go to hell (burn) The witch & the Lion The battle between good & evil Now the stonetable is broken The battle is won Forever and ever
20.
Winds are changing In this world today In this century So many men have fallen We are blinded by power & gold Reaching for the top of the mountain All our lives we try Reach the sky to find the reason Since the garden of Eden Eating the forbidden fruit Man wants to go his own way We are screaming no mercy We're lords of this new world Building up an empire Reaching for the top of the mountain We're falling, falling from the throne Keep falling, falling from the stars We're falling, falling from the throne Keep falling, falling from the stars There was a man like you and me He paid the big prize all mankind He sacrificed everything The golden throne belongs to him Winds are changing In this world today Man wants to go his own way
21.
The day has just begun It's autumn time Leaves falling from the trees The wind is blowing and the rain is pouring down Darkness entering my door and it's hard to see The light The law of nature Revolution of mother earth I need to die from my selfish mind The law of nature Revolution of mother earth I need to die from my foolish pride to be alive I'm waiting for the sunrise I'm waiting for a change It's hidden in the dusky shadows Longing for tomorrow but afraid to face the day I'm just an ordinary man In the middle of the storm The day has just begun It's autumn time Leaves falling from the trees
22.
Living Water 03:55
I've been running all my life To find some peace of mind Searching for the treasure everywhere I met Jesus Christ He's the Son Of God He's the One Who healed my broken heart I breathe Your Spirit I breathe Your love Living Water, from the Father Fills my body Now I'm moving on Living Water, from the Father Fills my body Now I'm moving on I cried so many tears For so many years Looking out for real love in my life I met the Holy One Salvation through God's only Son Eternal life for the world today I breathe Your Spirit I breathe Your love Living Water, from the Father Fills my body Now I'm moving on Living Water, from the Father Fills my body Now I'm moving on Living Water, from the Father Fills my body Now I'm moving on Living Water, from the Father Fills my body Now I'm moving on Living Water, from the Father Fills my body Now I'm moving on Living Water, from the Father Fills my body Now I'm moving on
23.
On the road again Saturday morning 10 o'clock Snow is falling We believed in love It should last forever There're so much whys That I can't understand Oh, my Lord from Heaven above Help me Oh, my Lord from Heaven above Give me strength to carry on Lord, give me shelter Every night, every morning Lord, give me shelter All through the pain Lord, give me shelter Every night, every morning Lord, give me shelter All through the pain Let me see the light In the end of this tunnel Oh, lady I want you here by my side Holding your arms Kissing your lips Feeling your body next to mine
24.
The Mission 04:30
My Shining Star Oh, teach me more My heart is bleeding For the lost ones There's so many people So many souls Lost without a warning I can't see them go The wrong direction Your voice is calling Calling on me Lord, here I am The mission My mission I wanna go The final hour Will soon be here We don't know When the bell is ringing The mission My mission I wanna go The way You want me to
25.
Always searching For peace of mind In this world of tragedy Lost and lonely Fooling around Trapped in this evil game Got no strength Got no Love Life is slowly Fading away Broken promises everywhere You're out of control Living hell Fills your brain When you push the needle Into your vein Dangerous game You're playing with your soul Devil's game You're under his control Now my friend It's time to break this evil game Now, my friend It's time to break this circle The time is short Your eyes are blind It's the devil in disguise Hey, wake up and realize He's playing his best cards
26.
Miracle 03:59
You’ve seen the light You felt the love my friend Where are you know? I miss you, don’t you see I know the road is hard for you Sometimes we’re blind, we cannot see Through the misty clouds, There is a light, just believe! I can’t deny, can’t deny what I see It's a miracle, It's God's grace, don't you see? Guardian angels watching over you You're not alone Even of you're far away from home They will wipe away your tears and put your feet on solid ground Life's a gift, It is a miracle, miracle
27.
I'm not looking back Yesterday's far away And I live for my King New chances will come For this lost broken world Holy spirit will guide me I will never give up No, I'm gonna fight 'til the end I wanna live, wanna fight Yeah, long live the King I wanna live, wanna fight Cause in the end we will win I will serve You, my King With my heart and soul No one can stop me now Wanna sing it out loud With my flesh and blood A new day's breaking through
28.
Reaching for life from the cold emptiness Ready for the storms to Blow But You've Heard It All Before You've Seen It All Before But There's Something More I Know Something More Thousands of voices cry out In the night Tells you what's wrong and what's right Never before have you felt such a pain Now is the time to break the chains They Talk About Eternity But You Don't Wanna Live Forever Life Or Death Is The Question You See A Simple Choice Between Heaven And Hell Heaven Heavenly Father Show Me Wonders Could You Give Me A Sign You Carried The Cross For Me You Wasted Your Blood For Me The Head Of The Searpent Lies Crushed On The Ground
29.
He died for me on the cross Took my sins and threw them away He lit the fire in my soul At last I've reached my goal Hand in hand through the fields of fire No More Shadows From The Past My Spirit Free, Free At Last Here I Stand On The Road The Road To Meet My Destiny I'm Not Afraid ?Cause I'm Saved Yes I'm Saved By A Living Truth No more shadows from the past No more shadows from the past No more shadows from the past No more shadows from the past
30.
The night was dark and cold as ice I met that stranger from far beyond my dreams Staring into those eyes I was blinded by a light Paralyzed by the power I fell down on my knees It was never easy to see But now it's so clear as anything can be I felt such warmth in my deserted soul Oh Holy Spirit, come to me I stood there waiting for the dawn My tears were flowing and my sins faded away The one who has the power is the one who breaks the bonds Let the only son Of God cleanse your soul The one who has the power is the one who Breaks the bonds Let the only son of God cleanse your soul Oh Holy Spirit, come to me Come to me
