‘Light Of Your Grace’ is the brand new release from band Citizens

Writing songs with honesty and artistry – songs that tell true stories of their journeys with Jesus – is the heartbeat of Zach, Brian, Adam and Nathan, who collectively make up the band Citizens. The Seattle-based band has an abundance of talent as musicians and writers, crafting beautiful and engaging songs full of musical creativity and substance, as new release Light Of Your Grace highlights.

The story behind Citizens‘ new song is one of human weakness, vulnerability and grace; after lying to his wife about something, frontman Zach went through days of trying to convince himself it was okay and rationalising, yet the weight of the guilt didn’t get lighter. But when reading 1 John and seeing God’s heart for him, he confessed his mistake and was met with grace. ‘Light Of Your Grace shines hope on our human struggle with honesty – just like this song wouldn’t have been written if Zach didn’t come clean about his shortcoming, we can miss some of God’s most gracious gifts by staying in darkness. He calls us to walk in the light. 

Citizens‘ hope for Light Of Your Grace  is that through it, each of us would know our sin is met with grace. Whether or not the people we’ve hurt come to a place of forgiving us, we can wade through the consequences hand in hand with God who forgives us.

 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.” 1 John 1:7
