Inspired by author CS Lewis UK band Lion of Judah released their brand new single "Only Man In The World" on Saturday.
The song was inspired by a CS Lewis address in which he explained the idea that God has infinite attention. God does not have to divide his time and attention between each of his children, in fact, it is quite the opposite; we are as much alone with him as if we were the only thing he ever created. Lewis goes on to say, "when Christ died he died for you, just as if you were the only man in the world".
"Only Man In The World" is a celebration of the remarkable closeness that we have with God, and a victory song over Satan whose cause is utterly devastated by the love of the Father.
About the band
Then one of the elders said to me, "Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals." We love God, and we love music. Our passion is to use the gifts God has given us to his glory. Our hope is to write music which comforts, encourages, and inspires.
We aim to write lyrics which talk honestly about living as a Christian in a broken world. There is beauty, and there is struggle, but ultimately we can say ‘it is well with my soul’ no matter the circumstances we face. The astonishing beauty of the gospel, that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us; we think that’s worth singing about!
