Lyric Spotlight: Tremble


Andres Figueroa, Hank Bentley, Mariah McManus, and Mia Fieldes


The verses of this song reference two incredibly powerful passages of scripture, both of which are reminders that the God we serve is to be reverenced and worshipped. In the first verse, we remember Jesus sound asleep on troubled waters while the ship’s other passengers panicked in fear. When they woke Jesus, knowing the danger they were in, He simply rebuked the wind and raging waters and they stilled. (Read in Luke 8:22-25)

The second verse of the song brings us to a unique and inspiring portion of scripture found in the book of the prophet Ezekiel, the 37th chapter. Though it’s not my usual “go-to” I absolutely LOVE reading this passage in THE MESSAGE Bible! I’ve read it in several versions even as I write this entry.


Then in the chorus and the bridge of the song, we sing of the name of Jesus and who He IS - not just who He was in those old passages, but who He IS and forever will be! For those passages are found in the living Word of God, which is as relevant today as it has always been. We sing of His power, His light, and His eternal worthiness to be praised!! I love that this song takes us all the way back to the days of Ezekiel and to the days of Jesus walking on the earth, but makes it so clear that His message has NEVER changed! JESUS still makes darkness tremble, still silences fear, still cannot be overcome, and is a name that will FOREVER be lifted up!

I once heard worship described as “how we see God and our response to who we know Him to be.” Tremble is a song sung to directly to the Lord and not just about Him. We are acknowledging who we know Him to be and declaring it with boldness. We are singing out in faith over any circumstance that would tempt us to allow fear to rule us. Our trust can be given to Him completely and all praise belongs to Him. This we sing.

In Him,

Peace, bringing it all to peace

The storm surrounding me

Let it break at Your name

Still, call the sea to still

The rage in me to still

Every wave at Your name

Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble

Jesus, Jesus, You silence fear

Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble

Jesus, Jesus

Breathe, then call these bones to live

Call these lungs to sing

Once again, I will praise

Your name is a light that the shadows can't deny

Your name cannot be overcome

Your name is alive forever lifted high

Your name cannot be overcome
