A forceful blues rock song about Paul's dramatic conversion on the road to Damascus. One of the first tracks on the album to be completed, and one I would still like to rework if I get the chance.


I was breathing out murder,
I was seething with rage,
I was plotting disaster,
For the ones in the Way
I was stunned by the brightness
And by what I'd become
I was cornered by greatness,
With nowhere to run
But I saw your glory,
And it's brighter than the sun

I encountered a man
Who had rose from the dead
He left my religion
All tattered in shreds
My world was destroyed
A new life had begun
And I put my faith
In Christ Jesus the Son,
Because I saw his glory
And it's brighter than the sun

Seen your glory,
Seen your glory

I waited to hear you
And the visions they came
Of suffering glory
And preaching his name
I will follow you Jesus
Till your will be done
I will trust in your stength
Until my race is run
Cause I see your glory
And its brighter than the sun
