Centricity Music recording artist Jason Gray releases the official lyric video for "Glory Days", which can be viewed below. The track released earlier this month (August 7) to digital and streaming outlets globally. The song goes for radio adds next month and is the first single from the third volume of his three-part album, Order Disorder Reorder, which will be available Oct. 2.

“I love the way the two different uses of ‘glory’ play together in these verses,” says Gray, referencing 2 Cor. 3:18 and Romans 5:3-4 as the inspiration for his new single. “It got me thinking about the phrase ‘glory days’ and how we tend to think of the glory days as a charmed time in our life when everything was perfect and trouble-free. But as I read those verses, and elsewhere in scripture, it’s clear that the difficult days are when God gets his best work done in us; as suffering produces perseverance, perseverance, character, and character hope [Rom. 5:3-4]. I wondered: what if our glory days are actually the days of trouble and struggle that God uses to transform me ‘from glory to glory?’ [2 Cor. 3:18]

I’ve been longing for what I thought were the glory days
Back when my life felt so easy
Anywhere but here would be a better place
Caught up California dreaming

I know my heart can get carried away
On a hindsight holiday
But standing in the middle of the rain right here
It’s so clear

These are my glory days
These are my glory days
Busted and broken, but finally open
Wider than an empty grave
This is the good life now
Found it where I fell down
Shattered in pieces, but thank you Jesus
These are my, these are my glory days

The hard times are where you get the best of me
Yeah, this is where we turn the corner
I’m becoming more than I ever dreamed
In the glory days of my reorder

You make my heart stronger when it breaks
Cuz when I fall, I fall into Your grace
Standing in the middle of the pain right here
It’s so clear

You take me higher
When I walk through fire
Hallelujah, hallelujah these are my glory days
You make me stronger
When the night is longer
Hallelujah, hallelujah these are my glory days

Right where I’m at
The good with the bad
I’m not looking back
As long as I have you these are my glory days
