Fast rising Gospel music minister, Nd Chris has released his debut single titled ‘’Highly Exalted’’. ND Chris whose full name is Ugwuoke Ndubuisi Christian hails from Enugu state, Nigeria. Nd Chris studied Agricultural and Bio-resource Engineering at the Enugu State University of science and Technology (ESUT).
ND Chris developed keen interest in music and would always sing at any given opportunity. The interest became passion but it was not to be without strict aversion as his staunch Anglican parents frowned at it and would not offer their supports.
‘’It was on a Sunday evening when I was studying the scripture that the inspiration first came.
As I read the book of Daniel, something struck me the moment I got to chapter 3:25. God became the fourth man in the midst of the burning fiery furnace which had Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their heads singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire on their skins. God proved his mightiness and even king Nebuchadnezzar acknowledged it by singing; how great are His signs! And how mighty are His wonders; His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom and His dominion is from generation to generation in chapter (Daniel 4: 1-3)
That was the generation of the first line in the song; Your kingdom is an everlasting throne.
Further studies brought more inspirations. The story of Hannah as recorded in 1 Samuel touched my soul deeply leading to the second line; For the pillars of the earth are yours (1 Samuel 2:8).
Ultimately, Psalm 136 gave me the song. After carefully studying these scripture passages, I was more than convinced that there is nothing too hard for God to do. Absolutely nothing. He made the heavens and the earth out of nothing and gives food to all flesh.
Then, I imagined the true nature of God and His faithfulness and worshipped him. However, on the course of my worship, these great words from the Holy book became lyrics and the lyrics became song.
It pays to serve God for He is ever faithful to His people and his mercy endures forever. Let the whole world arise and worship Yahweh M’kadesh (God our sanctifier) for He is incomparable, indefatigable, impeccable and indomitable. Immortal king of glory, be thou highly exalted’’. – ND CHRIS
