SONG OF THE WEEK|| New Wine By Hillsong Worship

It is often said that no one pours a new wine into an old wineskin if the person doesn’t want o lose all the new wine.

In the crushing,in the pressing LyricsWelcome to another Song of the Week Moment with me and I’m so elated that you are reading this. If you are an ardent reader of the blog, you’d have noticed my love for the band Hillsong. I can’t explain my love for this band and I would be more than elated if they eventually come to Nigeria for a concert and I know that there are a handful of us waiting patiently for them to come to our Nigerian most popular gathering known as The Experience.

This song New Wine is one of the songs from Hillsong Worship lastest album called There is More and I have come to a conclusion that this is my favourite song in the album not because all of them aren’t soul lifting but because this particular song just resonated with my recent desires. In my usual curious state, I decided to do a personal research about New Wine just to have a better understanding of what the songwriter was thinking about when s/he was penning thoughts down for this song and my results have helped me.

The first thing I found out is that wine is an important symbol in the Bible, it represents joy, celebration, festivity and also expresses the abundant blessings of God. When Jesus turned water into wine at the wedding of Galilee, his intent was to ensure that the celebrants were not stranded because their guests weren’t served with wine. Wine is also used specifically for communion because it symbolises that fellowship and the celebration of our salvation in the kingdom of heaven.

For me, Hillsong Worship New Wine is a call for us to totally surrender our will to the father. if we are genuinely born again, we cannot live our lives in the same old way we have been living and expect to be able to carry a fresh anointing from God. The same way new wine cannot stay in old wineskin so also our new life in Christ does not permit our own lifestyle. The opening lines “In the crushing and in the pressing, you are making new wine” signifies that sometimes we are being refined and it’s hard because we can’t see the end result and we don’t know to understand the process. Since we did can’t see the result immediately, we feel like we are just going through hell for no reason. This for me is a Rhema and since I understood this, I’ve begun to see my current situation in a different light. Enough of my personal gist, let me bring you the lyrics of this revelational song and a YouTube Rendition of the song.

You are making me a new wine


In the crushing
In the pressing
You are making new wine
In the soil, I now surrender
You are breaking new ground

So I yield to You and to Your careful hand
When I trust You I don’t need to understand

Make me Your vessel
Make me an offering
Make me whatever You want me to be
I came here with nothing
But all You have given me
Jesus bring new wine out of me


In the crushing
In the pressing
You are making new wine
In the soil, I now surrender
You are breaking new ground

You are breaking new ground

Crushing and making of new wine by Hillsong

Where there is new wine
There is new power
There is new freedom
The Kingdom is here
I lay down my old flames
To carry Your new fire today
