In the new single, Sarai Korpacz continues innovating within the faith-based music space through her combination of ear-catching melodies, scripture-inspired lyrics, and thought-provoking videography.
A standout among Korpacz’s catalog, she and her collaborators specifically created “Scepter” in hymn form to cultivate a sense of reverence and reflection in the listener. The subdued style and relaxed tempo make for an introspective devotional song built around moving vocal arrangements and contemporary instrumentation.
In the lyric video that accompanies “Scepter,” the song’s words and choral backing pair with evocative imagery of chapels, pews, stained glass windows, and architectural features from a range of sacred Christian settings.
The song takes inspiration from James 2:13, which states that mercy triumphs over judgment. Korpacz elaborates, “It’s a call for reverence to God. He is a mighty God, and yet He is merciful and gracious and kind.”
The song is produced by Bonel Birmingham with backing vocals from Wilkinson Theodore and Palmyre Seraphin.
