Most High

O LORD, Most High, in majesty,
What wonder?
What splendor?
What beauty meets our eyes?
In majesty,
In majesty, Most High.

O LORD, Most High, be exalted,
Hear our hearts,
Hear our songs,
Hear as our praises rise,
Be exalted,
Be exalted, Most High.

O LORD, Most High, You won’t be moved,
In wisdom,
In fairness,
In wrath Your justice flies.
You won’t be moved,
You won’t be moved, Most High.

O LORD, Most High, we praise Your Name,
For Your pow’r
For Your strength,
For Your grace and new life,
We praise Your Name,
We praise Your Name, Most High!

Behind the lines

In Psalm 21 the anointed king (David) sings to the King and rightly acknowledges the victory over His enemies belongs to the strength of the Most High. In the last verse (v13), he includes everyone so all the people can praise the Most High.

For when the king sings to the Most High King all the people rejoice and sing along.

O LORD, in your strength the king rejoices,
and in your salvation how greatly he exults!
(Psalm 21:1 ESV)

For the king trusts in the LORD,
and through the steadfast love of the Most High he shall not be moved.
(Psalm 21:7 ESV)

Be exalted, O LORD, in your strength!
We will sing and praise your power.
(Psalm 21:13 ESV)

Be Still

Though tears will flood,
As the whole earth shakes,
And mountains fall into the sea,
God is my Refuge and Strength.

Be still, my soul,
Be still, and know,

I AM – The LORD,
Is my Refuge and Strength,
My Help in trouble’s way,
Trust the LORD of hosts,
Who breaks fears and woes,
And turns sorrows to praise.

Though emotions rage,
He utters His voice,
Great struggles and battles cease,
God is my Refuge and Strength.

You reign on the throne,
Sovereign over all,
Whom shall I fear?

Psalm 46, which inspired Martin Luther to write A Mighty Fortress Is Our God.

God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
(Psalm 46:1 ESV)

“Be still, and know that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!”
(Psalm 46:10 ESV)

Rescued (Three Words)

planet-2985148_1920

Sin and death and enemies,
Three words who’ve long hated me,
Jesus, You have conquered these,
You have conquered all of these,
To rescue me?

Rescued, redeemed, and saved,
Three words to sing now,
And shout beyond the grave.

You are my strength,
Through ev’ry need,
Jesus, You have set me free,
You are the Strength,
Who rescued me,
You rescued me.

My Refuge, Fortress, and Rock,
Three words for the Son of God,
Jesus, You were cursed and mocked,
While You hid me in Your arms,
To rescue me?

Faith and hope and love abide,
Three words live because You died,
Jesus, how could You delight,
How could you delight and die,
To rescue me?

Psalm 18
