Looking Up

“Looking Up” – Rev. Benjamin Wines

The Lord is King, He is robed in majesty;
The Lord is robed, He is girded with strength.
He has established the world;
It shall never be moved;
Your throne is established from of old;
You are from everlasting.
The floods have lifted up,
O Lord, the floods have lifted up their voice;
The floods lift up their roaring.
More majestic than the thunders of mighty waters,
More majestic than the waves of the sea,
Majestic on high is the Lord!
Your decrees are very sure;
Holiness befits your house, O Lord, forevermore.

Chosen

Chosen – Rev. Benjamin J. Wines

O sing to the Lord a new song, for He has done marvelous things.
His right hand and His holy arm have gotten Him victory.
Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth;
Break forth into joyous song and sing praises.
Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre,
With the lyre and the sound of melody.
With trumpets and the sound of the horn
Make a joyful noise before the Lord.
Let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
The world and those who live in it.
Let the floods clap their hands;
Let the hills sing together for joy
At the presence of the Lord, for He is coming to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with equity.

First

From You comes my praise in the great congregation;
My vows I will pay before those who fear Him.
The poor shall eat and be satisfied; those who seek Him shall praise the Lord.
May your hearts live forever!
All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the Lord;
And all the families of the nations shall worship before Him.
For dominion belongs to the Lord,
And He rules over the nations.
To Him, indeed, shall all who sleep in the earth bow down;
Before Him shall bow all who go down to the dust, and I shall live for Him.
Posterity will serve Him;
Future generations will be told about the Lord,
And proclaim His deliverance to a people yet unborn,
Saying that He has done it.

Can You Hear Me Now?

“Can You Hear Me Now?’ – Dr. Bill Pyle

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. – from Psalm 23
