Why we Worship

PSALM 47

Clap your hands, all peoples!
  Shout to God with loud songs of joy!
For the LORD, the Most High, is to be feared,
  a great king over all the earth.
He subdued peoples under us,
  and nations under our feet.
He chose our heritage for us,
  the pride of Jacob whom he loves.

God has gone up with a shout,
  the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.
Sing praises to God, sing praises!
  Sing praises to our King, sing praises!
For God is the King of all the earth;
  sing praises with a psalm!

Why Sing?

God reigns over the nations;
  God sits on his holy throne.
The princes of the peoples gather
  as the people of the God of Abraham.
For the shields of the earth belong to God;
  he is highly exalted!

Lyrics | Description

"Forever with the Lord!"
Amen! So let it be!
Life from His death!
We live in hope of immortality
Here in this body spent
I with creation groan
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent
A day's march nearer home

My Father's house on high
Invades this earthly sphere
By means of faith's foreseeing eye
Those golden gates appear
And then my spirit faints
To reach that land I love
The bright inheritance of saints
Jerusalem above

Clouds form to intervene
And all my prospect flies
Like Noah's dove I flit between
Rough seas and stormy skies
In time the clouds depart
The winds and waters cease
And there above my gladdened heart
Expands the bow of peace

"Forever with the Lord!"
Forever in His will
The promise of that faithful word
Lord, here in me fulfill
With you at my right hand
Then I shall never fail
Uphold me Lord and I shall stand
Through grace I will prevail

So when my latest breath
Breaks through the veil of pain
By death I shall escape from death
And life eternal gain
That resurrection word
That shout of victory
Once more, "FOREVER WITH THE LORD!
AMEN! SO LET IT BE!"
