A Song to Our Strong God!
Did David and his boys know how to light up the night?
I think so-o-o-o-o-o
An Asaph Psalm
1 -5 "A song to our strong God!"
now - - SHOUT!
"a shout to the God of Jacob!"
Ready? Bring in the choir...
"Anthems from the choir,"
one... two... three... four...
"music from the band,"
Come in strings...
"sweet sounds from lute and harp,"
"Trumpets and trombones and horns:"
"it's festival day, a feast to God!"
A day decreed by God,
solemnly ordered by the God of Jacob."
On the beat!
1 -5 "A song to our strong God! a shout to the God of Jacob! Anthems from the choir, music from the band, sweet sounds from lute and harp, Trumpets and trombones and horns: it's festival day, a feast to God! A day decreed by God, solemnly ordered by the God of Jacob. He commanded Joseph to keep this day so we'd never forget what he did in Egypt. I hear this most gentle whisper from One I never guessed would speak to me: 6 -7 "I took the world off your shoulders, freed you from a life of hard labor. You called to me in your pain; I got you out of a bad place. I answered you from where the thunder hides, I proved you at Meribah Fountain."
Or on a more majestic note...
1 -2 "God is King, robed and ruling,
God is robed and surging with strength.
And yes, the world is firm, immovable,
Your throne ever firm—you're Eternal!
3 -4 Sea storms are up, God,
Sea storms wild and roaring,
Sea storms with thunderous breakers.
Stronger than wild sea storms,
Mightier than sea-storm breakers,
Mighty God rules from High Heaven.
5 What you say goes—it always has.
"Beauty" and "Holy" mark your palace rule,
God, to the very end of time."
Music to exalt God has been going on since before the creation of the world...
