Daily Worship

God deserves our worship. Sometimes I forget this simple fact and I live out my day without a worshipful attitude toward God. Yesterday we were driving out to Ciyanjano with the kids and we were listening to "worship" music. It was such a great reminder of who our God is. Giving God the worship he rightfully owns always puts me back where I need to be. So, there were two songs that were really good reminders for me so I thought I would post the lyrics for all of us to consider. In this first song, the fact that God knows "the depths of our hearts" and still loves us, always moves me. That is truly indescribable love. In the second, I think the description of Jesus as the "perfect lamb that was slain" is always a very powerful metaphor.

Indescribable

From the highest of heights to the depths of the sea
Creation's revealing Your majesty
From the colors of fall to the fragrance of spring
Every creature unique in the song that it sings
All exclaiming

Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are amazing God
All powerful, untameable,
Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God

Who has told every lightning bolt where it should go
Or seen heavenly storehouses laden with snow
Who imagined the sun and gives source to its light
Yet conceals it to bring us the coolness of night
None can fathom

Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name
You are amazing God
All powerful, untameable,
Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God

Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are amazing God
All powerful, untameable,
Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God
Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are amazing God
Incomparable, unchangeable
You see the depths of my heart and You love me the same
You are amazing God
You are amazing God

The Glory of Your Name

It was in the way You came
As a lowly babe
That Your glory was displayed
And it was in the sacrifice
Of the purest life
It was in Your Father’s will obeyed

(chorus)
The perfect Lamb that was slain
And there’s the glory of Your name
No other one, no other way for me to see
You took my place, You are the way
And there’s the glory of Your name
Yes, there’s the glory of Your name

And there is nothing in this world
That could take the place of You
That could take the place of You my Jesus
And there is nothing in this life

That could take the place of
One life, one love
One power to save us all
One hope, One truth
And one glory in it all
One glory in it all

The perfect Lamb that was slain
And there’s the glory of Your name
No other one, on other way for me to see
You took my place, You are the way
And there’s the glory of Your name
Yes, there’s the glory of Your name
