Lyrical Challenge

Many thanks to Valleygirlwalking for nominating me for the Three Day Lyrical Challenge! Day 1, here I go!

The Rules

1. Thank the person who nominated you. Thank you once again, Valleygirlwalking
2. Share one of your favorite songs/lyrics one at a time for three days.
3. Nominate three other bloggers each day. (Or one, one is probably enough)

Nomination

Today, I nominate GypsyRD Her tagline is, “Exploring the wonders of food one bite at a time” and she is definitely doing that. She is constantly teaching me new things about food and how to eat! I am constantly in awe of the recipes she comes up with! Her creativity shines SUPER bright in the kitchen!

The Song

Revelation Song

There is so much to say about this awesome song! It is one of a limited number of songs that really portray the complete awesomeness of our God. I think it does this so well because most of the lyrics are actual scripture! As the title suggests, most of this scripture is found in the book of Revelation. What better portrays God’s awesomeness than the Word itself?

Revelation 1:8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega- the beginning and the end,”  says the Lord God. “I am the one who is, who always was, and who is still yet to come, the Almighty One.”

Revelation 4:3-5 “The one sitting on the throne was as brilliant as gemstones-jasper and carnelian. And the glow of an emerald circled his throne like a rainbow. Twenty-four thrones surrounded him, and twenty-four elders sat on them. They were all clothed in white and had gold crowns on their heads. And from the throne came flashes of lightening and the rumbles of thunder…”

Revelation 4:8  “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty– the one who always was, who is, and who is still to come.”

Revelation 5:12-13 “And they sang in a mighty chorus: The Lamb is worthy-the Lamb who was killed. He is worthy to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing.” And then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea. They also sang: “Blessing and honor and glory and power belong to the one sitting on the throne and to the Lamb forever and ever.”

 

 

The first time I heard this song, it was in a church I was visiting. It was being sung by my now, very good friend, Blair and her husband Danny. It’s very special to me because that song helped draw my husband back to church and ultimately to God. When he was drawn back to church, I was still very reluctant. I had experienced a deep hurt at our previous church, and I was still harboring anger about it. Thankfully, God softened my heart, and working through this song, brought me back to him.

It’s been years since that happened, and my husband is now my ex husband. This song still holds a very special place in my heart. It always reminds me of how God drew me back after all my anger and rebellion. My hope for others is that it will have the same effect. If there is one who is capable, it is the God who is worthy of all the praise expressed by this song.

The Lyrics

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Holy, holy is Thee
Sing a new song to Him who sits on
Heaven’s mercy seat
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Holy, holy is He
Sing a new song to Him who sits on
Heaven’s mercy seat
Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty
Who was and is and is to come
With all creation I sing praise to the King of kings
You are my everything and I will adore You
Clothed in rainbows of living color
Flashes of lighting rolls of thunder
Blessing and honor strength and glory and power be
To You the only one who’s King
Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty
Who was and is and is to come
With all creation I sing praise to the King of kings
You are my everything and I will adore You
Filled with wonder awestruck wonder
At the mention of Your name
Jesus Your name is power, breath and living water
Such a marvelous mystery
Oh, You’re worthy, mystery
You are worthy
Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty
Who was and is and is to come
With all creation I sing praise to the King of kings
You are my everything and I will adore You, I will adore You
There are a lot of different artists who sing this song, but Kari Jobe is probably my favorite.
