{Text: Psalm 92:1-5}

I love music. I love singing in the car, while I cook, rocking my daughter, while I vacuum: you name a place, and I bet I’ve sung there. Sometimes when I think about the ratio of scripture I’ve memorized to lyrics? It’s quite embarrassing. I have so much brain space occupied by lyrics of music – some uplifting, sure, but some I would rather not name.

Today I want to challenge us as a community. In the comments, twitter, facebook, or Instagram, share a favorite song–a song that glorifies Him, the Most High, Lord of Lords, Kings of Kings. If you can find a song that uses scripture, awesome! If it’s a song about being thankful, great!

Here’s the challenge: begin your day with songs that center your heart on Him. Continue your day with music and lyrics that bring Him glory. And end your day with the same. Play a song before you eat dinner as a family. Turn on a few songs while you clean up the kitchen or fold laundry. Use these seemingly mundane moments to bring your focus and attention back to Him.

Don’t know what to sing? Enjoy the lyrics to a favorite hymn below!

 

All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name

All hail the power of Jesus’ name!
Let angels prostrate fall;
bring forth the royal diadem,
and crown him Lord of all.
Bring forth the royal diadem,
and crown him Lord of all.

Ye chosen seed of Israel’s race,
ye ransomed of the fall,
hail him who saves you by his grace,
and crown him Lord of all.
Hail him who saves you by his grace,
and crown him Lord of all.

Let every kindred, every tribe
on this terrestrial ball,
to him all majesty ascribe,
and crown him Lord of all.
To him all majesty ascribe,
and crown him Lord of all.

O that with yonder sacred throng,
we at his feet may fall!
We’ll join the everlasting song,
and crown him Lord of all.
We’ll join the everlasting song,
and crown him Lord of all.

Text: Edward Perrronet, 1779; alt. St. 4 John Rippon, 1787
