I love Christmas music! I mean, I really love Christmas music. So today’s Worship Wednesday song begins 5 weeks of songs that center around the birth of our Savior.

Today’s song is entitled “He Who Is Mighty” from Sovereign Grace Music.

The first verse says this:

Oh, the mercy our God has shown
To those who sit in death’s shadow
The sun on high pierced the night
Born was the Cornerstone

The chorus echoes with these words:

He Who is mighty has done a great thing
Taken on flesh, conquered death’s sting
Shattered the darkness and lifted our shame
Holy is His name

The songwriters looked at Isaiah 9:2-7 & Luke 1:46-49 for the inspiration for this song.

Isaiah 9:2-7 (ESV)

2 The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light;
those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone.
3 You have multiplied the nation; you have increased its joy; they rejoice before you as with joy at the harvest, as they are glad when they divide the spoil.
4 For the yoke of his burden, and the staff for his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor,
you have broken as on the day of Midian.
5 For every boot of the tramping warrior in battle tumult and every garment rolled in blood will be burned as fuel for the fire.
6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.

I hope you enjoy today’s Worship Wednesday song and I hope that you worship HIM today because He is the one who “conquered death’s sting … Holy Is His Name”

Today’s Worship Wednesday song comes to us from the group All Sons & Daughters and is entitled “Great Are You Lord”.

The Bible tells us:

Jeremiah 10:6
There is none like you, O Lord;
you are great, and your name is great in might.
Psalm 104:1
Bless the Lord, O my soul! Lord my God, you are very great!
You are clothed with splendor and majesty,
As we begin preparing for the Thanksgiving holiday, may we always remember that every breath we are given is a gift from God and we should those breathes to praise & worship Him.
I hope you are encouraged today through this song and I hope that you take the time to worship our GREAT GOD today!

 

It has been a little over a month since I posted a Worship Wednesday song, and for that I am sorry. I was off for several weeks and getting ready for that was just crazy.

So, here we go!

Today’s Worship Wednesday song comes from Keith & Kristin Getty (modern-day hymn writers) entitled “The Lord Is My Salvation”. In the book of Psalm we read:

For God alone my soul waits in silence; from Him comes my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.

Psalm 62:1-2

We must understand that without the grace of God, we are nothing more than sinful, depraved sinner destined for an eternity in hell.

BUT GOD! (I love these two words!!!!!!)

This song starts out with these words:

The grace of God has reached for me. And pulled me from the raging sea, and I am safe on this solid ground – The Lord is my salvation!

The song builds to the tag with the words:

Glory be to God the Father, glory be to God the Son, glory be to God the Spirit, the Lord is my salvation!

I hope you find this song encouraging today and it causes us to understand a little more clearly that without HIM we are nothing! He is our God, our Sustainer, our Rock, our Redeemer, our Savior, our Provider, our Healer – and HE is our SALVATION!

Today’s Worship Wednesday song takes us back to 2012 as the Gaither Vocal Band sings “I Believe In A Hill Called Mount Calvary”.

The following excerpt is from Wikipedia:

CalvaryGolgotha, and also Gagulta (Aramaicܓܓܘܠܬܐ‎‎), was, according to the Gospels, a site immediately outside Jerusalem’s walls where Jesus was said to have been crucified.[1]Golgotha(s) (GreekΓολγοθᾶς) is the Greek transcription in the New Testament of the Aramaic term Gagultâ. The Bible translates the term to mean place of [the] skull, which in Greek is Κρανίου Τόπος (Kraníou Tópos), and in Latin is Calvariæ Locus, from which the English word Calvary is derived.

As you go through your day, don’t forget what was done for you on the cross at Calvary!

Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe.

Sin has left a crimson stain; He washed it white as snow!
