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”
