Songs for Worship

Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.  Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.

Psalm 33:1-3 (NIV)

 

   

All Creation Worships Your Glory

 

Background

This is a song I wrote while on a personal retreat at a cabin near Lake Tahoe. Every time I go to the Sierras, I am struck by the rugged and lively beauty of the mountains, trees, and water. Scripture speaks of creation worshiping its creator. The mountains and sky praise God with every moment of their existence.

But what about us?  Are our lives marked by continual worship in all that we do?  Is our existance devoted to praise?  When you look at it this way, the creation does a better job at this than we do.  So this song is an invitation to see in creation the continual praise that the Spirit would work in our lives.

Lyrics

Verse 1
In the wind upon the mountains
In the whisper through the trees
In the water's calm there is a song
All creation on its knees

Verse 2
The waterfalls are praising
As the streams lift up their voice
The rocks and sky praise You on high
For You made them to rejoice

Prechorus
Every bird and bear, every towering tree
Lifts a chorus to You in this praise symphony

Chorus
From mountain high to valley below
All creation worships Your glory
Oh let my life your praises show
To worship Your holy Name

Verse 3
From the chill of early morning
To the quiet of the eve
Through all my days I'm called to praise
The One who died for me.

Verse 4
O Lord let my life sing
Like the mountains and the trees
Let me worship you in all that I do
Your new creation be

Prechorus
With the birds and bears, and the towering trees
Let my life lift to You this praise symphony

Chorus
From mountain high to valley below
All creation worships Your glory
Oh let my life your praises show
To worship Your holy Name
