Exalting Encouragement



Tune: Monks Gate

('He who would valiant be')

Psalm 99

********

The LORD reigns, let people

Tremble, [be]'fore Him fall

He sits [be]'tween cherubim

There be none like Him

And let the earth be moved

His power He has proved

The LORD in Zion great

He of royal state

 

He high above all people

Let them praise, and call

On His name, it awesome

And holy, here come

To Him, He strong in power

He loves judgement each hour

Equity, righteousness

He does to us bless

 

The LORD our God exalt

He without a fault

Worship at His footstool we

For He is holy

Moses, Aaron among

His priests, let praise be sung

Samuel midst them who call

On His great name all

 

They called to Him, He heard

Tended to their word

Spake from cloudy pillar

They did to Him stir

Kept His commands, statutes

And showed forth His good fruits

In lives that did obey

And follow His way

 

You answered, LORD, your people

Forgave, heard their call

Though you did take vengeance

On evil deeds thence

So the LORD God exalt

He holy, without fault

Here at His holy hill

Seek now His good will

          The Lord does reign over all the EARTH
          Even when : The Earth quakes
          And the fires rage through the Canyons
          And floods inundate the Lowlands
          And MEN & their Creations are laid low
          GOD is Lord & Master over all the EARTH ~ AMEN

          Blessings to YOU and Precious Puppy
