All Glory

If I can borrow the title of this song I will. A couple of months ago some friends of mine wrote this song, that in my personal opinion says it all. It’s one of those songs that once it gets in your ears it takes a while to get out. If you know me well enough, or have been around me long enough, you know that happens to me quite often. For example, as far back as I can remember, and I don’t know why ….when I am working with full focus on a project, I start whistling ” Strangers in the Night”…haha I don’t even know all the lyrics but its stuck in there, this is one of  those songs. The title is “All Glory”, I mean you can’t go wrong with that title, but the verses talk about the Greatness of our King Jesus Christ, and the fact that no one, not a single person can escape the awe-ness of Him. Here is a quick pass at Verse 2….

Every blessing, every right, every trial, every fight weʼll see,  the greatness of our King.  Kings and Queens and royalty, presidents and highest priests will sing,  the greatness of our King.

The Chorus goes on to say….

All glory be to God, all glory be to God,  we will shout, we will sing, all glory be to God

I think David said  it best in Psalm 145

Psalm 145[a]

A psalm of praise. Of David.

1 I will exalt you, my God the King;
I will praise your name for ever and ever.
2 Every day I will praise you
and extol your name for ever and ever.

3 Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise;
his greatness no one can fathom.
4 One generation commends your works to another;
they tell of your mighty acts.
5 They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty—
and I will meditate on your wonderful works.[b]
6 They tell of the power of your awesome works—
and I will proclaim your great deeds.
7 They celebrate your abundant goodness
and joyfully sing of your righteousness.

8 The LORD is gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger and rich in love.

9 The LORD is good to all;
he has compassion on all he has made.
10 All your works praise you, LORD;
your faithful people extol you.
11 They tell of the glory of your kingdom
and speak of your might,
12 so that all people may know of your mighty acts
and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.
13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
and your dominion endures through all generations.

The LORD is trustworthy in all he promises
and faithful in all he does.[c]
14 The LORD upholds all who fall
and lifts up all who are bowed down.
15 The eyes of all look to you,
and you give them their food at the proper time.
16 You open your hand
and satisfy the desires of every living thing.

17 The LORD is righteous in all his ways
and faithful in all he does.
18 The LORD is near to all who call on him,
to all who call on him in truth.
19 He fulfills the desires of those who fear him;
he hears their cry and saves them.
20 The LORD watches over all who love him,
but all the wicked he will destroy.

21 My mouth will speak in praise of the LORD.
Let every creature praise his holy name
for ever and ever.

Thanks guys for writing such an incredible song, I look forward to singing it this Sunday.
