I have not wrote as much lately because I have been busy packing our house for our move to New Jersey. However, I thought I would take the time to share with you another one of my favorite worship songs which happens to be a rather contemporary chorus.
The song I am thinking of is Blessed be the Lord God Almighty, written by a man named Bob Fitts. I first heard this song when I was a student in the Harding University School of Biblical Studies and on Thursday evenings there would be a student led devotional held in the rotunda of the McInteer Bible and Missions Center. The chorus of students singing this song would echo, leaving the hair on the back of my neck raised. However, whenever I hear/sing this hymn I am reminded that God whom I serve along with all other Christians is the Eternal God, that he alone reigns, and to his kingdom there will be no end. It makes me want to praise God all the more. So here are the words to this chorus:
Father in heaven, how we love you.
We lift your Name in all the earth.
May your kingdom, be established in our praises,
As your people declare your mighty works.
Blessed be the Lord God Almighty
Who was and is, and is, to come.
Blessed be the Lord God Almighty.
Who reigns forever more.
