When the Holy Ones Assemble

Photo Credit Below Text

When the holy ones assemble, praise is raised to God.

No one in the heavens holds a torch unto the Lord.

In that council God is feared, the great and awesome mas-ter.

If you asked them, “Who is greater?” no one would reply.

_____

God of hosts, who is as mighty as you are, O Lord?

Faithfulness surrounds you God. You rule the raging sea.

You can still the rising waves; you’re stronger than all dan-gers.

Enemies don’t stand a chance you scatter them abroad. 

_____

All the heavens and the earth belong, O Lord, to you.

Everything created and what’s re-created, too.

There’s no place unknown to y-ou; mountains, valleys praise your name.

You are mighty, strong to save, and worthy of our praise.

_____

Righteousness and justice are the hallmarks of your rule.

Steadfast love and faithfulness belong, O Lord, to you.

Happy are all people who walk in your light, O God, each day.  

In your love we live securely, shielded all the way.
