Praise the Father, Praise the Son

Two weeks ago, we attended a memorable wedding where worship was the theme!   The setting was surreal, as we celebrated not only the beautiful love which drew a young man and woman into an abiding relationship, but more so, the eternal love which draws Jesus’  Bride, us, to Himself–the wedding of all weddings, which God the Father anticipated, prepared, and planned before the foundation of the earth!  

Here is one of the songs we sang together with Bride and Groom.  How fitting, how precious, to praise the Author of Love, the Designer of Marriage with the only gift we can really give Him–the Praise of our lips! 

I uploaded the music to the blue Music Box to the right.   It’s another great one by Chris Tomlin and is from his CD, Hello Love.

 

Praise the Father, Praise the Son

O sovereign God, O matchless King
the saints adore, the angels sing
and fall before the throne of grace
to you belongs the highest praise.

These sufferings, this passing tide
under Your wings I will abide,
and every enemy shall flee;
You are my hope and victory.

Praise the Father, Praise the Son
Praise the Spirit, Three in One,
Clothed in power and in grace
the name above all other names.

To the valley, for my soul;
Thy great descent has made me whole!
Your word, my heart has welcome home,
now peace like water ever flows,

Praise the Father, Praise the Son
Praise the Spirit, Three in One,
Clothed in power and in grace
the name above all other names.

Yours is the kingdom,
Yours is the power.
Yours is the glory forever.

Yours is the kingdom,
Yours is the power.
Yours is the glory forever.

Praise the Father, Praise the Son.
Praise the Spirit, Three in One.
Clothed in power and in grace
the name above all other names.
The name above all other names.
