“… O Sovereign Lord, holy and true,…“ Rev 6:10
Lord what do I say.
The words seem stuck somewhere in the depths of my heart.
I can feel thoughts bubbling and boiling in pictures that cannot be put into words. May there should be something like a Polaroid camera, taking snapshots of my thoughts, magically linking them to words, shaping them into sentences
Holy and true.
How can anyone begin to define,
into a few pithy words the
awesomeness of all that You are.
no gap between your words, your actions, your motives.
Showing the same picture to all,
no different faces for different people.
All who come to you and seek you find you to be consistent, faithful, true.
Completely unlike any other we’ve ever known.
Not squeezable into any mould
Can’t be labelled and pigeon-holed
Constantly surprising and yet constantly consistent
Unceasingly working and yet completely at rest
Intangible, Invisible and yet Alpha Reality
Love unfeigned and unforced
Pure Light, no shadows
Wisdom clear and true
Unwavering Defender of my cause
Supreme Emperor of the Universe
because truly the universe
and all that’s in it is Yours
King who should be obeyed without a question
yet, respecting us… giving us freedom to choose
You are complete in Yourself
And yet You seek us, Your people
To be the fullness of You who fills all in all!
Fount of every blessing
Desire of every heart
Light of Life
The Rock of Escape
The unbreachable fortress
The unscaleable wall of fire
Gives me His shield of victory
Sustains me with His right hand
Speaks truth to dispel all darkness
Instructs me with a glance from His eyes
Upholds me lest I fall
Carries me when I am weary
Rejoices over me with singing
Quiets me with His love.
Oh to Grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be
And yet am set free by His love.
New mercies every morning
Download from His heart to mine
To him who loves us
and has freed us from our sins by his blood…
To the King of ages,
the only God,
be honor and glory forever and ever.
Rev 1:6 & 1Tim 1:17 ESV
