I will wait and hold fast to your word

Worshiping with the Meredith First Baptist people was a sacred, joyful time today.               They always have a time of “Praise” during which we sing modern praise songs, led by          a gifted group of musicians, playing in a very understated manner. (One song,                  “Stay and Wait” was accompanied initially by very faint drums that sounded like                      a single, steady heart beat).   The songs they choose are always worshipful but today’s       lyrics were Psalm-like and the congregational singing was unusually reverent.                          I could sense the “sacred throng” joining us.

The message was from Psalm 92, noted to be “A Song For The Sabbath,”  and one I read fairly often. It begins:

    It is good to give thanks to the Lord,

       to sing praises to your name, O most High;

    to declare your steadfast love in the morning,

      and your faithfulness by night,

    to the music of the lute and the harp,

       to the melody of the lyre.  

   For you, O Lord, have made me glad by your work;

      at the works of your hands I sing for joy.

Who spoke the Earth and sky to form
Who sets the sun and calls the dawn
Who breathed me out of dust to life
With the will to trust or run and hideI will stay should the world by me fold
Lift up Your name as the darkness falls
I will wait and hold fast to Your word
Heart on Your heart and my eyes on YoursWho loved me through my rebel way
Who chose to carry all my shame
Who breaths in me with endless life
The king of glory Jesus ChristI will stay should the world by me fold
Lift up Your name as the darkness falls
I will wait and hold fast to Your word
Heart on Your heart and my eyes on YoursGod of wonder and God of grace
Let my soul stand always to praise You
Fix my eyes on Your perfect way
And I’ll never look backI will stay should the world by me fold
Lift up Your name as the darkness falls
I will wait and hold fast to Your word
Heart on Your heart and my eyes on YoursWho lifts the poor and heals the blind
Who trampled death for all mankind
Who stands for all with arms stretched wide

My King forever Jesus Christ
