In His Midst

From Psalm 29:3-4:  “The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord, over mighty waters.  The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.”

Life’s calmest seas

Facing coming storms

Never alone

In His midst, strength forms

 

From God, our hope

Reaching out His hand

Safely sheltered

Upon His command

 

Witness His peace

Quieting these waves

Triumphant’s might

Father’s grace shall serve

 

Darkness retreats

Hearing comfort’s voice

Glory thunders

All saints will rejoice

 

Mercy rescues

Breathing with God’s love

Everlasting

Blessings from above

The lyrics and music of “O God, Our Help in Ages Past” is a familiar hymn to many.  Inspired by Psalm 90, the lyrics were composed by English hymn writer and theologian, Isaac Watts, in 1708.

    • Susan, I appreciate you picking up on “hearing comfort’s voice.” Sometimes it helps to step away from a project for a bit, then the Lord shines His light. Blessings to your own creative spirit, God is near!

  1. “Darkness retreats hearing Comfort’s voice”…the words are beautiful. I love the hymn too, Richard. Music speaks to me. What a beautiful Psalms (and my mind works in strange ways as after my hymn my mind went to one of my favorites, “The Sound of Music”…it all set the stage for my imagination!)!
