Weekend Words & Sunday Stanzas – My Hymns & Songs – 09/30/2018 – A Shout Out

How about a new series?!

Okay.

To close out the year (the last three months), I will revive Weekend Words & Sunday Stanzas to go through some of my favorite songs. Specifically, I want to cover the songs that have had a major impact on my life, and more specifically on my spiritual life.

So, how about we begin at the beginning?

A New Shout to the Lord

One song that has perennially been there for me is from the very beginning: meaning, from the day I first bent my knee to my Lord as Savior.  It has played (not by my doing) for every major life event, as well (Deciding to go to college, starting a ministry, moving to Arizona, finding my wife, changing churches, accepting ministry positions).  But it started with playing as I first went to the altar to pray, on January 9, 2000.

So, why not share the version that started it all:

Shout to the Lord – Darlene Zschech

And for good measure, one of my favorite renditions:

Shout the Lord – The Insyderz

Lyrics

My Jesus, my Saviour
Lord there is none like You
All of my days I want to praise
The wonders of Your mighty love

My comfort, my shelter
Tower of refuge and strength
Let every breath, all that I am
Never cease to worship You

Shout to the Lord all the Earth, let us sing
Power and majesty, praise to the King
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
At the sound of Your name

I sing for joy at the work of Your hand
Forever I’ll love You, forever I’ll stand
Nothing compares to the promise I have
In You

My Jesus, my Saviour
Lord there is none like You
All of my days I want to praise
The wonders of Your mighty love

You’re my comfort
(My comfort)
And my shelter
(My shelter)
You’re my tower of refuge and strength
Let every breath, all that I am
Never cease to worship You

Shout to the Lord all the Earth, let us sing
Power and majesty, praise to the King
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
At the sound of Your name

I sing for joy at the work of Your hand
Forever I’ll love You, forever I’ll stand
Nothing compares to the promise I have
In You

A few quick thoughts:

When we seek God, we will be filled with wonder. It becomes impossible to not be fascinated by all that He as done and can do, most importantly that He is powerful enough to create literally everything and then redeem His creation from the Fall we created through sin.

And at the end of history, mountains will bow down and the seas will roar as they are consumed by fire as He ushers in the new heavens and Earth.

So, He deserves all our praise. May we shout it loud!

  1. That is a really good song. It’s been a while since I’ve heard it.
